Jingle all the way...Our favourite Christmas stocking fillers for 2019.
It's the most wonderful time of the year and you need to get ready for Christmas present shopping. SA Life Magazine has had the wonderful opportunity to deal with some of the best brands in the business this year, so decided to help you wit ha few Christmas gift ideas and rounded up some of our absolute favourite items of the year. These little Christmas beauties are a MUST BUY for every family.
1.) ZeroBar SA
ZERO waste bars are water-free, plastic-free and cruelty-free. They were borne out of a Proudly South African factory that adheres to the highest standards, using locally-sourced ingredients. Their favourite things to do are: clean, enrich, moisturise, condition, shine, strengthen, nourish, soothe and repair. They smell incredible (even if we say so ourselves) and, with a little water, the incredible bar becomes a super-rich, creamy, luxurious lather that rinses out quickly and easily. With sustainability top of mind, these beauties will last you through between 55 and 70 hair washes. That's a lot for a little bar!
2.) Kudu Cosmetics
KUDU'S Bio-Active serum delivers powerful and pure plant nutrition to restore optimal skin function and promote a healthy complexion. A few drops goes a long way. A serum should be used before you apply your regular daily moisturiser or on its own to boost the skin with moisture and vital nutrients.
3.) Christmas special - Cotton short pajama set from One Boutique
Their stunning cotton short pajamas are now available in plain & floral cotton colours with piping & seasonal florals or navy pinstripe cotton. They are perfect for a slumber party with your girls, those lounge around days or hot summer nights or Christmas gifts. Each sleepwear set is carefully packaged in a white gift bag with tissue paper.
4.) Wixworth Gin
Like all classic London Dry Gins, the process of making Wixworth begins with neutral spirit alcohol. The magic happens with the addition of a variety of carefully selected natural ingredients – the botanicals. It takes an exceptional craftsman with years of experience to create the unique blend of botanicals that give Wixworth its decidedly distinctive, delicious flavour. In pursuit of perfection, Wixworth is artfully crafted in small batches from hand-picked, hand-selected botanicals, both traditional and unusual. The result is an exquisitely balanced, delicately fragranced gin that’s crisp and dry with a predominant juniper flavour, hints of spice and citrus notes. Fresh, bright, and tantalizingly full of flavour, it’s as enjoyable in a classic gin and tonic, as it is in an array of delicious cocktails of your choice.
5.) Fragrance Boutique's Fragrances.
