Five great ideas for stocking fillers

December 08, 2020 2 min read

This year has been a challenge for many people in South Africa. But there is a silver lining. Several people have used the difficult economic situation to pursue a passion for creating beautiful items.

We sell some of these stunning, locally-made items on our website, giving these creatives an opportunity to make money from their passion. Each of these items is made with the intention to be beautiful, nurture the space and bring a smile to your face. They also happen to make the perfect stocking filler as a small gesture of love this festive season.

Here are a few ideas to give someone a small but meaningful gift this festive season.

1.  Artisanal soap

There’s little as gratifying as watching the foam of freshly-scented soap cover your hands, leaving them clean. We stock a range of handmade artisanal soaps that are made from natural ingredients.

2.  Soy candle

Lighting a candle is a great way to kick back, relax and enjoy some pamper time. We all deserve a bit of a break after the difficult year, and our range of scented, soy candles are perfect for setting the scene.

3.  Shweshwe pouch

A bold, handmade pouch is the perfect accessory to keep special items such as jewellery, makeup, hair items and stationery. These useful gifts will hold your objects in a beautiful way. Each of the patterned accessories is handmade with love and care.

5.  Masks and sanitizers

It’s been a strange year, meaning that the unsuspecting gift of a handmade mask and fun, scented sanitizer is a great stocking filler gift. Not only are you giving someone something that they really need, but you are also making sure that they stay safe this festive season.
