It’s the 1st of October which means we’re only 8 weeks away from December. Let that sink in for a minute.
Our favourite online stationery shop, Macaroon, has just launched their gorgeous Christmas range entitled “Give me an African Christmas.” While Macaroon’s offerings aren’t really “tech” related, we can’t help but share a little bit of a love for them. The reason is two fold:
How else are you going to wrap your favourite gadgets up to put under the tree come Christmas?
Sometimes laptop batteries die. Notebooks never switch off.
Macaroon paired up with artist Tracey Paul a while back and the partnership has translated over to the African Christmas build up. There are a host of quirky African animal characters all dressed in their Christmas finery. I immediately identified with Mac the Porcupine! Tracey’s brief from Macaroon co-owner & Design Director, Cheryl Liebenberg was to create characters that looked like they’d popped into a Christmas photobooth filled with fun props. There’s a host of custom African Christmas goodies that you’ll love and the best part? You can customise them! You can purchase Macaroon goodies via the online store or visit their showroom in Greenside.
Which African Christmas item is your favourite? I’m in love with the Christmas cards as post cards idea!
I'd love to chat to you some more.
I usually send out a weekly mailer with a recap of blog posts but also some personal anecdotes. If you want to know about competitions or just catch up in a more personal setting then you might like to receive the mailer.
