THE BEST GIFTS COME FROM THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX
Everyone is unique and there is no magic formula for perfect gifting, but with our inspiration for unusual gifts, you should find something for anyone!
Gifts should be personal, and everyone is unique, so it’s important to think of unusual things. Not everyone will be pleased with a soccer shirt or sparkly decoration, and they don’t have to make do with those obvious choices! Thoughtful presents are always appreciated.
There’s nothing quite like the feeling you’ll get watching a loved one unwrap the perfect, unexpected, gift. We’re here to help create moments like that in homes all over South Africa this Christmas.
Unusual gifts for him
For dads, husbands, brothers, sons and boyfriends who have everything, a little creativity can go a long way.
Do you know someone who is always at his desk and likes his beverages to stay hot? The solution is a handy cup warmer. Even better if the coffee is freshly ground! Why not pair this with a coffee subscription, or a new gadget? The clean design of this coffee and spice grinder is a perk, while it delivers the superior flavour of freshly ground produce.
For the outdoor enthusiast who also loves to cook, this folding knife is the most stylish camping and picnic knife around. Plus, next time they’re cutting a fishing line or carving meat off the braai you’ll be in their thoughts.
Unusual gifts for her
For the lady who delights in life’s simple pleasures, there are many options to bring a smile to her face. With mindfulness gaining more attention all the time, pencils and felt tips are back. These colouring postcards offer a seriously relaxing activity for the contemplative woman in your life. She’ll love them even more when paired with a calming aroma from this cool succulent-shaped diffuser.
As summer approaches, exercise routines step up and we all spend more time outside. A stainless steel water bottle is the companion du jour. Staying hydrated is important even if you’re not breaking a sweat though, and pouring naturally flavoured water from this glass infuser hits the spot for anyone! For lovers of tea, this glass teapot infuser is a classic way to enjoy some tea and cake in the garden on cool summer evenings.
Unusual gifts for wine lovers
Wine connoisseurs will welcome gadgets that can improve or prolong their favourite tipple. The first step is to open the bottle, and there are no more struggles with this efficient two-step corkscrew.
If you’re looking for a gift for someone who loves entertaining or being the host with the most, a wine thermometer is something that every oenophile needs to serve drinks at the optimum temperature. In addition, aeration is an important, and this wine aerator enhances each glass.
Just because you didn’t finish the bottle, doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it again the next day. Thanks to the Champagne (and wine) sealer, the innovative V-Gauge vacuum wine preserver will keep all the flavour in, allowing them to enjoy that special wine over more evenings!
Unusual gifts for parents
Parenting is hard work, and they’ll appreciate something that the kids can enjoy too.
The NutriBullet Baby Bullet allows them to easily make the best homemade food for baby with no fuss. It’s also the perfect aid to healthy new year’s resolutions. For those with a slightly sweeter tooth, the whole family can have fun dreaming up tasty and even healthy ice pops with the genius Zoku mini pop maker.
For more family time in the next year, a picnic basket to take with on family outings is the perfect gift. In addition to that, a well-placed drink dispenser is a great and easy way for kids (and parents) to help themselves to refreshments, and it looks cool too!
Now that you’re gifting with flair, why not reward yourself with something that caught your eye too? 😉
