Practical Gift Ideas for your Filipino co-workers
We’re already hearing bells ringing! This means the holidays are here, and so are the endless bouts of gift-giving.
It’s one of the most exciting things about the holiday season in the Philippines – the exchange gift program in every Christmas party. Times like this reveal two types of people that appear during Christmas: the “Santa Claus”, who seems to have a bachelor’s degree from the North Pole gift factory; and the “Clueless”, who are just completely, well, clueless about the whole science and art of giving gifts.
For the Clueless, we’ve compiled some gift items and services that your co-workers might appreciate (fingers crossed).
1. Massage Therapy from KARADA
After a year of hustling and stressing over office works, you can give the gift of ultimate stress relief to that hard-working officemate who deserves it the most. Karada, a comprehensive salon for body and health with a philosophy on preventive care and fundamental care, is Japan’s most famous Sentai salon. It is the best place for those who suffer from chronic joint and body pains, unsuccessful dieting, and post-pregnancy body changes. They have branches in Makati, Alabang, Taguig and San Juan City.
