Late-night festive shopping hours at Wisma Atria from Dec 18-23 mean that for one week, you’ll be able to get everything you need – whenever you want.
Give the gift of this heritage American brand’s leather goods. The Cross Stitch Floral Wallet ($175), which features floral prints on textured cross-grain leather, has a compact size that makes it perfect for cards, cash and receipts. And the Uni Coin Case ($175) is a nifty, stylish wallet that unzips for easy access, and keeps coins tucked away neatly.
Sandy getaways call for bright and sunny beachwear from Australian brand Seafolly. The Palm Beach print evokes a coastal jungle, mixing moss-green palm trees, pale pinks, and pops of fuchsia hummingbirds. Wear the cropped top ($99.95) and the leggings ($109.95) under the Tropicana dress ($169.95), a feminine and versatile piece that will take you easily from pool to party.

JEWELLERY AND TIMEPIECES
ALL WATCHES (#01-16)
Sporty men will love the Davosa Apnea Diver Automatic (from $1,650). The Swissmade timepiece is up for the extreme challenges of diving – it is watertight up to 20 ATM (a depth of roughly 200m) – and has a case that can be unscrewed and raised for easy viewing underwater.
MASTERPIECE TIME & JEWELS (#02-04/05)
For a subtle touch of Italian glamour, consider the Leda watch (price unavailable) from Versace. This elegant classic features Roman numerals and a Greek key bezel in a feminine 38mm size.

TIMEWISE BY CORTINA WATCH (#02-33 & #03-24)
The Breguet Tradition GMT wristwatch in 18K rose gold, with a hand-wound movement, is fit for any occasion. Its black, off-centre sub-dial displays a second time zone, and is hand-engraved on a rose engine. This is a timepiece that will appeal to anyone.
TAG HEUER (#02-45 & #03-34)
A great couples’ gift would be this matching pair of Carrera Calibre Heuer 01 chronographs.

Want to take your festive greetings a step up? Say it with a stone – in this case, a precious one from Mauboussin. The Couleur d’Amour pendants ($1,990 each) have multicoloured gems on white gold chains. The amethyst pendant, which symbolises protection, is paved with rubies; while the blue topaz variation, symbolising love, is paved with amethysts.
LEE HWA DIAMOND GALLERY (#02-06)
