Unique Christmas gifts at expatriate bazaars

Published on Nov 15, 2012 7:00 PM

Need some original Christmas gift ideas? Check out Brazilian and Japanese handicrafts at bazaars on this and next weekend.

Expatriate housewives are selling quaint lifestyle goods and Christmas ornaments to raise funds for charity.

It is a longstanding tradition for the Women's Committee of The Japanese Association, Singapore, which co-organised its first Christmas bazaar with Singapore Red Cross in 1958. Its latest edition happens on Nov 24, offering homemade baked goods and traditional Japanese crafts.

Meanwhile, Brazilian expatriate women's group Helping Hands will hold a bazaar today and tomorrow at a function room at Cliveden At Grange. Another pop-up shopping event with a charity element is happening at House on Dempsey, next Monday and Tuesday.
