Top 20 Philippine Online Shopping Sites for Gift Ideas & More

by Gift Guides & Shopping54 comments

Anniversaries, birthdays, Christmas, weddings — these are just a few of the various events in a year that warrants a gift-giving spree. Now, if you’re like me, these occasions are always a struggle because it’s difficult to think of great gift ideas; it’s even often tough to research for the right online shopping sites that will save me the time and effort. Of course, I realize the fact that it could be rather easy when the person you’re gifting has a strong interest in specific brands, shows, and some others — but then again, it can still be a daunting task to think of what to give them!

Thankfully, experience has honed me for these situations and I have finally compiled the following list of the top online shopping sites in the Philippines…

  • …to help you discover gift ideas
  • …to help save you time
  • …to save on ridiculous international shipping costs (if you’re living abroad)

Don’t forget to shop on these online shopping sites during the hottest sales events! Apart from the well-known Black Friday (November 24) and Cyber Monday (December 2), Philippine merchants regularly hold sales too on double-digit dates such as 9.9 (September 9), 10.10 (October 10), 11.11 (November 11), and 12.12 (December 12).
