Okay, let’s not beat around the bush here! Christmas is in 21 days meaning there are only 20 days left to do your Christmas shopping. Luckily for you, we have put together our version of the ultimate gift guide this year – one that suits every budget! While the guide is mainly aimed at the ladies (well done all you men reading this post and getting some fab ideas along the way), there are a few things in here that may suit the boys as well.

Our idea was to create our own advent calendar – that is one gift for each day in the lead up to Christmas (as per usual, we are a couple of days late!) but to divide these into five price categories:

  • Hey Big Spender! No limit here 🙂
  • The One Thousand Club: If your budget is around the R1000 point;
  • Half a grand is GRAND: Gifts coming in the range of R500;
  • Splendid Stocking fillers: Items around or below the R300 mark;
  • Cheap as chips: Less than 100 bucks (ideal for Secret Santa and the like)

We seriously loved each and every item included here, so if you are still looking for a gift for either us then this is a good place to start 😉
