The 2019 Deloitte holiday survey indicated that 60% of shoppers in the US prefer to do their shopping online, with e-commerce sales only expected to grow in the coming years. And with a 40% increase in ecommerce transactions compared to last year, SA is probably not too far behind when it comes to shopping for Christmas gifts online. Which is why we’ve created this quick Christmas gift guide filled with goodies you can buy online.
For the fashion lovers
We’ve all got someone in our lives who simply can’t walk past the front of a clothing store, without stopping to stare at this season’s latest trends. While it might feel like there’s a lot of pressure to pick the perfect item for a fashion-forward friend. The good news is that there are plenty of online options. There are also a few fail-safe items that every fashionista will be thrilled to receive.
Leather is always an excellent choice for accessories. And whether it’s a pair of classic pumps, a handbag, belt or wallet. It’s tough to go wrong with the local, handmade options on offer. For the ladies, a beautiful, bright silk scarf will work for any season. While the gents are sure to be satisfied with the season’s funkiest socks.
For the beauty buffs
There are few things better than a bit of pampering and, luckily, plenty of luxury skincare products available online. While a pre-packed set bought plucked from the shelf of your nearest pharmacy might not be the best present, a carefully considered pamper pack filled with indulgent products is oh so special. Choose a brand that’s sustainably made and packaged and cruelty-free for the ultimate guilt-free goodies delivered to your door. This is the second Christmas gift guide .
Start your set with a moisturising cleanser that will refresh and renew. Then pack in a rich whipped body butter filled with essential oils for nourished skin with a youthful glow. Follow that with some deliciously fragranced room mist and a scented candle to invigorate your giftee with the finest African aromatherapy. Finally, for some on-the-go indulgence, pop in an enriching lip balm in an uplifting scent.
For the décor adorer
Home is where the heart is. Which is why a beautiful décor item is often the perfect present. Although everyone has their own taste and style when it comes to interior design, there are plenty of items that anyone will welcome into their space.
From monsteras to ferns and succulents, you’ll hardly ever go wrong with a lovely piece of greenery. Pop the plant baby into a pretty pot and you’re good to go. Alternatively, pick out an ornate vase or a lovely set of salad servers. There are some items no one can ever have too many of.
From fashion to beauty buys, there are plenty of presents to be found online. Choosing items that can be delivered to your door will ensure that you take the stress out of Christmas shopping while securing the perfect gifts. Just remember to add something extra for yourself as a reward for all your hard.
