Shopping for men is often the hardest part! Ticking Dad / your partner off the list is probably the most daunting part of Christmas shopping. We’ve looked through our mall and found a few great ideas for you! Our Luggage and Leather stores have really gorgeous travel gear, from sporty backpacks to stylish laptop bags and briefcases. You can also treat the man in your life to a new wallet or travel bag. Head to Due South Escapes or Frasers for more inspiration and ideas!
Another great idea is a gorgeous pair of mens sunnies! Or even new frames for his spectacles. Summer is coming and every man looks great in a pair of stylish sunglasses. It’s every man’s favourite accessory, so you definitely can’t go wrong with this one. Head to Sunglasses Hut, Spec-Savers, Vision Works or Eyelink in our mall. Find the full directory here.
Another great idea for men is also a good, classic watch. You can opt for something stylish and timeless from Harris & D’Arcy or shop at our other jewellers such as American Swiss or Sterns. If your guy isn’t into jewellery then you can also shop sports or fitness watches at our sporting stores such as Cape Union Mart, Mr Price Sports, Totalsport or Sporscene. Find all our sporting store options here.
Shopping for kids is always the most fun! There are two things that all kids love … Stationery and Playing! Yokico is a new concept kids stationery and toy store that is happy, bright and full of really fun gadgets for kids. From head phones to backpacks, adorable colouring-in tools and cute watches, you’ll definitely find something fun and exciting for the kid in your life! Find them here.
Another favourite of ours is Mr Price Sport! They have a huge range of kids toys, games and activities that are perfect for Summer, the school holidays and the festive season. From giant pool floats to classic badmington to Monopoly and even the popular Trump Cards – you’ll find something that’s perfect for both your shopping budget and the kids!
Also don’t forget about Toy Kingdom and Toys R Us. They both have gift catalogues in store to help you shop and their staff are great at helping you find the most popular kids gifts this year. We especially love these options. From adorable baby dolls for girls and exciting racing and track-building challenges for boys. Find Toy Kingdom and Toys R Us here.
Please trust us when we say that you cannot go wrong with a beauty purchase for the tween, girl or woman in your life. One of our favourites is Sorbet, as she can spend a voucher on treatments, pampering, products, skincare, beauty purchases and even makeup. This is the perfect gift for the festive season if she wants to get summer-ready with some sparkly new nails, a fresh pedicure and a snappy new lipstick. Speak to the store consultants for advice on creating the perfect Xmas gift for her. Their packaging is also very sweet!
We have a huge variety of beauty stores in our mall such as Clicks, Deluxe Laser & Spa, Dis-Chem, ManiPedi, Partners Hair Design and Signature Cosmetics & Fragrances. Most of them will gladly offer gift cards or will assist you in creating something sweet for the woman in your life. Find our full beauty directory here.
Another great idea is a hair voucher! Every woman loves her hair and being treated to a fresh ‘do’ for the festive season sounds just perfect. Carlton Hair and Partners Hair Design both offer vouchers for various hair options such as a “Cut and Blow Dry” or a “Cut, Colour and Style”. You can’t go wrong with either, so get her something that she’ll use and treasure every day!
That’s it for now! We hope that you’re as excited about the festive season as we are. We highly recommend getting your shopping done early so that you can spend your much deserved holiday leave enjoying your time off and your family.
