Your Yuletide wish list from Poetry
Posted: 15 December 2017
That time of year has come around again. We’re in the thick of the festive rush and the gift-giving season is well underway. The best part of experiencing Christmas in South Africa is that it’s also the height of summer – the sun is out, days are longer and the beach beckons. At Poetry, this summer season’s design theme is whimsical encounters and fresh, botanical motifs in a serene palette of blues, aqua, teal and blush pink with accents in gold. Poetry is the ideal gifting destination if you’re shopping for a homemaker, a hostess or someone special who deserves a beautiful treat after a long year. Expect a curated collection of unusual treasures and unique trinkets. Practicality meets exotic expression in block-printed Indian tablecloths, Thai glassware, Vietnamese sea-grass baskets, brightly decorated terracotta planters, and handmade crockery in Portuguese designs and colours. These far-flung finds live happily alongside locally crafted items, such as Kapula candles and ceramics from Bredasdorp, as well as bath-and-body products, candles, diffusers and room sprays, all of which have been produced in South Africa. We’ve picked out a few of our favourite gifting ideas – be inspired and enjoy the shopping experience at Poetry.
