Christmas is only next month, but it’s never too early to start looking for the perfect gift for your loved ones (or yourself).

From organisers to self-care items, here are four types of products that will make thoughtful gifts to your friends, family, and yourself.

For getting organised

2023 is just two months away and your friends and family may be searching for a brand new planner to kickstart the new year.

If you are on a strict budget, this planner on Lazada will be your best bet as it only costs $7.90.

Much like Marie Kondo, your Secret Santa recipient may want to get their make-up and skincare products organised.

While there are many desk and make-up organisers on e-commerce platforms, this one is pretty affordable and Shopee’s flash deals will come in handy to snag the product at a steal.

The organiser also comes with portable drawers, large capacity, and costs just $6.99.

For the foodies

If you are a big fan of Nespresso products, you can treat yourself (or your loved one) on your payday to the Nespresso Capsule Coffee Machine.

The SimPlus Nespresso Machine has a 0.75L water tank and the user will be able to store a total of 11 capsules.

This model is a great deal at $97.80, compared to the other Nespresso coffee machines that are currently on the market.

If you know someone who is too busy to make their own sandwiches for breakfast, then this gift would be great for them.

The Simplus Sandwich Maker is wallet-friendly as it only costs $22.90. It has a non-stick coating plate and heats up food within just three minutes.

The product comes in two colours and it can also be used to make crepes or to fry something as simple as an egg.


The sandwich maker can be used to grill, toast, or cook your sandwich.


If you have time to spare every morning, then why not make your own batter and whip up some delicious waffles using an electric waffle maker?

It has a dual non-stick surface, as well as double-sided heating to ensure your waffles are properly cooked and crispy. At just $13.80, this makes for an affordable compact Christmas gift.

You can also make paninis, hash browns, and your favourite breakfast items using the waffle maker. PHOTO CREDIT: SCREENSHOT FROM SHOPEE.


This gift is also suitable for university students who are living in dorms or for those with a smaller kitchen.

For the tech-savvy

If you need to charge all of your Apple and Samsung products at the same time, then the wireless charger three-in-one charging station will do the trick.

Priced at $39.99, the charger boasts a magnetic and portable design and it can also be detached for separate use.

If you are a frequent traveller, you will be happy to know that you can also charge your AirPods as a lightning to USB cable is already pre-installed.

Your smart devices can all be charged within just three hours thanks to the fast-charging wireless charger. PHOTO CREDIT: SCREENSHOT FROM SHOPEE


Living in a tropical country, your friends are likely to be working in an air-conditioned room. It might be a good idea to have a humidifier so that the air would not be too dry.

This wireless air humidifier, priced at $20.93, comes in two colours and has a capacity of 500ml. It displays the battery percentage and  has a quiet diffusion. The device is also compatible with all types of essential oils.


The pack includes a USB charging cable and humidifier cotton stick.


Whether it’s 2012 or 2022, a polaroid camera is always in trend.

The Fujifilm Instax Mini series  can get one and start creating memories with your loved ones for $92. The instant camera also comes with a selfie mirror that will make selfie-taking hassle-free.

You can manually adjust the brightness and make use of the optical viewfinder with target spot to capture your photographs. PHOTO CREDIT: SCREENSHOT FROM SHOPEE
