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 2022! 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 defo 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!
CHRISTMAS 2022 DELIVERY & TAKEAWAY OPTIONS IN SINGAPORE
1. Christmas at Home by Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford
Want a one-stop shop for your Christmas dining needs this year? Check out the festive Christmas at Home online store from Fairmont Singapore and Swissôtel The Stamford. There’s everything from the all-important Christmas roasts to irresistible sweets and side dishes galore. We even think we could swing the dreaded brussels sprouts with our reluctant kids, based on the delicious-looking buttered brussels here, mixed with bacon and glazed chestnuts – it wouldn’t be Christmas without those!
Tablescape‘s take on Christmas is a feast to remember, and then some. There are loads of options to cater for families big and small. We’ve been eyeing up the stuffed pork roulade, where pork belly is marinated with salt, pepper and rosemary before being rolled up and stuffed with risotto, parsley and duxelles. Don’t forget the sweet treats, which include a rum and raisin log cake, a chocolate cranberry charcuterie wreath platter, and chocolate cranberry Christmas bread. Good luck choosing! Psst, if you cannot decide, there are set menus that can feed up to four pax.

15. Goodwood Park Hotel
We love Goodwood Park Hotel for its festive vibe, but if you fancy a cosy family Christmas at home, then you can bring its scrumptious fare to your door. The only difficulty is what to pick! Keep it traditional, or mix it up with the local Christmas offerings like Chinese-style braised whole turkey with six braised eggs, peanuts, and homemade chilli sauce. Whatever you pick, it’s sure to be delicious.
Planning a festive feast may be daunting (trust us, we know). Fortunately, Swensen’s has got your back with three specially curated Christmas packages that’ll take the stress out of planning!

If you’re feeling up to it, you can also choose to build your own festive package, all with a minimum purchase of $188 in a single order.
17. ParkRoyal Collection Marina Bay
Although we love the dine-in festive buffet at ParkRoyal Collection Pickering, sometimes it’s nice not to get out of the PJs. So how about bringing the delicious feast home instead with a Christmas delivery or takeaway? Take your pick from the savoury gourmet roasts, delish deli items and dazzling sweet treats (hello, yule logs) from Portman’s Bar. The Festive Family Feast is an obvious go-to filled with glazed boneless ham, roasted French poulet, and a chocolate log cake!
