Ahhh Christmas! A time to gather together and fill your hearts along with your bellies – although the latter is not always an easy feat without emptying the bank balance in the process. Besides, once you’ve gotten through Santa’s ‘Nice List’, decorated the tree and plotted your last elf on the shelf adventure, you might find yourself wondering where all the time and money has gone.
We can’t work miracles (we’ll leave those to Saint Nick), but we can work magic – think of Home Club as your digital tree fairy that sprinkled our fairy dust across the four corners of Dubai, finding five of the most delicious feasts to grace homes in the UAE for under 500AED. That means less washing up, more festive films and all the trimmings you usually forget.
