Your Weekly Joburg Guide 
What are you getting up to this December?

‘Tis the season to be shopping, tra la la la la, la la la la. Yes, we have Christmas carols ringing in our ears, but you can’t blame us, the jingling tunes and lyrics are really catchy. Admit it, you did sing along to that line as you read it. Since it’s the happy holidays, we’d like to wish you all a wonderful, jolly and merry festive season. We hope you enjoy our cheerful edition.

Speaking of the holidays, it’s time to get down to the nitty gritty task of gift shopping. We know the massive queues are annoying, but the patience is worth it in the end. If you’re in search of the perfect gift for a gadget loving fundi, then make sure you enter our Gadget Shop competition. We have five Revell Backflip 3D Drones up for grabs. Enter here.

And to get the festivities rolling (it is the party season after all), American Whiskeys by Distilled Spirits USA has just the spirit for any occasion. They also have the perfect coolers, low-cal delights and spicy festive cocktail recipes you need to try. Check them out here. Just remember to drink responsibly.

New year, new you? How about new year, new home? There’s no time like the present to give your home a little sprucing here and there. Keeping up with seasonal trends, decor, accessories has never been easier, thanks to the MRP App. You don’t even have to leave your home.


And now for our Top 5 recommendations for this week:


Kicking off December on an artsy note, First Thursdays is here offering free art viewings in Braam and Rosebank.

If you’re into golf, then you’ll be happy to hear that the Joburg Open is on from Thursday to Sunday at Randpark Golf Club.
