Here Are The Best Christmas Gifts To Get Your Loved Ones From Raffles City Shopping Centre
1/6 Bimba Y Lola
Spanish fashion label Bimba Y Lola serves up some serious party looks this festive season. This season's collection features a range of chromatic colours and styles that mimic '80s fashion—think shoulder pads and flared bottoms—with futuristic vibes in the mix. Revellers who want to be a style standout as they paint the town red might want to throw on one of the brand's velvet tops with a midnight blue satin blazer and perhaps complete the look with a fun pair of fuchsia sandal heels.

You can't go wrong with a gift from Furla to your loved ones for Christmas. The Italian brand's new crossbody bags are perfect for everyday use and to even take with you on your holidays this season. Made with calf leather, the bags are available in a range of colours including classic shades such as white, black and burgundy as well as fun patterns like crocodile-embossed calf leather and leopard print.

3/6 Kate Spade New York
What happens when you take inspiration from a girls' night out to produce a fashion collection? American design house Kate Spade New York did just that and the results are positively chic. The winter garden high neck dress would make a playful and feminine Christmas dinner party dress—a gift for yourself, perhaps? Don't forget to elevate the look with a pair of sequin Perry heels. The brand, which is known for its colourful graphic prints and optimistic feminity, is synonymous with joy—making it the perfect store to shop in this festive season.

4/6 Shanghai Tang
We might have just thrown an unforgettable Singapore Tatler Ball this year with "Chinoiserie" as the night's theme, but that doesn't mean we're done with cheongsam-style outfits and East-meets-West accessories. Several of our guests showed up in stylish ensembles by luxury fashion house Shanghai Tang, which celebrates its 25th anniversary this year. The label has brought back key silhouettes and icons with a twist this season. Shopping for the man in your life? Look to the brand's traditional Tang jackets and shirts, which have modern updates. This collection's accessories also pay tribute to the original Pedder Building in Hong Kong—the brand's iconic flagship store that boasts art deco architecture from the 1920s.

Apart from being producers of world-class pens, luxury German manufacturer Montblanc prides itself in precision craft and produces some of the most sought-after timepieces and travel accessories too. If you have hand lettering enthusiasts among your loved ones, gift them the brand's new Meisterstuck Solitaire Calligraphy Fountain Pen which comes with a new Flex nib that is made from gold and known to bend more easily for expressive calligraphy. Timepiece collectors will appreciate the Heritage Pulsograph Limited Edition 100 which combines vintage design codes from the 1940s, modern-day technology, and a pulsograph indicator typically used by medical physicians back in the day.
Alternatively, shop for a good cause by purchasing the brand's Red travel trolley for a wanderlust friend or family member. A portion of sales from the Montblanc Red range will go towards supporting HIV/Aids programmes.

6/6 YSL Beauté
Makeup maestros would be thrilled to receive a special something from YSL Beauté this Christmas—especially it's from the brand's High on Stars holiday collection. Designed by YSL Beauté global beauty director Tom Pecheux, the festive collection includes seven limited edition shades of the Rouge Pur Couture Lipstick, the K-beauty-inspired YSL Le Cushion Encre de Peau, a YSL Face and Eye Palette, and a special holiday edition of the YSL Touche Éclat. The packaging takes inspiration from the iconic YSL star motifs (often featured in their ready-to-wear collections), which appear on the product casings and even on the lipstick bullet itself. Any product from this limited edition collection would make excellent stocking fillers for that beauty junkie in your life.
