Christmas Gift Ideas to Surprise Your Loved Ones This 2020

Can you imagine Christmas without family reunions, carol singing, and Simbang Gabi? These are just some of the activities that we love about this season but may not be advisable this 2020 due to the threats posed by COVID-19. As Filipinos though, we won’t let anything bring us down. Despite the challenges we faced, are currently facing, and will be facing in the future, we will always find ways to make each other smile.

Celebrating together used to be enough but this Christmas, let us lift our loved ones’ spirits even though we cannot be with them through gift-giving! And if you have not yet decided on what to send, here’s a mix of unique, trendy, and classic gift ideas for all ages to spread the love this Holiday season. 😉

You can’t go wrong with giving your loved ones something sweet for the holidays. If you’re looking for an affordable Christmas gift that everyone will appreciate, share, and enjoy, then By Benassi’s mascarpone cake would be a perfect choice – especially if you want to surprise an entire family in one go.

Based on taste and looks alone, By Benassi’s mascarpone cake is one of our team’s ultimate favorite cakes. This really isn’t surprising. This mascarpone cake is so delicious because the brainchild behind it was actually born and raised in Massa, Tuscany, Italy – and trust us: you can really taste the difference. It is the most decadent, luscious, and delicious mascarpone cake we’ve ever tried. It’s basically like getting a taste of Italy right here in the Philippines!
