Giving gifts has always been a tradition -- may it be birthdays, holidays, valentines, and many more. And sometimes, we always stumble upon this dilemma of deciding what to give. Of course, it's always the thought that counts, but don't you want to give something more special than the usual mug, wallet, or the any-junk-you-pick-up-in-the-mall presents? Because you want to make your people feel special, you have to give them something special. Take note: It doesn't have to be expensive!  

Unique, Novelty Finds

Aside from Blue Magic and other common gift shops, you might want to visit cool, awesome shops to find cute, unique stuff to give.

Quirks - provides quirky (hence the name) stuff for you and for your lucky friends! You could find their stores in the Power Plant Mall, Shangri-La Plaza, SM Megamall, and SM Aura. Or if you're too lazy to get on your feet, you could order from their online store here!

Vat19 - Ever wonder where you could find awesome stuff for your inner child? Then better visit their site! This is where majestic dreams come from -- indoor snowballs, beard hats, marshmallow shooters, giant gummy bears, and more.


Brew Your Own

The way to a man's heart is through his stomach -- WRONG. The way to ANYONE'S heart is through their stomachs. Another way to show your kind affection is to fill them up. Literally! You can never go wrong with food, especially if you're the one who'll make it. If you're already an experienced cook, bake them a recipe of your own that'll make their mouth water just by looking at your concoction. There's no problem if you're a beginner, you can look up a simple chocolate chip cookie on the internet! Put it in a cute container and wrap it with a ribbon.
