It’s that time of the year again, and we’ve got all the deets on where you can get holiday wrapping paper and Christmas cards in Singapore. Some places even offer customised designs!
Christmas cards are an important part of the Yuletide season. Let your friends and family know you’re thinking of them by picking up gorgeous Christmas cards in Singapore from these lovely brands (we especially love the Singapore-themed Christmas cards). If you fancy a personalised e-card or creating your own DIY Christmas cards – we have all the intel! Many stores that sell Christmas cards in Singapore also carry festive Christmas wrapping paper too so you get two jobs done in one go (just remember to buy separate Christmas wrapping paper from ‘Santa’). Anyone else like coordinating their wrapping paper so the presents look cute under the Christmas tree?

There’s nothing quite like receiving a beautiful card in the mail just in time for the holidays. Having your Christmas cards on display on the mantelpiece is for some, a real part of the festive decor and will give you the warm fuzzies when you look around your home. This year, create your own personalised Christmas cards at Simply Say. Choose from more than 400 new greeting card designs (they even have unique Singapore-inspired cards featuring fun Singlish terms). You can personalise your own card by adding a photo, perhaps one with the kids, new baby, the dog or just a quirky one with the whole fam bam. There’s also the option to add a personalised thoughtful message inside each card and Simply Says can mail the card directly. Alternatively, leave the Christmas card blank and fill it out yourself just before sending it (an additional envelope is enclosed for self-delivery). If your goal is to be a little more eco-friendly, then fret not, because all of Simply Say’s Christmas cards are 100% recyclable and are only printed to order. Cards are available in either A4 or A5 sizes. If you order before 12pm, your Christmas cards can be delivered in Singapore the next day.
