Little Little Surprises from Little Little Gifts

I really love receiving parcels in the mail!

When I came back from Hong Kong, I saw a huge parcel sitting by the side of my bed. I knew at once that my parcel from Little Little Gifts had arrived.

When I first knew of this website, I spent almost two hours clicking around the site and marvelling at the many cute stuff there.

Little Little Gifts is company based in Singapore. With their cute tag line of little little gifts, big big thoughts, they believe that no gift is too small and that it is indeed the big thoughts that count. In the act of gifting and paying it forward, Little Little Gifts aims to spread the joy locally and to other parts of the world. Yay for my international blogger friends!

Everything was bubble wrapped with newspaper cushioning the spaces in between.

Photobucket

I was pleasantly surprised to see that the items have been gift wrapped.

Upon checking out at their site, gift wrapping arrangement could be arranged in the special request field. I did not opt for the gift wrapping service; hence, imagine my pleasant surprise when I saw the items being wrapped. I'm pretty impressed with their good service.

Photobucket

Wanna see what I got from them?


~* Mini Fridge Pen Stand *~

Here's unveiling a mini fridge pen stand. It's actually a stationery holder. If I were still at the Barbie playing age, I would use this as Barbie's fridge.

Photobucket

Various designs like Cola, Coke Zero, Pepsi etc are available. I was like a kid in a candy store deciding on which design to choose. In the end, I chose this cute Cola fridge.

Photobucket

Like a little girl (or should I say a bimbotic lady), I was rather thrilled that the vegetable crisper compartment could be pulled out.

Photobucket

I did not snap a picture of the top part of the fridge. It could act as a coin bank when the cover is closed with the coin slot at the top or as a pen holder when the cover is slid to the back. Click here to see the pictures.


~* Merci! La Vie! Key Ring *~ 

Next was the Merci! La Vie! Key Ring. I was particularly drawn to the antique-looking key that came along with it. My current feng shui key ring had lost its "charm" and it's time for me to change a new key chain.

Photobucket

I love the vintage feel of this key ring. Oh yes, it is stated that the strap is made of natural cow hide leather. I could smell the leather as soon as I opened the box.

Photobucket

They have other designs available too but I'm only drawn to the antique key design.

Photobucket


~* Sunny-Side-Up Frying Pan Clock *~

Next on the list is this quirky sunny-side-up frying pan clock. I opted for the red one coz I've been conditioned to think that frying pans are red. lol...

I could not snap a good picture of the frying pan so here's one which I ripped off little little gifts website.

Photobucket

It is available in many other colours and they're having a sale now. Great to give to that chef friend of yours! I'm giving this to my jovial uncle who happens to be a really great cook. It will match the wall in his dining room very well.

Photobucket


~* Touch Stylus Pencil *~

I also got this old-school-looking touch stylus pencil which I intend to give to either of my sisters as I'm an iDiot with no iPhone or iPad.

Photobucket 

Wait, I think I would keep it for myself and use it on my hubby's iPad when he's back from the seas or probably when we decided not to be iDiots anymore and get iPhone 4s or something.

Photobucket

The pencil mimics the natural conductive qualities of the human finger using a special electro conductive rubber which works with both capacitive and resistive screens.

Photobucket
Did you know? I have a little pet peeve. I simply cannot stand products with bad English on them. I was reading the back of the packaging for the stylus pencil, trying to pick up all the bad English to laugh at but I found none. This sort of gave me a good impression of the product even though I haven't tried it yet.

Don't laugh at me, don't you do that too? You don't? Sigh... I'm gonna sit in the corner and eat some worms now.

Photobucket


~* Chi Cat Handphone Strap *~

I have a soft spot for furry animals especially cats and I instantly fell in love with this lovable sad-looking Chi cat handphone strap which was used as this product's main picture.

Photobucket

It reminds me of my late Simba looking at us with sad eyes when we did not give her food as we thought she was too fat and should cut down on food.

There were so many different expressions of Chi cat which nudged at my soft spot that I could not quite decide which to choose.

Photobucket

In the end, I chose B, C, E and G.

Photobucket

My 4 cuties came wrapped like this.

Photobucket

Presenting my 4 cuties.

Photobucket

Happy Chi, Depressed Chi, Angry Chi and Sad Chi which I shall call Planking Chi.

Photobucket

My only problem now is that I can't decide which Chi cat to keep for myself and which to give my sisters.

I'm really pleased with all my items and the whole shopping experience at Little Little Gifts was truly a pleasant and fuss-free one. Queries which I posted on their Facebook page was promptly answered within the same day.

Quality items at affordable prices with top-notch service all at one-stop, I'm very sure I would be a return customer at Little Little Gifts.

  1. Those are super awesome items to get in the mail!! Haha I was just saying how I'm so glad for shipping services. I love getting stuff in the mail :)

  2. Oh-my-goodness, these are SOOOOOOO cute especially that frying pan clock and kittens!!!! I wonder how much they charge to ship to the US, I have to check them out. Would be great gift ideas for Christmas. Thanks Jo for sharing. I miss seeing cute stuff like this since I moved to the US. Their stuff seriously lack of cute factors.

