SHOPS TO LOVE: Christmas Gift Suggestions 002.♥

by - October 25, 2017

Only 61 days left till Christmas and I'm back with my second round of gift suggestions! :) 

With our busy schedules and so many people in mind, it can get confusing or difficult to spot gifts, so I want to share with you, guys some of the things that caught my fancy and possibly be a prospect for Christmas gifts for your special someone or loved ones. ^_^


For notebook lovers or your loved ones who go through the pages in just a span of a month, why not get them some from Moleskine? To make it even more special, you can personalize it! :)

For every two (2) Moleskine notebooks that you purchase, you can have it personalized for FREE at their pop-up store at SM Aura. :) How sweet is that, right? A personalized or customized gift always shows how much you feel about someone to go the extra mile. :)

And if you want to stray away from plain notebooks, why not this Christmas themed one from The Grinch? :)

Definitely digging the Toy Story! Oh and there's also one for Game of Thrones fans! :)

Moleskine also has a gift box that I think would be perfect for your bosses or big clients! 

For cool gifts or you really want to make a grand gesture, go for this Moleskine Smart Writing Set! It instantly digitizes all your drawings or notes on a cool paper tablet notebook with the use of the smart Pen+ :) Plus you can easily share it!

Don't forget to visit Moleskine's pop-up store at SM Aura until December 31, 2017! ♥
