Christmas in a special time of the year when we get to show each other we love each other. We give gifts because a long time ago, a special gift was given to us! Jesus Christ was born into this world to save us..indeed that free gift is the sweetest! For the past 3 years I’ve been doing 80% of my gift shopping online. December is just too hectic.. not to mention the traffic. For some reason work comes in during this time of the year and I no longer have the time to shop. I know most of you are in the same boat so I thought I’d share with you my Christmas gift guide. These are special items I love and hand- picked myself to share with you all.
For Women, Moms and Children..
1. Summer Solstice and Winter Solstice EDT by Sparrow P599.00 available at Seektheuniq.
Summer solstice is a refreshing burst of citrus and green tea while Winter solstice is a composition of floral notes.
2. Deer cat plush toy from Lapommehome available at their Alabang Town center store.
I love this particular toy as it spells out the holiday spirit. It’s design is very Scandinavian too, something I absolutely can not resist. My little girls is very fond of this “reindeer”.
3. PlanToys® Mini bulldozer at P995.00 and the Toaster at P1250.00 are wooden toys made of kiln dried, chemical free rubber wood. Available at Rustans Department Stores nation wide.
I love toys that are safe and non toxic. Plan Toys use soy based ink. Their items encourage learning and imagination. Something essential for my children at their particular ages now.
4. Grandma Minnie’s The Big Brave Boo Boo Balm. form VMV Hypoallergenics. 8g. at P615.00 and 15g. at P1,100.00
I read wonders about this product and was a convert myself when I casually applied some from a sample giveaway on a mosquito bite on my face. I was amazed because the next morning the bump was gone! It heals cuts, scrapes, wounds, eczema patches and more! This is something all moms should have and I never leave home without it.

2. Mustard Seed Sleep Massage Oil 120ml. P250.00, Mustard Seed White Tea and Ginger Home Spray 120ml. P220.00
