All I want for Christmas...
by Victoria Barker

For her

Sweet snaps: Talk about unique. This mini-camera (right) is built to look suspiciously like a tantalising bar of chocolate. The resulting photos look dreamy and lo-fi, and she will surely be smitten by just how cute the gadget is.

Also available are blinged-up gold Lomos and USB-size cameras (not pictured).

Get it: $60 at Peek!, 36 Armenian Street, 01-04.

Yummy honey: The Body Shop's Candied Ginger Hexagon Gift Box (above) - this year's new sweet and spicy fragrance replaces last year's Jolly Orange - includes body butter, a scrub, and a bath and shower gel that will leave her smelling good enough to eat.

Get it: $39.90 from all Body Shop outlets, including Paragon (B1-14/15) and Plaza Singapura (01-02).

Precious luxury: Designed by iconic artist-jeweller Carl Faberge, these exuberant miniature egg charms (above), which were made exclusively in Russia, will make an excellent, not to mention elegant, addition to her collection. Don't forget a matching necklace, too.

Get it: From $398 at Lee Hwa Diamond Promenade (ION Orchard) and from selected Lee Hwa Jewellery boutiques.

For him

Snap-happy: Available in both black and silver, the PowerShot S100 (right), Canon's latest semi-pro camera, is extremely sleek, so your man doesn't have to lug a sizeable gadget around just to get quality snaps.

It also has a 5x zoom range and full high-definition-video capabilities.

Get it: $699 at authorised Canon retailers.

Suave style: G2000 launched its end- of-season sale today, so there are great deals (up to 50 per cent off selected items) to be had. An assortment of polo tees (above), for instance, is going for just $23 each (U.P. $43).

G2000's red plaid tie is ideal for savvy business-types - it is stylish yet professional.

Get it: $29 (U.P. $53) from G2000 outlets, including VivoCity (02-239) and nex (01-66/67).

Tech sounds: Taiwanese handset-maker HTC recently joined forces with headphone and speaker brand Beats by Dr Dre - which means that the Sensation XE with Beats Audio (above), available in a very Christmassy classic white, guarantees killer sound quality for the guy who loves music on the go. The urBeats in-ear earphones it comes with have a remote control, too.

Get it: At a suggested retail price of $868 at all telcos and authorised HTC resellers.
