A brief background

Kalms is a 52 year old brand name that resonates with the public for being the leader in the gifting industry. Unknown to many, Kalms first started out as Kalms Records, opening its stores in 1964 and enjoying the fruits of its success as the top retailer of American records in Singapore. In 1982, Kalms decided that its forte was in gift-giving, and it opened its first gift store in Singapore. By 1990, Kalms had become a household name in Singapore with locations throughout the country.

In all our long history, we have come to realise that gift-giving is a unique art form that is honed and mastered over time. We understand that meaningful gifts are not merely wrapped up presents – they are the embodiment of thoughts and feelings that come straight from the heart. Thankfully, we were not alone in our pursuit of the perfect gift and we have been lucky to have built a strong and loyal customer base that has offered us their unwavering support over the years.

Today, Kalms continues to work closely with an extensive network of reputable and superior gift suppliers, such as Carte Blanche Greetings and UK Greetings Cards. We remain true to our core values and pride ourselves on our dedication to offering our customers excellent customer service and gift products. As always, we promise to devote our best efforts to helping you find the perfect gift for every occasion.

Our present

In 2016, Kalms underwent an exciting and radical transition from a traditional brick and mortar retail chain store into an online retail business, complemented with a fully automated retail concept. We have since closed all our retail stores in Singapore and opened a 5000 square foot display gallery at 16 Kallang Place, #01-21, Singapore 339156 that showcases all of our products as well as our Automated Retail Machines (ARMs). Our ARMs are not just carrying our excellent gift products, they are also here to provide retail and distribution solutions for you.

As an extension of our commitment to innovation and transformation, we have also  introduced jewelry as our new premium gift products. Our current collection features an eclectic range of 925 Sterling Silver jewelry with natural and genuine gemstones, the first of many more to come.

Aside from our online store, you will now also be able to purchase our gift products at our ARMs in Singapore. We have future plans to roll out even more ARMs in the future, so expect greater things to come your way.
