Affordable accessories she'll actually want

Affordable accessories she'll actually want

By Lindo Buthelezi 

So you made it through your Janu-worries and now Valentine’s Day is aiming an arrow at your wallet. Gulp. Fret not, get a head start on organizing potential surprises for bae, future maybe or baby mama, which will blow her away without breaking the bank.

Now I speak on behalf of women everywhere when I say that these are the three things us girls want in a V-day gift:

● Roses and chocolates are swell, but seriously, no girl will say no to a practical gift like a classic timepiece or a case cover for her phone.

● Girls adore cute gifts (like a new handbag) we can brag about to our friends.

● Lastly, girls like options, and that’s where a Superbalist gift voucher comes in handy, which gives us the freedom to shop to our heart’s content.

Otherwise use this little gift guide filled with exceptional, affordable and up-to-the minute accessories that she’ll love, and you’ll love on her, starting at R99.

Bags and Purses Women carry their entire lives in their bags, so treat her to one she’ll be proud to show off.

Belts Every woman knows that a belt worth its weight in gold does wonders to define her shape. So, surprise her to the corset or waist belt she’s always wanted.

Eyewear If you know your girl appreciates a strong dose of shade as well as a regular and fresh update, then a new pair of sunnies or fashion glasses for summer and beyond may well be the best V-day gift for her.

Cell Phone cases Never underestimate the impact of a phone case. It may be ‘small’ but the right one will have maximum impact for a fashion forward girl. Shop these sassy iPhone and Samsung cases from Typo and Hey Casey for the person whose number is always in your recents.

Fragrances Most girls enjoy a bottle of their favourite scent, because not only will it last longer than a box of chocolates but every time she spritzes it’ll serve as a delightful memory of you. With so many designer brands to choose from at such reasonable prices, you may even consider getting her two.

Headwear Play matchy matchy with your girl in trendy New Era baseball caps, or treat her to elegant headwear with a feminine touch.

Jewellery Spoil her to her favourite costume jewellery pieces to complete her everyday and occasions looks. Mix and match to a create the ultimate Valentines package she’ll swoon over.

Watches You can give her the gift of your time as well as a charming piece of arm candy. With the selection of timepieces priced at what your average bunch of roses go for on February 14th, you’re sure to find the perfect gift watch for her.
