Cape Town Shopping Indoors for Outdoor-Inspired Gifts at ‘Just Like Papa’

Every minute of the time you spend at any Self-Catering Accommodation in Cape Town is precious…

While the Mother City is a mecca of shopping, don’t waste any of it wandering from store to store in search of gifts for friends and family back home. Save time by heading straight to the motherlode of high-quality and unique items in Harrington Street.

For added convenience, this emporium of fascination is open until 7pm every week night for those who tend to leave things until the last minute.

It’s the go-to place for nature enthusiasts looking for the latest gadgets and gear to brave the great outdoors. You’ll also find a smattering of the latest lifestyle essentials that everyone who’s anyone simply must have.

Here’s a snapshot of what you can expect to find within:

Boy Toys

At first glance Just Like Papa seems to be all about survival in the wild, from handcrafted axes to slick pocket knives. You’ll also find customised baseball bats, electric bikes, New Era caps, Osprey backpacks, watches, Go-Pros, watches, water bottles and Zippo lighters.

A fold-up Ammo box braai brings the bling to any camping expedition along with an MSR-designed two-man tent with its compact geometric design and oodles of headroom. A 1600 lumens flashlight with a beam that reaches up to 2 000 feet away completes the picture.

Foodie Fascinations

You’ll love popcorn even more when it’s made in an authentic stove or grill top popcorn popper from leading designer Jacob Bromwell.

A stovetop 4 cup expresso-maker or handpresso pump is the perfect gift for a coffee-loving friend. How about a camping set of plates, mugs and bowls? Not only are they good enough for every day or outdoor use, but they all fit magically into 2 Teflon coated pots. At Just Like Papa you will find everything you need to brew the perfect cuppa during a mountain-climbing expedition.

On a More Refined Note

The lissom lines of the Kaweco classic sport Bordeaux fountain pen or butch bullet-casing of the Fisher 338 cartridge space pen are enough to inspire even the most reluctant author. Add to that a collection of top-notch notebooks and you have everything you need to pen your memoirs in style.

Top Gear

Winter woollies never looked this good. A tailored and sophisticated range of denims and sweat shirts lines the shelves, while you can bet you never thought socks could look so swish.

An Experience in Itself

The interiors of Just Like Papa’s are designed to resemble the rib cage of some giant mythical beast, creating an other-worldly experience when you step through the doors.

It’s a fascinating place to browse and buy some of the best quality gifts in Cape Town. Pop in after a day enjoying the sights of nearby District Six en route back to your self-catering accommodation in Cape Town.

Get in touch and we’ll make sure your accommodation is just as luxurious as your shopping sessions.
