Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas #4: Upcycled Licqour Bottle Glassware

A friend of mine has done several bars around the world a favour by taking empty alcohol bottles off them and turning them into up cycled glassware.

My favourite are the Grey Goose Vodka glasses, which come in two sizes:

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas #2: A Great Singapore Novel

Marina Bay Sins – If you know Neil Humphreys’ writing, you’d know that one or two of the things in the book probably happened for real.

OK, this one’s too easy – you just point your friends to the link on iTunes to download the latest from Singapore’s best-selling novelist.

Really good if you’re looking to send someone living overseas something for Christmas, and especially when you’re looking for something really Singaporean.

Last Minute Christmas Gift Ideas #1: Ang Ku Kueh

The colors make you want to sing Christmas songs, only you can’t if you stuff one of these in your mouth. They are by far the best roasted peanut filled Ang Ku Kuehs ever. Buy a dozen and put them in a nice box for the Christmas parties you’ve been invited to at the last minute.

Price: $0.80 each

Other flavours available (but not in Christmassy colors)

Useful Christmas Gifts #1: Frozen Sausage Stylus for iPhone/iPad

If you’ve got friends and family in colder climes, you might want to think about sending this gift their way, because apparently when it gets too cold to go gloveless, it might get a little difficult to operate a touch screen device like an iPhone or iPad.

So, people in Korea have been buying frozen sausages to use as a stylus.

(Or you could just get them this. But hey, you can’t eat the gloves).
