December is my favourite time of the year for few reasons. One thing is that December is the perfect month for shopping due to the celebrations such as Christmas and New Year. On the other way, December is the perfect month for holidays to relax the tired body and soul!
So, if you are also like me who likes to shop during the December, don’t miss the sale events and deals happening in this holiday season. If you still haven’t done your Christmas shopping and buying gifts for friends and family; then use this opportunity to grab some deals and offers!
To help you to ease your online shopping experience, here are some events and deals that are happening during this month. I am sure you can’t miss these online deals!
1. Singapore 12.12 Sale events
After the Black Friday and Cyber Monday, the biggest shopping event that is happening in Singapore is the popular 12.12 Sale event. So, don’t forget to mark your calendar with December 12 and get ready to shop your holiday gifts, back to school items and any other thing ranging from fashion, health and your holiday essentials while the sale event is happening.

Reasons are simple; you can find the best deals and offers from most of the top merchants including fashion, health, travel and many more. It can be booking the hotel rooms for the next vacation or buying your favourite fashion items.

2. Mixbook December deals and offers
As you know, I always prepare photo books for special family events. Other than Birthday albums I make a ‘Year in Review’ photo album at the end of each year. This is a great way to create memories. As my favourite photo book company, I always use Mixbook to order our photo books online. Good thing is that, during December, MixBook offers lot of discounts and deals which you can use for ordering photo books at a really lower price.
So, don’t forget to make your ‘Year in Review’ photo book using Mixbook. Order with a coupon code which you can save up to 50%! I also use this site to order holiday greeting cards for a really low rate.
3. Other Seasonal deals
While 12.12 event and Mixbook deals are my favourites, I use all other deals and discount opportunities to save more while shopping online. December is the time of the year to find many holiday offers. As almost all online shops offer seasonal discounts during December, use this opportunity to shop your favourite products for the next year. Whatever the product you want to shop online during the month of December, search for a sale event or discount code, so you can save money easily.
How to make most of these offers and sales events?
To save more from these sales events, shop almost all your Christmas gifts and holiday necessities during the events happening. To not to miss anything, prepare a list of items that you need to buy. You can also include the back to school items and staycations to save more while shopping for gifts. These tricks on saving big on Black Friday and Cyber Monday are still valid for saving from other December deals.
