We are now in October, the gift giving occasions have come and past, except one big event, Christmas is upon us!
For some of the early birds out there, the time to start gift hunting is upon us. You may need some ideas as to what to get for those picky family members or people you just can't imagine gift giving.
Every Christmas at Batenburgs, we are asked by customers what's the best present to give loved ones based on age, gender and favourite type of alcohol.
When it comes to gift buying for Women, people struggle, especially the men. Growing up, I would always resort to buying my Mother and Sister standard scented candles, books or pamper kits until I got older and realised my originality had expired and I needed to branch out my gift giving ideas.
In search of gifts for the women in my life, I have always found that good wine goes off without a hitch, even better when you're the son of a wine mum. Fine skin care is also one the ladies love and also never forget a side of the best chocolate one can find, a sneaky after dinner treat to indulge in with a glass of wine.NZ Well-being Gift
