One Raffles Place – A Joyous Christmas 2020
You may deem One Raffles Place as just the glitzy office tower frequented by CBD-dwellers, but the shopping centre is actually a hidden gem with lots of shopping, dining and pampering options.
Taking place from now till 30th December 2020, “A Joyous Christmas” is their way of ending the year off on a high, with voucher giveaways and discounts across tenants of each category, from dining to wellness. Shops offering vouchers and gift cards also remove the stress of finding the perfect gift for your loved ones this festive season.
Read till the end to find out how you can snag a $5 voucher from One Raffles Place every day throughout the campaign period, which you can use at participating shops mall-wide including hotpot meals, massages and mani-pedis, and loads more in-between.
Discounts & gift vouchers for beauty treatments, facials & massages
After the roller coaster 2020 put us through, we’d all benefit from a makeover so we can step into the new year looking and feeling fresh. With over 15 beauty and wellness centres under one roof, you can walk into One Raffles Place looking a hot mess and strut out with your hair, nails and facial all done – plus a full-body massage to say bye-bye to all your body aches.
Here are some beauty services where you can get treatments for yourself, or as gift vouchers for your loved ones to give them that much-needed festive pampering session.
Especially with all the hand sanitising drying out the skin, our hands have undoubtedly seen better days. Give your digits some much-needed TLC at Ames Beauty (#05-04), a nail salon offering manicure gift vouchers this Christmas period. The vouchers can be in any denomination you wish to pay for.
Their extensive range of nail art designs have something for every taste, from cute Tsum Tsum characters to classy marble waves. They’ll serve as great conversation starters if you happen to be attending any Christmas gatherings or festive potlucks!
Iconic Hair (#03-19) is a true-blue Korean hair salon with gift vouchers available for purchase, so you can treat your bae to a K-pop idol-worthy perm and dye. The gift vouchers are available in denominations of $20 and $50.
They also have a discounted 3-step hair treatment ($99 for all hair lengths, U.P. $250) which restores moisture and shine to your crowning glory using Milbon products – a premium brand used by thousands of salons worldwide. Rocking envy-worthy locks will make all the difference to your overall appearance, just in time for year-end outings.
A perfect gift for your mum, bestie, or workplace Secret Santee who’s been toiling throughout the year is a voucher for Amber Beila (#05-19A), which can be used for a top-to-toe pampering sesh. The vouchers are available in denominations of $100.
They offer massages and facials to suit various needs, from slimming to aromatherapy. The vouchers can also be used on nail treatments, including gel polishes or a foot scrub.
Flutters (#04-21) specialises in eyelash extensions, where you can choose from subtle wispy strands for a natural and demure look, or voluminous clusters for that va-va-voom factor.
Present their gift vouchers, available in denominations of $10, to the ladies in your life to help them ditch the mascara from their makeup arsenal, shaving precious minutes off their beauty routine.
Gift cards & shopping vouchers for international cuisine & alcohol
Ask any of the CBD workers where to go for some filling and tasty nosh, and they’d likely point you to the direction of One Raffles Place, home to no less than 40 F&B establishments. From famous Thai milk tea ChaTraMue to hearty salads and acai bowls from Haakon, you can satisfy anything from a quick snack and BBT craving to an all-out feast.
With payments increasingly going the cashless route, get your homies a Food Junction card for $9 (U.P. $10), loaded with $7 value so they can have many more wallet-friendly meals to come. The reloadable card also grants you 10% discount on regular priced items at Food Junction, building up to hefty savings over time.
Food Junction (#05-07) is a reliable go-to when it comes to quelling your hunger pangs at the most affordable price. It’s also ideal for meals with the squad, ‘cause you won’t be squabbling over which cuisine to settle for. The stalls here offer dim sum, mala hotpot, Korean bibimbap and nasi padang, among others.
If you’re hosting a little end-of-year shindig or thinking of what to contribute to a Christmas potluck, head to Bottles & Bottles (#01-13) for their friendly staff to recommend you the perfect…well, bottle. Their magnificent shelves stock tipple from across the globe, including red wine, champagne, rosé, whisky and gin.
You’ll be spoilt for choice, so opt for the gift certificates, available in denominations of $10 and $50, if you’re not 100% certain which bottle to get your loved one.
Shopping vouchers & free parking when you visit One Raffles Place
As part of A Joyous Christmas, there’ll be a Spend & Redeem promo where shoppers get a $5 One Raffles Place voucher after spending a minimum of $50. Up to two receipts can be combined, and each shopper is entitled to one redemption per day. Plenty of reason for you to make repeat trips!
If you need more gift inspo or are organising house parties, stock up on festive treats from the Christmas Market which will take place throughout the 19th November – 30th December period.
Located at B1 of One Raffles Place, the Christmas Market will feature festive treats that are perfect for gifting. There’ll be new vendors switching things up periodically, so swing by often to see what’s different.
Top tip: Get the One Raffles Place app which is free to download on the App Store as well as Google Play. Log your expenditure and clock a minimum daily spend to redeem vouchers. You can also get free parking with a minimum spend of just ten bucks.
The free parking perk is great for driving folk, but the rest will be pleased to know that One Raffles Place is a stone’s throw away from Raffles Place MRT. And if you’re gonna be gift-hunting and settling your end-of-year pampering sessions, you might as well be earning points and redeeming rewards while you’re at it.
