I’m wrapping up my final 2018 Gift Guides for the Holiday Season today with some lovely gift ideas for her, under R1000.
If you’re still stuck with ideas on the perfect gift and you’ve got a budget of R1000 (and less) to spend, then check out some of my top suggestions for her…
Kiehl’s Creme De Corps Body Butter
I’m not going to lie! I don’t enjoy giving (or receiving) body creams as gifts! Maybe I’m a snob, I don’t know? Maybe I just prefer the finer things in life – haha!
However if I were to receive a tub of Kiehl’s Creme De Corps, I certainly would not complain. It’s an iconic Body Cream that is loved by just about everyone I know. Even those that have never used it, will love it when they try it! There’s a very good reason it is an icon!
So that’s why it made my gift guide! Because it’s a fabulous gift and a fabulous product too! If you’re going to buy her a body cream, forget the el cheapo kind and splurge a little on Kiehl’s Creme de Corps Soy Milk & Honey Whipped Body Butter for R720 for 226 grams. She will love it!
Reflections Coffee Table Book
Coffee table books are also great gifts. Everyone want’s one to add some style and glamour to their coffee table with gorgeous printed hardbacks, yet people don’t often buy these for themselves.
If you’re stuck with gift ideas, then Reflection by Heinrich van den Berg is a great gift! Normally, it retails for R995.75, but you can get it on sale for R495 if you’re quick!
Inside this beautiful book by Internationally-awarded photographer and writer, is a showcase of poetic wildlife photographs to wow your visitors.
ZARA Dressing Gown
A dressing gown or a fabulous set of stylish and cute PJ’s are great gifts for the holidays, and this Sateen Dressing Gown from ZARA Home is perfection!
Not only that but it’s on sale for R929.00 (from R1,499.00), making it perfect if your budget is under R1000!
I love the colours and think they are perfect for the holidays, but this colour palette will work so well throughout the year too!
Crabtree & Evelyn White Cardamom Body Scrub
I love this brand so much, and if you’re looking for the perfect gift for the lady who loves her spoil herself, then she’ll definitely appreciate the Holiday Exclusive, Crabtree & Evelyn White Cardamom Body Scrub (R700 for 300 grams).
I know body scrubs often feel cheap and almost home-made. Like a glump of sugar loaded with glycerine and off you go! Not with this one though. It not only smells amazingly revitalising, but the texture of this body scrub feels every bit the luxury it is.
It’s thick and glorious, and makes your skin feel beautiful. Perfect to achieve that holiday glow for the festive season.
Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue
Fragrances are lovely gifts, but finding one that lasts and that hits under the R1000 mark is not always easy. That’s why I would suggest you check out the fragrance offering from Elizabeth Arden, and more specifically the new Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue fragrance.
With top notes of lemon, mandarin and violet leaves this is a perfect, dazzling scent for summer. The heart comprises of lotus, jasmine, hedione, lily of the valley, pear and rose and the indulgent base notes of musk, amberwood, orris and cedar finish it off beautifully,
I’ve found that most of my Arden fragrances are affordable and yet they have long lasting power for the price! One of my all time faves is the Elizabeth Arden White Tea fragrance, but for something new and a little more sparkling, I would suggest Elizabeth Arden My Fifth Avenue – R995 for the 100ml EDP or R795 for the 50ml EDP.
Crabtree & Evelyn Electric Sides Biscuits
Okay, so if you’re looking for something totally indulgent, special and for someone who really does appreciate the finer things in life, she will love the limited edition Crabtree & Evelyn Electric Sides Biscuits gift set. It retails for R400 and includes 100g of Dark and Orange Biscuits as well as 100g of Raspberry & White Chocolate Biscuits.
You may remember if you’re a regular StyleScoop reader that I featured the Raspberry & White Chocolate Biscuits from Crabtree & Evelyn’s sumptuous treats collection and even after having only sampled them in March, I can still remember the very delightful, full flavoured taste.
I remember thinking then, that these would make great gifts if you want to buy something special but don’t necessarily know what to buy someone, who lets say has everything she needs.
