Our latest article for YOU magazine, we got asked to write something on gifts for girls. We hope this helps! “YOU magazine – “Gifts for her”

With Christmas fast approaching and panic setting in to find the right gift for the right person, The Perfect Proposal has a few suggestions. Here’s what she’ll love this Christmas:

  1. Nail treatments

Women love having their nails done, being pampered and having that time out. You just can’t go wrong with a gift card for her favourite spa or if she’s a working women and can’t take time out at the end of the year call on Fox Box.

They come to you at work – she can have her nails done in her lunch break! Perfect for women on the go (

  1. Shop online

Avoid crazy, last-minute shopping and sit back, relax and order online. For heels, handbags and local design – click your way through to or spoil her by ordering one bespoke piece from her favourite online shop. Make sure you get her correct size and know what she has her eye on. When that package arrives, trust us, she’ll want it to fit.

3. Shop local

If you’re in Cape Town diarise this! Sam opens up shop in Bree Street this month and you’ll be able to shop for beautiful designer pieces and one-of a-kind luxury goods. You’ll love the store-within-a-store concept and she’ll be super impressed you have your finger on the pulse of fashion. Sam goes online and on the street soon, and if its décor, furniture, fashion, stationery or jewellery the lady in your life is after – pop in here (!

4. Our First Baby Box

Do you have a friend, sister or wife who’s about to have a baby? Well this lovely gift is for her! We’ve created our first Baby Box for moms-to-be.

We’ve put together some divine products to spoil her. From spa treatments, to sweet treats and body care, it will make her feel relaxed, special and beautiful before the baby arrives. It’s as pretty as it is practical. (

5. Perfume

Every woman loves smelling beautiful and while it may not be the most original gift idea, it certainly is most often a well-received one. Personalise the experience by taking her to the Jo Malone tasting bar experience and yes, it’s totally complimentary. Enjoy a glass of bubbles or coffee and treats (make sure you pre-book for this) and you can select a fragrance from the tasting bar menu. You get a hand and arm massage and leave smelling beautiful!

If fragrance isn’t her thing but she loves make-up – book a session at MAC where you’ll receive a lesson in what works best for your face, and have a makeover.

We also have our eye on MAC’s Rihanna holiday collection – treat her to an in-store experience and spoil her to a few key products.
