No doubt, this festive season is going to be bit different and we all need a little extra loving after a seriously stressful 2020. To us, the festive season is a time to relax, unwind, have some fun, be merry and indulge a little more than we know we should. This year may have come with an abnormally large bucket of baggage, but we do hope you find the time to do whatever it is that makes you renewed for 2021.
As always, we have a special selection of items in store for gifting your chosen ones this festive season. From ceramics and homeware for your family members who love to welcome you home, to picnic blankets and beach bags for summer days with friends, to our loved cotton pyjama sets as a treat for lazy days at home.
At the end of the day, it’s always good to remember that gifting is about showing you care. Our selected in-store gifts have various price points. As much we appreciate the support, we also understand that it can be difficult to extend the love to all your loved ones. Here are some alternative, sustainable ways to gift this festive season.
Virtual presents, the interwebz is your friend
A collage of memories, an album on bandcamp, a homemade video, a subscription to app/streaming services, online classes or e-books.
Hand me downs, bring someone you love up
Gifting an item of yours you no longer use but would be well loved by someone close to your heart. That dress you know your friend adores, and you know it's time to pass it on.
Do it yourself, you'll feel great
Take this time as an opportunity to learn a new skill and gift it. Think body scrubs, hair masks, candles, mixed media collages, poetry, notebooks or flower arrangements.
Coupons, they're cheeky but they're cute.
This one is not new but we simply love it. Gift a coupon, hand-made with love and thought up by you, eg: IOU date nights, home style head massages. They are FREE and oh so personal.
In everything you do, we say be thoughtful, not wasteful. Think twice before spending that extra R100. Be kind, Be merry, Be safe.
