Gift Guide: Accessorize

I have 15 gal pals! They're the best that I got from studying in an all-girls school since prep!





Now that Christmas is technically 18 na tulog nalang, I realized I still haven't started my Christmas shopping! What I need is a one-stop shop that offers an assortment of items for my girls. One of the best go-to place is Accessorize! :) Here's something that I compiled to help you in your own Christmas shopping rush: A Gift Guide by Budget for your All-Girls Barkada! :)

Modelling by one of my girl friends since high school: Chickie Flores!
Special thanks to Ms. Ayet Quimpo and Ms. Cheenee Samonte of Accessorize for accommodating us in this blog feature.
Visit Accessorize in the following malls: Festival Mall, Robinsons Ermita, Northwing SM Cebu, Greenbelt5, Robinsons Galleria, Trinoma, AliMall, Marquee Mall & SM DAVAO



BUDGET: BELOW P500
You'll go far even when on the budget.

Give the writer gal pal a new cute pen and journal where she can jot down her thoughts and ideas. Pens at P75 to P260, Notebooks at P190 to P300.

Cute and functional eye masks will be appreciated by your barkada's sleepy head. Only at P450.

BUDGET: BELOW P2000
Christmas is indeed the time to give! For those with more-than-enough budget for this season, here are some nice gift ideas.

I'm sure your fashionista friend will love this scarf with the "it" cheetah prints! (P750)

A braided brown belt is a closet staple. (P750)

Accessorize's assorted sunnies are for P1300. Give this to your travel buddies so that they'll get excited with advance booking for your next trip!


Hat-lovers (like me!!!) will appreciate this knitted beret and other pretty head accessories! (starts at P900)


Party ready! :)

Will leave you with a few Christmas shopping tips and pointers:

1) Make a list before heading to the mall! Write down all the names side-by-side your budget for each person. Mahirap na mag over-budget, or may makalimutan!!!
2) You can also give same items for your whole barkada! Like a barkada tote, barkada wallet, barkada watch, etc.
3) Never underestimate the power of online shopping! Great finds can be found online, minus the hassle of long lines and big crowds in malls!
4) Go Green! Bring an eco bag when shopping, it's your best gift to Mother Earth!
5) We always hear this cliche: It is better to give than to receive! But then, as another cliche goes: It's the thought that counts! I'm sure that whatever you give to your family and friends, they'll appreciate more the love that comes with it.

So, happy Christmas shopping!!! :) Can't wait for our annual barkada Christmas party on December 17! :) YEY!


Thanks to my BB, Chicks, for helping me with this feature! :) <3
