  • Amanda Lim says:

    The best gift to me would be my mother! For starters, she gave me life! Not to mention that she took good care of me from birth even till now! Therefore, If I’m picked, i would give the Penhaligon’s Minature Fragrance Collection for Ladies to my mom because she collects miniature perfume bottles and she would definitely love to have these babies to add to her collection.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  • Tan Mei-An says:

    How can i be a gift to someone?
    Well, every year, during Christmas, my family, relatives and friends would receive a present where “its the thought that counts”. I would prepare for each and everyone that is on my list, even to those whom i am not close to. And it can be handmade or bought. Even a smile, a hug or a donation is a gift. It’s a blessing to give! :)

    You are a gift to others! :)

  • Sochii says:

    My gift is a special friend. That person has brought me endless of smiles and comfort. Constantly looking forward to meet again because there will always be smile, laughters and fun. If I could spend every waking day like that, i would truly be blessed beyond believe cos that person is the greatest gift to me.

  • Syaf says:

    My best friend is a gift to me because we have known each other since we were 10. 12 years later our friendship is still going strong. She is God’s gift to me because she has always been there for me – through ups and downs in all parts of my life, she knows who I truly am and I don’t have to put on a facade in front of her. She is wonderful because she always knows when I’m feeling down and cheers me up. She knows what I like and is always sincere in everything. She is able to understand my feelings and accept me for who I am, wholeheartedly. Truly, she is such a blessing to me.

  • bong says:

    My 8 months old nephew is a special gift to me, in fact he is the ‘very special gift’ for my family. Other then being super adorable, he amazingly ‘repaired’ any spoiled blood/relationship in the family. With this little rascal, my family now has ‘family day’ every weekend. The past 8 months were so amazing to me with this little angel, his innocent yet mischievous smile gets very very healing when I had a bad day. Im so thankful for such special and precious gift this year!! ^^

  • Cheryn says:

    Every person that I know along the way is a gift to me! I love learning new stuff from people and it makes life so much more fun. Not to mention my close friends, they are the people who keep me encouraged and accompanied! :)

  • Adeqfarah says:

    My boyfriend always tells me how lucky he is to have me even if we live far away.He said I am the greatest gift he ever had.And its been more than 2 years now :)

  • Sharon says:

    Christmas has always been a spirit of appreciation for me, hence, I would like to express my gratitude to significant half who never fails to support me through my ups and downs. Even with my bad tempers and mad behaviour, he tries his best to give me his best, and that encourages me to be a better person not just for him, but all peoples around me.

  • Sharin Chia says:

    We are gifts from god, and so are we gifts to our parents

  • Carol lim Mei Mei says:

    My husband is my greatest gift to me becos he is such a devoted, involved and supportive husband to me and daddy to our two (soon to be three) young boys.

  • Yan says:

    We are all gifts to other people – tell me how you are a gift to someone or how someone is a gift to you!
    I married by husband in May last year. He’s the world’s greatest gift to me because he tolerated all my nonsense – my selfishness, my laziness, my constant search to look good with endless makeup and fashion shopping and all. He stands by me wherever I am.

  • Jean Lin says:

    I think my family and close friends are gifts to me as they love me unconditionally and will always be there for me in times of happiness and sadness and everything in between.

  • lee liet says:

    My boyfriend is a gift from god :D we met through a mutual friend during dinner, and i was 1 hour late on that day due to my sick pet. however, he was totally cool about it and waited for me though the friend had went off. since then, he has been supporting me when i was hospitalised for food poisoning, targeted by office politics and when i was simply upset. he is really sensitive, caring and observant. i love him so much <3

    I hope to get the "Benefit Let There Be Bright" or "Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream 2012 Limited Edition Skin Protectant" or "Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends Fragrant Body Spray, Liquid Body Cleanser and Hand & Body Lotion in Orange Flower & Lychee" or "Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends Fragrant Body Spray, Liquid Body Cleanser and Hand & Body Lotion in Vanilla & Cedarwood" or "Lancôme No. 13 Angled Shadow Brush" or "Philosophy Winter Escape Christmas Set" or "Yves Saint Laurent Beauté Forever Youth Liberator Serum"

  • Valerie Lee Shuhui says:

    Dear Makeup Stash!,

    I will love to win the Burberry Body Rose Gold Eau de Parfum.
    It has been a difficult year for me and I will love to win then Burberry Parfum to pamper myself for all the hard work that I had been going through and staying strong to overcome them.

    Looking forward to your reply.

    Merry Xmas!

    With lots of love,

  • Tan Chia Me, Grace says:

    As a daughter, wife and mom for my dad, husband and son, I think I’m a everyday-gift to them. Hehe.. yet, in this session, I just want to spend quality time with my family.
    Merry Christmas to you Mag and be bless always.

  • Jenine says:

    My children are the ultimate gift to me. They evoke in me emotions I never knew existed, they re-gift themselves to me when I least expect it and the joy they bring cannot be bought or found in any present available in the stores. What more could I ask for in a gift?

