    My mom is the best gift in my life. She is a wonderful mom take care of our need caring and doting us. No matter what happen she always stay strong. She is the best I am so glad that I have her by my side.

  • Jess Koh says:

    My mother is a greatest gift to me. She is a very positive and cheerful person; and always there for us whenever we need her. Even though she is busy, she will make sure I will have warm and yummy meals when I visit her. The reason is very simple – love. My mother’s love had carved in my heart. She is also my super-mummy and my role model and I am constantly learning from her to be a super-mummy. I want to thank her for all her patience, love and forgiveness. Hope I can win a prize to thank her for the unlimited love to me.

  • Kathlyn says:

    Being my mother’s child is how she is the greatest gift of all as she has taught me precious life lessons and values.


  • Patricia says:

    the most wonderful gift I’ve had is my parents as they brought me into this lovely place so that I can get to know alot of great pals and friends and enjoy life to the fullest!

  • Thank you Mag for this awesome giveaway! :)

    A co-worker turned friend has truly been a gift to me. We’ve been friends for 9 years now, worked together for only 3. Not only has she been a mentor to me, but as a friend she has also taught me humility, an appreciation for diversity and most importantly that, there’s always value in all relationships because we all have something to learn from one another. We may not like/love everyone around us, but respect and inclusion is something we should extend to one and all. I’ve learnt we are all different, but that’s what makes each of us special. I think these are really essential lessons that impact our everyday lives – be it at home, in the work place, with friends or even with complete strangers. Beauty is only skin deep, but true beauty, from the heart is always that much more amazing.

  • Boon Leong says:

    the greatest gift I’ve got is my hubby as he loves me very much and gave me a 2 wonderful children who has brought alot of funfilled laughters into our lives.

  • Aileen says:

    the best gift I’ve had in my life is my wonderful boy that god has gladly given me to have a complete family in my life as this lovely boy is such a loveable gift and he’s a real mummy’s boy!

  • Fatin rossida says:

    My infants and nursery students are my gifts. They light up my life like no other. The way they smile, cooed and cuddle.. When im having a bad day, they never fail to cheer me up with their silly acts. They are the reason why i always try my hardest at everything and always give my best. They give me meaning to my life and they are every reason why i still smile despite all the negativity that is happening. They are my gifts which $$ cant buy and i thabk god for bringing them into my life. Just like they are my gifts, i hope im theirs as well. :)

  • Yvaine Yar says:

    I may bring trouble. But at the same time, I bring joy and laughter to people around me ;)

  • Az Lynn says:

    My husband is the greatest gift to me from God. I’m thankful for everyday that i have him by my side. For the angel who saved me from the misery that I was in and for seeing and bringing out the very best in me and for makin me his northern star. Soul mates are rare gifts for the lucky few :))

  • Kimberly Leow says:

    My greatest gift is to live, even though that might sound horribly cheesy. I’m just thankful for everything in my life. I have a nice family, friends I trust, a good school to go to, and nice things I own (which would be nicer if I won this giveaway ;) ) thank you so much for this giveaway! It’s amazing. Merry Christmas!

    xoxo, Kimberly

  • Ame says:

    My dad is my gift. Throughout all my years of rebellion he did not judge me for my behaviour, nor give up during my difficult times. He is open minded, lends a ear, and even hangs out with my friends just so he can get to know me better. Thanks Dad, hope I didn’t let you down, and wishing us many more happy years of friendship to come!

  • Lynn Ho says:

    My greatest gift to me would be my mother and my husband to be! =)
    They have been my greatest pillar of strength, and whenever I’m feeling down and depressed, I know I have somewhere to lean back on. Really felt very blessed and love them for all their love, support and advise that has been given to me. Without them, there would be me here! =)

  • Azleen says:

    Honestly, everyone in my life is a gift to me. They’re really blessings. But the greatest gift is my mum, one of the hardest workers and the most amazing woman i know. :) And she still takes time to care about me every single day. :) She accepts me for everything I am, whether good or bad. Another gift to me, is my boyfriend who is amazingly selfless and so so genuine. :) I love them both to bits, and am thankful everyday to have them in my life. :)

  • Peixun says:

    My parents are the best gift ever possible! They are supportive of all my choices, and always there for me in my troubles.

  • Audrey Yuen-Gan says:

    My children are the best gifts God has gievn me. They taught me to love and laugh and to put into action unconditional love. To want to be a better person, to be less self-centered.

  • Edith says:

    My greatest gift would be my colleagues who have been ever so supportive and nice. It is difficult to find a work environment where your boss and colleagues are understanding and sincere in making friends and I am so glad I found them. Christmas is truly a season to give and receive so thank you so much for the giveaway!

  • Cheryl says:

    My mother is a gift to me and to the rest of my family. There are just no words to describe how much she has done for us.

  • cp says:

    My mum is my greatest gift. without her, i’d not be here. She’s the one that takes care of our meals, waking up early to make breakfast, boil water, wash the laundries etc. thank you mummy!

  • Adeline says:


    My fiance is the greatest gift to me. When I did something very very wrong, he stood by me without question and helped me solve my problems without any grumbles or complaints. Spending quality time with him makes me a very happy girl =) So blessed and lucky to have met him.

