Buy your Christmas gifts and goodies from these women-owned home businesses
This festive season, lend your support to a local volunteer initiative helping women who are juggling their home businesses with caregiving or health issues.
If you're looking for fuss-free, heartfelt gift ideas for your family and friends, we've got just the thing.
Her Rise Above, a volunteer initiative that mentors home-based women entrepreneurs struggling to juggle their business with caregiving responsibilities or health issues, recently launched its Christmas catalogue, which features 10 of these women.
Feeling fancy? Pick from six festive hampers (priced at S$41 to S$132 each), filled with goodies like strawberry chia jam, cranberry chutney and gingerbread men, as well as Christmas cards and even a batik stocking.
Looking for treats to add to your own Christmas menu at home? You can buy these items individually, as well as cakes and pastries like almond rings, cinnamon rolls and lemon loaves. You can even buy a brownie decorating kit for some family fun.
You can score the batik stockings on their own as well (perfect gifts for your neighbours, we reckon), plus other fun stuff like Singapore-themed Christmas tree ornaments, Christmas tree-shaped napkins and even a poster personalised for your family or whoever you're giving it to.
This holiday season, Her Rise Above is also collaborating with Project Hills, a ground-up initiative that provides assistance to low-income communities in Singapore, including distributing warm meals to families in need.
For S$25 to S$37.50, you can have five sets of vegetarian bee hoon, ayam masak merah and tomato rice, curry chicken and roti jala, or turmeric chicken delivered to beneficiary families.
All food items are made in halal home kitchens.
