Festive Gift Ideas for the 2023 year-end.
Christmas and the year-end are just weeks away but is it time to start planning gifts for your loved ones? Well, it might still be a bit early; the light-up at Orchard Road has only just begun. But hey, you know what they say, early bird gets the worm and all that. Those who start early have the most time to prepare the most thoughtful gifts too.
Without further ado, here’s my list of gift recommendations for this 2023 festive season! Since I’m also starting early with this, I’ll likely be expanding this list all the way till Christmas. I’ll also make extra efforts to ensure I include a variety of price tags because, you know, inflation is the one Christmas gift all of us are getting, whether we’ve been nice or naughty! We don’t want that to stop someone from getting a present, do we?

1. Jabra Elite 10 (Tech Gift)
As any audiophile and I bet you’d be told wired gear is the only real way to listen to music. Bluetooth earphones and speakers are superbly convenient, that’s undeniable, but if you want your highs and lows with pristine fidelity, wired. Only way to listen. (Wag finger)
The new Jabra Elite 10, described by the Danish maker as their most advanced earbuds for work and life, doesn’t challenge this axiom, but it comes close if you ask me. I wouldn’t say the overall sound quality of the Elite 10 is consistently superior to wired earphones/IEMs of the same price range, but unless you’re that discerning, I don’t think you’d actually notice the difference.
When you factor in the convenience, the higher Bluetooth 5.3 version, the superior noise cancellation that adjusts to the environment, and the comfort, these 2023 wireless earbuds are a clear winner. Speaking of comfort, the Jabra Elite 10 features unique oval-shaped ear tips that promise unmatched comfort while not compromising on sealing.
There’s also spatial sound with head tracking, described by Jabra as powered by Dolby. Simply put, with the right tracks/audio, one will experience the heavenly sensation of being at the heart of music that flows around and above.
To know more about the Jabra Elite 10, check out my full review!
As for price, launch promotions have just ended; the full price is SGD 378/-. But it’s the year-end, and so there are festive promotions! At Jabra’s official stores in Lazada and Shopee. The Elite 10 will be available for SGD 348/- from now till Dec 31, 2023.
PS: If you’re looking for a more affordable Jabra earpiece, and one that’s great for sports, the Jabra Elite 4 is having a holiday sale from Nov 24 to Dec 17, 2023. The discounted price is SGD 98/-, which is 46 percent off the usual SGD 180/- price. Available at at selected retailers, and Jabra’s official stores in Lazada and Shopee.
2. Gryphon Tea Company “Band-tastic” Botanically Cold Brewed Sparkling Tea Flavours (Beverage Gift)
Next up, we have a healthier choice and affordable gift idea that would be great for, say, a festive home gathering.

4. Samsung Galaxy Fold5 (Tech Gift)
Last weekend, I was going about town filming different things with my Samsung S22 and DJI Pocket 2. As usual, no thanks to the crowds and humidity, I forgot to scrutinize exposure levels. I ended up with a whole gig of usable but poorly exposed footage.
That was when I remembered the fortnight when I had a Samsung Galaxy Fold5 review unit on hand.
This latest Samsung flagship folding phone is really such a magnificent imaging engine, you see. I shot over a hundred photos and video clips to test the Fold5 camera and practically all captures were properly or even superbly balanced, focused, and luscious in colour.
That’s on top of the Fold5 having a fast, battery-efficient Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 series processor, ample RAM and storage, and of course, that gorgeous, tablet-like 7.6” AMOLED main screen. (The crease is invisible when the screen is unfolded and lit, btw)
Please read my mini review of the Fold5 here!
And yes, I know the Samsung Galaxy Fold5 is an expensive phone with or without a telco contract. But if that special someone is worth the splurge, you can purchase the Fold5 from online platforms with coupons and vouchers to save your hard-earned money.
5. Coravin Debuts Limited Edition Festive Timeless Devices (Lifestyle Gift)
Rather than giving wine this 2023 festive season, how about gifting a classy wine preservation system?

Here’s a gift perfect for dad, the bro, the male bestie, or that very special dude in your life.
2023 marks the 25th anniversary of a fragrance icon, the original BOSS Bottled Eau de Toilette. To celebrate the occasion in spectacular style, BOSS Fragrances is unveiling its latest launch: the BOSS Bottled Elixir.
The newest olfactive chapter within the BOSS Bottled family, BOSS Bottled Elixir is an elevated interpretation of modern masculinity. The most highly concentrated BOSS bottled composition to date, this luxurious addition to the BOSS Bottled family will help any guy find his inner light and be his own BOSS.
As for the fragrance, I quote directly. “Top notes of incense and cardamom essences emit a warm, vibrant impression while a heart of vetiver and patchouli entices with an earthy imprint. BOSS Bottled Elixir develops to reveal a base of cedarwood essence and labdanum absolute, serving a strong, woody charisma and a burst of bold masculinity.”

From November 14th and with a minimum SGD 20 purchase at Toys“R”Us, customers will be able to redeem exclusive collectibles designed by Craig & Karl, including a cutlery set, travel mug, and tote bag. On a weekly basis, limited-edition bears will also be released for redemption at SGD 15, with a minimum purchase of SGD 20 on the week’s featured category of toys.
Additionally, lucky gift bags with specially curated toys will be available for purchase upon a minimum spend of SGD 50.
Apart from the collaboration, Toys“R”Us is having many other festive promotions too. For example, the exclusive Countdown Game Sticker Pack for Star Card members, which features stickers that can be used to decorate gifts. Or the Advent Calendar Lucky Dip from Nov 24 to Dec 13. Upon making a SGD 60 purchase (non-stackable), customers will be eligible to select a number on the calendar and open the door to reveal a delightful surprise.
