Gifts have always been one of the joys of the Christmas season. It’s a particularly exciting time for kids. Looking back on past holiday seasons, many of us can remember the excitement and anticipation that comes with waking up on Christmas day, celebrating the occasion with our families, and finding the presents we’ve been waiting for all year – colorfully wrapped and tucked under our Christmas trees.

As much fun as it is to receive them, the same amount of joy can be found in the act of giving gifts as well. While the pandemic may have changed the ways Filipinos celebrate Christmas, temporarily eschewing traditional big family gatherings in favor of online reunions and smaller, more solemn affairs, finding gifts has never been easier. Thanks to online shopping, you’re only a few clicks away from getting the ideal gifts to give your loved ones.

Even before we add things to our online carts, we spend so much time thinking of the perfect things to give our family and friends – carefully considering their interests, personalities, and needs. After all, gifts are one way of showing appreciation and celebrating the connections we’ve made with the people who bring joy into our lives.

Another reason for gift giving is to express support for the people we care about as they embark on new journeys or life experiences. For our friends looking to go all in on a new hobby, or a relative starting a new stage in life, gifts are ways for us to encourage our loved ones to keep going – knowing we’re behind them all the way.
