Gifting Made Ximple

Between our busy schedules, worrying about 2020 and trying not to crowd shopping malls (due to Covid-19), many of us will probably be doing our Christmas shopping last minute and online. If you have not gotten your christmas gifts, don’t worry, this article will make it simple. When it comes to price-comparing, Ximple has got your back. We have done the leg-work for you and compiled a list of gift ideas sorted by interest categories and budget ranges! Check them out below!

Gift exchanges are always a hassle because we don’t wish to give or receive pointless clutter. However, it can be difficult shopping for something useful and meaningful that fits the budget. To make things worse, most gift idea articles and videos only showcase the expensive stuff. So, here at Ximple, we have taken the liberty to also collate some of the more affordable gift ideas for you.
