The phenomenal array of fab brands might leave you spoilt for choice, so we’re giving you the lowdown on this much-anticipated fair, happening 17 to 19 November 2023.

Holiday gifts they’ll love
Tackling your gift list already? For the homebody, Mira’s home fragrance and wellness products are sure to spark joy; as would Slow Rituals’ shower salt exploratory ritual kit, comprising three shower salt scents that are perfect for a dose of at-home R&R; and Eden Living’s collection of soothing lighting and home decor pieces that promote restful living.
Other standouts include the tipple tasting sets and accessories from Ethed Collective that whisky connoisseurs would love; Anaya’s new anti-mould leather care kit that’s ideal for practical giftees; and Decibelist’s art frame speakers that are wall-mountable for any homeowners looking to create a statement gallery wall.
And we have gifting solutions for that friend who has everything: bag sleek coffee brewing equipment from a new-to-Boutiques brand, Fellow, that will upgrade their morning routine and look good on any counter. Or, pick up Fossa Chocolate’s Christmas Town Gift Set with festive chocolate flavours – ‘cos who can say no to seasonal sweet treats?
This way for retail therapy
Fans of elevated basics will love the lineup at Good Addition. This new homegrown label sees fashion-lifestyle influencer Andrea Chong bringing everyday essentials to life together with Joan Chang, co-founder of boutique hotel brand Lloyd’s Inn. Snag its launches alongside timeless utilitarian staples from Laundry Studio to create the perfect capsule wardrobe. The latter is a well-loved minimalist clothing brand promising handmade garments made in small batches for top-tier quality. Psst: don’t miss it if you’re on the hunt for practical staples with functional pockets.
If accessories and prints don’t intimidate you, Beam Bold will be right up your street. This size-inclusive brand manages to capture all the vibrancy of tropical living with its collections. We’d throw on any of its dresses for an instant tropical vibe – summer vacay not strictly necessary. For a dash of sparkle with a more subtle pop of colour, Studs+Stones would have our vote. Its statement earrings include interchangeable pearls and brightly-hued gemstones that’ll rake in all the compliments.
Gents aren’t left out either. Shop DCK Boardshorts for stylish additions to your warm weather rotation – expect a selection of prints and solid colours to suit your every fancy. For an update to your accessories stash, peep homegrown label, Hat of Cain’s array of panama hats that are made with organic, biodegradable toquilla straw.
Palate pleasers to bring home
Foodies, make a beeline to the F&B section for a number of new brands debuting at Boutique Fairs Singapore. We’ve got our eye on Jungle Kitchen for its ready-to-eat and ready-to-cook vegan fare; Meraki Butters for its compound butters in flavours like signature kombu and salted egg curry leaf; as well as Kalkandu for small-batch South Indian sweets and snacks such as its addictive butter murukku.
