There are only a few weeks (days / hours / minutes – depending on when you’re reading this) ’til Christmas, and we’re not panicking, YOU ARE. Okay, we are too. Which is why we sat down and came up with our very own Christmas Gift Guide: ENTERTAINER edition. So basically, if you have the app, you’re sorted for this festive season. And if you don’t, keep reading, because we have a solution for that, too 😉
Take a peek at our (brilliant and inexpensive) Christmas Gift Guide:

You can never go wrong with food, amiright? Treat your friends to a lekker lunch, brekkie, or dinner at one of these spots. Not only are you feeding your loved ones, you’re also giving them the gift of your time. Two birds, one stone.

6 | SKINCARE
Skincare products should be on every Christmas Gift Guide, if you ask us (even though no one did). The skin is the body’s largest organ, and it should be treated with respect, and slathered with mud masks and moisture-rich creams.

And finally, let’s talk about the gift that keeps on giving: the ENTERTAINER 2020. The app is filled with thousands of 2-for-1 offers, so your friends and fam can save moolah at some of the best bars, restaurants, spas, gyms, and so much more across SA. Read all about it here.
