Easy to pack treats for your family and friends
Every time one of our team have traveled home, their loved ones have asked a million questions about Singapore and Asia. For those who have never traveled through this region it evokes thoughts of an exotic paradise and tropical romance.
For those of us wanting to share some of Singapore’s rich and romantic heritage with friends and family on distant shores, we have curated a collection of easy to pack and post Singapore inspired gifts.
From fun kitchen accents for the cooks, to chic bar accessories for the cocktail enthusiast, our mementos will allow you to bestow an everlasting memory of Singapore to your loved ones.
For the Kitchen
A new edition to this collection we have a beautifully packaged pair of mugs designed by local artist Thain Lin. The traditional Chinese Dragon and Phoenix - emblems of the Emperor and Empress and representing Yin and Yang. The decorative box will is a gift in itself and the large mugs, welcome for hearty drinks in Singapore.
“You can’t go wrong when it comes to tea towels” – so says one of our owners Rob. “I have gifted these to friends and family in New Zealand, Australia and Sweden and they have been really well received, not to mention easy to pack”.
Go for Singapore themed printed teatowels of China Town by Singaporean artist Christine Lau created from her leafy Holland Village apartment, or our simpler design carrying the classic palm tree motif, available in sea green and royal blue and orange.
Bar accessories often make a super gift for gentlemen, and ours are handcrafted in India. Our coasters easily stow away in your bag for safe travel, and the small ice bucket is also a handy size to fit in travel luggage.
Designed by Singaporean artists, our cards reflect the architecture and familiar scenes of Singapore life. Thain Lin who is a well known figure on the Singapore Sketching Scene recently also designed a series of Christmas cards for us.
There is also a neat collection of 5 large blank gift cards of photographs of old Singapore including a photo of two rickshaw’s in front of the original Raffles Hotel. One of the men in the photographs visited Singapore in the 1930’s and we were very lucky to be able to get the negatives from his adventures. Each card also has a story on the back related to the photograph.
Ending off with one of our favorite products - STP’s cushion covers collection! Our bold designed cushion covers come in an array of colors and styles that will compliment many decors. Shop the selection and remember to request to exclude fillers in your order if you want to send them in the post.
These fold up quick and easy and the soft velvet selection are a luxurious gift.
All these wonderful gifts and many many more treasures are available online or in our two stores. Please come in and talk to our knowledgeable team.
If you do end up bringing gifts all over the world to your loved ones, we would love to see snaps and pictures from them sitting in those homes, and feature them on our Instagram account - Follow and TAG us at @singaporetradingpost on Instagram
