ULTIMATE CHRISTMAS GIFT GUIDE FOR 2019/2020

Black Friday may be long gone, but truth be told many of us haven't finished Christmas shopping yet. I mean, empty stockings and Christmas trees are a real struggle fam. We're also presented with so many options, that finding the right one can be difficult. 






Personally I'm becoming more of an experiences over things kind of person and what that usually translates to is making memories with someone (Or living them opportunities to make unforgettable memories themselves). Some ideas for "experiences" gifts could be a gift card or voucher to an adventure activity/spa experience or even restaurant

Hyperli is a super cool platform for this especially if you don't know exactly what you'd like to get them and want to take advantage of their massive discounts. It's similar to Groupon (Which is no longer available in SA) and features coupons/promotions on the best things to do, see, eat and buy in the various cities in South Africa. Some cool things I came across for Durban are the Sea Kayak Tour at Impact Adventure Africa, the African Revitalisation Full Day Spa Package at Mangwanani African Spa Sibaya, and a 3 night cruise on the MSC Orchestra to Cape Town

Other than that, I did also come across some unique and special gifts that would actually make a worthwhile addition under your Christmas tree. Here are some last minute gift ideas for the whole family:

The contemporary stainless steel collection includes 750ml double wall vacuum Flasks and 400ml double wall vacuum Travel Mugs – suitable for hot and cold drinks. Available in various distinct Carrol Boyes designs, the range is sure to delight this festive season:
