A Bespoke Gift for Someone Special, No.11 in our series #romancingthehome


It’s that time of year when Christmas shopping begins, but what do you get that special friend or family member that has just about everything?

Personalizing a gift is a beautiful way to show someone how important they are in your life.

#romancingthehome challenge this week was to come up with a special gift/s that might help our readers with some ideas of their own.

In this blog, I have put together three very special and feminine gifts that are sure to make whoever is receiving them feel extra special.

My first gift a bespoke G&T with a beautiful gold geometric planter/lantern.

You can buy these small Musgrave Pink gin at any bottle store for around R35. I have seen a more masculine version of this too Musgrave 11

A good quality gin is meant to be had with quality tonic Fever Tree Tonic is available at Woolies and

come in many flavours. The bottles are perfect for such a gift.

The Prism lanterns can double up as a container for the gift. You can find similar to this at Mr Price

Gift Vlaue: Between R350 – R550 depending on the size planter/lantern you choose

Morrells Boutique Estate is by far my most favourite spot in all of Jozi! It a place that is full of magic and wonder, a little piece of France in Johannesburg.

Morrells has the most beautiful little french styled shop La Maison De La Morrells 

It is filled with treasures from near and Far and I could just spend hours there exploring and soaking up all the beauty!

Morrells has a beautiful range of bath products as well as room and pillow mist. Their pillow mist is one I can not live without, my favourite is the Wild Olive & Lavender range. The fragrance is so delicately opulent when I lay my head on the pillow and fall asleep to this beautiful sent…what more can I say. Pure luxury.

For this very reason, I choose these luxury products to spoil not only myself by a very special friend. Morrells was also gracious enough to allow me to review their products in my own home.

Bernice Morrells owner of Morrells Boutique Estate handpicks each and every item that grace the walls and floors of Morrells and this range is of no exception.

The Romantic fragrance of Morrells is emanant in this range and it’s like taking a little piece of Morrells home with you.

Morrells is well known for is beautiful Olive grove surrounded by lavender and bearded iris. You can stroll through the gardens and just imagine you were in an old town somewhere in France.

A little spray on my pillow and I am transported to this magical garden.
