One of the hardest thing to do is looking for gift ideas when you just run out of ideas. My brain is fried from overthinking at work and handling domestic stuff at home, I couldn’t think of a great gift to give my officemate to congratulate her achievement in her career. I went to the mall and was so overwhelmed with the various choices and none of it seems original or memorable. On top of it, my son’s birthday is coming soon by the end of the month. I need to buy birthday pouches to giveaway for his schoolmates.
Fortunately, in my recent trip to Marina Square Mall and dropping by Sophisca, I finally found inspirations.
Sophisca is a Taiwan Specialty Candy Brand that is available in Singapore at Marina Square Mall and Changi Airport Terminal 3. It was started in 1997 and became a favorite confectionary shop by many. It is dubbed as “A Place For Sweethearts” and you can tell why because they give their customers the perfect sweetness with their products & packaging.
If in doubt, just give sweets. What is not to like? My officemate loves sweets and beauty products so I have found the perfect gift for her.
A Sophisca Lipstick Giftbox! It is a chocolate looking like a real lipstick. My son doesn’t believe that it is really chocolate. I tried on for myself and I encourage him to eat one. He was initially too scared to try. Hahaha! When he did bit on it, he just took it happily from my hands. It is packaged beautifully in a hot pink and black hard box with a ribbon. It retails at $24.90 per set. It is available for a limited time only. Each pack features (at random) three flavours of Tipsy Chocolate, Hazelnut Latte, Hot Chili Lips, Blueberry Yogurt, Rose or Berries. It is such a cute creative gift and my officemate love it so much. She doesn’t want to eat it and instead keep showing it to her other friends and family.
I was also jubilant to find the Happy Birthday Wish Pouch ($10.90) for my son’s birthday bashes in school. Goodie bags are taken care of. Each pouch contains a mish-mash of rice/fruit chocolate and marshmallows. No worries and very fuss-free for mommies like me and my son approves.
Besides these as gift ideas, Sophisca also have the ever-popular ‘SMILE’ round gift box ($18.90) and the classic ‘PIANO’ black-and-white box ($18.90), all filled with the brand’s staples of fruity bons bons, chocolates, cookies and hard candies.
So in case, you ran out of gifting ideas, head over to Sophisca branches to inspire you.
