Jan Braai Nominates the Potjie Pot as the Ultimate Wedding Gift

FireworksWe are heading into braai season, which also happens to be wedding season, and Jan Braai has shared his go-to wedding present idea on the Getaway Blog.

Unsurprisingly this gift is braai themed and fits with the tradition of giving the couple something that will last a lifetime – he suggests giving them a swartpotjie (cast iron pot), that can be used in a variety of ways on an open fire. If they’re braai novices you could slip a copy of Fireworks into it to get them started.

It’s November, the weather is great, people are braaing every weekend, and we’re rapidly heading downhill towards summer holidays, Christmas and … wedding season.

Female columnists and women’s magazines will focus on this topic over the next few months, so I decided to beat the rush, so to speak, and discuss an all-important topic now: what present to buy your braai relatives and friends when they decide to exchange take-away salads for permanent salad makers.
