7 things I’d like to receive as housewarming gifts once I get my own HDB flat

I’m a single Singaporean female turning 28 years old in June this year.

While many of my peers are either attached or about to get married, I’m relatively content with singlehood and where I am in life right now.

In fact, content enough that I don’t mind not getting married at all.

After all, there are many other things to look forward to in life besides getting hitched.

For example, celebrating life at my own pace and getting my own place.

While there are still some years before I get my own HDB flat, I have taken steps to plan for the day this finally comes.

To get ahead of the curve, I’ve even put together a list of seven things I’d like to receive from friends and family as housewarming gifts once I do get my own place.

After all, living alone and furnishing a new home on a single-income means I would need all the help I can get.

1) EuropAce 2-In-1 Powerful Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner EHV W80 & EHV Z10 (2 Year Warranty)

Most homeowners would probably agree that household cleaning is one of the biggest banes of having your own place.

That’s why it’s super important to invest in quality cleaning equipment because it will make your life so much easier.

With a lightweight body of just 1.3kg, EuropAce’s 2-in-1 Powerful Cordless Handheld Vacuum Cleaner is both easy to use and long-lasting.

It also comes with multiple brush tools to clean any flooring materials, as well as a 12KPa powerful suction.

2) Walch® 9X Antibacterial Laundry Capsules 65 Pods x 3 Packs

Laundry is one of my least favourite household chores, simply because I don’t do it very often and always get confused by the different steps/ buttons on the washing machine.

Thankfully, Walch’s antibacterial laundry capsules are here to make my life much easier because all I have to do is pop one into the washing machine per load of clothes.

Not only are these laundry capsules plant-based (and therefore more environmentally friendly), they also kill 99.9 per cent of germs and have nine times the cleaning power of regular laundry detergents.

They also do not contain harmful chemicals like chlorine, parabens, phosphates, phthalates or optical brighteners, making them a definite household asset.

3) [Shopee Exclusive] Bundle of 4: Detox Enzyme 30s x 4 [Mega Size Bundle]

By the time I own my own home, I would be in my mid to late 30s.

According to Kinohimitsu, this is the age range where digestive enzymes in my body start to decline, resulting in inadequate enzymes to carry out digestion and detoxification processes.

To spring clean my body and restore my gastrointestinal health, Kinohimitsu’s Detox Enzyme would be perfect as a housewarming gift.

4) SK-II Pitera™ Essentials Facial Treatment Essence (230ml/ 250ml/ 330ml) PITERA™ Essence Street Art Limited Edition (230ml) [SK-II / SK-2 / SKII / SK ii | Pitera | Skin Regeneration | Wrinkle | Firmness]

SK-II has often been called the holy grail of skincare, and while I personally haven’t used their products before, starting in my 30s hopefully isn’t too late at all.

Since the whole process of buying and doing up my own place is sure to take a toll on my skin, SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence will be more than useful in regenerating my skin and firming up any wrinkles or stress marks on my face.

5) [Official Warranty] NEW 2021 Xiaomi TV P1 43 inch 4K UHD | Android 10 | Smart TV | Hands-free Google Assistant | Stereo Speakers

Buying a TV is a pretty huge expense on any new homeowner’s part.

While I do enjoy watching my regular dose of Netflix movies and shows, I’m not too sure if blowing a few hundred dollars on a TV would be at the top of my mind when I finally have my own place.

If my friends and family are willing to pool their money to get me a TV much like the new 43-inch Xiaomi one as a housewarming gift, who am I to say no?

6) Roam SL Wireless Portable Speaker

Ah yes, what’s a housewarming party without a good sound system?

Friends and family who know the way to my heart (or in this case, home) would understand how much I enjoy a good and reliable portable speaker.

Given that I’ll be entertaining guests in my new home, a wireless portable speaker will definitely come in handy in setting the mood with my Spotify tunes.

7) ASICS Women GEL-BND Sportstyle Shoes in Soft Sky/ Midnight

Exercising is not and has never been my forte.

However, the sad truth is that I have to exercise regularly to stay fit because I don’t have sky-high metabolism.

If I get the ASICS Women GEL-BND sportstyle shoes as a housewarming gift, I’ll definitely be more motivated to exercise and stay active.
