Christmas Shopping? Move It Online!

In my recent newsletter, I did a feature on doing online shopping for this Christmas season. The reason is simple - Christmas shopping in Orchard Road (the premier shopping belt in Singapore) can really be a daunting affair.

Instead of getting yourself trampled by desperate last minute shoppers, screaming teenagers and wealthy tai-tai (that's Singaporean slang for rich housewives) with enough shopping bags to fill a truckload, perhaps it's wise to move your shopping online. They say everything is available at the click of your mouse.

A feature was ran in Straits Times on Sunday - and I though it will be a good idea to give you a brief run down here:



Arguably, ebay.com is the most popular online shopping website. Okay, so it is not exactly shopping. More like bargaining/auctioning. While many of the sellers are international-based, there is a local version of ebay but with less selection. One feature worth checking is the "Holiday Wizard".






Used to be touted as THE online book site, amazon.com is now more than just books alone. The range of goodies available is amazing, and I have to tell you this - the LOTR Trilogy Special Extended Edition Set!

LOTR Trilogy Special Extended Edition Set!


Now, that will be one of my Christmas wish list!






A boon to men buying intimate gifts for their wives? efrenchkiss.com.sg is the online lingerie store that even provide a men's guide to buy the perfect garment for the women in their lives!




Other sites worth checking:
