  • Jacelyn Om says:

    My parents are the greatest gift in my life. Despite my rebellious and hot-tempered nature when i was young, they always give in and bear with me. As i slowly learn to appreciate all that my parents have done for me, i also realised how fast they are aging, and so i cherish them even more. So blessed to their daughter <3

  • Tan Rui ting says:

    I help bring laughter to peoPle around me, and I also am a great listener too! I might not be the best at consoling people, but listening to other people speak their minds is very therapeutic for them too! And I am a very forgiving person! That’s a gift too! When I’m not leading others, I am a great team worker. I help make work easier for the leaders :)

    Thanks Mag!

  • Andrea says:

    Someone who I feel is a gift to me is definitely my mother. She has loved and cared for me for, well, every second of my life since I was born, even though there have been times that I have made it hard to do so. Now that I am growing up and maturing into a young lady, I realise that and I am filled with gratitude that words cannot express. I love my mother more than anything and would do anything for her. She is the greatest gift I could ever receive :).

    Merry Christmas and thanks for the giveaway!

  • Rachel Free says:

    Thank you for distributing such fab prizes! My comments are as follows:

    Who’s a gift to me: My little daughter, Grace. She’s changing my life every day, since the day she was born 3 years ago. She made me a better woman, mother and wife. You get to discover that you are actually a very self-centered person until you have to care for a little being instead. I’m very motivated in my work and living now because of her.

    I’m a gift to: My daughter as well! I try to be the best mother possible, giving her education, outdoor fun and gifts and also the right amount of discipline. I hope she learns to appreciate my love for her she grows up.

  • Jan S says:

    My hubby is the best gift to me. He is truly my soul mate and someone whom I can pour my heart out to! I am so thankful for him <3

  • Yosefina says:

    If u ask WHO is the gift for me? I confidently say that EVERYONE is a gift for me. Remember God creates everyone as a blessing for others, thus I perceive in my mind that strangers are God creating that might shape us into something. In example, I meet broomers in pedestrian Orchard, I perceive that they are God’s gift for me in order to clean the road and make the ppl comfy to walk there. Or i meet a drunker who lays down the street at dawn. I give thanks to God that those drunkers were laying down already, not still walking, so I no need to scare of them. My motto is SEE EVERY SINGLE EVENT OR PERSON AS POSITIVE THINGS. :)

  • Ye Xiaoxuan says:

    Me and my best friend are both pisceans , even though we weren’t born on the same day , we were born on the same week! And in the same hospital too. I got to know her in primary school and even after that when we went to different schools, we still took the time out to have lunch and so (: Pisces and Pisces as I heard are the most compatible pairing , and i think so too! I think she is the greatest gift to me and I am also a gift to her.

    Thank you! ^^

  • wickermoss 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 am more of the giver type; so when I receive gifts, big or small I make sure to give all the Glory back to God. I learnt one thing: never expect anything in return as well as there were times that God always surprise me for all those! and I smile to my heart’s content knowing that I have made such a positive impact to a person, in whatever form it is I still made it possible.

    Thanks for being generous as always MAG! HAppy Holidays!


  • Chin Ting says:

    the greatest gift I have is a girlfriend who sticks through thick and thin and is there for me in the bad days and the good days and proves her loyalty again and again by her many acts of service! She’s been a true blessing and a real sweetheart and shows me what a true friend is really like!

  • The best gift I gave myself at 34 is to open a fresh page in my life. I have the best relationship with my current husband after a terrible failed marriage. He opened new doors for me and I never look back.

  • Eunice Chua says:

    My boyfriend is a wonderful gift for me. Because of him, I get to know the Lord Jesus. And because of that, my family is in a better state than before. I really thank him for appearing in my life not any later.

  • Alexial says:

    Thanks for the giveaway Mag!

    Everyone in my life is a gift, because they bring with them lessons be they good or bad.

  • Cheryl says:

    My 3yo nephew, Sean is a gift to me. His unadulterated joy and innocence brings a smile to me, no matter how bad a day I am having.

  • Cer Wong says:

    Besides my parents and boyfriend who are very special to me in their own way, I would like to talk about my best friend (BFF) J. Not only is she a gift to me and her family, but even at her workplace! Her boss often praises her as “a present that fell from the sky” because she works very hard, is good in her job and gets along well with everyone. This shows how important she is to everyone. She is not only kind, generous, easygoing but also good tempered and caring. Even when I was studying overseas, she would often whatsapp me to ask me to drink more water and sleep early as I often fell sick. My Christmas wish for her this year is that a kind, nice and caring guy will come into her life soon! She deserves a nice gift herself :) I love you J and Merry X’mas! I really appreciate all that you have done for me and you are truly a god-send to everyone on earth.

  • Epifania Ibit Gumban says:

    My bestfriend cha is the wonderful gift to me. Shes always their in my sorrow, in my problem and in my happiness no matter what happens. Her words, love and presence told me that I would never ever be alone in this world. I’m so blessed to be her friend.

  • Peiying says:

    Everyone around me is a gift. Life would not have been that great without your friends and family! (= Merry X’mas, wish to share the gift with my gifts(:

  • mandy says:

    Hello Mag,

    I like how you liken people as gifts to others, which made me think of all the awesome people in my life. My greatest gift would be to have loving parents who treat me like I am their greatest gift too. Merry Christmas Mag!

  • Shirley says:

    My fiancé is a gift to me! He always stand by me no matter what I do. He is always there to help me out. His cheeky nature never fails to bring a smile to my face. Despite my furious temper and occasionally unreasonable requests he is always there for me.

  • teo hock koon says:

    My wife is a gift to me as she is not only a great wife but she is also an awesome mother to my son. I am forever thankful of having her in my life.

  • Enon Poh says:

    I am a gift to my hubby as he found me as his soul mate.

  • luah moi kee says:

    My kids are the best gifts god has given me. They mean the world to me; their laughters are my daily strength.

  • SH says:

    The greatest gift to me is to have a baby at home. Life has been pretty rough for me for the past few years with the stress at work. The addition of a baby to the family has brought bundles of joys and laughter- it is like having a mini comedian at home. When I’m feeling low, squeezing his cute cheeks is enough to make anything right again. I began to see joy in simple things, beyond work and accomplishments. I took time off my work for my family and friends and of course relax and enrich myself. As I slowly understood how it felt to be a parent, I began to appreciate my mom and dad more, esp the things they have done for me. I finally began to understand the feelings of my parents. Now my family is definitely closer together, we’re spending more quality time with each and it definitely feel more like home again.

    Baby is definitely the greatest and most precious gift this year. For this coming Christmas and many to come, I’m gonna make my family members feel more appreciated. Of course I wish that baby would see me as a gift in his life too!

  • Michelle says:

    My dog is a gift to me. For 10 years, she put a smile on my face every day without fail. Even though she don’t speak, her actions is filled with love and affectio.

    Thanks for the giveaway! :)

  • Alicia Tan says:

    Hello there! :)

    I certainly agree that we are all gifts to other people and it is sad that sometimes, people don’t see the value in themselves. I was once like this too but am glad that I now see the value in myself. I am a gift to my family because I play the roles of a daughter and a sister and I am also “Miss Personal Assistant” & “The Maid”. I would help my mother book for a course online, help my dad search for jobs and help my sis research on the best hair rebonding deal. I would be the one washing clothes at odd hours, cleaning windows before CNY, sweeping the floor while everyone are asleep. Sometimes I feel so tired being depended on almost everything yet it is a blessing to be of service to my loved ones. And of course, my loved ones are gifts to me too! :)
    Have a merry christmas!

  • Mabel says:

    The 2 great gifts in my life are my hubs and my dog. The hubs is always the sensible one that kept me on the right track since my JC days. I would never be where I am today without his constant support and love. My dog Juno never fails to shower me with love despite me neglecting her most of the time due to work. This X’mas is a time to remember and cherish them both!
    Thanks for the wonderful giveaway Mag!! God bless!

  • natassja says:

    My parents are the best gift to me. With they continuous support and love and also for believing in everything that I do. Because of them, i have confidence in everything i do and i do it to make the proud. I really treasure them so much because they make staying home my most fav thing to do ever. The house is always fill with laughter and chatter all day long. I love them to death!

  • Lim Ling says:

    My grandma is God greatest gift for me, It’s a wonder how a tiny woman can impart so much to her grand-daughter in 20 years, Because grandma passed away on my birthday , my birthday holds so much more meaning and even then, she taught me a lesson on strength. For the first time my father was allowed to be weak while he mourned for his mother and ,I hope the least i managed to do was to be strong for the rest if the family. ^^

  • Kiks says:

    The greatest gift that’s given to me is the baby i’m expecting now. Eversince i got to know i’m pregnant, i got very lucky on many occasions! Hopefully my baby will make me lucky enough to win this! :)

  • cheryl says:

    my 7 month old niece would be the best gift i’ve ‘received’ this year! she’s brought so much joy and happiness to my family, and have caused all our family tensions to disappear (:

    thanks for holding this awesome giveaway! it must be a lot of work to coordinate and collate everything! *hug*

  • Linda Mok says:


    This year, my greatest blessing & most wonderful gift is my newborn baby boy!! It’s amazing how this little person who can’t talk, walk, nor do anything much on his own has me irrevocably wrapped around his tiny fingers! He has given new meaning to every single day of my life… and when he breaks out that rare smile (after hours even days of crying!!) it’s simply magical!

