Great Gift Ideas for the Festive Season

Tuesday, 8 December 2015

When it comes to the festive season, picking the right gifts for the right person is important.

It’s right up there with deciding where you’ll be spending your holidays as well as the types of activities you will be doing whilst you are there. It certainly isn’t something to be left to the last minute.

Luckily, we have searched the internet on your behalf and have picked out some great gift ideas so you don’t have to. We have also ensured that you don’t break the budget doing so, as most of the gifts that we recommend are reasonably priced. Let’s take a look at what these are:


Phillips Norelco Beard Trimmer (R2, 750.00)

If you know a guy that loves keeping a beard, then he also needs a trimmer that allows him to show his furry face at its finest.  The Phillips Norelco Beard Trimmer could be described as the Ferrari of trimmers as it has a built-in vacuum to suck up all the hairs before they land in the bathroom basin or on the floor. It also has up to 18 length settings which will allow him to remove just the right amount of hair. Available from wantitall.co.za  

Fat Max 4-in-1 Mobile Workstation (R1, 906.84)

Buying a gift for a do-it-yourself type who has lots of tools lying about?  Look no further than the Fat Max 4-in 1 Mobile Workstation. It’s part toolbox, part storage bin, and part workstation, all in one. The best part about it is, it disassembles to reveal four separate storage sections that can store anything and everything, making it easy for anyone to bring all types of tools to site. Available from Strand Hardware  

Deep Sea Sand Art (R1, 261.00)

At first glance it may resemble a typical Christmas snow globe, but it is not. The Deep Sea Sand Art is a perfect gift for a guy who’s interested in science and geography; it’s a beautiful decorative piece that when rotated, recreates beautiful illusions of nature as it forms what looks like desertscapes, mountain ranges, smoke, rain and clouds. It forms a microcosm of our natural environment. Available online

Komono Winston Watch (R999.00)

A truly stylish guy who likes keeping up to date with fashion trends will surely appreciate the understated beauty of the Komono Winston Watch. The Komono Winston is a stylish watch that features an embossed leather strap and a silver face housed in a stainless steel case. Available from Superbalist


Harman/Kardon Portable Wireless Speaker (R1, 700.00)

The Harman Kardon Portable Wireless Speaker is a gift that will definitely be used long after the silly season is over. It’s a great gift for anyone who likes listening to music and likes being outdoors where there aren’t any plug points such as at parks or the beach. Thanks to its eight-hour play time, you can keep jamming all night long. Available from Dion Wired

Cluse Boheme Rose Gold Watch (R 1,702.00)

If jewellery is her thing, then the Cluse Boheme Rose Gold Watch will certainly melt her heart. The Cluse watch knows how to make a statement without being too loud and brash about it thanks to its subtle and minimalist face, and white straps finished with a rose gold colour. This watch is a true statement piece and knows how to set the bar. It’s available from Clusewatches.com

Apple iPad Mini 4 (From R 6,999.00)

Ultra-thin and lightweight, the iPad Mini 4 is part organiser, part diary and part computer in one. It’s a powerful tool that comes with a 7.9 inch retina display and has more than enough space for all kinds of cool apps. It’s a definite winner for both work and play. Available from Applestore.com/za

Yuppiechef Voucher (From R 500.00)  

You can take the guesswork out of buying her the ‘perfect gift’ because she can buy exactly what she likes with a Yuppiechef voucher. They stock everything from unique kitchenware pieces right down to everything you could need and want for every room in the house, useful for anyone who has just moved into a new place. Available from Yuppiechef.com

No two people are the same and what works for one person might not necessarily work for another. When you are buying a gift, remember that the price of a gift doesn’t quantify how much those people mean to you. It is, after all, the thought that counts and a gift that comes from the heart is better than just an expensive gift.

When you have decided on a gift you would like to buy, do include Auto & General Portable Possessions cover  to ensure that the gift is protected against theft and damage.
