GIFT IDEAS FOR CHRISTMAS
Decorative solar glasses
This idea sprang from the great minds of the company Consol Glass (one of the leading companies for glass containers) and is not only extremely environmentally friendly, but also very stylish and perfect to spice up a little bit of the garden or the balcony in summer. Thanks to a small solar panel and solar-powered LED lights in the lid of the glasses, the new bulbs suck on as much sunlight during the day, they still glow after dark for up to 6 hours. With the soft, warm glow to produce them and the beautiful bright colors, they provide an almost magical atmosphere and beautify any outdoor event, be it with a glass of wine on the terrace at garden parties, when camping or even in braai friends.
Price: R120 - R200 Available at: Consol Glass Outlet (Stellenbosch); Montebello Craft Shop (Newlands) and Maddox & Meyer's (Gardens). More information is available on the website at Consol Glass .
