There are some friends that we know so well when it comes to gifts. You can spot the perfect gift for them immediately. I’ll be strolling through a shop or scanning the Instagram feed, notice something, and think “oooh, Jill will love that”!
It’s fun finding the perfect gift for a friend. Jill and I randomly buy each other gifts throughout the year not only on our birthdays or during the festive season. This way we’re not just buying for the sake of it but rather when we find just the right thing.
Here are a few suggestions for gifts available on Equilibrio. Hopefully a few are just right for a special person in your life:
FOR THE FUNKY FRIEND
Most of us have that funky friend, the one who wears things that you love but wonder if you can pull off. She’s bold, bright and fun, and is always good for a laugh. Here are a few perfect gift ideas for her.
FOR THE FRIEND THAT NEEDS A TIME-OUT
Votivo candles and room scents are synonymous with fashion. They have been working with different designers at New York Fashion Week for years from Charlotte Ronson and Nicholas K to Nicole Miller and Vivienne Hu to bring an added sensory element to a collection’s debut. Equilibrio also teamed up with Gert-Johan Coetzee at SA Fashion Week to scent his runway show earlier this year.
Why not gift a fashionable friend who needs a “time-out” one of these amazing scents. The Red Current scent is rich and invigorating, the Grey Vetiver is woody and sultry. Available in various candles, diffusers and even car scents.
FOR THE EARTH CONSCIOUS FRIEND
Natural fabrics are often more expensive, but they are also biodegradable and earth-friendly. Natural linen, Tencel (produced from sustainably sourced wood) and Rayon (from wood and agricultural products) are breathable fabrics, that wash well and won’t pollute the planet. These are all made in limited quantities in small factories.
FOR THE FRIEND WHO LOVES LUXURY
This selection is for the friend who loves a bit of bling or perhaps the luxury of silk. The scarves were designed and inspired with images taken right here in Jozi. The jewellery is by the fabulous and internationally acclaimed Kirsten Goss.
