Being an adult is expensive. There are many things you never knew you needed and sometimes not enough money to afford them. So, the next time you’re gifting a friend, you might want to consider giving something practical. Nothing on this gift guide is over P500 because we know you have bills to pay, too.
Coffee Mug Warmer (P315)
We’ve come to terms with the fact that not everyone has the same obsession with iced coffee as us. Some like their coffee hot and steamy, which makes this coffee mug warmer the ideal gift for them. They’ll never have to worry about their beverage getting cold.
Four-hole Pan (P280)
They say that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so what better gift to give than a four-hole egg pan. You get perfectly round omelets every time and can even be used to make mini pancakes. What’s more is it’s non-stick, which makes the washing easier.
Plant Pot (P199)
If your friend has evolved into a plantita/plantito, gifting them a plant pot wouldn’t be a terrible idea. It shows you support their hobbies and it’s one less pot they need to buy for their propagated babies. The plant pot could also double as a décor item if it’s customized or comes in a unique design.
Bedsheet Set (P230)
Fun fact: people spend a third of their life sleeping or at least trying to. Everyone could benefit from getting quality sleep and having clean and comfortable sheets is one way to achieve this. This would be a thoughtful gift, especially if they’re moving into a new home.
Portable Fan (P399)
It’s humid in the Philippines even during the rainy season, so a personal rechargeable fan is something everyone should own. This portable fan can be hung around your neck to keep you cool for 3 to 10 hours. It even has an aromatherapy box that can be filled with your favorite scents.
Practical gifts are not just about the price of the item; it’s about giving something they can use every day. They could already be eyeing something from this list and would be beyond grateful if someone got it for them.
