Holiday Gift Ideas

My top picks for the holiday gifting season! These are some of the things I’ve already bought as gifts, things I saw online and love, and some I would love to receive (*wink). There’s a gift for everyone — the traveler, the hostess, for the whole family, for him, for her, and for the kiddos. Make sure to order them early before they run out.

1. Personalized Travel Bags

Neatly pack all your clothes into these space saving bags. Your clothes will stay wrinkle-free and won’t get crushed during your travel. Available in sets of 3 (P595) and 4 (P695).  Free name embroidery included.

2. Personalized Utensils and Glass Bottles

KEEP IT SIMPLE IG: @keepitsimple_ph  These personalized utensils are the perfect addition to your kid’s lunch box and for those who want to bring their own utensils to work. And these cute personalized glass tumblers are available in both 300ml and 400ml.

3. Personalized knives

Men can be notoriously hard to shop for. If you’re blanking out on ideas to give your male friend or family member, why not give him a personalized Swiss knife that’s only P550?  Better than a tie, right?

4. Sleepwear

It’s the time of year to get cozy and comfy! Who doesn’t like the feel of silk sleepwear on their skin? Check out these silk and cotton sleepwear from Harper Bridge.

5. Gift Sets

Carefully curated pieces in C&B’s signature black and white box with bright red ribbon. Starting at P3000 to P5500.

6. UV-C Sterilizers

Give the gift of good health this Christmas! Eliminate disease-causing germs with the help of these UV-C sterilizers. I personally own 5 of their products and I love them so much. Last year, I got their pocket sterilizer as a gift.  It was one I truly appreciated.

7. Workout Clothes & Accessories


There’s something about stylish gym wear that makes any person want to workout more. Lululemon has cute gym basics for every type of workout. Shipping is fast (3-4 working days) and FREE (from HK to MNL). Be careful not to go over P10,000 on one transaction or you will be taxed here. Pro Tip: Check out the sale items under “We Made Too Much” category.

8. Jewelry

PRECIOUS METALS Website: @precious_metals  Go all out and buy your special someone a pair of earrings or maybe a necklace; a gift now, an heirloom later. There’s a plethora of good fine jewelry available from Precious Metals — diamonds, pearls, and gold pieces for women, men, and even kids. I’ve transacted with them before and my items were even delivered on the same day.

9. Docking station 

DOMESTICITY Website: @mydomesticityph  A sturdy and aesthetically pleasing charging dock for his or her phone. I have the bigger one which I also use for my iPad and Apple Watch.  It already comes in a nice string bag so no need to gift wrap it.

10. Jams & Spreads

¡BUEN PROVECHO! BY OLIVER & MAUDE Website: @oliverandmaude  How about some all-natural and preservative-free pantry staples to give to the hostess with the mostest? I have served these during dinner parties at home and it never fails to receive compliments. They’re all delish! Check out their Christmas Look Book here.
