We’re exactly a week away from Christmas, so if you haven’t gotten your Christmas gifts yet… good luck. We kid. But we do have a simple way out for you: get gift cards. Sure, some people might say it’s not personal but hey, if you get it from a store you know they always visit, that’s pretty personal, right? At least you’re gifting them something useful and not another mug that they don’t need. Here are some stores in Singapore that actually sells gift cards, both online and offline.
