I’d be lying if I said I I didn’t want to save money as much as I can with gifts. While I would want to give extravagant gifts to every person on my list, I would also want to give to as much people as I can! :) I’m sure I’m not alone with this that’s why I’m always on the look out for affordable but USEFUL gifts that the receiver would love. Don’t you hate getting ones that you will go straight to storage or your stack for re-gifting? Well, I surely do! Verniece would always mention that I’m a shopaholic on our blogs and I’ve already long admitted this but whenever I find myself stressed or frustrated, my place of solitude would be the mall. I’ve far improved and don’t have to always leave with a shopping bag in hand but the mere sight of stores and act of window shopping is already enough for me to feel better :P I guess you can say, it’s the band aid I put for the day for whatever problems or frustrations I’m having! haha! :) While one of my trips to the mall recently, I noticed that WATSONS have finally placed their yearly stock of exclusive gift sets. It’s always what I look forward to giving to people who made my year easier and I love that the selection they have are actual beauty products that girls would love to receive! :)
While we were in Europe, we got an email about Watsons inviting us to have a little shopping date with 4 of our readers and even if it fell just a few hours after we land, we immediately said yes! What could be better than treating our readers to the gift sets and finally the time to buy some so we could finally start with our Christmas list! :) We met Elaine, Camille, Syrah and Samantha at the branch in Mall of Asia and we all had about two hours to shop and get to know each other better by having coffee right after. We even played 2 truths and 1 lie to break the ice! haha It was like Watsons new what my idea of a perfect relaxing afternoon was – some shopping and coffee!
While shopping, I noticed that this year’s selection of exclusive gift sets fits every person on my list of people to give Christmas gifts to. There’s a make up set for my niece, a grooming set for my dapper cousin, and even toiletry sets from Creamsilk and Dove for my helpers and driver! They even have a mix and match promo where you can buy 3 gift sets worth 99 pesos each for just 279 pesos or the ones worth 149 pesos each for only 399 pesos! :) Having a one stop shop for gifts like Watsons definitely made me life easier!
A big thank you to WATSONS for having us!
