Christmas at Ion Orchard!

Christmas is my faveee season of the year! I absolutely love all the Christmas decors, light ups and festive melodies. To mark the festivities, Ion has some special activities going on! Like Christmas trees specially designed by key brands at ION Orchard; customised gift wrapping paper jointly designed by special needs students; and the mall’s outdoor space, ION² will be transformed into a glittering Christmas Garden.

If you’ve already visited Ion Orchard, you would have already noticed 12 beautifully decorated Christmas trees at the center of Level 1. It’s pretty eye-catching so you definitely wouldn’t miss it!

In a unique collaboration, 12 brands at ION Orchard will each offer its interpretation of Christmas with a specially designed exquisite 2.4-metre-tall Christmas tree. They are Alice + Olivia, Braun Büffel, Buben & Zorweg, Cortina Watch, Crate & Barrel, Diane Von Furstenberg, Ermenegildo Zegna, Kurt Geiger, Kwanpen, Moncler, Parfums Christian Dior and TWG Tea.

The trees will be central to the mall’s fund-raising activities for Christmas, inspiring ION Orchard VIP members and loyal shoppers to open up their hearts and put in bids to adopt the tree or trees of their choice by using the iPad next to each tree. Bids start at S$8,000, with the highest bidder getting adoption and naming rights for each tree of their choice plus a token of appreciation from the respective brands and ION Orchard. Shoppers can also make direct donations at several donation points near concierge counters at Basement 3 and, Levels 1 and 4.

Funds raised will go towards helping the Rainbow Centre Yishun Park School, under the care of Community Chest. Some 350 students will benefit from the funds raised. As part of the Care & Share Movement led by Community Chest, donations received will be matched dollar-for-dollar by the Government.

Alice+Oliver’s tree is one of my faves.

Dior’s tree is definitely one of the most creative trees which is made up of mini bottles of their J’adore parfum.

You also have to check out Ion’s gift wrapping papers this year which is jointly designed by ION Orchard and four students from the Community Chest-supported Rainbow Centre Yishun Park School, which caters to students with special needs. The wrapper, which features festive icons such as the reindeer, snowman, gingerbread boy and Christmas stockings, are the students’ interpretation of Christmas and will be used for the mall’s gift wrapping service. The mall’s Christmas wrappers are available to shoppers who spend $100 and above.

You would also not miss this huge dazzling 20-metre-tall Swarovski Christmas tree which is adorned with more than 28,000 stunning clear crystals! (It’s super pretty and lights up really nicely at night)

Visitors who step into the walk-in tree will be captivated by a rotating chandelier with crystals, mirrored ceilings and a kaleidoscope of lights that transforms the space into an infinity room for a gloriously magical experience.

From 6 November 2015 to 3 January 2016, ION Orchard is sweetening its Christmas deals with a series of festive promotions to spread the Yuletide cheer and give back to its shoppers. Spend $250 at basement floor shops and redeem a $15 voucher, while $500 spent at both basement floor and upper floor shops will entitle shoppers to a $30 voucher.
