Online Gift Guide 2013 (Lazada Philippines)

It’s gift-giving season again. For us Filipinos, we love giving gifts to our families and friends. But it’s quite hard to send them anything when we’re abroad and they’re in the homeland. Especially when we’re running out of time. Uhmn did you say it’s just a few days before Christmas?! OMG really?! What date is it now?!? Haha! Enter online shopping sites like

It can be very difficult to choose what gifts we can give our loved ones so I gathered some ideas for you which I saw in Of course, I considered budget so I chose items that cost less than P5,000 (approx. less than SR 500)…
Raise your had if you’re always stumped on what to give the men of your lives! I always have a hard time thinking and buying for my father, brothers, and uncles (of course they’ll say I don’t give them any thing anyways, haha!). For my guy friends too! You know how guys are… they like expensive techie stuff. Heheh.

  • Samsung Pocket Galaxy Neo Duos (P4,090.00) Yes, an extra phone for roaming is a must! This one is dual sim and touchscreen with 2.0MP camera and 4GB storage. Your husband will like this, especially if he’s also bound for abroad.
  • 10-in-1 Octopus USB Connector (P299.00) It’s compatible with most gadgets and devices. Need I say more? Your gadget freak son will be needing this for all the gadgets you gave him.
  • Sony Smartwatch Gen 2 (P4,813.00) Gadgets are not enough. This scratch and splash-proof multitouch display watch is both fashionable and techie. Your techie father will probably be bewildered why he received something as complicated as this but you know how our dads are… they refuse to admit it but they also want to be cool and updated once in a while. 😛
