Have you finalized your Christmas list yet? If you’re having trouble figuring out what to give your loved ones, you’re not alone—in fact, that’s why most of us end up leaving our holiday shopping up until the last minute! Sometimes the closer we are to a person, the more pressure we feel to come up with the perfect gifts. Our family members, for instance, can be the most difficult people to shop for.
To help you get into the true gift-giving mode, here’s a little tip from Pinoy holiday icon and Shopee Christmas ambassador Jose Mari Chan: Think of what your recipient would find useful or meaningful. “List down some important people whom you want to cheer up, then browse online to see what items you can give. Whatever you give doesn’t have to be a big amount.”

For your tech-savvy brother
What do you get the brother who already has the coolest PC setup? Buy him high-quality gadgets and tech accessories he’ll use every day. He’ll definitely love the Marshall Stanmore II Bluetooth Speaker, which features multi-host functionality and Bluetooth 5.0 with Qualcomm aptX. Get him to start streaming his gameplays with Baseus LED Ring Light & Tripod, powered by 15W. Heavy mobile gamers will also get a lot of use out of Anker Powercore+ 10000, which provides high-speed charging with 18W.
For your beauty-obsessed sister
Do you always borrow cleansers and moisturizers from your sister? Replenish her beauty cabinet with the best skincare and makeup products. The SACE LADY Eye Makeup Set, KIMUSE Eye Beauty Kit, or Focallure Eye Makeup Set, all equally pigmented and long-lasting, will help her achieve the perfect cat-eye. The O.TWO.O Tinted Eyebrow Soap provides a strong hold and a non-irritating formula and mimics feathery brows. Add some color to her makeup collection with one of these limited-edition PINKFLASH Christmas Sets, which contain an assortment of palettes, lipstick, and eye makeup tools that she can play around with. For a clear, even skin tone just in time for holiday photos, get her the Breylee Acne Treatment Set or LANBENA Acne Scar Set.
For your supermom
Your supermom deserves all the pampering she can get! Treat her to a spa day during the holidays. Begin the makeover with silky, standout tresses in a fresh new color courtesy of Kolours Dusky Blonde Set of 2. The LAIKOU SAKURA Skin Care Set, chock-full of sakura extract and hyaluronic acid, will help restore her glow. Make sure she protects her skin from harmful UV rays with SkinWhite Whitening Lotion, which comes with SPF 20. Lastly, relieve muscle tightness and pain in her shoulder, legs, and body with Rest Easy Neck and Pillow Massager.
For your DIY expert dad
Your ever-reliable dad who serves as the family’s all-around handyman will love useful gifts. Replace his old tools with this Deli Household Tool Set, which includes tweezers, scissors, pliers, wrench, flashlight, and more. Most likely, your dad tends to ruin shirts while working on his projects, so get him a comfy cotton Regatta Men Round Neck Tee. For additional stocking stuffers, throw in a Hygienix Alcohol with Moisturizer, which effectively kills germs, to help him keep his hands and his workspace clean. If he works outdoors, make sure he stays safe and protected with tried and tested masks such as Ilwoul KF94 Nano Respirator or Air Queen Nano Fiber Mask.
Whatever you choose to buy, just remember: your loved ones will appreciate whatever you give them! Jose Mari Chan adds, “When you receive, it’s just a moment’s pleasure. When you give, it lasts longer. When you give out of kindness, love, charity, and generosity, the impact will last for many years.”
