Kemong Mopedi, Deputy Editor

Cielo Voyager bedside pedestal, R4999

“At least twice a week, I visit the Cielo website to check if their Voyager bedside pedestal isn’t on sale by some stroke of luck (chuckles). Two of these pedestals would make the perfect addition to my bedroom — *Singing* Oh Santa, won’t you please hear my cries!”

Maison Francis Kurkdjian l’Homme À la Rose Eau de Parfum, R3 865 

“Life just hasn’t been the same since my friend Marco, a fragrance connoisseur of note, introduced me to the Maison Francis Kurkdjian fragrance range. Unfortunately, adulting responsibilities always win each time I promise to spoil myself with one (chuckles).”

Colleen Hoover – It Ends With Us

“Very few things make me as happy as books do! I’ve heard some amazing things about Colleen Hoover’s It Ends With Us as well as its sequel It Starts With Us. Both storylines sound like the perfect place to escape to these holidays!”

Kelleigh Korevaar, Managing Editor 

Burnt’s Active Jewellery | Paperclip Chain Necklace, R519

gifts WH editors

“There’s nothing worse than arriving for a midday sweat sesh and suffering through your workout knowing your necklace will probably leave the gym a different colour it entered. That’s why Burnt’s Active Jewellery is on my Christmas Wishlist. 100% seat- and waterproof and coated in 18k carat gold – talk about sweating in style.”

Coach Soft Tabby Shoulder Bag, R10 495

gifts WH editors

“2022 has definitely been Coach’s year. When I first walked past this in a store at V&A, I literally stopped in my tracks and had to go in and look at it. It’s simple, elegant, stunning and versatile; the perfect everyday bag!”

Maisonware Mug Warmer, R369

gifts WH editors

“I’m notorious for drinking hot drinks slowly and either abandoning them completely or putting them in the microwave to warm up (and receiving judging stares while I do it). This mug warmer is the solution for all of that, keeping your cuppa the perfect temperature for you! *productivity soars*”

Pia Hammond, Creative Director 

Steffany Roup Chunky Gold Plated Curb Chain, R1890

“The thing I want most is this gold chain from Steffany Roup. I love chunky chains, it’s reminiscent of my old punk days back in the early noughties.”

Philips Essential Air Fryer, R1699

“Everyone is raving about the benefits of an air fryer. Eating fried chicken without oily fingers? Yes please!”

Chamain van Zyl, Digital Editor

Skin Creamery Slow Beauty Collection, R370

“I’m a sucker for beautiful branding, local brands and cruelty-free beauty products. Skincare is very important to me, and I would love to see this collection underneath the tree.”

Garmin Venu® 2 Plus, R8 999

“The watch is elegant and dainty but packs a punch with all the tech specs. To me, the swimming function is the most important part, and the Garmin Venu 2S has all the bells and whistles I want; tracks any workout, menzies, sleep and stress.”

Fairview Beryl Back 2018, R350

“I’ve always had the best memories at Fairview with family and friends. We have a tradition where we celebrate big life events and news with a sweet bottle of wine.  Sharing a glass of Beryl Back with my people at Christmas dinner is the ultimate gift.”

Wanita Nicol, Copy Editor

gifts wh team

“I’m a total magpie when it comes to accessories and all things shiny or sparkly. A current obsession is stacking earrings and rings. This ring is one of the MANY items at Black Betty that I would love to find under my tree.”

Indelicate Wonder Woman Iconic Leggings, R355

“I have so much activewear already that I can’t justify buying more leggings for myself. Hence, I would love to unwrap a pair of themed leggings from Indelicate Clothing.”

Michelle October, Copywriter

Billabong 4/3 Salty Dayz Steamer Wetsuit, R6000

gifts wh team

“As the WH team surfer, I’d be remiss if I didn’t admit I spend most of my downtime looking at surf gear. I’ve become obsessed with this Billabong wetsuit. The neoprene is so light, made from partially recycled materials AND of course the graphic on the sleeves makes me stand out from the crowd. Oh, Santa, won’t you please?!”

Baskiti Hanging Planter, R380

“I’m in the midst of decorating my apartment and would love some decor under the tree. I love this hanging planter because I’m inundated with plants in ugly plastic pots. Giving them a home in this stylish wall hanging would add interest and make the room really pop.”

Gunslinger Longboards Capgun Cruiser, R2612

“When I’m trying to get my steps in, a good way to burn extra kilojoules – and the most fun way for sure – is to cruise around on a board. This locally-maufactured board is made from bamboo, has a stylish deck and is nice and flexible for carving around when the waves are trash.”
