We love heading to Tanglin Mall thanks to the boutique brands, good quality toy shops, great cafes, places to get hair and nails done plus all the gourmet food stores! Here are five reasons we are shopping here this festive season
Some days you just want to potter around shops that you don’t usually find on the high street, pick up a special gift or some unusual home decor, kit the kids out (or yourself!) with new clothes then treat the fam to lunch – all in one place. Tanglin Mall ticks all these boxes and more! Thinking of a weekend destination or prepping for your upcoming parties, then why not bring the family here so you can take a selfie at the magnificent 10 metre Christmas Tree outside and admire the Orchard Christmas lights? Keep scrolling for all the reasons we love Tanglin Mall.
1. Quintessential picks
One of the main reasons a shopping trip to Tanglin Mall is always a hit? The unique retailers, quirky brands, and different products you’ll find. Some of our favourite stores include Badger & Fox (#02-43) – a curated collection of different brands – you’ll find a gorgeous gift, artisanal jewellery, home decor and more here. Australian FireFly (#02-24/25) for kaftans and dresses for women and kids, Ocean Paradise (#03-18) for some of the world’s most sought-after ladies’ and kids’ swimwear brands, and White Ginger (#03-04) for a gift (candles and accessories). Then there’s Hanna Lee (#02-01), jewellery that has a designer look but a price tag that won’t break the bank, Shopping at Tiffany’s (#02-03) for multi-label luxury resort wear and maxi dresses, and Simone Irani (#02-28) for stunningly colourful flowy dresses that will have everyone asking “Where did you get that from?”.

The Mother & Child Centre (#03-11) specialises in prenatal classes and breastfeeding consultations but they also do yoga and massage for pregnant women and new mums too.
4. Gourmet food shopping
