Singapore is emerging as a key design mecca, with Singaporean fashion designers and entrepreneurs being acknowledged locally and around the globe. As its golden jubilee draws nearer, we pay homage to these talents by rounding up our top picks for style and home, in this special edition of our SG50 gift guide.
GIFTS FOR THE HOME
A celebration like this doesn’t come often. Many stores are still offering SG50 exclusives so it’s not too late to get your hands on unique furniture and homewares. Get the folks reminiscing about the good old kampong days by gifting some Singaporean designer furniture and homewares, engraved SG50 spoons or – an antique Traditional Ice Kacang machine! For those residing overseas and do not have the privilege of being part of the celebrations, surprise them with a limited edition Singapore map or a quirky English Rose Singapore flag cushion. These SG50 gifts will get them singing Majulah Singapura in no time!

SG50 also gives us yet another excuse for more shopping.

These chic picks will have you straying away from the cookie-cutter red and white looks in no time. Spend National Day strutting around the streets of Singapore in these stylish pieces – together with one of our Singapore shopping guides. Now that’s one way to celebrate the nation’s 50th!
