The gift-worthy set also comes with a nifty 200ml bottle of Roku Gin and some stylish – and limited edition – merch such as a slick Roku balloon glass, wooden coaster, and a ceramic gin shot glass.

Christmas Yuzu Pleats ($109)

From Maison Chisaka

This isn't your usual yuletide log cake. Inspired by architectural aesthetics, this work of art showcases the winter season's best: Yuzu. Once you've finally gotten over how pretty it looks, it is time to cut into the cake. In it are juicy layers of citrusy bergamot curd, moist almond sponge and crispy buttery yuzu shortcrust. Though it is the vivacious yuzu cream cheese mousse that forms the geometric shape of the cake – trust us, you'll be licking the back of your spoons in no time. Dusted with 24k gold, this is the cake to bring if you're thinking of showing up to a party in style.

From Dolcetto

The return of Dolcetto promises to herald in the best Italian Yuletide cheer around town. Designed to showcase our favourite Italian flavours, three Yule logs flavours are created this year. They are chocolate caramel hazelnut, lime cream cheese and apple, and pistachio cherries nougat. Pick your poison according to what satisfies your sweet tooth. For us, the pistachio cherries nougat combination was a well-balanced homerun that delighted our tastebuds with sweet and sour expressions and hints of turpentine.
