Buro's #UltimateHolidayBox: We uncover all the treats in our festive gift box
Making spirits bright
Tis' the season to be jolly when the twinkling lights are up, pine trees are adorned, and mulled wine is made. To celebrate this time of giving, we've put together a special box of treats for our #FriendsofBuro, collaborators, and supporters for sticking with us in 2017.
From stylish jewellery to cult beauty products and gourmet chocolate, this year's Christmas box is filled with the best indulgences and delightful stocking stuffers for merry hearts. Below, we reveal each and every item in this unique trove.
Here's our attempt at bringing a spa right into your home. Banyan Tree's reformulated line of products are not only très chic, but are sustainably sourced and composed of 95% natural ingredients. Your holiday pampering starts with this curated selection — a beautiful scented candle, glass stones, and experiential essential oils in a fabric wrap. Bliss mode: On.
All that partying and merrymaking taking a toll on your skin? Kiehl's Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask is an instant revitaliser after a late night, packed with hand-picked calendula flower petals and cooling aloe vera. Apply to clean skin for five minutes, rinse with warm water, and massage gently in a circular motion. Voilà!
Created for all skin types, this lightweight moisturiser replenishes skin hydration by drawing and absorbing moisture from the air, and is great even for the coldest of climates. Heading to Niseko for a ski trip this month? This baby will be your lifesaver.
Trust Urban Decay's cult-favourite products to get you ready for a big night out. Glide on their Vice Lipstick, which showcases a creamy texture and rich colour payout — for a sophisticated pucker that will last your evening out about town.
Mist on this weightless spray to keep your makeup going for up to 16 hours. What's cool? It's developed with a technology that lowers the temperature of your makeup to keep it all in place despite our island's high humidity levels.
There's nothing worse than creased eyeshadow while clinking champagne glasses at your office Christmas party — especially in broad daylight. This nifty primer potion packs in a 24-hour crease-free shadow and a space-age polymer technology that will fill in any imperfections on the skin's surface.
It's holiday season and we're all for racking up those frequent flyer points in style — this leather passport holder, alongside your sleek holdall and striking aviator shades, will do just that.
Sweet yet sensual, this sparkling scent from Jimmy Choo combines a symphony of floral, fresh, and musky notes. Think hibiscus flowers, bergamot, peony, and cedarwood. Each scent is housed in a gorgeous pink bottle — a pretty new addition to your dressing table in time for the festive season.
Gentlemen, this is your new go-to scent for mistletoe luck. With an intoxicating vetiver and patchouli heart, other notes include mandarin, bergamot, and cedrat essence, with a drydown of musk and boss. Celebrating pure masculinity and innate confidence, splash this on and watch heads turn.
Italian gourmet chocolate manufacturer Venchi is bound to add cheer to every Christmas party. Their chocolate cigars are made and wrapped by hand, and are divine creations that will leave your taste buds wanting more. If there's any time to put that diet on hold, it's right now.
Nobody does wellness blends and classic green and black teas better than Kusmi Tea. With 150 years of developing some of the world's best concoctions, this Parisian brand with Russian roots only employs the freshest ingredients from tea-producing countries such as Sri Lanka and China — tea and a bickie, anyone?
Rémy Martin's VSOP embodies the brilliant harmony of powerful and elegant aromas, with dominant notes of vanilla, followed by ripe apricot, baked apple, and a light floral note. Enjoy it neat, on the rocks, or in a cocktail with your best crew. We can't think of a better way to usher in the New Year.
There's nothing more satisfying than breaking open a good bottle of wine to kickstart the year-end festivities. The Marques de Casa Concha Carmenere 2015, from the Peumo Vineyard in Chile, features intense notes of ripe plums, blackcurrant, and dark chocolate for a pronounced finish.
In today's digital age, there's nothing more precious than handwritten notes and letters. Bring back the good old days of snail mail with Pineider's handsome stationery set — your recipient will definitely appreciate your thoughtful gesture.
Singapore-based fine jewellery designer State Property navigates the cusp between art and design with its contemporary pieces. Shine bright at your Christmas party with these versatile wrist accessories — its geometric shapes will glam up any outfit.
Cheers to a full head of hair in the New Year — Freia Hair Solutions' scalp care shampoo removes excess oil and impurities, as well as restores optimal scalp pH for healthy hair growth. Expect your hair to be minty clean and soft after.
Thick, bouncy tresses are the perfect finishing touch to any outfit. Freia Hair Solutions' scalp care and volumizing shampoo is formulated with salicylic acid to exfoliate scalp skin, and caffeine to stimulate hair growth. Bonus? Packed with hair conditioning agents, you won't need a separate conditioner afterwards.
