It’s the time of year when we are reminded that giving can be a far greater gift than receiving, this rings particularly true this Festive season at Rosebank Mall.
Disney Charity Trees
This year a giant Christmas tree takes pride of place in the Lacoste Court, adjacent to Nedbank. But this is no ordinary Christmas tree, this one is decorated with Disney-themed plush toys (very kindly sponsored by Nedbank) and oversized polaroid photos. Right up until Christmas Eve, each toy can be purchased for any one of the recipients whose photos decorate the tree as part of a CSI initiative between Rosebank Mall, Nedbank and Smile Foundation. All donations from the tree will also go to Smile Foundation and all the plush toys will be gifted to the recipients on Christmas Eve.
Of course, memories are priceless too, so visitors are encouraged to take a photo at the Disney Charity Tree to post on Instagram and tag Rosebank Mall’s Instagram page using the hashtags #RosebankMall and #LiveAndLoveLocal before Wednesday, 15 December, to stand a chance of winning a great Disney Hamper which includes a R1000 gift card from Rosebank Mall.
Tired of trying to take family photos which end up with half the family’s eyes shut, someone’s head being cut off and at least one silly face being pulled? We’ve all had these disasters! If you really want to make this a Christmas to remember, you can have a Festive family photo taken by a professional photographer in the photo lounge located on Level 2 next to the Disney tree (opposite Lacoste and Lindt). Festive Family Photos can be sent in digital format or printed to pop into a beautiful picture frame and admired for years to come.
Selfies more your thing? Until 24 December 2021, Rosebank Mall’s new selfie concept store InstaNation has opened on Level 4. InstaNation also will be setting up a mini-selfie installation on Level 2 opposite Mugg & Bean.
Now That’s a Wrap!
Rosebank Mall is all about making Christmas stress-free too, so in partnership with Hyprop Foundation, gift wrapping stations will be located on Level 2 next to CNA and Level 3 next to PNA until Christmas Eve. All proceeds collected will be donated to the SPCA.
We’re Making it Personal
That personal touch can make a relatively inexpensive or ordinary gift wonderfully meaningful. Rosebank Mall has partnered with student graphic designers to personalise any item or gift bought at any store within Rosebank Mall at a 50% discount… and if that gift happens to be a Disney item, they will personalise that item for free! (Note: Items must be bought at Rosebank Mall between 25 November and 24 December 2021).
VR In Real Life!
Tech experience agency, Thought Dot Africa, are currently showcasing a new approach to education in the Town Hall space at SOKO District on Level 2 until Friday, 31 December 2021. Visit them for unique experiences that are fun for the whole family including:
• Coding for kids

All that’s left to say is…. Jingle all the way to Rosebank Mall for a Festive Season of family fun that gives you all the feels too!
