Quirky, Sexy, Cool Last-minute Christmas Gifts

Festive gift and experience ideas

 

Last Update:  10 December 2019

Even the best among us sometimes leave our gift shopping a little late. Sometimes the best gifts aren’t things at all but experiences; and they make for easy gifts when you’re short on time, especally when you can book them all online.

READER DISCOUNT ON OCEAN ADVENTURE
You can spot seals, penguins, sunfish, whales and dolphins on the Ocean Safari run by Ocean Experiences, who guide top-rated ocean adventures. You have the choice of the 1.5 hour or shorter Table Bay Safari (45m, also good cause it allows kids from 5 years old), and you can get them at dicounted prices when you book the Ocean Safari using this deals page. It's a bucket-list-worthy experience that anyone of any fitness level can enjoy. Watch for more more awesome boat trips in Cape Town.

MEMBERSHIP TO A MODERN ART JEWEL
It’s fitting for a modern art museum to be housed inside an architectural masterpiece. That’s what the converted grain silos at the V&A Waterfront have become. With nine floors spanning 6 000 square metres, you need some time to see everything at the Zeitz Museum of Contemporary Art Africa (Zeitz MOCAA). Different tiers of membership offer you benefits like unlimited admission, preferential queue at the entrance, special member events such as talks and tours, extended opening hours, and more. Buy a membership online.
Price: R290–R10 000

V&A Waterfront, Silo District, South Arm Road, +27(0)87 350 4777, info@zeitzmocaa.museum 

LIGHT UP THE TREE WITH A DIAMOND
It’ll be hard to find something that sparkles more than Shimansky’s patented My Girl™ diamond. The unique eight-sided square displays a diamond-shaped table, which is most visible when moving the diamond under light. While the majority of diamond cuts reflect light from the top of the stone, the My Girl diamond sparkles from every angle, displaying a perfect balance of scintillation, fire and brilliance.
