I’m excited to share some of my top picks for Christmas gifting ideas, as well as style tips to glam up your festive season wardrobe!

As Christmas draws near, there is still a little bit of time left to do your festive shopping and spoil your loved ones (or even yourself) at Constantia Village – my favourite one-stop-shop. I can get my groceries, gifts and a little something for my wardrobe, all in one go.

Little House Boutique is perfect for just this as they stock an array of beautiful items from local suppliers such as smellies for your home, kitchen décor, scarves and accessories for your friends and family, to stylish dresses and bags for yourself to freshen up your holiday wardrobe.

Ladies, dresses are a hot trend for summer and I love the idea of finally being able to get out of my sweats (I’m sure I’m not alone when I say it was a go-to staple during lockdown) and into something more feminine and pretty to get into the holiday spirit. Without a doubt, one of my preferred dress styles has to be the classic shirt dress. Here, Little House Boutique in Constantia Village has them in prints as well as plain linen.

Style Tip: Remember to team a plain coloured dress with a printed scarf to add some flair.

Another shop I love visiting Constantia Village is definitely Via Veneto for their incredible and different assortment of upmarket shoes imported from Europe! I cannot recommend them enough.

These stunning Via Veneto tan platforms will pair beautifully with the classic shirt dress or even jeans on a cooler day. They are extremely comfortable and give some nice height without being too formal in comparison to a stiletto.

Happy shopping and remember to stay safe!
