OUR CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE 2017 – FOR MOMS AND DADS
Christmas 2017 isn’t far off now, can you believe it!? If like us you still have to start or finish off your Christmas shopping, here are a few ideas :
From the Burgundy Collection (Stellenbosch)
THE LADY HANDBAG
Retails for R1900.00 and perfect I think for the woman or man on the go as it both stylish and functional. Comes in both brown and tan leather.
THE CLIP WALLET
Retails for R500.00 we live in a world that’s all plastic and a few notes. I love that the cards are easy to access with this wallet without revealing to the public the value of the notes I’m carrying. Available in tan or brown leather.
SATIN LACE-UP SANDALS
From time to time as parents, we need to show ourselves some love. If you’re feeling like you want to spoil these look amazing. With your go-to black dress and then meet hubby for drinks while the kids are over the grandparents for the night. Retail for R599.00 from Woolies.
BLOCK SWIM SHORTS
Hosting the “dad-bod” that’s still kinda in at the moment, I’d stay away from the speedo briefs and grab one of these bright coloured swim shorts from Woolies. These are stylish and comfortable and versatile, you don’t have to use them exclusively for swimming! Retails for R250.00.
Viktor & Rolf have a new fragrance in a stunning bottle. I only buy perfume if I know the person, that’s because I believe it’s quite a personal taste. I’m difficult to buy cologne for, even hubby asks me to come with if he’s in the mood to spoil me with cologne. The V&R bottle retails from R1107.00 and the BVLGARI retails from R1060.00 at Red Square.
Sometimes you also need to chill with a glass of wine or whatever is your poison, and a book. The first two are in the Exclusive Books Top 5 Bestsellers and retail from R260+ and J’Something’s recently released cooking book retails from just over R300. Awesome way to switch off during the holidays.
For Christmas and Birthdays, I firmly believe that the presents should not be for the home but rather more personal and only for the person whom you’re buying the gift for.
Please stay away from the Soap-on-Rope, Socks(even the funky funny ones) and Underwear. I know we need them, but surely these can be bought any other time …. like when you’re doing groceries.
