Art therapy is a versatile and relatively affordable way to make sure your mental health is getting some TLC. Remember how jolly we felt as kids when we did our colouring sheets? I’ve been chasing that high ever since. If art jamming studios aren’t your thing, you can craft high-level artwork right at home, or organise a wholesome picnic and painting sesh with your friends.

Cop Typo’s watercolour pens ($29.99) to achieve a nice watercolour effect on your doodles without having to mess around with actual paint pots and brushes. You can control the ink flow depending on how opaque you want the colours to be, and play around with blending and smudging with droplets of water.

2. Mini vending machine – For those who thrive on treats


Snacks can be one heckuva motivator. If you need that extrinsic push to keep you on the ball for tasks, get one of these cute mini vending machines ($34.99).

You can fill them up with whatever treat you’d like, as long as it’s not too large that it’d get trapped in the dispenser chute, or too tiny that it’ll slide right out without turning the knob. A good gauge is anything between Skittles to Gobstopper-sized.

For those who’d like to work for their treat, opt for the mini arcade claw machines ($69.99). Keep in mind that the mechanism might take a while to finesse. But hey, at least you’re the owner of the machine, right? And you won’t have to insert a token for each try. Take this chance to practise before you head to claw machine arcades and try out unique claw machines.

While it’s not realistic to lug along a whole mechanical keyboard, you can pop one of these foldable wireless keyboards ($19.99) right into your bag. In fact, they’re so compact that they can even slide in your pocket. Whip it out whenever you’re ready to clock some major WPM. That’s Words Per Minute, FYI.
