December has raced by and Christmas is sneaking up on us! If your stockings are still empty, here are some of our favourite fast finds:
Eat and drink
Everybody loves a treat, especially if it’s chocolate! For the best chocolate made in Indonesia, Monggo can’t be beat. For tea fans, TWG has made some beautiful seasonal sets that taste as good as they look. Looking for something a little harder, add some Christmas cheer at Red&White. The wine and liquour shop has tonnes of reasonably priced (well reasonably priced for Jakarta) that definitely bring a smile to any wine lover’s face.
Books and more
Aksara is like no other bookstore in town. They specialise in quantity but quality. Have fun browsing for knickknacks and cool titles such as Chop, Sizzle, Wow, an illustrated cookbook.
When looking for stocking stuffers, don’t overlook your high-street clothing favourites. H&M has a whole section online and in the stores dedicated to gift ideas, including some of their shiny baubles. Zara Home at Plaza Senayan is also filled with great house accessories.
A little something
The best stocking stuffers are fun and unexpected. Shop to your quirky heart’s content at Ace Hardware (if you can’t find it here, you can’t find it anywhere!) and Japanese gift shop, Scoop. If you’re looking for something a little more alive, go south to Alska to pick up a charming Vaxa succulent.
