It’s the time of the year again and guess what I still haven’t gotten my shit together!!! But.. when it comes to gift giving, I always make sure to gather it together because I don’t wanna give anything na hindi magugustuhan or magagamit ng pagbibigyan ko and on the other hand, ayaw ko din namang gumastos ng sobra sobra because that is totally breaking the law of being the daily broke that we are.


SO, here are some suggestions you could bring to life for gifts less than a hundred:


  1. Baby Lips Bright Out Loud (Maybeline) – P 89.00

Comes with four different shades pa yan so please even with its cheap price, put into consideration din kung ano ang skintone ng pagreregaluhan mo or else. Kim personally loves this set because it is so handy and effortless beauty lang ang effect AND with SPF 13 pa siya so wala ng say ang araw sa lips ng pagreragaluhan mo.

(Shades) In order: Beaming Violet, Striking Orange, Vivid Peach, Pink Alert



2. ClearSmooth all-in-one shine free foundation to-go (Maybeline) – P 99.00

Yes, hindi lang sa fast food may to-go. We are sucker for things that are handy kaya this one goes on top of my list since maliit lang siya and very bagay sa mga chic mong friend na pala-travel. You can use it anytime kasi it comes with a cutie powder puff inside it and a compact-mirror. I personally use this one kasi ang tagal niyang maubos and imagine it’s only 99 pesos! This is also very friendly sa mga friends mo na hindi masiyadong fond or pro sa make-up because it’s very lightweight you won’t end up looking like a cake kung hindi ka marunong mag-blend like me.


3. Lux Body Wash – P 55.00

We just love the smell of this body wash we always end up taking a bath longer than usual! Tumatagal din yung amoy niya wag ka lang talaga magbabad sa M/LRT. This is just so perfect for ladies as a gift and we personally call this one a NECESSITY BECAUSE WHY NOT. It is so mabango.



4. Papemelroti Desk Items – P 39.00

This shop is so cute it has always been my go-to botique especially kapag last-minute gift shopping. I love how simple yet so sentimental ng mga items nila. Just take these wave calendars for example! I have actually bought a couple of these for my officemates nung nagplipat office ako. And another good thing is less P 7.80 siya so P 31.20 na lang siya IF you buy 50 pcs or more. See? Isn’t it so perfect for giveaways din? They have a couple of branches you can google but I always go sa Sta. Lucia Grand Mall and SM Megamall.


5. Penshoppe Shirts (Lazada) – P 99.00

Lazada could also be one of your go-to online based botique. You can also manage the price range and get some of their good deals like these items! Di nga lang kasama yung mga lalaki, shirt lang talaga. They are also cash-on-delivery based so less hassle for you and your artistahing sched.



6. SanMig Light in can – P 42.00

Basta 18 y/0 and above yung pag-reregaluhan mo, okay to. SWEAR! Pwede mo pang dalawahin para mas close sa P 100. Lagyan mo na lang ng ribbon around it para mas social or cellophane if you have the budget.


7. Street Food worth P 100

YES. SERIOUSLY. Because, why not?! It’s everywhere and it’s just so good! Swerte na ng friend mo kung i-treat mo siya ng worth 100 na isaw, betamax at fishball! Pwede din kayong mag-exchange gift, sa kanya yung item number 6. Result? Perfect combination and a Merry Christmas, indeed!