  • Veronica Lek says:

    my bf is a gift to me. He is always there for me and I am very grateful for him! Hoping to plan a special xmas with him this year!!

  • Yvonne Zheng says:

    ‘Friends are angels who lift you up with your wings have trouble remembering how to fly.’ I always remember this quote. I am always blessed to have friends around me, one in particular since secondary school days. She’s always around through my ups and downs, and never fails to be giving even in the weirdest of circumstances. I’ll never forget our late-night crying over muffled phones, or stoning over coffee sessions, or terrible cooking sessions during stayovers. That the Lord for such a wonder!

  • Ris says:

    I feel like all of my family members are a gift to me, because they’re always there for me when I need them.
    I also think that my friends are gifts to me, I always have the most fun with them, no matter what We’re doing. They don’t judge and give awesome advice when I need it. :)
    And hopefully, other people think I’m a gift to them as well. ^^

  • Ice says:

    I sincerely feel that my friend is the best gift to me because she’s always there for me when I need her to be without expecting much in return.

  • Nurul Huda says:

    My parents are my gifts. Without my parents, I will not be able to get through all the rough patches I had to face. I have 3 other siblings and sometimes we do feel like they love some of us more than the other but they always reassure us that they love us the same. Whenever one of my siblings or I were not able to make it for an event or had school thus unable to eat out, they will always pack some back for us, saying so-and-so isnt here. Family dont feel complete. They’ve drilled into my siblings and I that no matter what family comes first and at 21 years of age, I finally see why.

  • Zerika Gan says:

    My mum is the best gift to me.
    She’s always there for me when i needed someone to talk to. Be it about work or relationship, she will sit with me and hear me talk. When I’m not well, she will wake up much earlier than she usually will and make herbal drinks for me. I always believe that there’s a reason why we come to this world and that’s why I’m glad that she’s my mum. :) Gonna give it to her if I win :) Tks!

  • kay says:

    I believe I’m born into the world to spread love, partially because I’m born on Valentines’ Day, so I’m a gift to everybody I know and love. I strongly believe everybody can live better with love so I always try to take care of everyone in my special way =)

  • Diyana Nazurah says:

    My family is a gift to me because they are always there for me during fun and hard times. I’m blessed to have them!

    Cheers and Merry XMas!

  • My mom is such a gift to me! She is like my best friend, I get to share with her all my worries & we also hang out & do fun stuff (like going to JB just to shop for Inglot) tog! <3 her! :D

  • Fifi says:

    After graduation everyone went their separate ways, but I am glad for that new special someone to come into my life at the right time. He has been the best graduation present, and me to him. Without each other, we will probably be at lost on what to do in the next phrase of our lives. As everyone moves on, at least we have each other.

  • rubynancychua says:

    My bestie was my special gift to me! Although we have different personalities, I’m glad we found each other. We have always been there for each other through all these years. We quarrel often, but we would always compromise and try to think on the other party’s view and settle it calmly. I felt so terrible whenever we did, because I felt a part of me was missing. I really couldn’t have gone through these years without her. Right now, we’ve been so busy and haven’t met for quite a while, but we still get in touch through phone, and try to update each other’s lives. BFF<3

  • joanne lee says:

    My baby cousin was born last year on my birthday, 30 June! She is indeed a precious gift from god, seeing her growing up each day, learning to call me ‘jie jie’ and mumbling out simple terms like ‘byebye, cat, dog etc’ and waving byebye to me whenever she goes out definitely warm my heart. I hope to win ‘Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends Fragrant Body Spray, Liquid Body Cleanser and Hand & Body Lotion in Vanilla & Cedarwood ‘ for my aunt as she is always busy taking care of my baby cousin and hardly have the time to pamper herself and what’s more her birthday is on 14 Jan!

    I hope I will get chosen and give her this gift as a ideal birthday present to pamper herself :)

    Hope all the other participants get what they wished for <3

    Thank you for the awesome giveaway :)

  • Slj Slk says:

    My family is a gift to me, always caring and looking out for each other.

  • Germaine says:

    My friends and family are the most precious gifts to me. You know they’ll be there for you every time you need them, and they will always be there to support every decision you make, or in some cases to knock some sense into you when they know you’ll regret your decision :)

  • katherine lee says:

  • Atin says:

    After my dad pass away, all his brothers and sisters look up to me because I look a lot like him. Whenever they see me they will stare and start to smile as if they are looking at their brother. At the very least I’m able to be there for them to let out how much they miss their brother (:

  • Jasmine says:

    my family and friends are gifts to me 24/7. there are there whenever I needed some love or when I need some people to share my joy with. (:

  • Darlene says:

    Christmas is a time where I love and look forward to. It’s the day of two very special people in my life, one is my dad’s birthday and the other is the Lord Jesus Christ. They had been my guidance and help in my life and I am grateful for them.
    My dad has given me alot since young and I hope I can return back to him what I can now.
    I hope you will have a wonderful Christmas too!
    Thanks for the giveaway and I would like to win the Benefit Let There Be Bright or blush Orgasm.

