If celebs played Secret Santa

Let’s face it, no matter how many times people say they don’t want gifts, they never fail to bring a smile to one’s face, especially during the holidays. So in the spirit of giving, we decided to ask your favourite local stars what they would gift their celeb pals for Christmas. Here’s what they came up with:

Sheila Sim 🎁 Chen Hanwei

Sheila Sim 🎁 Chen Hanwei

“I would give Hanwei a bowtie. I recently saw a camo print one when I was searching for bowties for my wedding and I immediately thought of him. He likes camo a lot and he likes bowties as well, so it's a perfect combination. We get each other gifts not on an occasion basis. If we see something nice or something we think the other party will like, we will buy it for each other.”

We recommend:
Camouflage Wool Bow Tie, US$19 (S$24) from The Tie Bar

Ya Hui 🎁 Chen Liping

"I will treat Liping to a spa or onsen (Japanese hot spring) session. I heard there is an onsen place in Kallang so we can go check it out together. We are so tired from filming so it will be nice if we can get a massage and soak in the onsen. Actually it would be quite paiseh to go together [because we will be in the nude] and people might recognise us. Okay it’s a bad idea, scrap that!"

Editor’s note: Ya Hui, put your embarrassment aside and just do it. There is nothing more enjoyable than spending a relaxing day with your girlfriends. Just try to keep your eyes on her face ;)

We recommend:
Onsen and massage package, from $68 at Yunomori Onsen & Spa

Shaun Chen 🎁  Zhang Yaodong

"I will get Yaodong a book on the joys of marriage, so that he will find a partner and get hitched soon. He might not be interested in my personal experience, so I think a book with expert advice will be more suitable. Yaodong, quick, get a move on it. You shouldn’t carry on like this!"

Hong Ling 🎁 He Ying Ying

"I would buy something in a shape of a pineapple for Ying Ying (aka Queen Onglai). She’s got some fetish going on for pineapples – everything she owns from her handphone case to her bag and clothes are pineapples - so maybe I will get a big pineapple plush toy for her."

We recommend:
Giant pineapple plush pillow, $9 from Lazada

Aloysius Pang 🎁  Xu Bin

Aloysius Pang 🎁  Xu Bin

"I would get Xu Bin diapers or booties. It’s to give him pressure [to have a kid soon]. I can already picture myself carrying his baby. I didn’t think that seeing him get married would be such an emotional thing for me."

We recommend:
Winnie The Pooh diaper cake, $78 from from Baby Diapers Cake

Paige Chua 🎁 Chen Liping

"I want her to try yoga so much so I will buy her a yoga mat. A yoga membership is too expensive! She’s a basketball player and is quite active so yoga will complement her lifestyle. And as an actress, I think she should de-stress a little more, be a bit more Zen and chill when she is not working. I’ve never really introduced yoga to her which is why I would like to do so during Christmas."

We recommend:
Thick yoga mat, $19.90 from Decathlon

Jesseca Liu  🎁  Jayley Woo

"I would get an outfit for her dog, Bui Bui. I know she likes pets but I’m not sure what she likes exactly, so I will pick something cute for her dog like a palace princess costume or uniform. I am curious how she will look in it."

Editor’s note: It’s a good idea, except Bui Bui is male so how about this gender-neutral outfit instead?

We recommend:
Mudan Spring Cheongsam, $21 from Lolly Pup

Kayly Loh 🎁 James Seah

"I would get James Seah a jacket or hoodie because he is always showing up to sets in tees with very big arm holes. I will go ‘eh I can see your armpit' and he will flash me. He’s always airing it, it’s so bad for our eyes. It’s probably eye candy for other people but we’ve seen too much. But I know he wouldn’t wear it because he still loves his muscle tees!"

We recommend:
LMFAO "Sexy & I Know It" Black Hoodie Sweatshirt, US$29.99 (S$42) from Amazon

"I will probably get Paige a travel book because she loves exploring the world herself, maybe a Lonely Planet guide for India or Bali or California [so she can check out] Yosemite Nature Park. It's lovely!"

Gurmit Singh 🎁 Pierre Png

"I would get Pierre Png a jeep because he loves Land Rover jeeps. Just kidding! He has one and he is so into it – he is part of a club and all that – he likes driving it, goes camping in it so maybe will get him whole bunch of camping stuff and high tech gadgets."

We recommend:
BioLite Campstove, $242.74 from Lazada. This stove converts heat into electricity, allowing you to charge your gadgets, handy to have around when even your power bank runs out of juice.

Carrie Wong 🎁 Hayley Wo

“Hayley has everything so I would like to have a Christmas meal with her. I don’t cook but it would be nice if I could cook something for her and vice versa - that would be a milestone in our friendship. Maybe roast a turkey, just anyhow stuff everything in it? I will make it from scratch, effort mah. It’s the thought that counts. It’s not my problem if it doesn’t taste nice!"

We recommend:
Christmas gourmet French turkey package, $119 from Oh Deli, which comes pre-marinated and stuffed.

Kate Pang 🎁 Aileen Tan

"Actually I’ve already bought Aileen a Christmas gift but have yet to pass it to her. She likes Detective Conan, which is a popular Japanese manga character, so when I went to Japan, I got her some figurines and socks. Though Aileen looks glamourous, she is very young at heart and she watches Detective Conan anime."

We recommend:
Detective Conan: Crimson Love Letter limited edition Blu ray + DVD, S$101.79 from Play-Asia.com

"Edwin plays my brother in upcoming Channel 8 series Fifty and Fabulous and he’s very annoying in the show, so I will get him a prank gift. I will get a box, wrap it really nicely like it’s a luxury item but inside is a Jack in a Box, just to make fun of him. I have given prank gifts to my girlfriends before but not a Jack in a Box."

Editor’s note: Sorry Denise, you’re on your own for this one!
