Running out of gift ideas? This list is made up of unique items found in overseas retailers because we don’t like to give (and receive) body lotion, Ferrero Rocher etc. And really, because we can easily get them via travellers!

The messy desk owner 
If your neighbour has a desk so full you can’t tell if they’re documents or junk, it’s very likely that it hasn’t been cleaned for a long period of time either. Drop a subtle reminder for spring cleaning with these incredibly cute desktop vacuum cleaner. Great for gift exchange and the not-so-close co-workers too!

The tech guy

What could possibly intrigued a tech guy? Try this: the Google cardboard – a virtual reality (VR) platform developed by Google for use with a fold-out cardboard mount for a mobile phone. By looking through the cardboard, one can experience crossing the dessert, floating on a lazy river or play pong in space. Being the ultimate tech guy, he could even develop his own VR experience from scratch!

Minions Popcorn Bucket from Universal Studios S$45, Assorted items from Line Friends, South Korea

The Cutie-Pie
The one who has a soft spot for all things cute and adorable. Though this could be the easiest to shop for by giving Hello Kitty and the likes, we can do much better than that. Brighten up her dull work day with a minion popcorn bucket from disneyland, Line friends figurines from Line Friends Store in South Korea, or a Sanrio Highlighter of her favourite character (Gudetama, Hello Kitty, My Melody and more)!

The forever hungry

Unless you want to be labelled insincere and cheap-skate, giving a box of Ferrero Rocher will not work. Feed the bottomless pit with yummy goodies from Japan, Hong Kong, Korea & Taiwan!
