It’s rare to find both convenience and affordability in one store. Usually, people would go end to end inside the mall just to find what they are looking for at the lowest price possible. It is practically gold to be able to locate a store that has almost everything (if not all) that you need. And last November 6, 2016 (Saturday), Miniso had its grand opening at SM Manila and it is definitely the shop everyone has been asking for.
Miniso is the fast fashion designer brand of Japan. They sell numerous products which include home necessities, fashion accessories, health and beauty products, office supplies, stationery gifts, season products and many, many more. Miniso ensures that all of these are high-quality, creative in design, and affordable for all. Over 80% of the brand’s product designs originated from Japan, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia, China, and other countries, so you can be sure to spot bits and pieces of Asia in this one-stop shop.
During the grand opening, we were invited to be one of the first few customers to take a look and, of course, shop at the big store. There were definitely a lot to choose from because all of the products are appealing and budget-friendly that you want to impulsively buy everything. We stopped ourselves from doing so and checked out all of the products that they were selling. After much contemplation, we compiled ten things we loved that you also might want to buy the next time you go to Miniso:
Mixed nuts, prunes, and dried raisins! It’s something worth trying. My mom especially loved the mixed nuts because they weren’t sweet and perfect for tita level taste buds. It only cost P199!
It’s common for girls to have nose strips, but Miniso believes it’s for everybody. This Volcanic Mud nose strips has variations for men and women alike! Let’s face it. Everyone wants to try and prove that they have less white/black heads than their friends — I know I do! Try them out!
It might be odd for others to buy underwears at stores like these, but trust us–the quality of the material is so nice. It actually reminded us of more expensive brands. Honestly, when I walked in the store, I wanted to buy these.
Not everyone has the opportunity to place darts because of its typically high price, so it’s a joy to see they have a dart board set at only 299! Maybe this can be the next attraction in your home when your friends come over!
There were a lot of adorable plushies available for sale. This little penguin (comes in blue or black) is too cute to not add to the list. Perfect for gifts as well. Those who wants to give me a cute gift this christmas. You know what I want… *ehem ehem blue ehem ehem*
We’re a sucker for minimalist water bottle and this design is absolutely perfect.
- Smartphone Case
This gift-worthy smartphone case is sure to bring a smile to the owner. This Panda is one of the many cute designs available.
Underwear, Plushies, Dartboards, and now… BAGS?? Hand bag, pouches, backpack, slingbag, or eco bags… you name it.
Okay, this is really cool. These are lollipop looking objects are actually massage hammers that you can use to relieve your aching back and foot and also hammering your stress away. Perfect gift for friends who are so stressed lately with the year-end deadlines!
Probably one of the most value-for-money product we found. This rechargeable lamp gives off a really nice lighting and it has a sensory touch button switch which makes it easier to turn on and off.
These ten items are just some things you can expect to see in Miniso, but there are a whole lot more that can certainly catch your attention! So bring a friend, drop by the store, and let us know what kind of haul did you get! Shopping for the perfect item became much, much easier.
