Every year it seems like Christmas gets closer and closer, and December seems to disappear without warning. Before we know it, it’s a few days before the big day and our gift cache is looking too meager for our liking.
So here is my solution: buy online through Takealot!
But not at the last minute… start browsing today! Every day, they post their daily deals that have an average of around 40% discount. But if you buy several gifts at once, you can score free delivery and make several other key savings too…
USE THE WISH LIST
If you’re not the impulsive type, and don’t want to buy on the spot - you can still save and make some excellent gift choices. Take a few days to browse, starting today, and then add the ideas you have to your online Takealot wish list. This is a super way to compare gift options and then increase your cart to avoid paying for delivery.
After you’ve taken the next few days to build up your wish list, check back in on Friday and check out your final choices. All things being equal, your delivery will arrive early the following week - without you having to go anywhere!
BUY FOR MORE THAN R250
If your cart total is higher than two-hundred and fifty rand, you will save yourself R65 or more on delivery. But - you will also save on not having to drive to the shops, spending an hour or more in the different stores and then having to pay for parking!
If you’re buying for several people, you’ll easily cap this amount and save yourself money and the time and stress of December fever.
CHECK DAILY DEALS… DAILY

Visit every day if you are a prolific bargain hunter! From coffee makers, cast iron cookware and binoculars, to fashion, sports, tech and toys - this page will certainly not disappoint. But remember, you have to buy on the day and ensure you spend over R250.
There are several other reputable online shopping options for South Africans, but I’ve found Takealot to have the quickest delivery time, which - in December - is crucial!
