GIFT IDEAS FOR A SOCIALLY DISTANCED FESTIVE SEASON
Yes, you could always get store vouchers, but we’re highlighting some creative ideas for more thoughtful and personalised gift options to suit all of the different personalities in your life. These may even help you think of things for the overseas friends and family that you might not be able to visit this festive season.
- The Foodie
An Uber gift card will get you more than just a lift, it also lets you order any meal through Uber Eats – so dinner can be on you at their convenience. UCook on the other hand is a great way for people to save time grocery shopping and but still be hands on and learn how to create sumptuous dishes. With their delivered meal kits, all you need is a couple of basic ingredients and a passion for cooking.
- The Book Lover
Of course, there’s the standard book voucher, but you could also get the bookworm in your family an eBook of the next read on their list so they can take their book anywhere. An audiobook is another great idea that allows readers to get their story fix while driving, working, or getting other tasks done.
- The Film Buff
The movie nut in your family is likely suffering serious withdrawal with a lack of new releases on the big screen. Brighten up their square eyes with a subscription to their favourite streaming service, like Netflix or Amazon Prime Video. New blockbusters are bound to start releasing again soon though, in this case, another option is a Ster-Kinekor subscription card, where, for a monthly fee, they can watch as many movies as they like – that’ll make up for the drought.
- The Gamer
Gift the gamer in your life something they’ll really appreciate; a subscription to their gaming service of choice. Pair it with the latest big release they’ve had their eye on, or a gaming accessory like a headset, controller, or keyboard and they’ll be disappearing into alternate worlds any chance they can get.
- Musical Maestro
No live gigs, no dance parties – the music lovers have certainly been missing out. Treat them to some ad-free music to listen to while they work, play or keep fit with a subscription to a music streaming service like Spotify or Joox.
You can find physical gift cards for most of these services in a host of stores around the country, just look near the tills. For gamers, most gaming stores will help you with vouchers and codes, and most of them are also available at online retailers.
Just because we may not be able to be together doesn’t mean we can’t give someone a meaningful gift to show them how much we appreciate them.
