Small and sentimental gift ideas for loved ones

TIPS AND TRICKS  |  NOV 27, 2022


Take a deep breath, unclench your jaw and try your best not to stress out.

We’re talking about gifting today. Gifting someone something sentimental could be a stressful endeavour. Still, it doesn’t have to be. And specifically, why you shouldn’t fall into the trap of being anxious about what to get for your office’s Secret Santa, or if you are racking your brain trying to decide what to gift your mom for Christmas, because truly, what beats the gift of life, right? Well, stick with us, up the ante, roll up your sleeves and let's get creative at gift shops in Durbanville with their wide selection of gift-giving options. 

Book bonanza

As South Africa’s leading discount book retailer, Bargain Books provides quality best-selling novels at affordable rates. If it’s gifting you’re after, check out their Capegate Shopping Centre branch for top-of-the-range novels from Jodi Picoult and Wilbur Smith. If it’s the inspiration you’re after, or maybe you want to drop a subtle hint at someone, gift them Malcolm Gladwell’s Talking to Strangers or James Clear’s Atomic Habits. Bargain Books is proud to have won SA Bookseller of the years 2011-2018, so if you’re gifting, get it from a bookstore you can trust. 

CUM Books is the largest retailer of Christian products in South Africa, selling various Christ-centred books that will boost your spirituality and enrich your life one page at a time. They’re sold in both English and Afrikaans. Find a bible, scripture-inspired card, music collection and movies, journals and stationary that will make an incredible gift for any occasion. 

Gifting go-getters 

Cardies is one of the most well-known and beloved gift shops in South Africa. They’re the best place to get a gift on the go that doesn’t look rushed. You’ll be spoiled for choice with their wide collection of options, from candles, Instax cameras, collectables, gadgets, games, and so much more! Their aisles are filled to the brim with greeting cards, balloons, and gifts of all shapes, sizes and prices. 

Experience the gift-giving wonderland and one of South Africa’s foremost retail chains at The Crazy Store. Their array of playful products makes for perfect presents for the whole family. Shop their book selection perfect for kids all the way to grandparents. Gift yourself the option of coming through on your promise to become a wizard with a toolkit and repair much-needed touches around the house with their collection of electrical gear and hardware. Or shop their household cleaning essentials to get things looking spick and span; now, doesn’t that sound like a gift worth giving yourself? No? Okay, shop their pet, fashion and DIY products and embrace the spirit of giving. 

Stock up on your A to Z’s of stationary, books, arts and crafts and study essentials at PNA, the well-established South African franchise brand and a market leader in the retail industry. Give your child the gift of being well-prepared for the next school year. And if that doesn’t go down well (we tried), encourage them to colour their lives with artistic expression by shopping PNA’s wide variety of art essentials to bring out their vibrant side. 

Step into a world of Korean influence with Ximi Vogue. As an international retail franchise brand, they offer Korean products at affordable prices. Change direction and head to Capegate Shopping Centre to broaden your gifting options because Ximi Vogue has it all, and then some! Have your pick of a variety of accessories, toys, beauty and skincare products, as well as stationary and international statement-making fashion pieces. Shop great value, high-quality today!

That’s a (gift) wrap!
