Hi lovelies – i hope you’re having some semblance of a weekend!! I’m busy writing up this post while Charley Bird has her sleep – things are a bit nuts here – The Captain is sailing in a regatta, i’m busy sorting out our house because we have friends coming to stay and we’re off on holiday and i have some gift wrapping to do too. For the first time ever i’ve finished 90% of my Christmas shopping but i am completely stuck with gifts for The Captain who says he wants nothing – believe you me, i’m tempted to go with it. WHY are guys so hard to buy for?!! Of course i have no problem in buying for other boys, it’s just my guy – so if you’re stuck, maybe these finds from Constantia Courtyard will help?
Top Row If someone in your life is a Star Wars fan then the light up LEGO Darth Vadar keyring from Toy Time will go down a treat! Do you remember these spud guns? Hours and hours of fun are promised with these bad boys – i also found it at Toy Time; The Real Shaving Co is an AMAZING imported range of shaving balms, moisturisers, cleansers et al which i found at Clicks – it’s really well priced too and i love the packaging; if your man travels a lot, he’ll really appreciate a sturdy luggage tag and suitcase securer – they come in loads of colours, from Present Time.
2nd Row The Captain has had a stressful year and i know he’s interested in yoga, so i think a class from Yoga Spirit is what i am going to get him – i recommended it for the best friend’s gift guide too – i think a voucher is a great idea for anyone! Quirky Me is a favourite of mine for gifts for anyone and everyone and this carafe with matching glass from cult designer Rob Ryan is a really goody find; Italian Lifestyle has loads of stylish buys for guys – like this Bugatti wine opener; for the coffee aficionado – these beans from Melissa’s are great!
3rd Row The Dapper Chap range of gifts and gadgets is really cool – i love these magnetic sculpture balls – find them at Present Time; Nivea creme is a classic skincare product and a perfect stocking filler that will be used a lot – find it at Clicks; Every man cave needs a suitable rug – and Cape Persian Carpet House has loads of amazing choices; it’s practical but it’s a perfect present for someone who is serious about their health – find this Oral B toothbrush at Clicks.
Bottom Row If your man is tough on his things – the UAG range of phone covers are fantastic! You’ll find them at Flash Cellular; carnivore in the house? Then these top notch steak knives from Italian Lifestyle are a must! Rayban Wayfarers are a classic buy and make a great gift – buy them at Mullers Optometrists (and if you’re on Discovery, get 20% off); I LOVE this dinosaur 3D sculpture puzzle – it’s meant for kids, but guarenteed, any guy would love to spend Christmas morning putting it together. I found it at Toy Time.
