The festive season is here and for the first time in two years, we can finally gather in large groups and celebrate the season proper.
As it is, my calendar is already packed with social gatherings and meetups with friends that I haven’t seen in ages.
And while I’m excited to catch up and welcome the new year together, my wallet is groaning at how much I’d have to spend taking food to potlucks and buying gifts.
Fortunately, I’ve found myself a budget-friendly solution for all my party needs with Giant’s one-stop hypermarket solution.
Whether it's gifts, food or even decor, Giant has everything you need for a party that won’t break the bank.
Gift exchange ideas
Not sure what to get your friend’s kid?
You can’t go wrong with this giant 100cm plush bear (S$20), which will make a lovely cuddly gift for a child, or your lonely friend.
Those on a budget can also check out the affordable range of household appliances from S$10, including this versatile MAG hand blender at S$10.
The Vinnfier Memento 2 TWS Earbuds (S$49.90, U.P S$59.90) will make the perfect gift for those long train rides spent bingeing the latest Netflix series.
Water-resistant and with an ultra-long playtime of seven hours (22 hours with battery case), you will never have to worry about running low on a charge.
Don’t forget the kiddos and the young at heart with The X-Shot Skins Last Stand (S$35, U.P. S$39), which allows one to unleash 14 foam darts in seconds.
Eat and drink your fill
At a very reasonable price of S$1, snack on these Meadows Truffle Potato Chips to your heart’s content.
This crowd favourite will be a hit at any party.
Follow up by washing it down with your drink of choice.
My pick is the M Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon for that touch of ✨class✨.
If alcohol isn’t your thing, a hearty sip of the Meadows Chocolate Malt Drink should do the trick.
Those with a sweet tooth will love this seasonal advent calendar from Cadbury.
It even comes with an adorable cutout door hanger to show Santa where he should leave those presents.
Host with the most
If it’s your turn to host this year, save time and still whip up a delicious spread for your guests with these Oliver’s Tempura Chicken Nuggets (S$3) and Seara Frozen Chicken Wings (S$7.55, U.P. S$8.90).
For a quick dessert, the Betty Crocker Fudge Brownie Mix (S$4, U.P. S$4.90) is a great go-to.
To get your guests into the festive mood, decorations play a big part.
With decor options priced at S$1, S$2 and S$5, you can go as crazy as you want.
Christmas celebrations just aren’t complete without a tree, so visit your nearest Giant Hypermarket to pick one from S$20.
First-ever Giant pasar malam
Besides great deals for the festive season, Giant will be hosting its first-ever Giant pasar malam from now till Dec. 4, 2022 at Giant Tampines Hypermarket carpark.
