Gifts & shopping

From trendy boutique stores selling vintage clothing on upmarket Kloof Street to the expertly hand-crafted African art and curios on Greenmarket Square, shopaholics – and those simply looking for a memento of their visit to Cape Town – are sure to find a treasure to take home.

The V&A Waterfront, which welcomes more annual visitors than any other site in Africa, offers first-class shopping and entertainment. High street fashion retailers such as Versace, Louis Viton, Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger and Gucci line the halls of this shopping Mecca. You also won’t have any trouble finding something for the young ones at toy giant Hamley’s or a timeless jewelry piece for a loved one at Lorraine Efune, Shimansky, Charles Craig or Uwe Koetter.

With so much retail therapy on offer, HME Crafted Holidays would be delighted to design your shopping holiday around your list of preferences.
