2016 Festive Gift Guide: TFG Online

November 23, 2016   /   bynatalie  / Categories :  Personal, Uncategorized

Christmas. Only a month away! The most wonderful tiiiiime, of the yeeeaaar! A time for good cheer and good food, list making and shopping for the people you love. A time for elaborate gift wrapping and tree decorating. A time I honestly find such so much pleasure in. I really love buying gifts for the special people in my life. It’s one of my three hobbies (other hobbies are eating and drinking, obviously).

Unfortunately this time of year is also normally a time for power walking through packed malls, standing in endless queues, and carpark rage. Let’s face it, we’ve all left our Christmas shopping to the last minute at least once that’s normally when everyone on your shopping list receives a “shower hamper” of some sort. Disappointing!

Shop for everyone you love in one online store with the TFG eMall

So in the spirit of keeping your sanity this festive season, allow me to introduce you to the TFG eMall. It’s a one-stop online shopping platform, where you can shop for everyone on your list, across all 11 TFG stores, in one bag.

Even better, you can buy them an eGift Card, which means they can shop for themselves, across @home, Anatomy, Duesouth, Duesouth Escapes, Fabiani, Foschini For Beauty, hi, Markham, Relay Jeans, Sportscene and Totalsports. And if you have an online shopping-phobic grandma, that’s ok, cause you can sms, email or even print out the eGift Card, and then she can shop in-store once the festive rush is over.

One platform, one basket, one checkout

The great thing about the TFG eMall is that you don’t have to open a thousand accounts and enter your details a thousand times. One eMall, one basket, one checkout. There are even different card designs and you can personalise the message.

My TFG Christmas Box

TFG asked me to curate the ultimate Christmas gift box for me personally, and since I love travelling and entertaining, I chose a selection of tableware and wine tools to take my dinner parties to the next level from @home.

I love white crockery, so the Sahara Dinnerware range from @home is just what I need for my dining room table.

I have a collection of hand-me-down cutlery that is totally mismatched, so this Windsor Cutlery set is on my list.

Any wine lover would be stoked with this Metrokane Rabbit Bar Tool set.

Or this rosegold dipped decanter.

I’d serve up anything on this beautiful leaf platter.

I also chose the perfect travel bag from DueSouth Escapes because travelling often really takes its toll on my luggage!

This travel bag also doubles as a chair - handy!

This travel bag also doubles as a chair – handy!

The Travelite Fort Knox bag from DueSouth Escapes is super light and super sturdy, and the perfect gift for the traveller in your life.
