shelby's 30 picks for christmas

'Tis the season to be jolly... and giving of course :)

Bisou BonBon was recently featured in Crave of The Malay Mail with other unique brands in the article: What We'd Like To See Under the Christmas Tree This Year (SO SO SO AWESOME KAN??)

They're generally handmade, artisanal or local specialty products given the industry that I'm in.. perhaps I'll have another post on mainstream with luxe items, we'll see.
