4 Corporate Gifts That Support Singapore Makers And Celebrate Our Heritage
While we tend to buy gifts during special occasions, it is important for us to show appreciation to the people whom we work closely with, including employees, customers and partners, throughout the year. Surprising them with a little gift goes a long way in creating a favourable impression and maintaining a good working relationship.
We often say ‘it’s the thought that counts’. Rather than getting a generic gift like chocolates, taking the time and effort to choose a special gift – one that is uniquely local and authentic – is much more meaningful.
Here are some corporate gifts by Singapore makers to impress your stakeholders while celebrating our unique heritage.
Good Enough For Dignitaries To The Istana
#1 I’mablecollective by SG Enable
I’mable collective brings local designers, marketers and brands together to help makers – who are persons with disabilities – create quality products for the market. Its first initiative started in 2018 as a partnership between SG Enable, Singapore Airlines (SIA) and Autism Resource Centre (ARC) to feature designs by artists with special needs on SIA’s in-flight catalogue. The collective has also been commissioned by the Istana to customise gifts for visiting dignitaries.
From practical items such as mugs and bags, to higher-end souvenirs like art pieces, you can choose from a wide range of uniquely designed items across different price range (Under $20, $50, $100 and Premium).
Started with humble beginnings in 1976, RISIS is known for its collection of sustainable jewellery, sculptures and lifestyle artifacts that carry different facets of our Singaporean culture. It was born out of a discovery by a young Singaporean scientist who discovered a way to encapsulate natural orchids in gold. The brand engages a circular process that recycles gold from rejected pieces to reduce wastages.
From accessories at under $100 to over $1000, you can consider gifting VIP clients and partners who appreciate the shiny things.
Besides the regular Natural Orchid and Asian Inspired collections, it also features seasonal collections such as Orchid of the Month and Limited Edition pieces.
Good For Reminiscing Local Flavours
#3 Kin’s Miniatures
Hungry? Kin’s Miniatures specialises in handcrafted miniature food figurines made from clay. From local delights like nonya kueh and durian, to Japanese food like sushi, what you eat is what you see. Every food figurine is one and only in the world, and carries a slice of our local heritage.
You can also opt for a custom-made gift, or learn how to make them yourselves by signing up for a workshop/class priced at $80 to over $400 per pax (depending on difficulty level).
#4 Jewels Rock Sugar
Jewels Rock Sugar Sticks is made by Singapore’s oldest sugar manufacturer with more than 70 years of heritage and expertise in producing the finest, purest rock sugar. Its retail brand JEWELS encourages consumers to explore the flavors, colours and benefits of rock sugar while pairing it with a cup of good old coffee or tea for a complete experience.
Since September 2016, Jewels Rock Sugar Sticks by Cheng has sold across Singapore and has established a name for itself. These naturally crystallized rock sugar sticks are perfect instagrammable gifts that bring a bite of nostalgia. You can check out its themed corporate gift sets such as Jewel Nonya Heritage, Singapore Past Time Special Edition, 1872 Clipper Tea Co. Set and Hook Coffee Set.
