The most wonderful time of the year is near – Christmas time! But we’ve got to admit, it is also the time when you spend the most money on gifts!
We’ve rounded up 10 gifts that look and taste good, but is going to cost you less than $10 each (yay!).
1. Freeze Dried Chocolates
These chocolates from Gulliver come in a nice, petite black box that looks super premium! Using 100% real freeze dried fruits, coated in rich cacao powdered 72% dark chocolate, a bite of the chocolate gives off a hint of bitterness and sweetness from the fruit. They also contain no preservatives, artificial flavours and colouring. Available in 3 flavours at Candy Empire stores – Durian, Blueberry, and Strawberry at $7.50 per box
2. Daelmans Stroopwafels, Christmas Edition
Originated from the Netherlands, Stroopwafel literally means “syrup waffle” and is often consumed with a cup of hot beverage. Sandwiched between two waffles, is a rich caramel syrup. By placing the stroopwafel on top of a mug of hot beverage, the steam then rises and warms up (and melts) the caramel within. Imagine hot chocolate with stroopwafels… so much Christmas vibes! Priced at just $5.80 per box of 8 pieces at Candy Empire stores, this would make an affordable yet enjoyable Christmas gift for anyone with a sweet tooth. Available in original and chocolate waffle flavours.
