We Filipinos love the Christmas season. It’s the time when we get to bring out our sweaters and actually wear them for a reason – it’s cold outside! It’s also the time of the year when everyone gives gifts to show appreciation and love to one another. This year, wouldn’t the idea of giving gifts that give back to the community be better?
The Holiday Affair: Gifts That Give Back is an event that promotes awareness about local entrepreneurs and empowering women through social enterprise, including giving back to our community and giving extra special and worthwhile gifts to the women of our lives.
In the event, you will get to witness affordable but irresistible gift packages that range from 900 PHP, 1200 PHP, 1800 PHP, and 2500PHP. The exciting part is finding out what comes with those packages! You get your gifts wrapped in a box with gift cards. Plus, you can also choose products from three participating brands that might make you want to get a gift package for yourself, too!
Bare Essentials – All Organic Home Essentials & Make-up
Atmosphere Manila – Personalize Pieces For Travel, Home, and Fashion
Private Storey – Sleepwear & Loungewear Essentials
There’s a bonus: make your gift more meaningful and extra special by personalizing them! Have your their names embroidered on lush satin robes and travel pouches or have their names printed on candles and linen sprays.
You can also chill by the lounge area and munch on some snacks while waiting for your gifts to be ready, because gifts worth giving takes time! (wink)
Not only will you be giving the beautiful amigas of your life amazing gifts, but you’ll also be giving a gift to our environment. For every box bought, 20 PHP will go to CORA (Communities Organized for Resource Allocation) a non-profit organization that creates projects and programs to fight climate change for the betterment of our planet.
Through the Holiday Affair: Gifts that Give Back, you can give beautiful gifts while giving back to the community! It’s the season for big hearts and knowing you’re making a lot of people smile behind every box, is probably the best mushy feeling you can get this holiday. Drop by The Park Fashion and Lifestyle Store and start making your holiday gifts this year with meaning.
