#Pinned makes it easier for young Filipinos to discover meaningful and enriching content and stories that will help them separate music from the noise, wheat from the chaff, and flowers from the weeds.
All our stories are written by young creatives who made it their life mission to know everything there is to know about how fellow young adults can make the most out of their limited downtime every day, every week.
Christmas is truly the most wonderful time of the year, not just because of the festivities, decorations, and holiday movies we have on standby but it’s a time of appreciation and sharing through gift-giving.
As we celebrate the yuletide season during a pandemic (yet again), we took it upon ourselves to search for gifts that are affordable and versatile—just a few things you can use all-year-round!
Here are six gift ideas you can purchase under P100:
1. Printed Glass Tumblers
We never leave the house without a tumbler in our hand. Well, it’s also for our personal safety (there’s still COVID-19, you know!). We love these transparent glass tumblers with unique patterns to quench our thirst. Not only can you see your drink easily, but you can also choose a design that suits your personality.
2. Multicolor Plant Pots
If you have a plant lover relative, these small round pots are perfect for plantitos and plantitas! Bring some color into your space with containers for your cactuses and succulents—instantly brightening up your day.
3. Simple, yet Elegant Placemats
We love giving presents that can be for just about anyone! Create a relaxing dining environment with these simply stylish placemats, while enjoying a delicious home-cooked meal. These are always a good gift idea or any homeware item, really.
4. Eco-Friendly Plates
Are you practicing sustainable living or encouraging someone to do so? These eco-friendly plates are the way to go. It’s actually the first time we’ve seen wheat straw plates. Not only does it have a positive impact on the environment, but it also has a positive impact on your body as it minimizes body toxins due to the food-safe PP material.
5. Christmas Table Runners
Christmas season calls for dinners, parties, and the like. However, as we shift towards more intimate gatherings, it doesn’t mean that you can’t make it just as special. This center table runner can surely spice your setup with holiday patterns and colors that can make it an instant celebration.
6. Japanese-Style Organizers
With all the time spent at home these days, we’ve noticed how much we’ve organized our belongings. For minimalists, these Japanese-style baskets are not only stackable but multiuse. You can place these in any space that needs organization—from the bathroom, bedroom and kitchen, you name it!
