Everything you need for the best Christmas in Singapore ever is right here, from stocking-stuffers and gourmet grub to the best places to catch the Christmas lights
Prop up your Christmas tree and carve those turkeys; it’s our favourite time of year and we just can’t wait to ring in the Yuletide cheer this December. Don’t know where to start? We’ve put together the ultimate guide to this year’s festivities to make your Christmas a very merry one indeed.
Getting into the Christmas spirit
Though Singapore may not have the classic White Christmas that’s so often associated with the holiday season (damn you, permanent summer!), there’s Christmas spirit in spades here! Let carollers warm your heart and take in the holiday lights with your family and loved ones at these decked up malls. Alternatively, homebodies who’d rather spend a quiet Christmas Eve at home can have a few friends over, curl up on the couch and get into the festive spirit with our top pick of holiday movies, and even swap greetings cards.
Gourmet Christmas eats
We all love a home-cooked Christmas dinner, but that’s no reason to miss out on these gourmet festive offerings. Whether you’re looking for an all-you-can-eat Thanksgiving extravaganza or Christmas dinner with a twist, our guides to Thanksgiving and Christmas dining are bound to have a festive feast that’ll get your stomach rumbling.
Stocking stuffers and festive frocks
As the season of giving comes around, we’re sure to find ourselves on the hunt for the best gifts. Check out our list of Christmas markets if you’re tired of uninspired, clichéd gifts. Want to dress to the nines for that fancy-schmancy dinner party? Our guide to evening dresses will make sure you’re not left standing alone under the mistletoe. Don’t forget a killer blowout to go with your dress!
Throwing a Yuletide shindig
Christmas trees, festive decorations, turkey and more! Our guides will make Christmas prepping a breeze and help you put together the perfect party in no time. Get Christmas roasts from these delis and put together the perfect cheese board with these purveyors of fine fromage. But if that’s still too much of a hassle, you can always save yourself the trouble and order in your Christmas dinner with these catering and food delivery services.
We’re not saying Christmas spirit has to come from a bottle, but a free-flow of alcohol always helps to keep the party going. We’ll hook you up with a list of alcohol delivery services to make sure the wine, and conversation, flows all night long.
And when the party finally winds down and you find your fridge stuffed with more leftovers than you know what to do with, our list of Christmas leftover recipes will make sure you’ll always have a midnight snack at hand.
Jet off for a white Christmas
If you really want that iconic wintry Christmas, you’ll have to hop on a plane and take off for cooler locales. Fly North for the holidays and experience a truly white Christmas with our guide to the best winter holiday destinations. Remember to pack some warm clothes! Or hey, dress like Santa while you’re at it.
