It’s also the first of its type to print pho­tos with a pro­tec­tive trans­par­ent coat­ing that pre­vents smudges and degra­da­tion. HOW MUCH $249 from LG re­tail­ers; photo pa­per is $29 (36 sheets).

AB­BIE ROSE BOOK

As the ti­tle sug­gests, Ab­bie Rose & the Magic Suit­case: Telling the Ot­ters to Leave Home was a Re­ally Big Mis­take teaches kids all about smooth-coated ot­ters that live in Sin­ga­pore’s wet­lands. Buy the book and make a trip down to spot the ot­terlyadorable crea­tures in the wild.

HOW MUCH $12.06 be­fore GST from ma­jor book­stores or from www.mar­shall­cavendish.com/gen­ref

TIF­FANY PER­FUME

There’s some­thing about the iconic turquoise box that makes ev­ery mum’s heart beat a lit­tle bit faster. This one houses Tif­fany & Co.’s Time­less Di­a­mond lim­ited edi­tion eau de par­fum (75ml), which fea­tures notes of vert de man­darine, iris, musk and patchouli. HOW MUCH $176 from http://sg.shilladu­tyfree.com

DYSON AIR­WRAP

Fun and fas­ci­nat­ing aren’t usu­ally how you de­scribe the use of a hair styler, but chances are you would with a Dyson Air­wrap – es­pe­cially when you are curl­ing your locks. Place a sec­tion of hair near the bar­rel and it “mag­i­cally” at­tracts and wraps hair around.

The Air­wrap is also de­signed to quickly smoothen un­ruly tresses or add vol­ume to flat hair. Like the brand’s famed Su­per­sonic dryer, the Air­wrap prom­ises not to over­heat and dam­age hair. It’s also safe to let your child han­dle it be­cause the sur­face al­ways re­mains cool. HOW MUCH $699 (for the com­plete set), from https:// shop.dyson.com.sg

TARTE

Mums love Tarte for its der­ma­tol­o­gisttested and cru­elty-free makeup that re­ally de­liv­ers. This Christ­mas, why not gift her its Pineap­ple of My Eye col­lec­tors set?

The glam­orous pal­ette fea­tures 24 eye shad­ows, two blushes, a bronzer and a high­lighter. There’s also liq­uid eye­liner, mas­cara, and lip res­cue in an ex­clu­sive new shade of pink. Check out Sephora’s other gor­geous fes­tive cof­frets while you’re shop­ping, too. HOW MUCH $85 from www.sephora.sg and in-store.

HATCHIMALS

What are in­side these mys­tery eggs? Cute lit­tle fig­urines that glow in the dark! This is Hatchimals Col­leg­gtibles Neon Night­glow 12-Pack Egg Car­ton in Sea­son 4, which at­test to their pop­u­lar­ity. To crack the shell, rub each egg’s pur­ple heart lov­ingly un­til it turns pink, then gen­tly press down. Ideal for kids from age five.
