For the frugal yet fashionable
We’re giving you a reason to get a headstart on all that new year, new me stuff, and prep those outfits for visiting in advance. Shopee’s Fashion Sale is happening from Jan. 18 — Jan. 20, and items like this Willa Striped Printed Dress (S$34.95, U.P. S$69.90) from Yacht 21 are on sale. It’s a modern take on a cheongsam, with its sweet blue color and flattering stripes, which you can dress up or down with heels or some white sneakers. And of course, it matches perfectly with the smug grin from knowing you got it at 50% off.
Now that you look the part, you’ll need somewhere to keep those crisp new notes. If you’ve been looking for a new wallet, the Kate Spade Staci Micro Trifold Wallet (S$89, U.P. S$218) has a classic design that comes in three colors of black, red and beige. Those in the market for a new backpack will love the Fjallraven Vardag (S$54.50, U.P. S$109) which looks small at first glance, but don’t let that fool you. The waterproof backpack holds quite a bit and even comes with a slot inside for a tablet, but it might also fit a 13-inch laptop.
For the aspiring Gordon Ramsay in your life
By now, you know to leave the big purchases until a sale, and now’s absolutely the time. Get ready to hit ‘add to cart’ on that cold-press juicer you’ve been eyeing — you know, as part of that New Year’s resolution to be healthier, ‘cause the Home & Appliances Sale is on from Jan .21 — Jan. 23.
This CNY, get the best of both worlds with this 2-in-1 BBQ Hot Pot Set (S$99, U.P. S$199).

After you’ve been cooking up a storm you’ll need help with cleaning up, and the Airbot Supersonics Pro Cordless Vacuum (S$149.90, U.P. S$169.90) will make light work of the dreaded annual spring cleaning. The floor brush has an LED light, which makes it easier to see under sofas and beds so you can start off the new year on a very clean slate.
For the thoughtful gift-giver
Now, every CNY means there are brownie points to be earned with the in-laws, and the new year goodies department is where you can shine. If you, like many others have tried and failed to secure an order of bak kwa, you’ll wanna set a reminder for Jan. 24 — Jan. 26, ‘cause that’s when you’ll be able to snag some great deals at the Food & Beverages Sale.
