Still want more? Go on, add in that Personalised Reindeer Sack too or explore their gorgeous collection of personalised baby gifts and gift hampers, perfect for Christmas or any occasion!

2. Busy Boards by BusyBoardies

Super-cute alert! Hand-built in Singapore by design expert and mum, Elena, BusyBoardies sell the most beautiful activity boards we’ve ever seen!

Designed for babies and toddlers to practice their fine motor skills, don’t be surprised if older siblings and friends join in too! Be it their signature ping pong ball chute, light switches, shoelace or mirror - there’s plenty on the boards to keep little inquisitive minds (and fingers) occupied. Free shipping within Singapore and with the option of personalising a board - add a name and choose from an array of gorgeous colours; they really are a must-have for your baby!

3. Lego Bugatti Chiron 42083 on Lazada

Got an older (15+) Lego fan on your hands? Literal tears of joy are assured with the uber sexy Lego Bugatti Chiron. Developed in partnership with Bugatti Automobiles S.A.S, this set is a dream for car lovers and engineering aficionados. Complete with a rear wing, 8-speed gearbox with paddle gearshift, W16 engine, steering wheel, suspension and spoked rims, it comes in a luxurious box packaging with a collector's booklet too.

4. A Personalised Storybook - Where’s Next Teddy from Not On The High Street

Be the cool Aunt (or Uncle) who gifts little ones books and we promise, it won’t be just the parents who will love you for it! Kids adore stories, and especially ones that feature them. This personalised storybook ‘Where’s Next Teddy’ puts the child at the heart of the storyline. As easy as creating a character that looks like the child (choose gender, hair colour, glasses and there’s even a wheelchair option), typing their name and instantly, they become a part of the story! This gift version features a padded cushion cover and a Teddy plush toy.

5. Luvabella Doll from Selfridges

With true to life expressions - talking, laughing and crying, the Luvabella doll is still very high on the ‘what I want from Santa’ list. What with the talent to be fed and even ask for more food when she’s hungry, there’s plenty to keep little girls (and boys) engaged. A hard find in Singapore, the safest way to get it here is to order through Selfridges and cough up the shipping cost! Believe, us when we say - it is worth it!

6. SYMA X20 Pocket Drone from Toys R Us

This may be the smallest model of toy drones by Syma, but it still packs quite a punch! Suitable for novices and kids, this is the perfect (and pocket-friendly) model to get them started young. The one key take-off and landing function will allow your little ones to fly it without any prior skills while the one touch down function ensures it flies down slowly when low on power. Easy, and guarded against fatality - that’s money well spent we’d say!

7. A Day or Several at SuperPark Singapore
