KUALA LUMPUR, March 17 — We often wait for that special occasion to gift. But why must it be only on Valentine's Day or Single Awareness Day that we send a bouquet of flowers? Also, why should gifts be limited to just between couples?

In the spirit of giving, life can be celebrated every day. If I want to gift my former classmate a handcrafted goldfish named Bo just because... well, it is perfectly fine.

Time and tide waits for no man and neither do handcrafted gifts (because they are usually in limited stocks). In a world of high technology, handcrafted gifts are more rare and much more appreciated as they are made from the heart.

Here are some ideas for handcrafted items with different price categories that we curated from local artisans. Don't wait till tomorrow to gift. Do it now!
