From food to fashion and beauty, we’ll be covering all possible areas to make sure you have the best options to choose from. We will be posting gift guides every week till Christmas comes around so keep checking back for more!
I don’t know about you, but the best Christmas gifts are the ones that last more than the season. They become my companions in my everyday life. Some of them even used and abused that you have to call your friend, the gifter, just where exactly they got it. Whenever it’s my turn to receive that call, I know I did a good job.
If you’re done shopping for stocking stuffers, all good with the food you will get, and done making the reservation for where to have a feast, you can turn your attention to these practical but still special gifts. They are the ones which your friends will never leave the house without and even help them in different situations.
Zara Biker Jacket
There are eternal ways to wear a leather biker jacket. Give this to the friend who is always out on trips or the one who loves to change up a look with one piece. Studies show that people who give biker jackets are cool across the board. Available at SM Mega Fashion Hall.
Rebecca Minkoff Mini MAC velvet shoulder bag
A bag that’s cute and useful is few and far between. You’ll be able to put an end to a friend’s search with this velvet number from Rebecca Minkoff. It will go with a lot of casual looks and will pass even for an evening occasion. Available via Farfetch.
Everlane The Cashmere Crew Sweater
Who doesn’t want, need, and love a sweater? One that’s soft and warm which will see you through rainy days and even on occasions that you can’t figure out what to wear. Tip: Buy one for yourself too! Available online.
Levi’s Classic Straight Stretch
There used to be a time in our lives where every other aunt gave us a pair of jeans. Turns out they were on to some age-old wisdom as these staples are something you can never get enough of. Amp up the collection of a loved one with a pair from an old favorite in a cut that’s timeless and suitable whatever their fashion sense is like. Available at Greenbelt 5.
Sunnies Studios in The Malibu
When it comes to glasses, it’s fun to experiment and have a few statement-making ones on deck. For your beach-loving, always out friend, give them these pink sunglasses. Yes, you will tint their view of the world via these rose-colored lenses but it’s a gift that will keep on giving. Available at SM City North EDSA.
