SweetSpot Hamper from Marina Bay Sands

There is great joy in giving and receiving, especially during Christmas! I was really blessed to receive the SweetSpot Hamper from Marina Bay Sands. If you're wondering what would make the perfect romantic gift for someone you love dearly, this hamper will definitely wow your other half! Here's a word of caution though: the hamper felt like it weighed 3 kilograms or more and it's definitely not something you would enjoy carrying while shopping! Thankfully, it's so much more convenient if you are driving (or being driven)! Read till the end to find out about the ongoing promotions (valid till 1 January 2015).

SweetSpot Hamper — SGD$185.00

The Gift Hamper from SweetSpot @ Marina Bay Sands

Chocolate Pralines and Nuts

These designs are specially crafted for Marina Bay Sands, as you can tell from the iconic logo. Regrettably, the chocolates turned rather hard after being placed in the refrigerator. On hindsight, I believe these chocolates were made to withstand melting even in Singapore's hot and humid conditions, so there is no need to keep them in the fridge! Be delighted by an assortment of dark chocolate, milk or white chocolate and pure chocolate.

Chocolate-covered Nuts

These are extremely addictive! Compared to other chocolate brands I have previously sampled (including those from Switzerland and France), this certainly stands out with its crunchy and slightly powdery texture, It was also not overly sweet. I had this to tide me over the exams and I finished the entire box in a week. Surprisingly, I didn't fall sick!

Handmade Chocolate Raspberry Jam with nuts

Thick and gooey, this huge jar of handmade jam only lasts two months after opening. The texture of the nuts comes out strongly in the jam, and this makes your bread feel more like biscuits because it is so crunchy! I couldn't detect much chocolate though; the raspberry taste was so strong, I felt like I was eating the fruit itself. Refrigeration is required even before opening, to prevent it from spoiling.

 Piper-Heidsieck Champagne

Classic Piper-Heidsieck Champagne
My family is saving this bottle for Christmas! Having previously fallen in love with Piper-Heidsieck at an event, I can guarantee it's the sort of champagne you can have many rounds of without ever feeling sick of the taste.

Hot Chocolate Mix

Oh my gosh — what a rarefied taste of chocolate this is! The Hot Chocolate Mix features coarser-grain chocolate powder that appears somewhat lumpy, but it dissolves smoothly in hot water. It is only after sipping (or gulping) this wonderful drink that I realised I haven't actually tasted a genuine cup of hot chocolate before! Forget about those chocolate drinks that taste no different from Milo or Ovaltine, and get the real deal.

Divine Macarons — S$2.70/pc, S$14/box of 6, S$25/box of 12

Little pieces of heaven
Isn't it amazing that you can derive such pleasure in a delicate assortment of Wild Raspberry, Chocolate Mint, Strawberry Basil, Passion Fruit, Salted Caramel, and Dark Chocolate macarons? Presented in a magnetic box, these beautiful babies are evenly baked and melt readily in your mouth. I especially love them straight from the refrigerator - chilled, sweet heaven in your mouth.

You can also get a smaller SweetSpot three-tier gift box which consists of 12 pieces of macarons and 12 pieces of chocolate pralines and nuts. Retailing at S$68.00. 

This Christmas, take your breath away with the SweetSpot Signature Christmas Tree (S$65). This popular handcrafted chocolate tree is embellished with candied almonds, toasted coconut flakes and chocolate ornaments, making it a perfect decorative gift or after-dinner treat. Pamper yourself with the Chocolate Chestnut Church Yule Log (S$65), Mascarpone Cheese-Mango Yule Log (S$65) and Caramelized Apple Yule Log (S$65), or traditional Christmas favourites such as the Panettone (S$30) and Stollen (S$35).
