Take the sting out of your silly season with Skygate and DFO Brisbane’s festive offerings

As December 25 draws perilously close, we are becoming very aware of just how much has to be done to prepare for the big day. If you’re anything like us, the holidays come with mixed emotions – it’s pretty much a cocktail of pure joy, excitement, stress and anxiety garnished with a serious flexing of time-management skills. While we can’t really solicit advice on how to avoid your great uncle’s annoying questions at Christmas lunch, we can provide help in other areas to take some of the sting out of the season. DFO Brisbane and Skygate have your silly season covered – from the shopping to the food and even the entertainment, this is shaping up to be one easy breezy Christmas.


One of the biggest stresses surrounding Christmas is the time and money factor, which is more than taken care of at Skygate and DFO Brisbane. You guys went a little bit nuts when we announced that the precinct was adopting late-night trading hours on Thursdays for the Christmas period, but the perks don’t stop there. The home of designer discount shopping is throwing even more bargains on the table for the DFO Big Brand Sale from December 7–10, with the likes of 40% off Bonds storewide, a further 30% off all footwear at Nike Factory, Review doing $99 dresses, plus cost price plus $1 on TVs at Videopro. Joining the 50% off deals club are Puma, Lindt, Jeanswest, Fossil and Levi’s. This is just the tip of the savings iceberg – you can see what else is on offer right here. Each of these fab deals comes with terms and conditions, so be sure to hit the stores up individually if you have any questions.

As well as a swag of serious savings, Skygate and DFO Brisbane are doing a bunch of other things to make your Christmas season as painless and chill as possible. Forget paying for Santa photos this year – Skygate will be hosting free photo sessions with the man himself on Thursdays and Sundays, where you will receive a special print-out of your photo plus a digital copy to share on your socials. As usual, you can shop up a storm knowing that the food offering is top-notch – fuel up at one of Skygate’s awesome dining options, because shopping while hangry is a risk you should never take.