  • Sharon says:

    My lovely kid sister is a gift to me (: Although younger than I am, she’s always looking out for me and unknowingly taking care of me whenever I’m down and out. With her keen interest in make up and skin care products, she has saved me from many make up disasters with all her random tips and advices! She has been in more ways than one been a blessing to me (plus she’s the one who introduced me to makeupstash!), and I’m so glad she’s a gift I couldn’t have chosen, but has been given to me (:

  • Jermaine Toh says:

    I believe that each and every acquaintance in our everyday lives is a gift in its own. These people, through leaving their footprints in our lives, change us for the the better or the worst. The time together, long and short, good or bad, enriches our lives and pieces into the memories we hold dearly on to.

  • JC says:

    My mother is my greatest gift to me. Though there may be times of anguish and annoyance at each other but when you settle down and reflect on it, family members are still the closest to you no matter what happens. Merry Christmas to all!

  • Jessica says:

    My fiancé is the greatest gift I have. He completes my life. =) Having been through 2-year long distance relationship even after our engagement, we learn how important our presence for each other. And we truly appreciate the time that we can spend together. Can’t wait to see him during Christmas! =)

  • kitty charmy says:

    My greatest gift is my sister whom had just passed away after battling prolonged illness.Although she has left us physically,she will always be the angel in our heart .Even though she is young,she has taught us alot of invaluable lessons and left many wonderful memories.She had never cringed in pain or complained about the pain or sufferings she went through,she was always cheerful always so ready to go through all the obstacles.Because of her,we are all stronger,more mature and ready to handle any obstacles or problems we faced.She will always be remembered and held on dear to our hearts.

  • Bernie T says:

    Hello Mag, thank you for organising this giveaway again this year! :)

    The best gift that anyone could gift to me is their friendship although we are miles apart. I value the companionship my friends in Melbourne have provided through the years I’ve been there studying and working. We really talk about all kinds of things and they brighten up my otherwise dreary days. I’m super grateful for them and I don’t ever wish to lose that kind of friendship.

    Also wishing you a very Merry Chirstmas~


  • Adeline Tan says:

    Hi Mag! I would say my greatest gift is my sister. She is my beauty consultant, image consultant, bff and perhaps even like a mum. As we are 7 years apart, she took responsibility of taking care of me since young such as patting me to sleep when I was a toddler. She never really stop “serving” me or the family although she might complain now and then. Thanks for the awesome giveaway! God Bless!

  • angela says:

    My parents are definitely the most precious gifts to me! They’re the ones who accept and love me for who I am truly. they are always accomodating to my needs. thank you for this awesome giveaway! :)

  • Jenny says:

    my dad and my mom are the best gifts that i can have! My dad worked hard all his life to provide the best for the family, went all out to save my life when i was on very very sick, regardless of money and time spent. My mom is my best friend, even till today when im married and have my own family. She listens to all my problems, happiness and gives me the best advice. I LoVE THEM!

  • Cheeying says:

    When it comes to cosmetics, the first person that comes to my mind is my mum(: she has been the one whole have been spent most of her time and effort to teach me all the values of life. Besides being filial to her, I guess the only thing I could pamper my mum in future when I start working is to get her cosmetics and beauty products to let her feel young and pretty again.

    Thank you for holding this giveaway, it’s only through such gift always, people like me would have the chance to get such awesome surprises for the people we want to thank each Christmas:) you really have such an awesome giveaway, thank you so much:)

  • KL says:

    Mum. She’s the greatest, if not the only gift that I’ve been blessed with all my life. She’s my adviser, confidante, friend, buddy, sister (yes we’re that close ;)) and always my pillar of strength. She teaches by example and her life and actions will always inspire me. <3

  • Rahayu says:

    My younger brother is a gift to our family after being the only child for 14 years. I thought at first he was a burden as I no longer have the attention from my parents but until now, when he is around, I’ve never felt an ounce of loneliness at home even though we do have squabbles. For someone who hardly talks since young, he has made me feel like I truly have a best friend with his chatty nature and hopefully a companion for life even when he is married and have children one day.

  • Grace Koch says:

    My family are my greatest gift to me. Without which I am not who am I today. My cornerstones. My reasons for keeping me whole and sane and at the same time constantly daring me to strive for bigger, better things. They are my guides and the ones I can always count on. They are always there for me even at my lowest of lows. The greatest gift of a lifetime.

  • Sharin Chia says:


    Thanks for the gifts, special and meaningful for the festive season.

    My mum, a selfless and understanding mother is the greatest gift to me.

  • Cynthia Chandramuljana says:

    Dear Mag

    Thank you for the giveaway… For me, my mum is my greatest gift. She loved me unconditionally, always ready to sacrifice to help and support me. She never asked for anything in return and I feel so blessed to have her.

  • teo suhan says:

    My husband is the greatest gift to me because he is always trust me and is always here for me. Love him always!

  • jo says:

    I would say the little kiddos in my church choir are one of my greatest gifts!
    The Christmas season is just round the corner and we’re gearing up for a big year-end performance and it just warms my heart to see the children pick up the song and dance moves so quickly. Plus, they even have the initiative to want to bring home the song booklets just so they can practice! It’s a rarity to see children so hardworking and poring over long lines of text.
    Seeing them smile, and hearing their voices is really something very magical :)
