Christmas shopping isn’t just about checking off the items on everyone’s wish list one by one whilst you’re in a frenzied rush — you’re allowed to have some fun with it too. If you find yourself overtly frazzled over the idea of getting your shopping done, you may want to follow these tips to make it breezier for you this year.
With this Christmas survival guide, you’ll be able to stick to your budget, bag a couple of unique, bespoke gifts for your loved ones with relative ease, and also find time for your own leisure; perusing through festive Christmas markets and partaking in engaging workshops. Best part? These stress-free solutions all lie in one place — Millenia Walk. Fun-filled Christmas shopping, here we come.
1. Shop for one-of-a-kind bespoke gifts for your loved ones - they'll appreciate it on the double
A bespoke gift which stands out will surely charm your loved ones — even the pickier ones who are slightly trickier to shop for. Millenia Walk has tonnes of artisanal, crafty tenants for your culling.
Fancy gifting the gift of nature for those with green fingers? Look to Love In A Bottle for beautifully made terrariums; they’ve got a wide selection of mini gardens stored in contemporary glass boxes. Flower Matters also has a bevy of floral bouquets made with exotic flowers from the world over.
For the design maverick in your life, you’ll find the perfect gift for them amidst creative homeware and crafty stationery at Naiise, as well as high quality artisanal furniture at Commune.
For clean-cut, contemporary designs, there’s Vitra and Grafunkt serving up modern furnitures which are a craft above the rest. You’ll also find cute, quirky desktop items perfect for gifting at Grafunkt — from table organisers and colourful pen holders to painterly ceramic clocks.
Tis’ the season to pamper your beau. And what would he love more than a good, investment timepiece for some serious #armcandygoals? The answer: nothing. Take your pick for quality timepieces at Red Army Watches or GNOMON Watches — where you’ll get a fine curation of tactical watches for the special man in your life.
If you’re stressing out over what to get for that BFF of yours who’s all for eco-friendly, conscious gifts, you can trust that Millenia Walk has got you sorted. The Naturally Better Company offers some of the world’s leading eco-luxury brands the likes of Tata Harper and RMS Beauty. From eco-friendly, au naturel beauty and skincare products to lingerie, perfume and even homeware — there’s something for every modern eco-activist.
If you’re looking for fine jewellery (diamonds are a girl’s best friend, right?), you’ll be thrilled to know that you’d be able to get your pick from the crème de la crème of fine jewellery at The Jewellery Shop and Jace & Co..
Or, gift the gift of healthier glowing skin with the SK-II Boutique Spa. Treat someone you care about to a range of treatments at the hands of professional therapists. With a range of treatments to choose from — from oxygenated facials to facial massages, they’ll definitely feel pampered and rejuvenated for the holidays.
And lastly, for the fitness enthusiast, gift them something they’ll be really grateful for; a gym membership at TripleFit — Singapore’s ultimate fitness and retail hub. TripleFit’s Retail Zone boasts the latest designs from performance apparel brands like C3fit, Every Second Counts, Newline, Odlo and Under Armour. It’ll be felicitous for it too, considering how most New Year’s resolutions revolve around getting fit. Trust us, they’ll have you on their mind, thanking you, the whole year round with this unique present.
2. Visit Christmas markets and unique workshops
A special Christmas market will be held at Millenia Walk’s Great Hall to usher in jolly spirits and bring the mall to live this holidays. Hosted by different organisations such as Free Folk, Togetherly and Mako Market, expect to cull from a bevy of bespoke crafts, artisanal wares and even food served up with a punch of festive flavours.
Interested in crafting a gift for a special someone by hand? Why not give weekend Christmas workshops a try? Show your loved ones how much you care by creating personalised gifts at Millenia Walk. Whether you're learning about the process of how chocolate is made with The Dark Gallery, decorating lovely Christmas cookies with Kith Cafe, or partaking in an engaging Aēsop Skincare Workshop with Grafunkt, you're sure to have a blast with such delightful activities.
3. Shop at a mall with special promotions and fun lucky draws
The only thing better than giving, is receiving. Whilst you’re out and about doing some Christmas shopping this year, snag for yourself a couple of freebies and cannot-be-missed promotions at Millenia Walk.
Starting from Dec 1 and leading up to Christmas, there will be special one-day only promotion for shoppers to enjoy. These offers will be publicised on Millenia Walk’s website and social media profiles, as well as updated on the mall’s campaign wall as gift tags and vouchers for shoppers to take and redeem at the participating tenants’ stores.
Millenia Walk will also be having exclusive spending promotions. With a spending of $50, you’ll walk away with complimentary parking and a limited edition gift wrap set. When you spend $300, Christmas will just be that much sweeter as you'll get to redeem a limited edition set of delectable chocolate bars from The Dark Gallery. Spend $800, and you'll be able to participate in Millenia Walk's special lucky draw game 'Wishing Well', where 8 lucky shoppers will stand to win covetable prizes such as the iPhone 8 Plus, Canon EOS M3 DSLM Camera, and travel vouchers worth up to $6,000.
