MANILA -- You're probably excited for the upcoming holiday season. And you can't wait to receive your 13th month pay so you can start your Christmas shopping.

But while gift-giving is an essential part of the Christmas tradition, coming up with a list of presents is not an easy task. Not only do we want our gift to be practical, we also hope our loved ones will appreciate the effort we put into it.

To help ease the hassle of Christmas shopping, here are some of the most awesome gift ideas that can leave a long-lasting effect:

Fitness studio or gym memberships

The first wealth is health but sometimes, living healthy can come with a price. Show your love this Christmas by gifting a loved one a membership to a gym or fitness studio. It’s perfect for anyone who’s into fitness or anyone who wants a fresh and healthy start for the coming year.


People nowadays like to try and learn something new. Whether it’s dancing, cooking or painting classes, these activities will surely be fun and interesting for you and your loved ones to try together. Plus, the experience can also let you make or build stronger relationships.

Vacation packages

Instead of buying a new phone or gadget, why not go on an unforgettable trip? Vacations are not just for relaxation and traveling can help anyone learn new things, whether about culture or history, or simply by being exposed to new places and people.
