I love that South Africans are finally jumping on the online store bandwagon. Lately a bunch a unique, boutique-inspired stores have cropped up, each with a selection of proudly South African products. I think there are perfect for buying gifts for friends or family who live in a different city, since you can browse online and have the gift delivered to their door, without having to wait in a queue at the post office. Utique launched a few weeks ago, and they have a wonderful selection of hand-picked gifts and accessories. Here are some of my favourites, why don’t you head over to the website and have a browse?

Around the time of their launch, Utique ran quite a few competitions to win some of their products. I was so happy to hear that I’d won some beautiful jewellery from Two Birds with Some Stones. I loved receiving my parcel in the post, so a big thank you to the team from Utique, and to Sarah from The Angelheaded Hipster for running the competition. If you like the earrings and necklace, you can head on over to the Utique website to order them! They are so versatile, I’ve been wearing mine non-stop since I got them!
