A “get and keep fit” gift

How about a subscription to an exercise programme by an organisation who is helping a generation to defy the odds, shatter stereotypes and live out their golden years actively.  Silver Fit, a YEI partner, runs both online classes and classes in various venues around the country.  Exercise has so many benefits and the Silver Fit programme has been proven to reduce the risk of falling and fractures, improve the ability to carry out day-to-day activities and increase confidence and independence. 

Wall planting panels

Vertical Veg encourages you to cover your walls with herbs and flowers.  The Vertical Veg planting panels are an awesome gift for the senior who has everything and loves to see colour and life in their space.  They are light-weight, easy to install, manage, maintain and harvest.  Click here to take a look.  Vertical Veg is also running some lovely specials for Black Friday, during the last week of November – on specific items only.

Monthly delivery of flowers

How about a bit of happiness delivered to your door?  Or spoiling a loved one or a favourite 60-plusser with a fresh bunch of flowers every month, or quarterly, from Picked.    Deliveries are on Friday.  Contact Lindsay or Bianca at – Cape Town deliveries only.  A friend of mine receives one each month like clockwork from her sister in the UK and I admire them with envy!  Check out their Instagram and Facebook pages.

A legacy to leave your family

​”Write your own life book” is an online eBook app about your own life story. The platform is created to ask you thousands of questions over multiple Modules that will be made available every month for 12 months – we ask and you answer. You can share the eBook in PDF format (when completed) with your family, grandchildren and friends.   How about buying the popular 12 Month Subscription as a gift for your loved one!

The quintessential gift voucher

And for the quintessential, practical gift voucher.  If you are looking for a gift to send a family member or friend, or wish to give essentials to those in need, look no further.  The new digital gift vouchers from Clicks make it quicker and easier than ever to send money for essential hygiene items, healthcare services and over-the-counter medicines to those who need it most.

Donation to a favourite charity

And last but not least – a  donation to your relative or friend’s favourite charity. For those people you know who really don’t need or want anything, a donation to their favorite charity, made in their name, is an extremely thoughtful and well-received gift.

A gift of an experience

The gift voucher that keeps on giving!  How about a ticket on the Hop On-Hop Off bus?  A real treat, a wonderful day out and a fabulous opportunity to explore your city (Cape Town and Johannesburg).   Or perhaps a Wine Tram ticket is more your thing?  Or a V&A Harbour Cruise, or Canal Cruise?  Or all of the above!   So many different options to choose from!   Click here to take a look at how you can purchase a City Sightseeing gift voucher.

What about the opportunity to look back at more than 100 years of motoring history.  The Franschhoek Motor Museum is open, but you need to make an online booking in advance.  A lovely gift for the gentleman who has everything!
