Christmas Promotions in Singapore - 10 Places for the Best Deals
By , 09 Nov 2016
Once again, the time to wrap up the year has come. Besides our life, work, family and relationships, there is something else that requires some wrapping. That's right! Christmas shopping! The magical season where family and friends gather to share lots of love and laughter is only a month away.
Even though Christmas is ushered in with endless waves of sparkles, man-made snow (since we’re here in Singapore) and carols, Christmas shopping is akin to stress and panic packaged in a beautifully wrapped present topped with a dazzling bow. So where should you start shopping for gifts for your loved ones? Singapore may be tiny, but we definitely live up to our reputation as a shopping haven.
To help take some weight off your shoulders, here are 10 places that not only offer a treasure trove of unique products but at unbelievable deals!

What better way to spread the spirit of giving by bringing home or gifting some of these amazing items while supporting two great causes?