  • Nithya says:

    Hi, my greatest gift in life would be my granny. My mom’s a career woman and so my granny has been taking care if me and my 2 younger sisters since we were born. My granny has a heart made of pure gold as she is always so giving, compassionate and has never said one negative thing about anyone no matter how terrible that person could have been to her. I have learnt to be a good human being from this angel bestowed upon my life. I’m very grateful to have a granny like mine as thank god every day for having her. Now my granny I’d extremely ill due to her old age and I am lucky to be able to now take care of her as much as I can although it will never be enough. Thank you for having such a meaningful giveaway! God bless!

  • Xris Ng says:

    Nike is a gift to me, Nike is my 9 years old dog, he kisses me more than my hubby does, and is always following me whenever I go.
    He is always there to share my happiness as well as sadness. In his eyes, I’m the most important person to him!!

  • lydia says:

    my sister is a gift to me because there’s no one else who can understand me better

  • Quinn Lim says:

    My husband is the best gift God has gifted me.
    He has always been very endearing. These past 9 months when I have been pregnant was the period I really appreciate this gift God bestowed on me. He has been taking care of me, from bringing me water, massaging my tummy and legs every night to sending me to and for work which is out of his way. He never complains that I am a hassle no matter how tired he is. For all that he is, I am grateful and appreciative of what I have. He is the greatest gift I have.

  • Ruiting says:

    Everyone is a gift to me, for everything that had and will happen is something that I could learn from. I am grateful to have my family, it is such a gift that I will always have support from these sweethearts. I am thankful for having my friends, they give me perspectives of life that I didn’t manage to look at. Thank you for all the ups and downs in life, because it builds me stronger and stronger. :)

    RT-ing whenever I see tweets/shares of this post too. Thank you so much for organizing this big giveaway, must be a lot of effort to get all the sponsors and keeping things clear. :)

  • Charlie Cheah says:

    Having my family living healthily and happily is definitely a gift for me. They are always there for me. Even though we don’t contact as frequently as other families, but our hearts are connected all the time. One thing I know for sure is that they will never leave me no matter what happens. It’s such a bless to have come to the family that I’m having now and I believe they think the same way as I do. We are inseparable.

  • Rita Cao says:

    I think of many friends and my family when it comes to a gift of my life. But if you want me to specify someone, I’d say it’s my father. I can always feel his love for me and of course I love he so so so much that I dream of having a boyfriend who has a personality just like him,haha. He has done too much to support me and my mother. All these years, he has been working for us regardless of tiredness. He has given me so much. I will be working hard to earn him a happy and enjoyable life!

  • Seok Lynn (imseoklynn) says:

    My whole family is a gift to me! They are always there for me when I need help. They shower me with love and care and always stand by me. There’s no better people in the world that understand me!

  • Sharon Lim says:

    I am blessed with more than one gift. My gifts are my ever loving and supporting parents who are always there for me since birth till now, my dearest husband who is understanding and loving; and my sibling who is always ready to render support when I am down.
    I wish that in the coming Year 2013 that they are blessed with good health, happiness and prosperity.

    If chosen, I hope to win the Kiehl’s Aromatic Blends Fragrant Body Spray, Liquid Body Cleanser and Hand & Body Lotion in Orange Flower & Lychee. Thank you.

  • phyllis says:

    My very close friend but not best friend is my biggest gift to me during these years.We don’t meet up very often nor text each other everyday.But whenever we meet up,there are so many things to tell her.I am quite a private person but i find myself telling her all the stupidest things i done and my enormous insecurities.I am very blessed to have someone like her.

  • Tingfang says:

    My clique of close friends are the best gifts I’ll ever have. We share our highs and lows, trade stories and experiences with each other, make fun of each other, moan and groan together, and our love for makeup glues us even more stickily!

  • Louise Lee says:


    Thanks for the giveaway.

    I am a gift to my mother, birthday gift in fact! I was born a few weeks early so that I would have the same birthday as her. This makes our birthdays extra special that we always have a special someone to celebrate the day together. <3

  • Sophia Ang says:

    My mum is a gift to me because I wouldn’t be here without her. She has gone through a lot of hardship to singlehandedly raise my sis and me. She taught me to put others before self. If I win, I’ll definitely give her the prize. I love you, mum!

  • Jessica says:

    my parents are the best gift I have and will ever receive! Their unconditional love for me and my sister, never asking for anything in return is the most precious gift ever. Their gift of love, of warmth, of care, of protection is something I am thankful and blessed with each and every day.

  • carr lo says:

    My mom & brother are the best gift to me. They are always there for me during my ups and down. Always so accommodating and putting up with all my shortcomings, mood swings & always providing support to all my decisions. Really glad to be part of the family and will LOVE them always!!

  • xue qi says:

    Personally the biggest gift in my life, apart from my family is my friend pei shan. she’s literally the nicest more sincere person on earth and everyday i am so thankful she is my friend. i would love to be her best friend but i know i can’t, so i’m just so thankful she’s there for me whenever i need her. the best thing i ever heard her say was “you’re one of my favourite people ever”
    she’s definitely the best gift ever :)
