You’ve heard the expression, ‘It’s the thought that counts’ which very often is just an excuse for a lame gift. Rather than disappointing someone, use your knowledge of them to buy something they’ll really love. Are they mad about their new puppy? Then maybe a nice doggie treat bag would do the trick. Are they an avid gamer? Maybe upgrade them to the latest PlayStation or Xbox?
Cool kitchen gadgets
If you’re not sure what to get, you can’t go wrong with something for the kitchen. Whether your loved one is single or married with kids, they are bound to like the latest kitchen gadgets or appliances. This could be something inexpensive like the 8‐piece Nutribullet from our range, which costs only R199 per month on a rent‐to‐own basis. Rent-to-own is a great model for those who may want to buy a slightly more expensive gift for the kitchen like an espresso coffee machine or dishwasher but don’t have the means to pay the full amount upfront, or want to avoid getting into unnecessary debt.
Buy in bulk and save
Don’t be afraid of buying the same gift twice (or multiple times). If there’s a good deal that you know about, why not spread the Christmas cheer by getting it for several people? You may even qualify for a discount if you buy more than one of the same items. Also check our bundle deals on appliances and electronics you may be able to save and get more than one gift for one price.
Avoid the crowds and buy online
Reluctant to be crushed in a last‐minute shopping stampede? Then go online and hunt for the best specials. South Africans are becoming increasingly braver about trusting the internet to do their Christmas shopping and buying online means you don’t need to battle malls and spend ages trying to find parking, plus you have the benefit of having gifts delivered directly to your family and friends. Teljoy’s extensive online range, includes cell phones, gaming products, furniture and appliances and already has delivery and installation costs factored into the prices.
