We celebrate Singapore’s 57th National Day with “Stronger Together, Majulah!” and this year is unique because we managed to strive through a tough time together - now, stronger than ever.
If you are staying home during this public holiday and taking a well-rested day off, here are our top 5 local favourite brands that Spectrum Store Singapore brought in to keep you company while staying true to your spirit.
1. Red Republic
Starting out as a Souvenir from Singapore, Red Republic rebranded with their unique style, inspired by Singapore’s diverse culture and lifestyle - offering us a range of items both decorative and functional. Suited for both locals and foreigners, looking for an interesting gift or for yourself.
One of our favourite and the most used item would be the Kopi Mug - fits perfectly for all the kopi, kopi-o, kopi-c, kopi peng and we can on and on but you get it. All the kopi lovers out there are supporting our local coffee shop.
2. Nom Nom Plush

You heard that right - enjoy your favourites with Curry Puffs, Bubble Tea, Ice Cream Sandwich, Wa Ko Kueh, Pineapple Tart and Otah. Hug it, pouch it, hang it and store your pens/pencils in them, you get to choose.
3. LOVE SG
You can’t get any quirkier than them!
Designed locally, blending both local and international appeal. Not only focusing on the overall over but the clever details and quality of their goods represent our approach to the conventional idea of the ubiquitous souvenir: bold, cheeky and slightly surprising.
Drawing inspiration from all things in our backyard which give Singapore its distinct identity, be it intriguing laws which may seem peculiar to outsiders, or local lingo which leaves foreigners scratching their heads.
4. OK CAN/Meykrs
I know, we can’t get enough food-related cushions and pouches! Bringing our favourite childhood snacks with us without over-consuming them? - Yes, please!
Ranges from Fishball Cushion, Fishball Keychain and Pink Gem Biscuit Coin Pouch, are such cute accessories to throw on your couch or bag. Besides being quirky, it is also functional and it spices the daily objects that we use - bringing touches of laughter or a nostalgic moment.
5. Wet Tee Shirt
