Christmas is a time for gift-giving, spreading festive cheer, drinking and, obviously, eating! Being in Singapore, of course one of the highlights of our holiday season is the tasty array of yuletide yums on offer, especially come Christmas Day. Last week we covered our top spots for dining out in the Little Red Dot over Chrissy. But if you’re more of a homebody and keen to enjoy the annual festive food-extravaganza with friends and family at home (where you won’t be judged for un-buttoning your jeans after a second helping of turkey), then you’ll want to sneak a peek at these handy Singapore vendors who will make your Christmas dinner at home, a whole lot easier. We’re taking a load off your shoulders this year, so can rest and relax with a glass of bubbly in hand… aren’t we thoughtful!

From defrosted turkeys and smoked hams to rolled pork loins, stuffing and more, these meat experts will help take the stress out of prepping for Christmas lunch by delivering direct to your door. Phew! All that time saved can be used to look fabulous instead.
