Get your hands on festive gifts, learn about feel-good skincare, design your own whimsical accessories and more – all for a good cause.
Love it or hate it, the festive shopping season has begun. We’re in the ‘love it’ camp and the place that’s putting us in an even jollier mood is the i’mable Gift Market (held on Sat 23 Nov 2019). A gift shopping spree that gives back? We’re so in.
Stocking stuffers and joyous gifts
Support the i’mable Gift Market’s cause by shopping the range of artisanal gifts created by persons with disabilities – think clay necklaces and bracelets by the Cerebral Palsy Alliance Singapore (CPAS) or handcrafted marbled mugs by artists from the Down Syndrome Association (DSA). From the Movement for the Intellectually Disabled of Singapore (MINDS), coasters, fridge magnets and hama bead jewellery await a stocking to fill.
Foodies, pack your food in Earth-friendly beeswax wraps instead of plastic ones. Minimakers has a range of designs that’ll make your homemade bites look ultra cute. Wanna have something on the spot? Look to sumptuous pies from Metta Cafe or delicious cookies from MINDS. Going guilt-free? Boxgreen has packs of healthy snacks that you can have on the go.
Celeb goodies and hands-on fun
More shopping ahead: don’t miss the Mediacorp Celebrities Charity Boutique brimming with apparel, shoes and books that are looking for a new home. This is your chance to get your hands on pre-loved celeb goodies!
On the DIY agenda, flex your craft-making skills at SPD’s exclusive book-binding workshop or get festive by decorating Christmas ornaments at DSA’s marbling workshop. You can also create your own ‘It’ bag with Edible Garden City’s eco-friendly botanical print totes or statement resin jewellery with Dawn Kwan’s embedded pressed flowers technique. Kids too can channel their inner Picasso at Deaf Arts Craftsy’s craft clay painting jam or learn to embrace differences through Superhero Me Playlabs’ fun arts and crafts, and story-telling workshops.
