When in doubt, you can’t go wrong with chocolates, cookies, and champagne. Singapore’s own chocolate kween, Janice Wong, has just the right Christmas hamper for you. And the best part is, her packaging always scores major aesthetic points – so there’s no need to hunt for an additional gift wrapper.
The Chocolate and Cookie with Champagne hamper ($85) is self-explanatory – it comes with an assortment of 7 cookies, a bottle of champagne, and an assorted box of 5 chocolates. You can’t choose the exact chocolates you want, but you’ll get a random selection from 20 different flavours – including Christmas exclusives like Bergamot, Gingerbread Caramel, Peppermint, and Pine Nut.
If you don’t want to buy a whole hamper, the chocolates are also available for purchase individually, starting from $26 for a box of 5. Just make sure to pre-order them at least 24 hours in advance.

There are 2 types of people in the world – those who live to eat, and those who just eat to survive. As long as they eat 2 or 3 times a day, can already.
For the latter camp, Christmas hampers filled with chocolates, snacks, and cheese may not be the best option. Don’t worry, we’ve kept that in mind while writing this list. The Gift Of Wonder hamper ($45) is a safe bet for your friends who prefer splurging on wellness and #selfcare.
It has a travel-size mango shower gel, shea soap, shea body butter, mango lip butter, shea hand balm, and jute soap bag – all beautifully wrapped in a handwoven, reusable gift basket made from recycled paper.
