Gourmandises de Noël from Odette ($68)

Asia’s 50 Best Pastry Chef 2023, Louisa Lim of 3 Michelin Star Odette, has curated a limited edition festive dessert box ($68) comprising three exquisite petits gâteaux. The all-white L’Exotique, inspired by the enchanting wintry snow, features a medley of tropical fruits including mango, lychee and pineapples, all encased in coconut mousse and a cloud-like Jasmine tea-infused Chantilly cream.

The perfect gift for the gin lovers in your life, this limited-edition Christmas gin is chock-full of spice, fruit and juniper. Launched annually during the festive season, this ingenious creation is the brainchild of Cameron Mackenzie, the brand’s co-founder and distiller, who first created the gin in 2015 as a tribute to his late mother Wilma. Made by distilling Christmas puddings, then aged in 100-year-old muscat barrels, the gin boasts aromatics of classic juniper and a hint of cinnamon, backed up with a rich palate and a touch of sweetness from the muscat.

If you’re trying to score some brownie points with your parents, in-laws, or bosses this festive season, you may want to consider getting them this sleek and chic decanter, which also doubles up as a wine preserver. Aptly named eto, which means ‘again’ in Welsh, this beautifully designed device gives users the freedom to enjoy their wine again and again, in their own time. What we love best about eto is that it is easy and intuitive to use – simply open your wine and decant into the eto. The device’s unique preservation system creates a seal between the wine and the air, reducing the wine’s exposure to oxygen and slowing down the oxidation process. Once poured into an eto, the wine will stay fresh for at least two weeks.
