Get that Christmas gift list all ticked off at one of these fabulously festive fairs, markets and bazaars popping up in Singapore. The kids will love soaking up the Chrimbo atmosphere!
Christmas is the season of giving, and we never need much persuasion to go on a bit of a shopping splurge (we see it as doing our bit for the economy, and we’re sticking with that
excuse reason, should the husband ask). And when it comes to Christmas markets, pop-ups and festive fairs? That’s when we really do a happy jig – bells and baubles included! Luckily, there are plenty of Christmas markets happening all around Singapore this year (despite the pandemic). From charitable causes to European-style Xmas markets we don’t have to jet overseas for, there’s a festive fair for all when it comes to Christmas shopping on the Little Red Dot…