    I sent you a list of attractions in BKK awhile back, not sure if you got it. Flood situation still looks pretty bad and is widespread to several parts of city, you may want to postpone your trip. It is unstoppable now, pretty much :(

  3. Hi Thanks a lot for letting me know about my butterfly not coming up on the chrome ULR. I always use firefox so never realized it.

    how I see about art is that sometimes you need a little direction. If you have talent mix and match colors but at a small age if the right direction is given it helps later on.

    I specially like the cat cuties and the stylus. On my way to check this internet site.

  5. They are adorable, Jolene! Omgsh... the Chi Cat Handphone strap instantaneously captured my heart... oh those cute kitty poses, and the expressions are just so adorable! I would've bought the entire collection, just for the heck of it, and display it!

    The fridge pen stand looks cute too, I really like it. But it got elbowed out of the top spot by the Chi cats haha.

    Oh this online shop would render me peniless if I were living in Singapore lol Such lovely items, and the ones you purchased are very lovely, my dear.

    Cheers,

  6. Gahhhh!! Those are ADORABLE!! I love everything you purchased, especially that pen stand and the keychain. :)

    I need to check out that website!

    I hope you're having a fantastic week. xoxo

  7. LOL, you picked out some great things--very cute. I read the name of the company as "little girl gifts" and I didn't like the look on that little devil's face! What was hs up do??? =)

    Regardless of what gadgets you buy or don't, you'd never qualify as an iDiot.

  8. Tessa Tham,
    You are no longer in Singapore currently right? I should have talked about Little Little Gifts earlier so you could get some stuff with local postage.

    ~~~

    Nelah,
    You should really consider! I'm like so bowled over by all their cute, quirky stuff. I tend to always add more items to my buys to make sure that the postage justifies if I were to buy from overseas. To divide out the cost inclusive the postage, the items are still considered quite cheap.

    I didn't receive the list of attraction. Our last email was on Chris Botti. lol... We've postponed the trip to mid Nov and would continue watching the situation.

    PS: Could you send me the email again? Thanx!

    amy,
    Welcome here! =)

    PAPS,
    Thanx for your advice. I would be trying out some painting when I've got more time on my hand after settling my major project. Will follow you in a while. =)

    ~~~

    Wi,
    High 5 on the Chi Cats! Why didn't I think of collecting it as a set? That would be quite cute.

    Haha... the shop won't render you penniless. The items are quite affordable. Inclusive of postage, I think they still cost cheaper than outside for some of the similar products I saw outside.

    ~~~

    Jennifer,
    Hope you find stuff that you like! Have an enjoyable Halloween week!

    Rick,
    Little Girl Gifts? lol... Dun worry Rick, I would always be able to take your joke (referring to your latest post about people misunderstanding your jokes). I kinda like the devil! I always like cute evil beings and this devil looks so cheekily and sneakily cute.

    Nah, all people who don't own any iStuff are called iDiots in my mental dictionary.

  14. You got so many cute things Jo! I love the stationary holder the most - it's so cute! The frying pan clock is really nice too :D I've never heard of this company before but it looks like they have a nice selection of quirky/cute gift :)

  15. I never take offense at your hunor either--I like your jokes and your thoughts.

  16. Penelope,
    They are right? I simply couldn't resist their cuteness!

    ~~~

    Dreamy Princess,
    I'm totally in love with my Chi Cats too.

    I think I would make it a point to let people know when I'm joking. Yeah, I don't think we would have any language misunderstanding. Cya around!

    ~~~

    Yvonne,
    I love the logo too. I've always loved angel and devil together. The hours would be well-spent!

    ~~~

    Kim,
    Yup, great service! I hope you had a whale of a time clicking around the site and squealing at all the cute stuff!

    ~~~

    Wi,
    Haha... you're so cute... Why don't you get some Chi Cats too? SEA countries' postage shouldn't be too ex right? Anyway, I tend to always add more items to my buys to make sure that the postage justifies if I were to buy from overseas. To divide out the cost inclusive the postage, the items are still considered quite cheap.

    ~~~

    Rinny,
    Guess coz they're Singapore company so you haven't heard of them before. PS: I MIGHT just use the mini fridge as part of my giveaway! It's really too cute for me to bear to use it. Haha...

    ~~~

    Rick,
    I'm glad you like my humour and jumbled thoughts. =)

  17. omg Jo, I LOVE these kind of things! So quirky and cute! Dyou know I've spent a lot of my monies on Korean eBay sellers and online stores buying unnecessary, but extremely cute things. I haven't even opened some of them haha

    ReplyDelete
  18. Joey,
    I can imagine you liking these stuff with no difficulty at all!!! Haha... So did you send a lot of time looking at the cute stuff there?

    I get what you mean by buying stuff and leaving them unopened. I'm like that too sometimes.

    ReplyDelete
  19. I love all the items you got from Little Little gifts! They are all soo kawaii! I am going to have to check out this site! Especially since they cater for internationals :)
