It’s time to deck the halls again with Christmas decorations such as wreaths, ornaments, baubles, socks and fairy lights from these stores in Singapore.
You know it’s Christmas in Singapore when “Jingle Bells” plays on repeat in the supermarkets and Orchard Road is all lit up. But there’s nothing that can get you in the festive mood quite like seeing your home all decked out like a winter wonderland – big fir tree, twinkly lights, shiny baubles, boughs of holly, and all that. And with the big day looming ever closer, now is the time to get started on the Christmas decorations to get your home looking its yuletide best.
Marks and Spencer
Marks and Spencer is at the top of the bauble game, so if you’re looking to dress up your tree with sparkling shine, check out its range of glitter, glass, metallic and sequinned items in festive shapes like fairies and Santa alongside classic pine cones and stars.
Marks and Spencer, multiple locations including Marina Square and Parkway Parade.
Crate and Barrel
Gone may be the days of Crate & Barrel’s Christmas treasure trove at its flagship Orchard Gateway store (it shuttered in November), but you can always hop on over to the brand’s Ion outlet for ornaments, baubles and decorative touches with various themes to choose from. Deck your halls with its mini LED pine trees or rustic wreaths, before putting the finishing touches on your tree with adorable animal ornaments, snowman trinkets, laser-cut wooden snowflakes and more.

Robinsons The Heeren
One of the most magical department-store-to-Christmas-wonderland transformations has to be Robinsons The Heeren. If you’re not feeling those fuzzy vibes yet, try wandering through its Christmas corner for a dose of the festive spirit – but we challenge you not to buy anything from its range of oversized baubles that your tree will look naked without.

Love it or loathe it, Ikea fills a gap in the market all year round and Christmas time is no exception. Get in soon for its latest range of decorations and knick-knacks, as well Christmas-themed wrapping paper (you’ll have to face the gift shopping eventually). Think red, silver, gold and green baubles that’ll brighten up any home. The best part? It all comes at cheap prices, which means you can do it all over again next year. Kill two birds with one stone and pick up some pressies for the kids while you’re there – Ikea’s toys and art and craft materials are of surprisingly good quality and value.
