The Baskiti Braai Bag
Local brand, The Baskiti Co., has launched their Baskiti Braai Bag for Father’s Day! Locally handmade from 100% leather, with two brass rings to perfectly hang from their J-Hooks and pockets designed for items such as tongs, firelighters, matches, a marinate brunch etc. – The Baskiti Braai Bag is a must for anyone. Aesthetically pleasing and practical, it ticks all the boxes for mom and dad, because lets be honest – braai tools and accessories have never been beautiful, but with The Baskiti Braai Bag it can be. Fold it up, tie is closed and pop it in the car for your next road trip or weekend away!

In addition to the Baskiti Braai Bag, The Baskiti Co. has also launched their larger-than-normal 100% leather Toiletry Bag. Handmade using a soft, but durable leather, with a waterproof liner and a YKK Zip, this is the toughest, most beautiful toiletry bag there ever has been. It’s time dad has his own special bag, big enough for his beard oil, comb and electric toothbrush. He is tired of sharing with mom and the kids!

The Cotton Company’s Waffle Weave in Slate
Lightweight, generously sized and ever-so-soft, these Turkish cotton waffle-weave towels are just the thing to get dad for Father’s Day this year. The honeycomb weave is both breathable and super absorbent, made with OEKO TEX certified yarn. It rolls up small, making it great to take with you on any outdoor adventure. We love the Slate in both the towel and hand towel. You also have the option of personalizing your gift with an embroidered name for a small additional fee.

Lulu & Marula Cleansing Balm for him!
Lulu & Marula’s balancing cleansing balm is a luxurious facial cleanser that melts between your fingertips as you massage over your skin. With oil-to-milk technology, it effectively removes daily impurities to leave skin clean, soft and glowing. The nutrient-rich Marula Oil and Vitamin E protect your skin’s natural moisture barrier while imparting anti-oxidant properties. Bentonite adds an extra detoxifying element while Sweet Orange, Bergamot and Neroli essential oils warm your spirit, creating the ultimate skin cleansing ritual.
Can be used twice a day, morning and night, by massaging a small amount between fingertips until it melts and applying it over the face in small circular movements focusing on areas where the skin feels congested. When rinsed with warm water or wiped gently with a warm, damp cloth it turns milky, washing away impurities leaving the skin cleansed and refreshed.
Price: R340 excludes delivery
