Each time the Christmas season approached, my ex Johann and I thought we had things waxed when it came to present shopping. We would leave things until (almost) the last minute and then execute our rather nifty plan.
We would hit Sandton City, gift list firmly in hand. There we would head straight to the Body Shop store and pick out the various gift combinations. Having achieved our objective, we would leave the staff to gift wrap the items while we headed off for a leisurely breakfast.
Done! Christmas shopping, including gift wrapping, taken care of. Love it when a plan comes together!
But now Red Square has gone one step further, with their #ItsAWrap service. So when they challenged me to give it a try, I was super keen!
The thing is the Red Square gift wrapping service, available at all 47 stores nationwide, now also extends to items purchased from their on-line store. Man, that is a solution that really speaks to me! Now you can order any item on-line and have it delivered, within the borders of South Africa, gift wrapped and ready for Christmas!
So, if like me you have family spread across South Africa, this is for you. The gifts you carefully select, from the comfort of your home while shopping on-line, can now arrive just in time for Christmas, gift wrapped and ready to be placed under the Christmas tree. Even if you are not there!
Travelling to your holiday destination this year and fast running out of packing space? Not a problem, Red Square has you covered. Shop for all your presents on-line before you leave and have your gifts meet you there, gift wrapped and ready for the 25th!
Shopping on-line with Red Square really couldn’t be easier! So what did I choose from the amazing selection online? Unwrap my goodies with me.
Filorga Time-Filler Mat – I am a huge Filorga fan, so I decided with the big 40 fast approaching, I would take all the help I could get from Red Square. With Botox-like peptides to help improve fine lines and wrinkles, Time-Filler Mat is a winner in my books. It also helps to control shine and minimize pore size.
Antonio Banderas The Golden Secret EDT – a new take on The Secret fragrance introduced in 2010, this new fragrance works well as an everyday scent with its unique, cedar-infused base notes.
Elizabeth Arden Green Tea Cherry Blossom EDT – it wouldn’t be Christmas without the sharing of gifts, so I decided on this refreshing Green Tea fragrance for my mom. A fresh, summer fragrance just in time for the holiday season!
Be sure to order before 12pm on Saturday, 19 December 2015, to ensure your gifts arrive on time.
