Valentine's gift

Homecooked traditional meal


Instead of going out for dinner on Valentine’s Day, why not cook your partner his favourite traditional meal? You can make him a Cape Malay curry, traditional style chicken or even tripe. Not only will you avoid overcrowded restaurants, but you will also put a huge smile on his face. If you are not the best of cooks, order in some of his favourite foods, and set up a romantic dinner table setting. For dessert, you can make milk tart, koeksisters, or malva pudding.

Graphic boxer shorts


There is not a single man on the planet who does not need boxer shorts. But don’t buy a boring plain pair. Get one with his favourite DC and/or Marvel comic characters or have his favourite catchphrases printed on them.
