There are two kinds of people – those that do their Christmas shopping before we even hear Jingle Bells in the shopping malls come December, and those that wait until they’re on their way to the festive gathering before making a sho’t left and arriving with a screeching halt in front of their chosen store to scramble for a last-minute purchase.
Whichever group you find yourself in, we’ve taken the mystery out of it with these lovely ideas that would suit anyone’s Christmas stocking.
A fabulous voucher
You heard right! It is perfectly acceptable to give someone a voucher for Christmas, especially if it’s something that’s a real treat. Our top recommendations for this sunny festive season are:
A sexy plant
Plants are an aesthetic way of showing appreciation. They’re lovely to look at, good for the soul and liven up any space. There are all sorts of different indoor and outdoor plants to consider for your special someone, so take into consideration the type of home they have and what their personality is like. Some people are vigilant gardeners, while others – though they love plants – are best suited to the low-maintenance variety. Chat to your local nursery about the best options. Once you have your plant, include a beautiful plater to go with it so that it matches the space perfectly. Check out Plantr for something unique and truly special.
A Peppy Potjie Pot
If you’re looking for something a little different for the foodie, a potjie pot is the gift that keeps on giving. Potjie pots offer endless culinary possibilities, and potjie stews are a fantastic opportunity to gather friends and family. Although traditionally used outside on the braai, a flat potjie pot can also be used on the gas or electric stove top, so buy with your cook in mind. Need options? Check out these colourful, enamel potjie pots from Braaitness, or visit Takealot if you’re looking for cast iron pots. Just think about all those delicious stews you’ll get to enjoy in thanks for your awesome gift!
We hope you find what you’re looking for! Whatever you choose, if it’s done with a little thought and care, your dear ones will love it!
