It’s a weird time right now because we can’t celebrate things in the normal way we used to by gathering, hugging and celebrating. The one thing we can do to make up for this is send an extra special thoughtful gift to someone who is celebrating something. By putting in extra thought and choosing a gift that is extra special, you can still show someone how much they mean to you.
So here are 10 thoughtful gifts you can have shipped to someone right now that will make them feel extra loved:
• For the crafter: craft a piece of creative wood and paint it
Now that we spend the majority of our time at home, we have to let out our creativity in one way or another. I find the best way to do this is to create beautiful things for the home. The other day I came across a website www.smartcrafts.co.za and I was like a kid in a candy store because I want to buy all the ceramic things and all the wooden pieces and all the paint and make everything for my home! I want to paint a large victorian tray pink and put it on my dressing table as well as this wooden bowl and use it for salads! I also love that this website has all the crafty things for the kids. Take a look at this website because there’s something for everyone and all of these things make for the perfect gift.

• For the daring: Love Bubbles
I’m definitely one that always encourages a little bit of me time. If me times takes the form of a gorgeous bubble bath with a partner, then even better! A perfect gift for this is a naughty bottle of cheeky cherry flavoured Love Bubbles – there’s just something so delicious yet naughty about a cherry scented something! For only R98, a gift as daring this, will lead to loads of fun!

• For the comfort seeker: 100% wool slippers
Is there anything more comforting than slipping your feet into a pair of 100% wool slippers when you get out of bed in the morning? Nope, there isn’t and it’s definitely one of life’s simple pleasures. These warm comfy slippers are a perfect gift for your mom, dad, granny or even best friend. Just get their shoe size and order a pair to be delivered to their door.

• For the man: a personalised Zippo lighter
Even if your man isn’t a smoker, a Zippo lighter makes for a wonderful gift! What makes it more special is if it’s personalised with a special message engraved on it. I came across this website www.engraving.co.za that offers this service for you and I love the whole concept of this. I also like that they have a pink Zippo lighter which I definitely need in my life!
