I’m not going to sugarcoat it for you guys, Christmas is 33 days away and December starts next week. If you have been putting your gift shopping on hold, it’s time to finally face it. Start off your to-buy list with the special people in your life. If you have some cash to spare and feel like spoiling these wonderful individuals, we listed some luxury items as options.
Bless your brother with a pumped staple this Christmas. If he lives in T-shirts, gift him something more special, like this Gucci piece. This one is inspired by the painting of Ophelia by John Everett Millais. Suggest that he pairs it with dark wash jeans as a contrast to the light blue color.
Shop: Louis Vuitton Daily Confidential Bracelet. Available at Greenbelt 4.
Give your sister another accessory option that she can add to her collection. This leather bracelet from Louis Vuitton is perfect for any outfit, from casual grocery shopping to cocktail evenings. If she enjoys some color, this also comes in a red and black color combination.
Shop: Tom Ford Ultra Shine Lip Color. Available at Shangri-La Plaza.
For your beauty-loving BFF, luxury makeup is the way to go. You can never go wrong with lipstick so check out Tom Ford’s collections. I suggest the Ultra Shine Lip Color in Bare, which is a nude shade. The white packaging is so luxe too.
Shop: Diptyque Set of 3 Holiday Candles. Available at Rustan’s.
What do you get the people who gave you life? A set of expensive candles for their home because they deserve it. This comes with three candles with scents of Pine Tree of Light, Exquisite Almond, and Amber Balm.
Shop: Kenneth Cobonpue Operetta Pet Lounge. Available at The Residences, San Lorenzo Tower, Arnaiz Avenue, Greenbelt, Makati City.
When it comes to your gift list, don’t forget your pets. If they’ve been extra good this year, get them this pet lounge by Kenneth Cobonpue. The shape is “inspired by the simple but grand architecture of concert halls.”
For your significant other, and yourself, book a staycation. There are so many hotels you can pick from like Shangri-La at the Fort. For the full experience, you can also dine at one of their restaurants and book a treatment at their spa. Also take advantage of all their amenities like their gym and pool.
