Not all gifts are made equal, so opt for those that give the greatest joy, comfort, and security.
The streets are twinkling bright with colorful parols; Christmas carols are on full blast on the radio, there’s palpable excitement as we gear up for the long-awaited Christmas season. Are you feeling the same holiday spirit, too?
If you haven’t gotten to it yet, it’s the perfect time to draft your lists—and check them twice— as we head into another season of good cheer and gift-giving!
No matter how or where you’ll be celebrating this year, you can still connect and make your favorite people feel special. Here we gather a few thoughtful gift ideas that your loved ones will truly appreciate.
Food for the Soul
For most Filipinos, our love language is food. So much planning goes into putting together the Noche Buena and family feasts. And while some may choose to celebrate the holidays this year in a more intimate manner (with smaller gatherings), you can still honor the time-held traditions by sending delicious gift boxes to your friends and family
From grazing boxes to fiesta platters and the like, each recipient will definitely have their hearts full as well as their tummies.
Home Sweet Home
As people are still working from home and/or studying online, help them stay comfy and motivated in their spaces with eye-catching décor, furniture, accessories, and the like, which they can use to spruce up their desks or rooms.
This is where those seasonal online sales come in handy as you can find practically anything and everything at the right price point. There are thousands of gifts to choose from which can suit any style and personality. Shop for wall art, pillows, desk organizers, gadget accessories—the list is endless!
Stressful times call for extraordinary measures. Help nurture the wellbeing of your loved ones with the right self-care gifts. These can be anything from simple, nourishing face masks to makeup, massagers, or even portable bathtubs! Look into how they like to be pampered and give them a gift that will help them destress and feel good inside and out.
The Write Stuff
We may be physically distanced and separated, but we can still nurture those important relationships to help us stay close. People are yearning for that connection so rekindle it with notes of gratitude and heartfelt letters. Just a simple “thank you”, “How are you?”, or “You’re important to me!” is a great way to remind others that they’re always in your thoughts and are appreciated.
Handwritten is always the way to go (especially on nice stationery!) as letters can be treasured keepsakes. But more than the medium, it’s the message that counts!
A Gift That Endures
If you’re looking for a gift that captures the deep love that you have for your family, why not give them the gift of a secure future with the right insurance coverage that ensures they’re financially protected whatever happens to you. It may not be as “fun” or as trendy, but it’s the most enduring. Truly a gift that will keep on giving.
