While the Circuit Breaker may be coming to an end, social distancing is not yet a thing of the past. Some measures are easing but social gatherings are still prohibited and visiting has been restricted to household members and parents only for the foreseeable future. Even work from home seems like it’s going to last a little longer.
So, knowing that physical meet-ups are not going to happen anytime soon, there are still ways to show we care and are thinking about others.
Whether for loved ones, friends, business associates, colleagues or even for some self-care, here some thoughtful gifts and care packages in Singapore to show just how much you care.
The serious business of mixology and bartending aside, GudSht is serving up fun puns and whimsical-themed bottled cocktails.

With a mantra to provide warmth and goodwill between friends, family and business associates GudSht has the most interesting bottled cocktails ready to be delivered while we all practice social distancing.

Unicorn Barf, anyone? Made with a base of Roku Gin, Campari, homemade yuzu rose infusion, butterfly pea syrup infusion, honey, plain bitters, and sprinkled with silver glitter, this cocktail is refreshing and glamorous. Bubble tea fans can opt for the Mao Cha made with Chita Single Grain Whisky, freshly brewed Thai tea and Crystal Red Jelly Pearls. They even have a Mao Cha Nude version sans any milk and made with Japanese Haku Vodka. Vino lovers will be delighted to know that GudSht even offers the classic sangria aptly named Sangrila Utama Red and White.

The WeCare Pack is all about using care packages to say thank you to those in the frontline in the fight against COVID-19. The pandemic has impacted various communities, lives and businesses. While many of us are able to stay at home, the essential workers are keeping Singapore going. Our parents, spouse, friends or neighbours have to answer to their call of duty just to make sure we are all safe.
A care package is a small gesture of gratitude from the bottom of our hearts to show that together we can overcome, simply because we are #sgunited. Think of this like an anti-virus kit that we need to be strong and healthy at all times.
Continuing to work from home and not going to see your colleagues anytime soon? Send a gift pack to a co-worker anywhere in Singapore and in the world.
