Christmas carols playing on the radio, sparkling lights and lanterns left and right, puto bumbong and bibingka stalls on every street—yep, the holiday season is upon us once again!
With Christmas right around the corner, traffic is now getting worse by the day. But despite the larger crowds in shopping malls, Filipinos could not be more excited about shopping for gifts for their families, friends, and colleagues. For someone who spends almost the entire day at the office, it is exhausting to go straight to the mall without even planning on what you are going to buy and for whom. More often than not, less is more and even the cheapest gifts can hit the right note, especially if you know where to look for.
To ease your burden, here is a wide variety of gift ideas to choose from for your colleagues and boss:
For the Bookworm
They say books will become obsolete soon. But for book lovers, nothing will ever replace the smell of fresh paper and the feeling of lining up at the bookstore for a limited edition novel.
For the Traveler
Finding the perfect present for your traveler colleague may not be easy, but you can opt for one of these for starters. These may come in handy even for everyday use.

Whether your colleague loves drowning in the pages of a graphic novel or just enjoys keeping up with their favorite universe on-screen, they all have heroes and villains they just cannot get enough of. For that you can opt for these cool, storytelling-centric ideas to indulge their geeky obsessions.
For the Gym Rat
The gym buff at the office is always physically noticeable. You can always go for sporting gears and grooming supplies you think may benefit them. Luckily for you, the best gears and gadgets are wide ranging, giving you an array of amazing items to choose from.
For the Basketball Aficionado
You can see this guy almost always sporting his favorite NBA player’s kicks and jersey during the company-wide team building or at a casual weekend shoot-around with your other colleagues. It is easy to spot what he likes—bear in mind the team he is supporting and the sport he is most engaged in.
For the Gamer
Squeezing in video game references or famous dialogues from their favorite PC or PS4 games is what your typical gamer colleague does best. Help them conquer the virtual world with new games, merch, and accessories!
For the Fashionista
Shopping for your colleague who is all about that #OOTD? Looking for the perfect present for stylish women is no easy feat—but with these snazzy and pretty things, you can never go wrong.
For the Techie
From smart wearables you can strap to the body to gadgets you can use everyday at work, tech gifts are some of the most popular and sought-after presents out there. While technology is ever changing, you can help your colleague keep up with the latest industry trends.
For the Movie / TV Series Buff
The cinephile at the office is someone who quotes their favorite movie lines all the time and never shuts up about how a certain film’s sequel always ruins the first one. Remember: you can always do better than a movie ticket to the cinema.
For the Boss
Finding the perfect gift for your boss is like walking through a minefield. Do you go for something funny? Do you opt for a useful gadget or tech stuff? Or perhaps something personal? Consider something with a perfect hint of quality and individuality to let them know that you care.
Giving gifts is a way of showing your appreciation to others and letting them know that you care for them. While some people are not materialistic, the thought you put into finding the perfect gift for them might just make their Christmas even more meaningful. Happy holidays, everyone!
