From baby essentials to birthday gift ideas and home decor picks, here’s what these Sassy Mamas have been adding to their Amazon Wish Lists
Could there really be one place you can get everything from groceries to baby wipes, strollers, themed birthday party gifts, and even stylish home decor – without even leaving the house? The answer is YES, and it’s Amazon.sg!
With literally millions of products available, it can be hard to keep track of what you’re buying, and what occasion it’s for – which is where Amazon’s fab Wish List tool comes in. Wish Lists can be used to keep track of all those great things you want to save for later (or that you like to purchase frequently); to share with your loved ones to collate what you need, like birthday and Christmas gifts; or as wedding and baby shower registries.
We’ve asked three Sassy Mama staffers to share their picks (in Wish List form, of course!) for various needs and occasions. It’s not hard when Amazon.sg has an extensive selection of baby and children products, among the numerous items on offer! Plus, make sure you click till the end to read all about the benefits of an Amazon Prime membership (just $2.99 a month and FREE delivery options on all orders!).

Did you know that Amazon.sg is the biggest baby and children products store in Singapore, mama? It’s truly the one-stop shopping destination for parents and parents-to-be, with hundreds of thousands of baby and children products, books (17 million of those alone!), and toys at great prices and convenience.
We are currently expecting our first baby early next year. Ever since we announced our family in the USA keeps asking us what we need and how to send gifts (it’s the first grandchild on both sides so the grandparents are extra excited). Amazon.sg makes it so easy! They have a massive selection for baby products from diapers, gear, clothing and more making them the largest baby product store in Singapore. Not only does Amazon.sg have a great selection they also help our family save on shipping and ensure that the same item won’t be purchase twice – because the last thing I need is 5 play gyms showing up!
Amazon products encompass all age groups, whether you’re about to embark on the newborn life, looking for toddler toys or educational tools and activities for older kids. You can even support home-grown brands with Amazon’s Shop Local page and browse the baby and toys category.
Wish lists are also helpful for non-profit organisations (NPOs) that want to collect donations that they need so it does not result in any waste. If you want to see this in action, check out the Amazon X Retail for Good Wishlist campaign in partnership with NVPC’s Retail for Good. The initiative makes it easy for shoppers to make donations and help the less fortunate. Shoppers simply need to purchase any items listed on various NPOs’ wish lists then items will be delivered to the NPOs and their beneficiaries. Some of the NPOs on board now include Blessings in a Bag, Children’s Wishing Well, Food Bank Singapore, and Singapore Red Cross. The initiative is a part of the broader Amazon’s Delivering Smiles program which focuses on giving back to the community and supporting day-to-day needs.
With our first iso-birthday coming up (“iso” as in ‘isolation’ for the uninitiated), we’re opting for a home-based birthday party. My son is turning 8 and is obsessed with Pokemon and Harry Potter, so we’ll be having a Pokemon-themed party. We’ve selected gifts across different price points, and will share the birthday wish list with grandparents back in Australia. There’s also a fun range of themed party decor and goodie bag items that will make organising the party a little easier!
Jessica’s idea for a themed birthday party is planned ahead, complete with suitable gift options, thanks to the Amazon.sg Wish List function. Having a registry is also helpful for loved ones to buy the exact presents that your kiddo needs, and prevents you from getting duplicate gifts!
If you’re looking for more ideas or searching for something more specific to add to your Wish List, Amazon’s interactive Gift Finder tool can help you narrow down your options to who you’re shopping for, including teens, toddlers, babies, and even kids in specific age groups. You can even get even more specific with the type of gift you are looking for, by filtering by price, best sellers, and even current deals of the day. There’s also gift wrapping options available at checkout, which means your gifts will arrive ready for the party!
This will be especially handy for the upcoming holiday season!
Has anyone else been into tidying up their space and creating a more conducive work-from-home environment? Amazon.sg’s Home & Kitchen category is well-stocked with everything you need to make your home more organised, whether you’re looking for kitchen organisers, bathroom accessories, chic storage baskets to stow away the kiddos’ toys, linens or even furniture!
Since I’ve been staying home a lot more, I’ve been finding ways to spruce up my living space. Looking for soft furnishings and home decor items using Amazon’s Wish List function has been a breeze – I love that I can add all the items I’m eyeing in one place, and it even doubles up as a mood board so I can make sure that all the items match aesthetically! If I end up not liking something on the list, I can remove it immediately and even find similar items to replace it with. Then it’s as easy as adding to cart and pressing ‘checkout’!
