Unusual Christmas trees add a dash of art, and festive creativity, to year-end 2021.

So … I was struggling over what to write for my annual “second” Christmas post, outside of Gardens by the Bay and Jewel Changi, when this occurred to me.

Why not do a photo listing of some of the more creative and unusual Christmas trees in Singapore this festive season? With these, interestingly, aplenty this year?

Yup. While Orchard Road is going the golden romantic route this year, a number of malls and commercial establishments are opting for avant-garde displays that are hardly your usual fir and baubles. All are still quite recognisable as far as their celebratory purposes are concerned, but it’s undeniable each adds a dash of imagination to otherwise repetitive annual decorations.

Without further ado, here are the pictures I’ve taken so far! As I’ve yet to venture all over Singapore in search of such trees, I will be updating this post progressively till Christmas Day.

New Age, Creative Christmas Trees Aplenty in Singapore

Great World City

Great World City Christmas 2021
As like previous years, a tall tree occupies centerstage at Great World City. Geometric and curiously mesmerising with its symmetry, it makes for great photography no matter where you’re looking at it from.

Marina Bay Sands

Marina Bay Sands Christmas Tree 2021
MBS’ concept this year is that of glamourous travel. I think the sensuous colour choices and skilful lighting well befits this theme.
The Shoppes at Marina Bay Sands Christmas Decorations 2021
An alternate version over at the shopping atrium.

Callout: Check out the year-end light projections around MBS too!

Marina Square

Dive into the Season of Gifting (Marina Square)
Okay, this isn’t a great shot, but I’m sure you can still see how the Christmas tree for this sea-themed celebration resembles fish scales. (Which sounds kinda gross in writing, but is a different business when seen)

Capitol Singapore

Creative Christmas Trees in Singapore 2021
This simple yet elegant tree at Capitol Singapore is a personal favourite of mine! Imagine if you can buy something similar at say, Ikea. Makes “decorating the tree” a matter of pressing a switch.

Raffles City

Love, Be@rbrick at Raffles City
A huge Be@rBrick with a Christmas tree that’s also, erm, Eiffel Tower? Tokyo Tower? Definitely a distinctive pop art approach here! (And in line with the modern art displays at Raffles City in recent years)

Mandarin Gallery

Mandarin Gallery Xmas Tree 2021
Mandarin Gallery didn’t put up any large ornaments this year. But they do still have these futuristic trees all over their main entrance. They remind me of those in children’s pop-up books too.

Ion Orchard

Ion Orchard Christmas 2021
The highly I’ve already shown this pic in my earlier festive post. The Chanel “Tree” outside Ion Orchard is the least tree-like structure on this list. But it’s still clear what the inspiration is, yes?

Plaza Singapura

Nintendo Switch Christmas Tree.
A Nintendo Switch Christmas tree! Your magical year-end portal to a thousand worlds. (Hyrule being just one!)

Flower Dome, Gardens by the Bay

Unusual Christmas Tree in Singapore
A tree constructed entirely from beer bottles. Given the Nordic theme for this year’s Poinsettia Wishes, are those Heineken and Carlsberg bottles? Is there also a message about reusability here?


VivoCity Christmas Tree 2021
Vivocity’s Christmas trees have always favoured traditional motifs, but their immense sizes and ornament intricacies still delight. Under the evening sky, they are almost especially magical.
