‘Tis the season of giving! And the perfect gift for your loved one could literally be written in the stars. We’ve scanned the skies to bring you our top picks for each zodiac sign.
Aquarius (20 Jan - 18 Feb)
Temperamental at times,
aloof at others
Feed the Aquarius’ love for knowledge with a good read. Kinokuniya at Bugis Junction has a good selection of literary gems, and the mall’s Christmas Enchanted promotions mean you score a bonus 5,888 STAR$ with a minimum spend of just S$100 (instead of the usual S$120) when you shop at any store on Level 3 (where Kinokuniya is located) and above, or with your American Express® CapitaCard.
Pisces (19 Feb - 20 Mar)
and artistic expression
Overly trusting, with a hint
of escapist tendencies
The best gift for the spiritual Piscean is one that harmonises mind, body and soul. Consider the limited edition Kiehl’s x Kate Moross collection, which will bring much relaxation and respite at the end of a long week. Pick up a gift set at Tampines Mall, redeem your groovy carrier box with S$160 spend, and bring your kids to hang out with AlviNNN and the Chipmunks!!!. All in a day’s work.
Aries (21 Mar - 19 Apr)
their own beat
a short fuse
The ‘Warrior’ archetype needs to feel that they are in control, so much so they are almost never disorganised. Help them along with a beautifully crafted leather-bound notebook embossed with their initials, from Bynd Artisan at Raffles City. And while shopping, you'd probably appreciate the mall's The Rhythm of the Season grand giveaway of a trip to Los Angeles! If you're wondering how the founders started the brand, take a look behind the scenes with us.
Taurus (20 Apr - 20 May)
The meeting of
form & function
What better gift than a pair of trusty, versatile, stylish jeans for the reliable Taurean friend. They can switch up their looks with different cuts and washes. For the dressy friend who loves her well-cut denim, go for the dark wash skinnies. And we all have that one friend who's perpetually in a band tee - pick the straight cut jeans. Check out the Levi's boutique at Bedok Mall; and because one is never enough, this 1-for-1 Christmas promotion is perfect because the truth is... we're also looking for gifts for ourselves!
Gemini (21 May - 20 Jun)
The best gift for a sociable Gemini friend is your time and undivided attention. Don't waste your effort shopping for a gift. Take our word and plan a nice evening out together, keeping in mind that they like new surroundings and experiences. Book a steamboat dinner at the new Da Miao Hot Pot in Clarke Quay and try the Sichuan Mala if you like your spices. Go in the evening and excite the Geminis with the traditional bianlian (mask changing) performance! Psst - there's a 10% discount if you make your reservation via Facebook, Wechat or Weibo. Otherwise, keep your options open and check out more dining deals this festive season!
Cancer (21 Jun - 22 Jul)
Cancers are the true sweethearts. As the most loyal and loving of the signs, they are also massive homebodies. Create that festive atmosphere for your best friend with a thoughtful gift from Yankee Candle at Junction 8. Be it a jar candle, fragrance sphere or reed diffuser set, there's surely something that will elevate the senses and embody the warmth of home. These alluring candles burn up to 150 hours and are made to last - just like your friendship.
Leo (23 Jul - 22 Aug)
Being at the
centre of attention
The passionate Leo isn't afraid to stand out, and always has a mind of their own. Put a bounce in their step with a pair of fashionable and comfortable sandals from FitFlop. The brand’s outlet at IMM has a sizeable collection. And for your effort, the mall will gift you a S$5 coffee voucher with a S$50 spend. IMM’s outdoor movie nights on 25 and 30 Dec also make a great way to round off the year.
Librans have a deep, innate need for beauty. They also have a soft spot for Mother Nature and a penchant for the great outdoors — in the gentler form of sunset dinners and boardwalk strolls. Add to their wardrobe with comfortable, coordinated summer pieces from Timberland at Bugis+, then pop by Bugis Junction to check out its enchanting Christmas Village and the treats within.
Scorpio (23 Oct - 21 Nov)
brave and meticulous
Taking charge in a
powerful, charismatic way
a jealous streak
Scorpios are nothing if not intense. They live to experience and express emotions, and that can take a toll on them. So, this Christmas, help the Scorpio in your life unwind with a pampering hair and nail session at Jean Yip Hub at Lot One. Bring the kids along to meet Dora the Explorer from 12 to 17 Dec! The mall is hosting a fun little tea party just for Dora's fans, along with other performances and hands-on workshops.
Sagittarius (22 Nov - 21 Dec)
Fun and spontaneous, Sagittarius personalities are usually the ones to own a furry friend (or more than one!). If you're shopping for a pet lover, make their day with something practical from Pet Lovers Centre, which stocks a wide range of fresh foods for them to pamper their pets. Alternatively, quality services like pet grooming are available; drop their pooch off with them at any of the 10 CapitaLand mall outlets, and catch up over high tea while waiting.
We've covered all 12 zodiacs, but here’s one more gift idea for you — the Giver: an INFINITI Q30 - Premium Active Compact!
From 17 Nov 2017 to 2 Mar 2018, CapitaStar members stand a chance to win a brand new car in the Wish Upon a Car draw. Every S$80 spent gets you one chance; double if you use your American Express® CapitaCard. It’s our way of saying Happy Holidays, 'cos givers deserve to receive too.
