READ: A Guide To A Meaningfully-Spent Christmas Break

There’s only one week left before Christmas which means that your well-deserved breaks (and bonuses) are fast approaching.

And so, have you already made plans on how you can meaningfully spend your holiday breaks? Don’t worry, this guide will help you have a full Christmas experience with friends and loved ones.

For others

Aside from shopping and eating out, Christmas is mainly about giving and showing love to others. Why not volunteer to some charitable non-governmental organizations and bring some toys and clothes to less fortunate kids?

For your friends

The break is also the perfect time to catch up with friends you haven’t seen for a while because of your busy schedules, given school or work responsibilities. How about a simple lunch just like the old days? You can even set up a Secret Santa game so everybody goes home with a gift.


For your S.O.

Yup, it’s that time of the year again to kiss under a mistletoe, rekindle the romance and enjoy the holidays with your significant other. We’re sure a romantic and intimate dinner for two would be a perfect way to celebrate the season. Don’t forget to prepare a simple but thoughtful present, too.

For your family

Nothing says happy holidays better than a noche buena shared with your family. It’s a good opportunity to bond and share meaningful messages and thanks to the people who will always be there for you for the nth number of Christmas and all the other days of the year.


For yourself

And of course, don’t forget to do something for yourself too. Something like buying those shoes you’ve been checking out the whole year, take yourself to a date, buy scented candles and have a nice bath, whatever that your heart desires.

You deserve it. *wink*
