Sleigh bells ring, are you listening?
To the SALES, that are glistening
A beautiful sight, we’re happy tonight
Walking in the winter wonderland!

⭐️ Behold, the season of greetings and gifting is here! Christmas is a festivity many people around the world look forward to. It’s a wonderful time of celebration with loved ones, basking in the merry mood of feasting and gifts. The origin of Christmas traces back to a religious belief, as many believers still commemorate this special day for its true meaning. This jolly day is made extra special as people take time to plan meals together, catching up over turkeys and hams, Christmas wine and pudding in the warm lights of the Christmas tree and melodic tunes of Christmas carols.

Since Christmas is a time of giving and festivities, you can expect the Christmas promos to last for a while, with sufficient inventory for this massive season of shopping, although you may not get certain items in the design you want. If you’re making your purchases online, it’s also good to note that delivery during such large-scale festive seasons tend to be slower due to the immense amount of orders. Do prepare ahead so that you don’t have to face a situation where you attend a Christmas party empty-handed because your parcels got delayed!

🛍 Christmas Shopping 101

With Christmas also comes Christmas gifts and sales. As people scramble to buy Christmas presents for families, friends and colleagues, many retail brands respond to this rush by offering Christmas promos during this time of the year. It’s a blessing for all of us as we get swamped with all the discounts and sales.

Not just that, many retail stores also react to the needs of Christmas shoppers and create beautiful Christmas exclusive merchandise, packaging and in-store wrapping to make shopping more convenient and quick. Likely to be faced with similar issues themselves, they know the hassle of getting presents for colleagues you’re probably not that familiar with, making it harder to buy something thoughtful and personalised. You would then look out for a gift that is universally-acceptable, gender-neutral, and hopefully presentable. In comes these beautifully-packaged Christmas gift sets, assembled together by companies who can second-guess your woes.

If you are one of the diligent shoppers and don’t fancy pushing shopping (for others) to the very last minute, good news for you! Many retail companies have already started their Christmas sales, and we’re talking about both in stores and online! Since you’re starting early, chances are that the items you’ve set your eyes upon should probably be in stock, so you need not fret over an alternative present to get. Since you’re early at this, why not buy a little Christmas for yourself too? You deserve a treat for starting ahead and staying on track! With all the great Christmas promos Singapore has, there is bound to be something good you can get at a discount.


💝 Christmas Gifts Inspiration

Stuck in a rut as you run out of gift ideas for your loved ones? We feel you. Christmas shopping need not be stressful if you put in a bit of effort to prepare in advance. Of course, some people prefer to ask the receiver whether they have anything they want, rather than risk buying them things they don’t need. Whether you take the practical route or not, the abundance of Christmas promos Singapore has will surely help you to spend less than you ought to!

Big online sites like Lazada, Zalora and ASOS will almost definitely have some form of Christmas sales going on. Looking for stocking stuffers? Sephora often have Christmas deals and small, travel-size items that are perfect if you are putting together a mixture of items as a present. Or if you need to buy small presents for a group of people. For your significant other or for parents, check out Reebonz’s Christmas discounts to find your ideal gift as you celebrate the jolly occasion. Want to get a new cook book for a friend who’s an avid baker? Try finding one at Kinokuniya’s website. The website has the entire glossary to make your search easier, and with the current Christmas promos, you can get it at a good price too.

If you’re looking for gifts out of the norm, try buying a gift card from BonAppetour or Vaniday instead. These are gifts of experience, for people who need pampering, or would prefer to gain experiences rather than tangible items. With the amazing Christmas promos Singapore websites have, you may even want to consider pampering yourself with a good facial and spa on the Vaniday’s platform in the midst of the Christmas parties’ buzz. It will make a great gift option for a couple retreat, or a mother-daughter bonding time. Don’t miss out on the deals and promos you can use when you make your reservation! 

Restaurants and F&B websites will also have their fair share of promotions, so if you’re eating out or having a potluck at home, take a look at the F&B promos before you decided on where to feast.

If you’re planning to travel during Christmas season, there may be some travel deals to look out for as well. Keep a keen eye on the flights and travel-related promos we feature here so that you can maximise your travel budget.

🎅🏻 Stay in the know!

Don’t miss out on the Christmas promos that run through this festive season! There will be a flurry of excitement and hype, and you may find yourself slightly overwhelmed to keep up. Fret not, let Cardable give you a helping hand with all the ongoing promotions so that you can focus on checking off your list of to-buys. Bookmark this page to keep up with the latest, most current deals and discounts, and check back just before you make a purchase so that you don’t miss out on promo codes you can use.

Bear in mind that some credit cards will also give you additional promotions, or even freebies with purchases! As always, Cardable will strive to update you on the latest Christmas promos Singapore has.

Remember to treat yourself as well while you’re shopping for others. After all, we all deserve some self-pampering too. Above all, it’s the season of giving, but it’s also the time to spend quality time with your loved ones. Don’t sweat too much over the small stuff and treasure the moments together instead!

If you do most of your shopping online, using a credit card that can maximise your purchases will help you get cashback, earn miles, or even get special discounts on some brands. Find out more at Best Online Shopping Credit Cards in Singapore.

Happy Shopping and Merry Christmas. Cheers! ❤️
