At Expat Living, we love to decorate for the season and to entertain. It’s one of our favourite times of year, that’s for sure. It’s also a very busy time for school, activities and social gatherings. However, we have some good news for busy people: your turkeys, food hampers, party sets, entertaining essentials and decorations, Christmas trees and more can all be sourced online, via the yuu App – and you can get them delivered to your door. Plus, if you’re smart, your early bird organisational skills might just score you a discount!
Here are four Christmas essentials we’ll be ordering from from the yuu App this week:
#1 Festive Treats & Spirits
If you’re looking to eat, drink and be merry this holiday season, there’s loads to choose from. Whether it’s an advent calendar featuring Lindt teddy bears, traditional shortbreads by Walkers (we love the Christmas tree shapes!), or great gifts like cute Jules Destrooper boxes filled with beautiful treats, you’ll find something for everyone on the app.
You’re also covered for drinks, with line-up that includes classic Moët & Chandon Imperial Brut from France; Penfolds Bin 389 from Australia; and a gift pack of 12-year-aged Johnnie Walker from Scotland. Plus, enjoy 15 percent off all red, white and sparkling wines and champagnes when you buy six bottles via the yuu App.
#2 Christmas Hampers
Oliver’s Hampers offer a delicious range of Christmas goodies you can munch on all silly season. They also make for a lovely gift suitable for business or social gifting. There are four hampers to choose from, each offering good value, the ability to write a personal message and delivery to a home or office.
Cost: Christmas food and drink hampers are available to purchase until 29 December 2021, and range from $980 to $3,380. Order on the yuu App.
#3 Premium Party Sets
Catering at home just got a whole lot easier thanks to the deluxe party sets on the yuu App. These catering packs are delivered to your door; they arrive hot and ready to eat. So easy!
Cost: Party sets are available to purchase until 29 December 2021, with early bird booking discounts available. Sets range from $1,288 (6-8 servings) to $2,288 (12-14 servings). Order on the yuu App.
Christmas Turkey enthusiasts can pre-order cooked and frozen turkeys or Ali Oli Christmas Turkey Sets via the yuu App. The US Smoked Turkey is slow-smoked with hickory wood. It arrives cooked, so all you need to do is heat it up and serve.
For those with ovens, and the desire to do a “proper” roast this Christmas, order a frozen US Norbest or US Butterball Turkey.
Also, if you’d like to outsource the entire turkey dinner, simply pre-order an Ali Oli Christmas Turkey Set, with all the trimmings; it comes with free delivery and a selection of options. Sit back, relax and get festive, without having to worry about the roasting!
Cost: Pre-order to be eligible for early bird discounts. Frozen Turkeys start from $295 and US Smoked Turkeys from $686.40, whileAli Oli sets range from $2,068 to $4,490. Order on the yuu App.
Also … Christmas Trees!
Christmas just isn’t the same without a real Christmas tree. This year, you can pick up an imported tree direct from the USA; there’s a Noble Fir, with dense foliage and a strong scent, and a second option, Nordman Fir, offering a lighter scent.
Cost: Order before 10 December to get the early bird discounted price of $1,710 with free delivery. Order on the yuu App.

Once you’ve done that, you can just sit back and wait for all your goodies to be delivered to your door. Have a great Christmas!
