Acala Stem

Acala Stem

These are no ordinary gifts. These gifts can change the world! This Christmas choose to support a social enterprise in Cambodia that’s empowering women to work from home and become financially independent.

Acala Stem has a range of high-quality Christmas gifts made from ultra-soft 50/50 lotus and organic cotton fabric, manually woven on a traditional wooden loom, which requires no water, gas, electricity or oil to operate with no chemical dyes. Just a highly skilled and highly valued artisan who’s weaving knowledge has been passed down for generations across Asia.

Green luxury newcomer Acala Stem has been making waves this year, with their strong ethical values, including Community, Kindness, Natural Beauty, Sustainability and Transparency. And with affordable organic lotus/cotton blends, there are prices to suit all budgets.

Their Lotus All Season Body Wrap is a unique scarf for all seasons, ultra-lightweight and cooling, with super absorbency for a humid climate like ours. The perfect companion as a savasana wrap and wonderful for all meditation practices and post-yoga body wrap! The Lotus Eye Pillow makes for a thoughtful gift and comes with a flaxseed filling that lightly massages the delicate facial muscles and calms the facial nerves. The internal casing is refillable for the longevity of the product and can also be topped up with aromatherapy scents - a gift they’ll keep for years to come. But, that’s not all, you can also choose lotus and organic cotton scrunchies, all-purpose bags as well as beautiful glass and bamboo bottles!

For those who love their beauty sleep, there’s the Pure Lotus Beauty Sleep Mask, lined with the incredible 100% lotus fabric – an organic, natural botanical, which is amazing for the skin. Acala Stem’s lotus microfibre has been clinically tested with antibacterial activity (antibiosis) of greater than 99%*. This is big news for keeping the skin clear and preventing any further promotion of acne from contact.

You have the assurance that every purchase of these products supports and empowers women in Cambodia to become financially independent, with a fair wage and flexible working conditions. The same you’d expect for your own loved ones because Acala Stem thinks every person on earth deserves this. 

Acala Stem’s gifts prove we can change the world, one path-breaking purchase at a time.

Sonos One

Sonos One

The holidays may look a little different this year, but with the right sound, a favourite movie, or soundtrack and you can make things a whole lot better and brighter! A great gift for the multi-tasking mum, the Sonos One can assist hands-free via its Amazon Alexa or Google Assistant capabilities. Play a lullaby, set feeding alarms, answer questions or just enjoy some good music on the patio!

The Sonos One is also a worthy companion for streaming white noise so your baby or toddler can drift off to sleep, effortlessly. Its compact design is perfect for small spaces and can even fit on a changing table.

And if mum is also working from home, the Sonos One is fabulously productive! She can schedule meetings with voice assistance or find that moment of peace by syncing her One with a meditation app. There’s even the ability to add the Calm app to her Sonos and schedule some much-needed unwinding after a long day.

Don't be fooled by its small size - it is loud enough to fill a small to medium-sized room! The compact design fits just about anywhere. It is humidity resistant so you can even put it in the bathroom!

Want an option without a microphone? Consider the Sonos One SL, which features the same great sound without the microphone (though you can always turn it off on Sonos One). 

Don’t miss the Sonos Christmas promotion! From 4 to 27 December 2020, save $40 ($289, RRP: $329) on the Sonos One and $30 on the One SL ($269, RRP: $299) only on tcacoustic.asia, Lazada, Shopee and Harvey Norman.

Wink Silk

From ancient Chinese dynasties till today, silk continues to hold its reputation for being the finest natural fabric in the world. It is also often recommended by Dermatologists as an excellent warrior against sleep-creases, that eventually become wrinkles!

Give the gift of good sleep, skin and hair to your loved ones this Christmas with Wink Silk’s wide range of pure silk products.

Wink Silk was an idea conceived to get us ‘Back to the Bedroom’, ditching social invites and going off-grid for occasional date nights with yourself.

Having searched far and wide to source and partner with the world’s most acclaimed silk suppliers, Wink Silk products use 22mm 100% pure Mulberry silk - the Queen of all silks!

Choose from a range of Wink silk bed sheets that come in four different hues - Ivory, Rose Petal, Silver Metal and Champagne. They come in a set with 2 pillowcases, 1 fitted sheet and 1 duvet cover.

You can also choose to invest in Silk Pillowcases that come with signature Wink embroidery, beautifully wrapped in a gift box. Available in a wide range of stunning colours including gender-neutral ones, they make the perfect gift for anyone needing some downtime (who doesn’t!). Want matching pillowcases for your toddler? Wink Silk also sells pillowcases in Toddler sizes complete with Aqua Wink embroidery and presented in their children’s gift box.

Wait there’s more. You can also get Silk Eye Masks and hair ties at Wink Silk. Wink eye masks are made of the best Mulberry silk with just the right amount of shine, thickness and softness to ensure a night of totally uninterrupted beauty sleep.
