It’s almost Christmas and I’m sure you’ve faced the daunting task of deciding what gift or regalo to give a coworker, a family member, a friend, a partner, a relative, other loved ones, and even to yourself. So if you’re still thinking of Christmas gift ideas, consider going for local Philippines products and/or sellers! Besides, with the existence of online shopping websites and Instagram storefronts, placing an order can be done easily and fast (most especially if you’re already pressed for time).

Plus, you’ll not only surprise your recipient with a special gift but you will also help and support local artisans, creators, crafters and sellers who have poured effort and dedication to their products and businesses.

Without further ado, here are the top local Christmas gift ideas that you can give this holiday season. Feel free to mix and match!
