Oh it is the season to be jolly!, Happy Holidays my fellow Maree Readers and to celebrate this lovely festive season I’m sharing my Christmas wishlist with my top 5 gifts for Her and Him. So let’s get to it:
Christmas Wishlist for Her
- Lush Bathbomb
These babies are absolutely heavenly with an absolute variety to choose from with simply beautiful fragrances. They are perfect little Christmas gifts that will leave any girl smiling and happy. But these eco-friendly gifts are not just light on the pocket with a retail price of R69.50 but they are also animal free testing products that are 100% natural.
2. Morphe Palletes
For all the make-up lovers, I feel these make-up palettes are a must have. They have amazing pigments which is an essential in an eyeshadow palette as well as 75 colours to play around with. Personally, I’m in love with the neutral tones and matte palettes. I know a huge dilemma is figuring out where to buy these products especially since accidentally buying fake products is quite common. I highly recommend Muse Beauty, they are a South African based make-up company that sells international products and you can get your Morphe palette for R550.
3. Jacqui Emmanuel SA #Shoplocal
She’s a South African designer with a flair for street wear, if you are fashion forward who loves embracing new styles this brand is the brand for you. Jacqui keeps her looks fun and fresh from her gorgeous floral bomber jackets to the staple t-shirt dresses, she is definitely a designer you are going to want to own. Add some fierce glam with Jacqui Emmanuel SportsLuxe this Christmas. You can visit her store at 8 Morrison Street, Durban.
4. Avery South Africa #Shoplocal
This dainty store has recently launched their online store and I have completely fallen in love with their beautiful pieces. Everything is so delicate and pretty and I honestly wish I could just buy everything. But it was this antler ring which comes in rose gold! Just thought I’d mention and necklace that really stole my heart. The ring is R80 and the necklace is R120 and they are packaged in adorable little mason jars. I have to admit I want them! ( Just hinting in case anyone wants to get them for me)
5. Kai Blankets
So my friends will tell you that I have been obsessed with this blanket since forever and sadly none of my friends have taken up knitting to make me one of these comfy mermaid tail blankets. Every girl deserves to feel like Ariel at least once in their life and now you can be happy, warm mermaid on land. Unfortunately these blankets are quite expensive but you can purchase them on Kai Blankets for $50 which is R681 for a blanket. But, hey I still want one just a much cheaper one.
Christmas Wishlist for Him
- By Black Dapper #shoplocal
Since we are in the age where men probably use just as much product in their hair as females this gift is for all the hair obsessed males out there. Dapper is a vegan friendly pomade used to style men’s hair. It has a firm hold and slick finish, perfect for all the gentlemen out there. This product is a home grown styling formula that is 100% natural. So for head turning hair I recommend giving this product a try. You can get this pomade for R150. By Black has a few other products so make sure to check them out on Instagram @_byblack or send them an email via firstname.lastname@example.org
2. His Apparel #Shoplocal
Look trendy this festive season with His Apparel, they have fun designs and colours which are awesome for the Durban summers. The great thing about buying local and from smaller designers you have pieces in your wardrobe that are unique. The quality in the clothing is great and you can also get your hands on adorable bowties and handkerchiefs. These are adorable gifts for a guy ladies. You can check out their website to browse their merchandise.
3. New Kicks
I’m a crazy shoe lady especially when it comes to sneakers, spoil your man with an everyday sneaker like a white Converse or black pair of Vans or be adventurous and daring and buy something unique. Superbalist is one of my favourite online stores and they have an incredible range of brands to choose from. Whether it’s plain and simple or bold and fun, you can definitely find the right shoe for anyone.
4. Beats Wireless Headphones
In all honesty you could just get him the new iPhone 7 and then he gets a free pair of wireless EarPods however we do need to be realistic. The Beats wireless headphones are great with better sound and more comfortable padding to give you a farebeater listening experience. And now there is no worries about the annoying cord getting in your way. These headphones are awesome for workouts at the gym, you can listen to your playlist and workout without having to occasionally worry about strangling yourself.
5. Fifa 17
What would my wishlist be without the much anticipated Fifa17 which was released earlier this year. However that is not stopping me from adding it to my list, it is sought after game and one that is much loved. Truthfully I have never played this game but a good friend of mine helped me out and told me to definitely add it to the wishlist.
For those of you who were looking for what to get your family members or friends, I really hoped this helped.
Happy Maree Holidays
