Handmade Young Entrepreneurs Gifts

The MarketPlace•Shop supports artists and artisans from around the country who have turned a hobby into a small business. Many of our suppliers are young entrepreneurs who are making money from their passion and have grown a small idea into a big business.

We promote small businesses that create beautiful handmade products that make ideal gifts. They’re more personal and creative than the mass-merchandised products you get in the shops and each sale supports a small business.


The best gift ideas for young entrepreneurs


Young entrepreneurs are driven, passionate go-getters. They’re busy people and need to be confident and healthy to run their businesses efficiently. We’ve come up with a few items that make great gifts for young entrepreneurs.


Organic body scrub

A lovely smelling body scrub is the perfect gift for busy entrepreneurs. It contains essential oils and exfoliants that remove dead skin cells and hydrate your skin.

A good quality organic body scrub leaves you feeling refreshed, removes blemishes and smooths rough-looking skin. Using an organic body scrub on a regular basis will invigorate your body and mind.


Handmade soaps

Choose a soap made with essential oils that have natural healing powers to refresh and invigorate tired bodies. Essential oils are extracted from scented flowers and contain high concentrations of natural oil that refresh and invigorate your skin and senses.

The most popular essential oils used in handmade soaps come from lavender, rosemary, lemons and oranges, cedarwood and the peppermint plant.


Body butter

A glorious skin moisturizer that contains a vegetable-based oil such as cocoa butter, shea butter or coconut oil. It’s thicker than ordinary skin lotions and works wonders to heal problem patches like dry, scratchy elbows and knees.

Cocoa butter is high in antioxidants which help fight off free-radical damage to your skin. The rich moisturising butter is good for sensitive skin and helps reduce skin blemishes, stretch marks and scars.


Beard balm

A conditioner that you leave on that moisturisers, conditions, softens and helps style your beard. Most beard balms contain shea butter which is a sweet almond oil that helps boost growth as well as a protectant such as beeswax which helps seal in the moisture.


An inspirational coffee mug

Find a quality coffee mug with an inspirational saying to remind the special young entrepreneur in your life how special they are.


Snack pack

Something delicious and healthy for a busy person on the run filled with farm-fresh produce like nuts, biltong and dried fruit.

Snacks at the right time of the day are good for you. They provide a much-needed energy boost in the middle of the day or after you’ve exercised. Healthy snacks are higher in fibre than processed junk food which means they decrease your hunger and help stop you from overeating at mealtimes.


A decent notebook

Find one with an inspiring handmade cover that looks good in any boardroom. Notepads are also fantastic promotional giveaways. Rather than buying the boring type you get in stationary shops, why not give your client a handmade notebook that’s unique and is made with care and attention.


Potted plant

Studies have shown that plants in an office help to improve the quality of air in the room and increases productivity. Office plants help clean the air by removing harmful pollutants such as carbon monoxide.
