Dress up your home with these fuss-free Christmas decorations
Since you’ll only be bringing the Christmas decor out once a year, you may not be inclined to splurge on extravagant, expensive pieces of decor. That’s perfectly fine, because FairPrice Xtra has different types of decor for every budget.
The Christmas Tree Bundle Set (in Red/Gold and Blue/Silver versions)
Take these trees, for instance. They don’t just vary in price – they vary in size, too! For a simpler and affordable (but no less festive) option,the Christmas Tree Bundle Set (from $39.90) comes in 3 different sizes (90cm/150cm/180cm in height) and also includes a set of decorations and ornaments.
Alternatively, those who want a more lifelike tree can consider either the Boston Mixed Pine Tree (from $149) or the Snow Pine Tree with Cones (from $139). Starting from heights of 150cm, these faux trees look just like their live counterparts, and will put you in the holiday mood almost instantly.
You can also inject some festivity into your space by getting some Christmas-themed cushions ($6). With tons of different designs to choose from, it’s the easiest way to dress up your sofa or favourite chair!
Plus, with Chinese New Year just around the corner, you can simply unzip these cushion coverings and replace them with a CNY-appropriate cushion covering. Easy peasy!
Have a mix of classy Christmas-themed tableware
They may not seem like much, but little things like your tableware add finishing touches to complete the celebratory, festive vibes at home. If you haven’t purchased Christmas-themed tableware, here are some convenient options for you.
Cleaning up your house after a day of partying can be overwhelming. With the disposable runner, napkins and tablecloths from Duni Party Ware (from $10.90), you can free up more of your time to spend with your loved ones!
Christmas gatherings just don’t feel complete without some festive bubbles and sips. If you’re looking to change out your old and fragile wine glasses, the breakage-resistant Spiegelau Glassware may just be the thing you need.
For those who love a good glass of wine, get their elegant Festival collection ($39.90), which has pieces like white wine, champagne, flute, and Bordeaux glasses. The sophisticated Perfect Serve collection (from $21.90) is best for those who fancy mixed cocktails or beverages on ice.
Lay out a sumptuous Christmas feast
Let’s face it – Christmas gatherings are nothing without glorious Christmas food. If you’ve been too busy to prepare, no worries – simply pop by any FairPrice Xtra outlet to pick up a platter from their Cash and Carry delicatessens!
Our recommendations? The classic Traditional Roast Turkey ($49.95), which serves up to 6 people. For bigger gatherings, get the Honey Duet ($37), consisting of honey glazed pork ribs and baked ham, or the Free Range Sausage Platter ($31.90) with a variety of different sausage types!
To impress your guest, serve up your meat and cheese in style, on a wooden serving board like this antibacterial Tramontina Cutting and Serving Board ($29.90)! Alternatively, the Tramontina Carving Set ($28.90) comes with a chef knife and carving fork that will allow you to cut into your meat with ease.
If you need something to keep your food warm, this nifty K-Grill Infrared Grill Model: KG3381G ($199) may come in handy. Don’t worry about smoke billowing about, as it’s smokeless and is perfect for indoor use. The circular pan also drains excess oil, ensuring that your food doesn’t get too greasy (and ensuring guilt-free feasts).
Finally, end off your Christmas feast with your favourite festive desserts! The Wiltshire Rose Gold bakeware (from $8.70) is not just aesthetically-pleasing, but it’s also durable and sports a non-stick coating that guarantees easy clean-up.
Purchase last minute Christmas gifts
Gasp, you’ve forgotten to get some presents! Again, no fretting necessary, because FairPrice Xtra has also got your back when it comes to last minute Christmas gifts.
Whether the recipient’s a child or an adult, there’s no need to wreck your brain to find the right gift when you’ve got the Rolife DIY Music Box - For my dear/Christmas Town ($29.90). This delicate music box comes in numerous Christmas-themed designs, and can double up as an ornamental shelf display piece (while also keeping the kids occupied for hours).
Kids will also love the interactive Mini Blocks - Christmas tree/Christmas House ($29.90), which are puzzles to be assembled. Rest assured that they are made of non-toxic materials and rounded corners, ensuring that your kids remain safe while keeping them occupied.
