What we love the most about them is that their boxes consist of local, artisanal, and conscious Filipino products – the ultimate Filipino care package.

Ieth Inolino-Idzerda, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, says, “The balikbayan box is the ultimate care package. But more than what’s inside the box, it’s the joy of unboxing that makes this Filipino tradition special. Veering away from sending random imported products that could take weeks or months to be delivered, we want your family and friends to appreciate and enjoy high-quality Filipino-owned brands that you have personally selected for them. Purchased from abroad but packaged, delivered, and enjoyed locally.”

Sarah Fernandez, Founder and Chief Operating Officer, adds, “We believe that who makes the things you buy and where they come from matter–a lot. That’s why we shine the spotlight on the coolest local brands, championing Filipino artisans and micro-entrepreneurs.” 

Whether you live abroad or in the Philippines, send a thoughtful balikbayan box today and put a smile on a loved one’s face.
