December is synonymous with many things - Rainy days, holidays, pumpkin-flavoured coffee. But nothing is more indicative of December than the age-old year-end gift-shopping adventure.
Buying gifts can be stressful, but it doesn't have to be. Avoid the traffic jams, avoid the claustrophobia-inducing crowds, avoid the headache of finding unique gifts in Singapore that show your thoughtfulness and sincerity - we've done it all for you! Everything in mrphy is specially curated - if we didn't like it ourselves, we wouldn't be selling it.
In this day and age, where pigeon-holing people is absolutely not the politically correct thing to do, we're crafting this carefully-concocted gift guide for you folks who know your loved-one, relative, or co-worker has their unique flavour of style and gift preferences but just oh so coincidentally have a slight leaning towards certain behaviours, this guide recommends your best bet.
Oh who are we kidding. We all know someone who falls into one or more of these types. Get this for them, chances are they'll love it.
Oh boy, let's start with the most difficult one. It's especially tricky to get a gift for that person who doesn't like presents or surprises, but I guess we crave the challenge sometimes!
For these individuals, practicality is essential. You don't need them to LOVE the gift at first, but it has to be something they would grow to appreciate due to the value it brings to their lives.
If you're getting something for the tea lover, then look no further than the Torus tea infuser and tea leaf holder set by OMMO - it's as beautiful as it is practical. Leaving only a small footprint on the kitchen counter, the stylish doughnut infuser set can double up as both and infuser as well as a container for tea leaves or sugar. Even the greatest sceptics would find that neat!
The Ortwo pepper mill by Dreamfarm makes grinding spices so much easier, and we highly recommend it! Choose between grinding one-handed for the convenience, or go two-handed for extra speed and an unmatched output. Add in six levels of settings from coarse to super fine, and you have the perfect mill for all spices!

Environmental sustainability is a topic often talked about these days, and we have some great products that are suitable for your eco-conscious friends.
Qualy Design is one of the biggest champions of environmental consciousness in the product design industry, and it's reflected in their quirky and subtly guilt-inducing home accessories, such as the bleaching coral glass mug and polar ice bucket that promote awareness to environmental issues such as climate change and deforestation. Qualy Design is an advocate for sustainable ideas like circular economy and zero waste, and they certainly practice what they preach, using recycled and recyclable materials in their manufacturing process.
Environmental consciousness goes both ways, so if that's something you're passionate about and is a message you want to share, do consider these same gifts!
