We think these are great and you should have them.
Serve In Style
Oak Village Cheese Boards, $68 each, from Atomi
We were inspired to put together cheese and charcuterie boards after we saw these. Choose from four types of wood: cherry (spring), magnolia (summer), walnut (fall) and birch (winter). And, guess what? They’re not that hard to clean: use hot water, a soft sponge, and a wee bit of mild dishwashing soap. Work in gentle circular motions to remove all food. Rinse, wipe clean and allow to dry upright.
Zink Small Boxcar bag, US$495 (S$678), from zinkeveryday.com.
Save animals from the fur and leather trade, and still look chic? We’re in. This Italian handbag is fashioned out of vegan leather – cork that’s sustainably harvested from centuries-old trees in Sardinia.
Gelato on a stick
Popsorbettos, $4.90 each, from Popbar
Keep a few of these gluten- and lactose-free treats made with real fruit – no artificial flavours and preservatives – in your freezer. They’re great to have when kids drop in during the holidays. Provided you can stop yourself from polishing off the lot, of course!
Green With Envy

Whether you need to clarify, hydrate or brighten skin, these can help you achieve a healthy-looking glow with nutritious ingredients like acai berries, ginseng and honey.
Sunny & Wild
$15, from Mujosh
What we love about this sunglasses case? Besides the colourful illos, the fact that it folds flat when not in use.
In Good Spirits
Marin Natural Bar Cabinet, $1,699, from Crate and Barrel.
A solid home for your wines, spirits, tumblers and stemware, this handsome elm wood cabinet was assembled using the Chinese carpentry technique of wood-onwood joinery – no screws and nails.
