Don't want to eat out on Christmas Day but can't face cooking either? Check out these fully-catered Christmas dinners that can be delivered to your doorstep, all without lifting a finger (except the one clicking 'Buy Now')...
It’s fast becoming the most wonderful time of the year here in Singapore: Christmas 2023! And, as much as we love heading out to a festive brunch with the family, there’s something to be said about a quiet dinner at home with your loved ones. The only downside to staying at home for your Christmas dinner? Having to cook. And after all the excitement (and bickering) that comes with unwrapping presents, we’re always emotionally exhausted. The last thing we want to do is prepare a family feast! So our top tip? Try a Christmas catering company (hello, islandwide delivery) or a takeaway dinner instead!
While we have the utmost R.E.S.P.E.C.T for anyone who cooks Christmas lunch at home, sometimes the mere thought of slaving in the kitchen in this heat brings us out in a sweat. Sound like you? Then you’ll definitely want to know about the delivery, takeaway and Christmas catering options for a festive dinner at home. And if all else fails? Make a note of these delivery apps, too!
