Covid-19 has changed our lives in one way or another. Even our list of everyday items is not spared. Hand sanitisers used to be just an article we picked off pharmacies’ shelves but they are now seen everywhere and have become an essential part of our lives.
We weren’t surprised to see them becoming THE wedding favour of choice in recent months. After all, they are not just practical and essential but also look classy! Here’s a list for you to take your pick, even if it is just for your everyday use.
This series is also part of our #GoLocal efforts, featuring products from Singapore.
