Ah Guo Tote Bags, Changi Scent Series (Scent Candles, Reed Diffuser, Perfume Oil)

For a piece of Singapore’s pride and joy no matter where you go, GIFT by Changi Airport has a range of themed merch including tumblers, mugs, tote bags and cutlery sets that would make wonderfully non-tacky souvenirs. Our personal faves are the Changi Scent candles, perfume oils and reed diffusers, for that aromatic whiff of familiarity when you set foot into the terminals.

It’s not tough to #SupportLocal when our homegrown brands are worthy of a spot in the international fashion scene, including Gnome & Bowso named because their premium leather goods are inspired by classic storybooks. For maximum style and protection, invest in one of their RFID wallets which prevents electronic pickpocketing and keeps your credit cards safe.
