Order them a packet of the finest single origin coffee by 3 African Sisters

Instagram @3africansisters

Lets be honest, life’s to short for procaffeination and ordinary coffee and because you and your bru aren’t able to chuckle for hours over a warm cuppa, send him his own sustainable, ethically sourced bag to brew at home and have a Skype sesh sipping on premium beans. There are three options to choose from: Rwanda, Burundi and The DR Congo. Each bag goes for a cool R79.

Order them beautiful blooms from Petal & Post

GOOD NEWS you’ll be able to say I love you with blossoms! The flower markets should be opening on May 4th so this means you can get your bestie beautiful blooms delivered to her front door again! We love these posy arrangements, which you can get delivered weekly for R265! This idea is genius because she’ll hopefully place them next to her bedside and you’ll be the first person she thinks of daily.

A NOTE FROM OUR CEO:⁠ ⁠ Dear customers,⁠ ⁠ I would like to take this time to say a few pertinent things.⁠ ⁠ Firstly I would like to offer our support to the hospitality industry over this period. We empathise with what you are going through and are in the process of developing a set of collaborative initiatives we hope will help, even if just a little bit.⁠ ⁠ We owe many of you our eternal gratitude for helping us build our brand and community over the last four years. If you have initiatives you think we can help support please get in touch!⁠ ⁠ Secondly, UCOOK finds itself in an incredibly privileged position to be able to continue our service during the lock-down. All South African businesses are facing a massive challenge right now. Because we’re able to operate, we’re doing everything we can to help support our suppliers, and all our friends in the restaurant and food industry.⁠ ⁠ Please keep an eye on our media channels this week. We will be publishing our new socially focused business direction, which will prioritise doing what we can to help people over commercial gain! This is a period during which all those who have the opportunity to give of themselves, in any capacity that can assist, should do so.⁠ ⁠ #WeCookThroughThis⁠ ⁠ Thank you for all your support⁠ ⁠ David Torr⁠ UCOOK CEO

There is no wonder this is South Africa’s favourite dinner kit delivery service. They have the freshest ingredients in town! Super yummy and incredibly healthy, just in case your pal is fattening the curve! They’ve just introduced a farmer’s market box- each box is packed with all the best a market has to offer, from the brightest veg, to cheese, meats and everything in between. Every box is a collaborative effort between small-scale farms and food businesses to keep our local food economy alive! For now this specific box is only available for CT residents but there loads more box options to choose from for Joburgers! Medium box goes for R950 and a large box is R1450.

Order them an inspiring novel from Exclusive Books online

Perhaps your sidekick needs a kick in the right direction and wants more bang for her book. Staying motivated through lockdown has been hard-hitting. Well Exclusive Books online has remained open during lockdown and continues to accept orders. Order soon because it will take 6-8 weeks…

We absolutely loved ‘Year of Yes’ by Shonda Rhimes (R226), it will drive you; push you and kind of what we all need to read right now. Another awesome read is ‘Girlboss’ by Sophia Amoruso (R221), which shares how she went from dumpster diving to founding one of the fastest-growing retailers in the world and for some inspiration also try ‘How To Have a Happy Hustle’ by Bec Evans (R231), which shares the secrets of innovation experts and start-up founders to help you make your ideas happen.


Order them the cutest baby grows from His&Herrs


Attention all besties with mamas-to-be this is the perfect service because there an essential item which means there delivering! We recommend this local brand because their quality is exceptional but also their clothes are all gender neutral and they only take 4-5 days to arrive at your front door.

We adore their ribbed onesie at R400 for a two pack and their knit romper at R260. They also sell bibs and beautiful 100% cotton blankets!
