A Take Charge Purse

This collection of luxury, genuine leather handbags, purses, and tablet envelopes is a must for any gadget queen or king. Designed & crafted in Cape Town, South Africa and equipped with a built-in power bank, Take Charge bags are compatible with all modern smartphones from the iPhone 5 upward & any micro-USB port devices (Samsung, BlackBerry, etc). The power bank allows you to fully charge your phone or tablet at least once before having to charge the power bank itself and the slim battery design has been cleverly placed in a secret slip pocket inside the bag, keeping it safe, sound & out of the way. Genious!

Fuchsia & Cream Purse Take Charge

We love the Fuchsia & Cream purse (R799) pictured above for the ladies, but the online store also has some fabulous brown leather tablet envelopes that are bound to make any man swoon. Click here to shop now.

A gift card from The Laser Beautique

Of course, chocolates and flowers are always a sure bet when it comes to gifting but for something really special consider a pampering treat that will leave them feeling incredible and oh-so-relaxed! From a luxurious manicure or pedicure (with free nail art during the month of February) for her to the Couple’s Promotion Package (R400) with bubbly pedis for you both to share, the options are endless. We love the sound of the couple’s promo as it gets you a gent’s pedicure and a luxury pedicure and free nail art for the lady, all whilst sipping on champagne. You can also ramp up this couple’s experience with a paraffin dip (R70 per person) for extra soft skin or head, neck & shoulder massages (R100 per person).
