Everyone loves the twinkling lights, the festively decorated living rooms, spirited gift-giving and the mouth-watering smells coming from the kitchen over the festive season. Delivering a magical Christmas for your family doesn’t have to be stressful because Woolworths has everything you need to make the festive season the most wonderful (and easy) time of the year.

Discover Woolies’ stunning, innovative range of festive goodies that covers all your gifting needs, mouth-watering food for the table, treats for every moment, the latest in holiday fashion and beauty, and some wonderful ways to freshen up your décor for the festive season.

Bring Christmas cheer into your home seamlessly with our new eco-friendly LED Christmas lights (including pineapple fairy lights), snowflake tree decorations, Christmas wreathes, a reindeer snow globe, and unique Advent calendars (including one from WBeauty). For your Christmas table start with Woolies Christmas crackers, which are indulgent delights in 100% recyclable packaging, and then add elf & antler alice bands, a Wonderland swan, and a chocolate Santa for some fun. Spoil your little ones with beautiful Christmas stockings made locally by graduates of the Township Fleva skills development programme which develops unemployed youth through skills training, education and access to health care.

For those special Christmas meals there’s always the spectacular range of high quality Woolies foods for every palate. To add some spice to your holiday food gifting you can give locally-made Christmas Hot Peri Peri sauce, spicy pork crackling or our legendary savoury biscuit selection with some magnificent cheeses.

A meal preparation essential is the full-flavoured Favolosa, a single varietal olive oil produced by Morgenster Estate, which is delicious paired with bold dishes. For the sweet tooth, end off with some XXL braai marshmallows. The Astoria Luxury Prosecco, in a gold bottle, will look and taste great, as will the Tranquille Blush which also comes in magnum.  

Whether you’re celebrating Christmas at home or out of town, treats are a must and no one does memorable eating and gifting moments quite like Woolworths, like beautifully designed tins of chocolate peanut brittle, Turkish delight and panned nuts. Or try UTZ certified luxury chocolates, a three-piece nougat box, delicious locally-sourced, badger-friendly honey, and an eye-catching keepsake fudge tin.

Or maybe a selection of delicious crunchies, a tin of Viennese biscuits, Pannetone-inspired rusks made from stone-ground flour in Wellington, or a jar of fig & pecan biscuits.

Some of the many other superb gifting options for her include WBeauty products (approved by Beauty Without Cruelty) like the WBeauty liquid eyeshadow 4-pack in a glittery cracker; and the Unwind body butter trio gift set. Or choose from the Longmarket Classic three-piece wrapped soap set JT ONE advent calendar, and the holiday-ready Heatwave gift box.

Gifts for him include the Longmarket Barber or the Marrakech gift sets, or wines like Rupert & Rothschild Classique and The Chocolate Block which are both available in the (very gift worthy) magnum format. And don’t forget the special pet treat tin or a dog countdown calendar as a gift for your ‘best friend’. Whatever you choose, use our beautiful gift wrap printed with eco-friendly ink on responsibly sourced paper. And if you’re not sure about what to buy, you can always opt for a convenient gift card.

Fashion accessories are always a win. Who would turn down a new beach bag, a pair of espadrilles or a holiday cocktail dress to party the summer nights away?

The fashion trends for the season include a more femme aesthetic with florals, stripes and polka dots. The introduction of lilacs into the spring palette is a key catwalk colour for the season and sets the pastels tone for the summer. Expect to see flowing, easy dresses and blouses in rayons, georgettes and chiffons, as Woolies explores the global trend towards femininity for SS19. The key items for this season include the shirt dress, the volume sleeve top, and slogan t-shirts. And for a more relaxed feel this holiday season, the jogger or paper bag pant are must-haves on your wish list. Woolworths is sure to put the sparkle and shine back into your festive shopping experience.

Be sure to take the stress out of your Christmas holiday experience this year by shopping at your local Woolies. Everything you want (and need) is all there, in one place. All festive goodies are available from November onwards in stores countrywide or visit www.woolworths.co.za to shop online.
