SHOPS TO LOVE: Gift Suggestions 001 .♥

by - September 20, 2017

The Christmas spirit starts really early in the Philippines and as soon as the BER months hit, we can already hear Christmas jingles being played at the malls and decors being sold at every department store! So, why not start early as well with your Christmas shopping? Avoid the holiday hustle and bustle and get your loved ones the perfect gift! No to cramming! ^_^

Sharing you some of my gift ideas for Christmas 2017!


When the woman in your life simply cannot get enough of beauty products, specifically lipsticks, what's the best thing to give? The latest collection, of course! :) But not just one or two shades, why not 20 gorgeous shades from Avon's Perfectly Matte Lipstick line? ^_^

 This can also be the perfect Christmas gift to yourself! Haha! Reward yourself in working so hard the whole year round! 100% matte finish and lasting comfort, you don't have to worry about dryness and flaking, was each shade wears comfortably and can rocked with ease. 

The Perfectly Matte line comes in 20 shades including 8 new perfectly new shades. :)

My personal favorites are these 5 shades in order: Red Supreme, Rouge Perfection, Electric Pink, Pink Passion and Hot Plum. :)

This collection has a wide selection of colors and shades that suits any Filipina. You, too, can find the perfect matte shade! Truly, Avon is a brand that empowers women to feel comfortable and beautiful without any compromise.♥

The Avon True Perfectly Matte Lipstick line retails at Php 399 each and is available at :)

If you're someone who's into skincare, Avon also has something that will interest you or a loved one you want to give it to. :) They have the new Avon True Nutra Effects. :)

Avon True continues its commitment to create products that make it easier for every woman to feel and look beautiful everyday. Adding to its list of "beautiful promises kept", the brand developed the all-new Avon True Nutra Effects. It has two lines - Mattifying and Hydra-Boost. :) The simple yet targeted regimens harness the power of Active Seed Complex with Chia Seeds to help keep your skin looking and feeling good. In this case, Chia Seeds' Omega-3, antioxidants, and oil absorbing properties were crucial in creating two product lines that cater to every woman's skincare needs. :)

The Mattifying line has Cleanser, Toner and Balance Gel Cream, while the Hydra-Boost line has Cleanser, Toner, Day Cream and Gel Cream

You can also order this online via :)

Christmas is a time that we do a lot of giveaways. It can be a company giveaway or bulk gifts for people at school or the office. So, why not go for something unique and cute! Caticorn Dreams is a shop that specializes in handcrafted soaps and they have the cutest ones! Just take a look at the mermaid tail, pusheen and minion soaps that I got! ^_^ You can even add names on them to give it a more personalized feel. :) They can cater to almost any design, so feel free to inquire!
I personally want to do this as a giveaway for Asher's 5th Birthday soon! ^_^

Moku is a brand that I've loved from the moment I discovered them, because of their eye-catching and reliable products. :) My personal favorite is their gel crayons and magnetic calendar, but since then, they've come up with more products and now they have every stationery hoarder's dream - pens!!!♥

And not just one kind, but a whole lot! They have Tech color gel pens, Knocktype color gel pens, Crystal gel pens, Erasable gel pens, Metallic gel pens, Penguin gel pens and more! ^_^ You can never have too many pens!

Also these adorable correction tapes! These would make you the coolest kid around school! Just look how fun and happy looking these are! :) I wouldn't mind having all of these when I was still in high school or college! :) So, if you have friends or loved ones who are into pens, get them these adorable stationery items from Moku!

When I think about cute accessories, I always have SM Accessories in mind and you can see why through this flatlay! They have a wide range of accessories from jewelry to other quirky stuff. :) 

For friends or your special someone who loves all things kawaii, a bunch of these would surely make their heart flutter!♥ The items are super affordable too, so not to worry about tearing your pocket! ;)


Last, but not the least is the cutest perfume from Juicy Couture, the Viva La Juicy Sucré. :) For those who love sweet floral fruity scents, this one would surely be a favorite. It has a pastry-like design for its bottle and a lovely scent. Perfect for the sweet people in your life or even the ones who love sweets! You can find this at SM Beauty section. :)

That's it! :) A few of my gift suggestions for Christmas! Will surely add more to these in case I find more interesting and cute stuff! ♥♥♥
