Lifestyle stores collage

We don’t know about you, but we absolutely love wandering in and around lifestyle stores. Perhaps it’s the sheer size of them or possibly the fact that they carry such a wide array of gorgeous items and ornaments that we could only wish our homes had space for.

These stores are usually filled to the brim with quirky items and little knick-knacks that will definitely keep you occupied for quite some time. They are also great places to head to if you’re looking for a gift for someone or if you want some pretty pieces to decorate your home.

From the ever-bustling Don Don Donki to vintage bookstore, Books Actually, here are 14 of our favourite lifestyle stores in Singapore that you definitely should check out.

books actually


It’s easy to get lost in a good book on a lazy day, and a place like Books Actually is no exception. Nestled in a quaint, quiet neighbourhood of Tiong Bahru, this gorgeous vintage will easily keep you preoccupied for a while.

This hipster-esque bookstore does not just house a plethora of good books. They also have pretty, old-school trinkets on display and for sale. You can also take home the treasures that you’ve found here in one of their customised tote bags which are sold for S$10 each.
