It is the holiday season again and although the Coronavirus Pandemic might have given birth to a new normal, one thing never change, the tradition of giving gifts.
Even if we don’t celebrate Christmas, I take the opportunity of the festive season to also give gifts to the people who matter to me.
I am sharing some practical and useful gifts that people will surely appreciate.
1. Lysol Bundle Packs
The tita in me is so happy to receive a Lysol Gift Pack! It is always important to disinfect (our home and gifts!), and a Lysol Bundle Pack that came with 2 units of 340g Lysol Disinfectant Spray and PRC (Philippine Red Cross)’s teddy bear makes a thoughtful gift.
For every purchase of this special holiday-themed pack available in supermarkets nationwide, Lysol hopes to create further awareness on the efforts undertaken by PRC. Moreover, the special holiday-themed pack makes for an excellent gift for friends and family, reminding them to always practice good hygiene to Disinfect to Protect.
2. Love, Beauty and Planet Liquid Handwash
I can say that our hands are the most tired and used body part nowadays. We alternate keyboard, phone, and sink. It is just rightful that we give our hands serious TLC.
The new Love Beauty and Planet Liquid Handwashes, which are infused with goodness and sublime scents. From the eco-beauty brand that’s all about performing small acts of love for yourself and the planet, the Love Beauty and Planet Liquid Handwash line features lovingly crafted liquid soap formulas that are gentle on the hands and kind to the planet, too.
Just like the rest of the offerings from Love Beauty and Planet, these handwashes are vegan and cruelty-free, made with no parabens, dyes or sulfates. While its formula is made from ethically-sourced organic ingredients, each bottle is made with 100% recycled materials and can be recycled after use!
Pack on moisture and gentleness on your hands with these four handwashes:
Coconut Water and Mimosa Flower Petal Soft Handwash: Enjoy the feeling of delicately scented, refreshed hands with the Petal Soft Handwash, infused with Coconut Water, known for its hydrating properties, and handpicked Mimosa Flower.
Coconut Oil and Ylang Ylang Tropical Fresh Handwash Made with locally-sourced virgin coconut oil for repair and protection, the Tropical Fresh Handwash gives your hands ultimate freshness and nourishment while leaving a delicate floral scent.
Murumuru Butter and Belgian Rose Majestic Moisture Handwash: With a rich floral scent like that of a bountiful bouquet, the Majestic Moisture Handwash pampers and soothes your delicate hands, protecting them from dryness – all thanks to murumuru butter that’s ethically-sourced from the Amazon.
Tea Tree Oil and Vetiver Pure and Positive Handwash: Blended with tea tree oil and vetiver, for an earthy, refined scent, the Pure and Positive Handwash gives overworked hands a chance to detoxify and relax, allowing you to breathe a sigh of relief after a long day of work.
3. (Healthy) Snack Box
A care package that consists of the recipient’s favorite snacks (or healthy snacks to introduce him/her to healthier options) is another practical and useful gift. I personally love receiving snack or care boxes!
Here is something I received from Philam Life – curated box from Raw Bites. I really love the snack varieties in Raw Bites. But you can also do your little grocery shopping at Healthy Options. The store usually offer Holiday Gift Boxes.
4. Grazing Box
Grazing boxes would make a perfect gift to your friends if you are planning to host a virtual party or even just to say, you remember them.
It is nice to treat friends/loved ones into an indulgent night and save them the trouble of buying their own cold cuts and cheese. You can order customized Grazing Boxes and choose the cold cuts, dried fruits, crackers, cheese, crackers and bottle of wine. Check out this article to see where you can order one.
5. Subscription to Netflix, Spotify or other apps!
Back when I was still in corporate work and Holiday Parties would ask for our wish list, I would always write “1 year Cosmopolitan Subscription”. I used to collect Cosmopolitan Magazine, and it was nice to receive an issue every month (for a whole year). It is like getting a gift every month.
