2021 has been a year of learning and growth. What seemed to matter so much before no longer bears the same significance.  We’ve turned our focus to prioritising health and wellness, connection with loved ones, community, and making conscious decisions for the betterment of our environment and the future. While Christmas has always been a time for love, laughter, festivity and appreciation, this year we are even more inspired to create and celebrate moments that truly matter.

This festive season, Woolworths gives you perfect solutions for all your holiday and gifting needs, offering you the world of choice in fabulous food, homeware, beauty and fashion, while enabling you to make sustainable choices, to give back and make a difference.

 

BEAUTY:

Treat someone special with our range of indulgent beauty spoils.  All WBeauty products as well as the Woolworths Bath & Body Collection are 100% vegan and endorsed by Beauty without Cruelty. The formulations of this years’ Christmas gifting range are locally derived and made from sustainably sourced ingredients – supporting local and taking care of you and the planet at the same time.  The WBeauty Skincare Mask trio set, Hand & Nail Gift set and Nail polish Trio sets will bring the salon into your home this year. Nothing says you care more than our curated luxury bath sets; in Coco Breeze and Summer Crush. The range also includes bath salts, a shower smoothie, shower oil, marshmallow body cream and a granita scrub – there’s so many options for stocking fillers or building your own luxury at home spa experience.

 

HOME:

Give your home a celebratory look, with our magnificent range of Christmas decor. Brilliantly bold blues, greens, dashes of turquoise and red, with elegant touches of gold and silver in both matte and lustrous shine bring Christmas sparkle to the range of crackers, baubles and tree ornaments. Our Christmas crackers are locally made, and the packaging is FSC-certified and made from fully recyclable materials. What’s more, by buying our Christmas crackers, you’re contributing towards food safety, with a portion of the proceeds going towards alleviating hunger.

Unconventionally shaped decorative LED lights, ornamental animals and Christmas wreaths come together to create the perfect festive fusion. Our LED Christmas lights are made sustainably, last longer than regular lightbulbs, and are packaged with easily recyclable materials. For the final touch of Christmas charm, add some fabulous foliage or a dash of greenery to your living space.

 

FASHION:

Before gathering around the tree on Christmas morning, make sure you look the part with Woolies’ wide range of super fun Christmas themed sleepwear and accessories. What’s Christmas morning without matching pj’s? We’ve got the whole family covered with an adorable selection of kids and baby wear, complete with tutus, reindeer headbands, masks and the cutest reindeer novelty slippers.

 

FOOD:

Food is the heart of any celebration, and makes for a grand gift, too.  A wide selection of delicious biscuits will leave you spoilt for choice – Chuckles Malted Biscuits are light, crisp malted biscuits enrobed in milk chocolate, taking an old favourite and giving it a delicious twist. We’ve also partnered with local photographers on selected products, to create packaging with imagery inspired by nature, including local flora. The vibrant artworks enrich their surroundings and spark constructive dialogue, while the vessel it embellishes houses delectable treats like triple chocolate chunkie biscuits, and milk chocolate bottom enrobed shortbread, all made with responsibly sourced cocoa. All our biscuits are locally baked, and our extra-special shortbread is made with butter for a rich, caramelised flavour. 

Make some magical memories with Easy to Bake biscuit decoration kits – our royal icing is made with free range eggs. The Kids Biscuit Kit with Starfish Cookie Cutter is a good way to get kids involved – its azo dye and tartrazine free. On the subject of DIY, you’ll love our DIY kits for making your own meals and desserts, complete with easy, step by step instructions. Create your own burgers, soft cheese, flavoured breads, and sweeten the moment with chocolate brownies and milk tart dessert. 

In the truest spirit of togetherness, Woolies continues their endeavour to nurture local talent and promote sustainable living. The Easy to Bake, yeast-free pizza kit comes with a pizza board, locally made from sustainably sourced pine. The Easy To Bake Zucchini Savoury Muffins are housed in a handwoven basket created by Gone Rural, a socially responsible business that focuses on preserving Swazi artisanal craft, whilst committing to ongoing community development and the use of responsible and renewable raw materials. Each ceramic wreath bread dish has been handcrafted by a young artisan from Macassar pottery – helping them secure an income, while the artwork on our Cheese Making Kit packaging is made from recycled plastic. All these relationships are in-keeping with Woolworths’ ongoing commitment to empower local communities and promote sustainable development, as well as the move to greener living. 

If you are stuck on what to gift this year, Woolies has a range of foodie gifts, including beautifully bottled vinegars, oils, preserves, seasoning and condiments are perfect as add-ins under the tree. Many of the products in this category are locally handmade, adding that special touch. 

Nothing seals a celebration quite like a bottle of bubbly. You could also opt for an afternoon mocktail with the Abstinence Cape Citrus Non-Alcoholic Spirit. Or something a little smoother, like the Woolworths Signature Vintage Reserve Cap Classique – it’s our premium Cap Classique, a 2013 vintage made by Villiera. 

 

KIDS:

While there are many great joys about Christmas, nothing quite compares to the way it lights up the heart of a child. Make sure it’s extra special for the kids this year, with the Chuckles Countdown Calendar, super sweet treats, Christmas themed melamine dinnerware, brightly coloured crackers and kiddie Christmas décor. And for those who’ve been extra nice this year, a pick from the range of adorable soft toys will be a welcomed surprise.

 

GIFT WRAP:

And once you’ve chosen the perfect gifts, wrap them all up in love and care, with Woolies’ gift bags and gift wraps – we even have them available in fabric! Brightly coloured and beautifully themed, all our gift bags and locally made gift wraps are made from FSC® certified paper that comes from responsibly managed forests.
