Humans are odd creatures. One minute we are solitary, capable of caring for ourselves, the next, we are dependent on social interaction to stimulate our minds, nurse our emotions and, above all, feel part of humanity.
As we’re heading into the festive season, it’s important that you realise you’ll be spending so much more time with other people, but it’s as important to take a step back every now and then to spend time with yourself.
Last week Makro launched their new festive season liquor catalogue, and as odd as it sounds, the catalogue is a great starting point to plan the next few months of your life and ensure you cater to your social needs as well as yourself. Christmas dinners and New Year parties are nothing without ludicrous amounts of bubbly to share with friends and family, or some wine to share around the braai, or coolers to have around the pool – get ideas in the catalogue.
While the booklet makes it easy to plan social occasions, why not indulge and buy yourself a special bottle to have during quieter moments? If you get SABC COO-like bonuses, exclusive to Makro this year you can pick up a The Glenfiddich 50YO single-malt worth R650 000.
One lucky connoisseur can get a R730 000 bottle of Balvenie 50YO single-malt whisky in a collector’s tube. If that doesn’t say love yourself, what does? Use catalogues in the next months to track spending, plan your budget and get an idea of what you want this festive season. Happy shopping.
