Ideal Christmas Gifts to Order in Metro Manila

It’s that time of the year again. Where we scramble to find great gifts for everyone important to us, hoping they’ll like it enough to keep it, instead of giving it to someone else for another occasion. Let’s face it, and don’t lie, everyone is guilty of it. So instead of buying another crystal bowl (no one ever really uses, EVER), why not buy something that’s, well.. Useful? 

You don’t have to necessarily put so much thought of result into DIY, but if you do, then good for you, you kind soul. Here’s a list of potential Christmas gifts, you didn’t know, your special someone needed:

Ps. It’s okay if you get one for yourself too

1. Wireless Powerbank Charger

My friend was carrying some round device held against his phone, one time, and I asked what it was. It was a wireless charger which was also portable. I was stunned. Maybe a lot of you already know about this, since I live under a rock typing away. But I’ll stick to being amazed as I still am, for this is an invention that changes lives.

2. Wireless Earbuds

Another change-your-life gadget you need, wireless earbuds. Yes I know, these have been around for awhile now, but how come not everyone is using these? To give a gist feeling, it feels like taking off your bra after a long day. Maybe since Apple just hyped it up, now everyone wants it. But trust me, everyone should get a pair. Doesn’t have to be airpods, so here’s a cheaper option to get rid of those wires.

3. Robot Vacuum Cleaner/ Handheld Vacuum Cleaner

A robot vacuum cleaner may be more of an investment, but it’s a definite need, especially for those who live in condos and don’t have time to clean up all the time. It’s entertainment plus chores (its chore now). If you don’t want to spoil your special someone, a handheld vacuum cleaner will do. Make sure it’s portable and this person will give you hugs for eternity. It allows you to ditch the mini broom and pan and just suck up dirt when needed.

4. Derma Ice Roller for Face & Eyes

Now this is for all the skincare/ facial/ pamper junkies out there. This is a must-have. When you wake up in the morning, you feel two things: 1. Sleepy 2. Puffy. This roller deals with both. Plus your pores will be less visible. Leave it in the fridge overnight, then wake up and roll. You can thank me later.

5. Memory Foam Mattress Topper

This is pretty much a non negotiable gift you can give anyone. You know that feeling when you go on vacation and you look forward to the hotel, because you know you’re going to have such an amazing sleep, because hotel beds are for some reason, just so darn comfy? This bed topper gives you the same pleasure, at home. Roll it over on top of your mattress, put your bed sheet over, and prepare for heavy sleeps.
