Some Ideas For the Last Minute Christmas Gifters…

And just like that, it’s that time of year again.

This post is for everyone who just woke up and realised that it’s mid-December. I’ve seen it myself this week – people scrambling in the malls and online stores, trying to figure out what on Earth to get their family and friends this year. I personally don’t celebrate Christmas, but my husband’s family does, and we also belong to that group of last minuters…every year. We (the mini O’Reillys) also celebrate and exchange small gifts on New Year’s Eve so we usually kill two birds with one shop. This year’s been quite a hectic one so we’re keen on saving where we can. One of my fave places to shop for gifts this time of year is Clicks. And you guessed it, they have some great deals and specials on up until Christmas eve. So it’s not too late for you to grab your special people some goodies and treats. Have a quick look at what my challenge was with these gifts…


For Neighbours/Colleagues/Family Friends

Who doesn’t like chocolates? They’re simple, easy and always go down well – unless of course, you give it to your uncle who’s allergic. In that case, please, gift him something else that’s friendly to his health. Otherwise, chocolates are a slam dunk. I decided to gift these to Kai’s teachers and their assistants this week on his last day. They do so much for our kids, and I thought it fitting to just treat them to something for all their work this year. These are part of Clicks’ infamous 3 for 2 deals where you get the third item free. I think it’s a good idea to stock up on these as fillers too. Just look out for the purple sticker šŸ˜‰

For Your Sister/Bestie/Mom-in-Law

Clicks has a wide variety of hair and beauty appliances and products for all hair types which is awesome. Unfortunately, I don’t curl my afro so I can’t keep this goody for myself. So I’ll be gifting it to my sister in law who likes to curl her hair for special occasions. Those Real Technique brushes are so coveted, I’m torn over who to give them to – my makeup obsessed girlfriend or…keep them for myself. Hmm…

For Your Boyfriend/Brother/Uncle with chocolate allergies

I had and still have no idea what the multi tool thingy mabobby is for. It looks handy. But I figured this was something Kev’s dad would love because he’s into these kinds of tools. It’s also on special as part of the 3 for 2 deal. Headphones are great if you have a music obsessed brother or cousin. These ones also have a microphone so they can sing their hearts out too.

For Your Kid/Niece/Little Cousin

A very practical gift here with an electric toothbrush. This is perfect for Kai to keep at his grandparents’ house so there’s no excuses to forget to brush before bed time when he sleeps over. Then of course, cute stuffed animals for a kid any age is a nice addition to their room.

Some other cool gift ideas that are part of the 3 for 3 deals:

  • Sorbet gift packages
  • Fragrance fist sets
  • Oh So Heavenly toiletries
  • Kiddies story books

In a nutshell, Clicks has figured it all for you. Just head over, remember to swipe your Club Card to get points for cash back later and make it a one-stop shop for your gift list. You’ve got 10 days until Christmas. Happy shopping!
