The UNDA Holiday Gift Guide 2021
After more than a year of staying at home due to the pandemic, we finally get a sense of normalcy back in our lives this holiday season. While taking precautionary measures to ensure our safety is still a must, we're now able to see our family and friends this December.
This unprecedented season in our lives has taught us that more than material things, it's the memories and relationships we build that matter most. Here, we round up some activities you can do for yourself and the people you love this Christmas.
TAKE YOUR MOM OUT ON A DATE
After a long period of staying at home, quality time with your mom is something she would definitely appreciate. This Christmas, gift her a special memory that she can keep with her for the rest of her life, be it through brunch out in her favorite restaurant, a spa date, or a nice alfresco dinner in the city.
Make the day all the more special by gifting her with cute outfits that you can wear to your mother-and-daughter date.
For mom: The Gabriella Tiered Dress. On sale at Php1259.
For yourself: The Julia Halter Dress. On sale at Php1099.
MAKE THAT BFF BEACH TRIP HAPPEN
At one point during the pandemic, it got overwhelming trying to keep up with your life and that of your best friends. The planned out of town trips ended up on the shelf, and the zoom calls started to lessen. Now that it's easier to go elsewhere, make that barkada beach trip a reality. Not only will you make the best memories, but you'll finally get to take your favorite swimwear out of the closet!
Make your special trip all the more memorable by gifting your BFFs with matching swimwear. Your photos will make a cute addition to your Instagram feed and to your bedroom bulletin boards as well!
For you and the besties: The Lucia One Piece. On sale at Php1549.
HAVE A FAMILY PICNIC IN THE PARK
Looking for unique ways to spend time with the family this December? How about planning a family picnic at the park for the whole family to enjoy? All you need to do is prep your favorite food, pop open a bottle of wine, arrange a cute setup, blast some timeless tunes, and round up the family for an afternoon of good vibes.
For you: The Julia Holiday Dress. On sale at Php1850.
For the picnic: The Alfresco Main Plates by Bondi Studios.
On sale at Php1350 for a set of 4.
HAVE A MUSEUM DATE WITH YOUR BOYFRIEND
Going on dates in the past two years has been a collection of Zoom dinners, home visits, and lunches in the car. Now that restrictions have loosened and more establishments have opened, it's the best time to take your boyfriend out on something you haven't done together in recent times.
A date to the metro's newly re-opened museums is a nice way to spend the afternoon, before capping things off with a romantic dinner at your favorite restaurant.
For yourself: The Lexi Coord in Midnight Blue. On sale at Php1900.
This year, let the holiday season be a reminder of the beauty of connection and relationships. As we find ourselves back in the company of those we love, may we be open to new experiences, enjoy the present moment to the fullest, and finally, after a long while, feel the festive spirit of Christmas once again.
