With Christmas just around the corner, everyone's rushing to get all their gifts in check for those closest to them

While making our loved ones feel special is all part of the fun for Christmas, one should not go to extreme lengths or break their banks just to afford a nice gift for everyone in their lives.

From picky present receivers to that one person that can't make up their mind every single time, the perfect option (and the safest!) would be to get a blend of items packed under one cute bow.

On top of that, this is the time to experiment with a variety of brands and show some love to hardworking Malaysian business owners who've curated some of the more enchanting gifts.
