2. Style Theory
Does your girlfriend constantly complain that she has nothing to wear? Then this is the perfect gift for her! While everyone wishes they could have an endless wardrobe of new clothes, it’s both expensive and impractical. Style Theory offers a subscription service where you and your loved ones can always have new goodies for only a fraction of what they would cost if you were to buy them individually. You don’t even have to pay for dry cleaning or delivery!
Send a one-month Style Theory subscription at S$99 (U.P. S$129) to a special someone in 3 Ways; a digital card via email or a physical card via post or purchase a gift card at their pop-up store at NomadX, Plaza Singapura. It’s easy — keep three styles on rotation, swap anytime, and never get bored of what’s sitting in your wardrobe.
3. Unna Nordic
A gift for the woman in your life that even you can use? Unna Nordic is a premium organic cosmetics product line from Finland with a skincare range that is unisex! The handpicked restorative and rejuvenating raw materials from the European Finnish wild forests are the main ingredients in this pure Nordic experience. All the ingredients are researched and tested in Finland.
We’d try one of these; the Collagen Booster “Aina” (S$120) is a natural antioxidant serum with skin brightening rhubarb extract and fermented pomegranate extract, which activates the collagen production; and the PHA Spa Peel ”Viola” (S$66) contains gently exfoliating PHA-acids suitable for Singapore as you don’t need to avoid direct sunlight after this gentle peel treatment.
Tell your girl how much you love her with the Love Collection (from S$75) featuring bracelets and necklaces with a ‘love’ design translated into many languages including Mandarin, Hindi, Hebrew, French, Italian, Arabic, German, Russian and Tagalog.
Something exclusive for the special lady? This CHANEL limited edition coffret (S$342) contains the limited edition Rouge Allure N°8 and a 100 ml N°5 eau de parfum in an iconic red glass bottle in a gorgeous red gift box. The timeless fragrance is an avant-garde manifesto, a gift for others and yourself, to wear and to collect.
Your lady will be the most fashionable chick in town with handbags from the Dior Cruise Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Featured above is the Mini ‘Lady Dior’ bag in red flowers silkscreen printed and embroidered calfskin with a detachable chain.
The gift of time is the most precious gift of all. Supple, elegant and luxurious - the Panthere de Cartier watch (from S$5,500) is iconic. More than a timepiece, it is also a piece of jewellery with flexible links doubling up as a bracelet coiled around the wrist. You can’t go wrong with this timeless classic!
Partnering with Master & Dynamic, Louis Vuitton has entered the audio market with the launch of the Horizon Earphones. The French luxury fashion house brings its iconic design to wireless headphones - perfect for audiophiles with style. They come in four designs - black, white, and red Monogram or yellow and blue Louis Vuitton stripes.
A recharged woman makes for a happier and healthier partner. Pamper her with a stay at the luxurious wellness resort, The Farm at San Benito, in Manila, the Philippines. With support from a team of medical professionals, immerse in a world-class detox programme of clean living. The programme (from USD 436) touches on diet, exercise, as well as mental and spiritual enrichment therapies. She’ll thank you for getting her started on a healthier and balanced lifestyle.
Flowers to brighten up her day or surprise her at her workplace? What more can say, “I’m thinking about you!” Whether it’s roses in a crystal cubes, blooms in a box or the gold old classic bouquet, The Floral Atelier has a variety of options to choose from (from S$130). The Eternity Collection flowers have been specially treated and require no watering or maintenance. They will continue to look and feel like fresh flowers for a year.