    Thank you for hosting this fantastic giveaway! I’m sure it’ll make some ladies’ Christmas even more special!! I know I’d love some pampering myself!!

  • Annsley says:

    My baby sister is a gift to me because despite our huge age gap and our sibling fights, she is my best friend, my companion and my favourite huggee. Without her, I don’t think I would know as much joy and happiness in my life.

  • dee says:

    When I was young, I always believe that to get the best gifts in life, you got to earn all that cash which can give you all you need. As I grow older and enter the working world, I realize the best gifts in life is more than that bag or that car. The best gifts in life are the smile on my family’s faces, the concern they have shown when I have a bad day at work and the love which they unconditionally give me. The best gifts in my life are those which I have been missing out for a good 20 years of my life and I’m glad now I realize what they truly are.

  • Janice Lee says:

    My best friend who always there for me even though I had rough time months ago. Glad to meet this person in my life.

  • Anya Adi says:

    My daughter is a gift for us and our big family. We live together with my parents, grandmother and my lil brother. Before she was born, the house would be empty with everyone is going about with their own business, we rarely sit and eat meals together or even interact much with each other. but things change drastically with my daughter’s presence in this house, my grandma looks more alive and my parents adore her and will always make time for our family to get together, my kid brother also change. The atmosphere is more alive and cheery instead of a big empty space and that’s why she’s the greatest gift for us

  • Krystal says:

    My mum is the best gift I have! She guides me along the way, sharing her experiences and worries with me. Well, she never fails to buy something (beauty-related) for me whenever she’s popping by the counters:) Other than that, she always showers much concern for me. In other words, can I say that my mum a bff? XD

  • Nie Yile says:

    We are a gift to everyone that we showed kindness to, and likewise people who showed kindness to us are gifts to us too! :) so we should all remember to be kind.

    Anyway this is such a fabulous giveaway!!! :) THUMBS UP makeupstash! :)

  • shufen says:

    the gift in my life gotta be my parents. they give without expecting returns. they worked hard to provide me with education so that I will land on a good job with decent salary. they give me a shelter so that I will have a home to go back to. without them, I will not be who I am today. in this festive season, I wish for their health and happiness.

  • My husband and family is the greatest gift for me. I am so grateful that I have such a loving family that accepts me no matter what. My husband is very understanding and supportive in whatever I do. He knows how to treat & respect me very well :) So grateful of him <3

  • Charlene J. Lee says:

    The best gift that I have got from God is life experiences and the people they bring with them. I think the happenings in my life have made me stronger, emotionally, and have helped me find lasting friendships and relationships. (:

  • Hui Yun says:

    I’m more a gifter than a receiver to my friends and family. While its easy to give gifts to my friends, family, on the other hand, is alot tricker but I try :) I’d like to believe I’m a gift to those whom I know, because I think of them as gifts too.

  • Bernice Sum Pei Yi says:

    Being the eldest grand-child in the family, I am a precious gift to my grandparents. 30 years later, my darling daughter is not only a priceless gift to me. Its also a priceless gift to my grandparents; Their first great-grandchild!

  • Mi Zi says:

    My cousin is a gift for me. Like she always say to be able to give is a blessing, riches cannot buy happiness in her heart.

  • Nicol Chan says:

    My friends and family are gifts to me because their support in whatever I do has allowed me to have the freedom to dream big and achieve whatever I set my heart out to do :’)

  • Stephanie Brielle says:

    I think having a family is a blessing for me. Tho it may not be complete but each and every single individual in my household is a gift to me. We may quarrel and fight over small little things at times, but no matter what happens, we’ll still be together at the end of the day. These are the people who never actually leave after a mess.

    Well of course there’s God! He is the greatest gift of all. :)

  • Stephanie Yong says:

    My friends are the best gift to me. They are there to support me and care for me when I’m down. Really glad to have them around me. We will be spending Christmas together in Hong Kong this year and it will definitely be a memorable one!

  • Jacelyn says:

    My family is a gift to me.
    My dad, who wakes up every morning without fail to send me off to school and now work.
    My mum, who never failed to give me advices and comforts me whenever I need someone to talk to.
    My brother, who always bickers with me but I know he cares for me.

    Thanks Mag :)

  • yt says:

    My grandmother is a gift to me. I don’t know what I would be or how I would be without her. She raised me up, she still makes me milo every morning before i go to school (and I’m in university now) simply because she knows I’ll be too lazy to do it myself and she doesn’t want me to head out with a completely empty stomach.

    I love her so much :)

    Would love to win the NARS Orgasm Blush or Benefits Sexy Little Stowaways :)

    Thanks Mag ! Merry Christmas and Thank you for this lovely giveaway :)

  • yiying says:
