Hello lovelies! So, have you made any headway with Christmas gift shopping? I’m on my way to being sorted with two of the girls, i have no idea what to buy The Captain but i know exactly what i want to get my Mom. Unfortunately all the browsing on Hello Pretty that i’ve been doing means i know EXACTLY what i’d like to buy for myself too and it’s proving difficult to keep my credit card locked away! Today’s Hello Pretty Xmas picks are all about what’s PRACTICAL & PRETTY, take a look…
As you already know i am a total bag lady – love them for any and every eventuality and this leather purse from Take Charge definitely falls into the I Want That category! It comes in various colourways and costs R799 – buy this one and others here
How cute is this LEGO inspired key chain set? Perfect for the houseproud couple – as a housewarming gift hell, even a wedding present too! It’s also the nice price of R145. Buy it here.
Family or friends visiting from overseas? These lovely local takeaway coasters made by Ed Suter make a fabulous gift for a homesick someone. He also does a range of placemats. But a set of 4 of the coasters for R140 and buy them here.
Ah, there couldn’t be a practical and pretty gift guide without including a tote, now could there? This handpainted canvas and leather lovely from Soet Soet comes in on trend electric blue (there are loads of other colours in bags and purses to choose from). It costs R750 and you can buy it here.
For the person who likes nothing better than jotting down their thoughts and sketching out plots and plans – a leatherbound notebook from Flourish could be nice. Also, it’s marked down from R240 to R180 – buy it here
I’m a big Photoblox fan and bought loads of their products as gifts last year. One of the hits was a photo cube which i had made for my Mom using pix of our girls and Charley’s cousin – she loves it and it’s a great reminder of some of her favourite people – on a practical note, it makes a great paperweight and even better is a reminder of the fabulous people in one’s life – and that’s invaluable, right? They cost R350 and all you have to do is upload the pix you want and they do the rest! Order yours here
I’ve included another key storage item because i am ALWAYS losing my keys and phone and because i think so many other people are too! This is the Hello shelf by MBA – it’s a convenient, contemporary and oh-so-good-looking piece of furniture that would look fabulous in any space. I absolutely love it and would love one in my home! Such a nice gift for the style loving somebody who has everything except a place for putting their stuff when they walk in the door!! It costs R1000 and you can buy it here.
