I am the type of person who love celebrations, parties and gift-giving, who doesn’t? And I think it’s in our nature as Filipinos to be so generous, thoughtful and self-less. We don’t just give gifts on birthdays and on Christmas Day but we see to it to give gifts in every special occasion.
It doesn’t really matter how much or how fancy the gift is, “It’s the thought that counts”, right? Here are my fool-proof gift ideas for any occasions.
DIY / Customized gifts – I love crafts and making personalized gifts for special occasions like birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. It brings me so much joy when I know they appreciate the effort and creativity I put into each gift. And sometimes you just really can’t find that perfect gift, for that perfect occasion, for the perfect people. The last personalized gift I’ve created was a money holder for my cousin’s wedding.
Plain Tees / Statement Shirts – Safest gift to give is a plain white or black tee because it matches with anything! And if the one you’re giving the gift to loves sense of humor, a shirt from Linya-Linya would be the perfect gift.

Starbucks Card – uso naman these days yung “Tara, Kape Tayo!”. My friends would definitely love to receive this since we usually go out and drink coffee to catch up, or right after being so intoxicated after a night out. 😀
Gift Certificate – At the company I work at, employees are given Employee Incentives and Rewards. A few years back, I was able to convert some of my employee points/credits to 3,000 worth of Sodexo Premium Pass/Sodexo Gift Check/Sodexo Gift Certificate. It is one of the common go-to gift, because believe me, you can never go wrong with giving GCs as a gift. It is so convenient and hassle-free. No more worrying if you’ll be giving them the perfect gift, because more than that, you’ll be giving them the freedom to choose what they like and how they can enjoy your gift. 😉
And now that Christmas is just few months away, are there any fool-proof gift ideas you can share?
