Gifting ideas for the Festive Season
It’s the holiday season, and that means it is time to start considering what to get your loved ones at the end of the year. We have some suggestions for you that will help make the decisions a little easier.
A Cellphone, possibly for the teens
This is especially a good idea for the teenager in your life. They’re all about the latest trends, including uploading cool snaps onto Instagram to wow their friends. And you have a good couple of phones to choose from. We covered some of the Samsung range earlier in the year, so revisit those blogs if you want to know more about them. Today, though, we’ll talk about Apple.
Apple’s iOS operating system makes it basically a hack-proof phone, so if you want to give them added security, consider the new iPhone Xs or iPhone Xs Max. If they’re a bit high for your budget, the more affordable, but still really good, iPhone XR is also available now. These phones take amazing photos and can even shoot 4K video at a frame rate of 60 frames a second! It’s amazing and allows them to capture those special family occasions in intricate detail for years to come.
Gaming for the men in your life
For your kid (or the dad who’s a kid at heart) there are numerous gaming systems, like the PlayStation 4 and the Xbox One. Both are perfect for all kinds of games, whether it’s heart-pounding racing, adrenalin-filled action, imagination-capturing fantasy adventure, or pretty much anything you can think of.
If you have a younger child, say around six, you can get the Nintendo Switch, which has the honour of being the first game console that you can both connect to your TV set and “switch” into a portable gaming device to take on the road. And if you’re going on a road trip this holiday, it makes for excellent entertainment to keep the young one busy.
Visit our tenant BT Games for a huge selection of games, plus the gaming consoles to play them with. You can also get computer equipment, gaming headphones, speakers, and more from Computer Mania, DionWired, and Incredible Connection.
For the adventurous
Due South, Decathlon, Dixon Adventure Centre, and Cape Union Mart all provide incentives to go on an adventure, whether it’s up the mountains, to the Himalayas, or braving the frigid icy conditions of Antarctica – yes, people actually go to the latter, but plenty of people like journeying into the unknown and it makes for a nice break from the kids if you want some bonding time with your spouse, partner or friends.
Get your supplies from one of our outdoors stores and buy (for the adventurers in the family) special all-weather condition jackets, rugged backpacks, Garmin watches, utility knives, hardy boots, and more.
Then surprise your loved one with a flight through Flight Centre to the adventure destination of your choice.
Jewellery for a special lady
Jewellery has never been more affordable than it is now, especially platinum. Whether it’s to informally renew your vows or simply to see a literal sparkle in her eye, diamond rings, earrings, and jewelled necklaces will bring lustre to your love.
Nothing says, “I care” like a gift that will last through the eons of time – after all, diamonds are forever.
Not that it’s all for women. For the special man in your life, there’s a selection of high-end watches that will suit any outfit and make him quite the dapper gentleman.
Visit these stores to find the perfect jewel for your sweetheart.
Don’t forget the furry members of the family!
Your dogs or your cats are just as much a part of the family as the human contingent – we know that! So why not throw them a metaphorical bone and include them in the festive fun?
There’s a large selection of cats and dogs’ toys to choose from at Absolute Pets, your one-stop store for all your fur babies’ needs. From chewable bones to crinkly mice toys to laser pointers which give your feline friends some excitable exercise in the home, you’ll find it all at Absolute Pets.
