My S&R Holiday Picks

Christmas is finally here! Traffic may be bad, and your wallet may be crying, but it'll be all worth it once you see the huge smile on your kid's face when he opens his present, or your mother's hug when she realizes you gave her that top item in her wishlist. The holiday rush may drive you crazy, and in case you're still not done with your Christmas shopping, I've listed below 7 fabulous finds from one of my favorite places, S&R of course! There's no such thing as "late" in gift-giving; remember, Christmas lasts until January in the Philippines!

I don't know about you, but I kinda like Christmas shopping, including buying stuff for family and friends. Every year, I prepare a list and specify a budget for each person, but I always end up overspending, getting past the budget, and buying duplicates of items I bought for my brother but am too envious of, LOL! Christmas isn't every day, so why not get into the spirit of giving?

1 | Houdini Gourmet Favorite Christmas Basket (PhP2,599.95). For your boss, family friend, or client who simply loves the finer eats. In this hamper, there's Brie Cheese Spread, Mama Mellace Fruit & Nut Mix, Godiva chocolates, Napa Valley honey mustard sauce, and many more!

2 | Philips 3-pc. Breakfast Bundle (PhP5,629.95). For your mother, sister, or tita who loves her morning sessions, but who is too busy to prepare a full breakfast. Get her a toaster, a kettle, and a coffee maker to start her day with.

3 | Houdini The Executive Christmas Basket (PhP7,999.95). More expensive chocolates, cheeses, spreads, chips, and snacks! Perfect for both personal and corporate gift-giving. Now this one I wouldn't mind receiving! Haha!

4 | 12-pc. Copper Bella Aluminum Cookware (PhP4,299.95). Seeing this made me think of my lola in an instant. She loves to cook, and seem to enjoy it more when her equipment is brand-new. This set she would definitely loooove!

5 | Gibson 16-pc. Poinsettia Dinnerware (PhP999.95). Newly-weds might hate getting dinnerware as gifts, but if it's as cute as this one? Maybe they'll reconsider. I would gladly buy this for my food photography-loving friends too. Such cute pieces of props!

6 | Bath Set. Girls like beauty products, and this one is a perfect find for my dancesport friends. They need to smell good after a long sweat practice session. Hahaha! OK, I do too. :p

7 | Houdini Bon Appetit (PhP3,499.95). Trufettes De France cocoa-dusted truffles, Godiva milk chocolates, Ghirardelli chocolates, Bavarian pretzels, Asiago cheese spread, Rovelli Tris Noir pralines, and many more stuff for your indulgence. Holiday snacking at its best!

All these items are available at any S&R Membership Shopping branch. I really love the wide range of choices at S&R, from the cheap items down to the more lavish ones, so there's something for everyone! The items listed above are actually discounted items, so not only are they perfect buys for your loved ones, they will save you a bit of money as well! Gotta #loveSnR!

Merry Christmas everyone!
