Gifts Your Children Secretly Want This Christmas

Sa papalapit na Pasko, hindi natin makakalimutan magbigay ng regalo sa ating mga mahal sa buhay. Sometimes, it’s most difficult to think for gift ideas for your children. You provide them their needs all year round and Christmas is just the time to spoil them a bit. Bilang magulang, syempre ang gusto mo lang naman ay ang mapasaya sila. Dahil diyan, ikaw ang itinuturing na Santa Claus ng mga anak mo.

Choosing a gift for your kids might seem like a hard task, which is why we, at BeamAndGo, are here to help.

Una sa lahat, remember that your children love you no matter what and that gifts are just their to remind them of your unconditional love para sa kanila. Kaya dapat, ang mga regalong ibibigay natin ay ang magkakasya lang sa ating budget. Pangalawa, it’s better to gift practical gifts — ‘yung magagamit nila talaga. Kaya isipin mo muna ang mga hilig nila, bago ka mimili. Pangatlo, alam naming marami kang pwedeng pagpilian, kaya hindi mo maiiwasang malito. Heto ang ilan sa mga gift ideas para kay bunso, kay ate, at kay kuya:

Para kay Bunso

Mga laruan na siguro ang bukambibig ni bunso tuwing Pasko. Siguradong magagalak sila kapag natanggap nila ito. Maraming educational toys we can choose from for our kids from toddlers to pre-teens.

Another practical gift idea would be books and fun school supplies. A short trip to the bookstore nearest you will do the trick! Piliin mo ang librong kinahihiligan na niya or something related to it, whether it’s fiction or non-fiction. Kung mahilig naman siya sa art, pwedeng coloring book ang ibigay mo. Magdagdag ka na rin ng fun supplies, like notebooks, pencils, and pens, with pictures ng favorite characters ni bunso!

BeamAndGo also offers Department Store gift certificates para pwede makapamili ng mga supplies, educational toys at iba pa

Para naman maka-download si bunso ng educational games and apps, get him or her a new Kata T mini 3. At dahil maraming features ang tablet na ito, perfect siya hindi lang para kay bunso, para din sa buong pamilya!

Para kay Ate

Magandang iregalo kay ate ang isang diary o planner. Here she can write her notes, reminders, and schedule para sa kanyang mga klase o para sa trabaho. You can find these sa bookstores or even get planners for free sa promotions ng iba’t ibang restaurants o coffee shops.

Pwede mo rin bigyan ng bag si ate, where she can place her valuables and her kikay kit. Choose something in her favorite color! Kung meron na siyang paboritong bag, damit na lang o accessories ang ibigay mo sa kanya, something that fits her style.

BeamAndGo Department Store gift certificates are readily available for Ate’s shopping spree!

Para sa mas praktikal na regalong siguradong magagamit ni ate, you can get her our Special Christmas packages at BeamAndGo from Unilab. May 15% discount ka pa, when you purchase now up to December 5, 2016.

Para kay Kuya

Kung active ang lifestyle ni kuya, magandang regaluhan siya ng bagong shoes or sneakers. You can buy kuya new shoes for running, football, or basketball — ano man ang hilig niya. Of course, pwede mo rin siya bilhan ng casual sneakers for malling and going out with his friends.

Isang magandang gift idea ang bagong wallet to replace kuya’s old one. Isa ito sa mga bagay na nakakalimutan nating palitan, kapag masyado nang naluma.

Shopping options at department stores, also possible using BeamAndGo Department Store gift certificates!

Tandaan na mas mabuting mamili ng mga regalo habang maaga. This will give you more time to choose the perfect present for each of your loved ones. Habang papalapit nang papalapit ang Pasko, dadami pa ang mamimili sa malls at shopping centers. Kung ayaw mong ma-traffic at makigulo, subukan mong mamili at bumili ng mga regalo online. There are different online shops for your gift needs. Pero bakit ka pa lalayo kung makikita mo naman ito dito sa BeamAndGo, diba?

6 Gift Ideas for Mom & Dad: Mga Santa Claus ng Buhay Natin

Lumalamig na ang simoy ng hangin dito sa Pinas. This means Christmas is just around the corner! Dadayo na ang mga carolers, mga inaanak, at mga kaibigan at kapamilya natin para makisama sa kasiyahan ngayong Pasko. Dahil malaking bahagi ang bigayan ng regalo sa panahong ito, we should spend time and thought on what to give our loved ones. By giving practical and affordable gifts, we can show them how special the are nang hindi nabubutas ang ating mga bulsa.

In our previous blog post, we’ve also shared holiday saving tips for you and your family.

Unahin na natin ang dalawa sa pinakamahalagang tao sa ating mga buhay: ang ating mga magulang, ang mga Santa Claus ng buhay natin. ‘Di na natin mabibilang kung ilan at anu-ano ang mga naibigay sa atin ni mommy at daddy. At kahit wala silang hinihinging kapalit sa pagpapalaki at pag-alaga nila sa atin, this Christmas is the perfect time to give back! Here are 6 practical and affordable gift ideas for mom and dad:

1. Christmas Cards

recyling-christmas-cards

Christmas is a great opportunity to tell our loved ones how much they mean to us — ‘wag nating palampasin ang pagkakataong ito! Buy a Christmas card from the nearest bookstore or make your own! Ang mahalaga naman ay masabi mo ang gusto mong sabihin. Hindi kailangang mamahalin ang iyong regalo. It’s the perfect time to thank our parents for all they have done for us. Siguradong marami na ang kanilang naisakripisyo para sa atin. No material gift can replace a simple “thank you” and “I love you” written on a card they can keep forever.

This might be the cheapest yet most meaningful gift you can give your parents. Uso na ngayon ang e-mail, texts, at Facebook wall posts, but nothing can compare to an old-fashioned handwritten letter.

2. Bagong Damit

As you grew up, your parents bought you countless clothes. Ngayong Pasko, bumawi naman tayo!

Maong jeans, belt, at shoes, ang ilan sa mga praktikal na regalo para kay daddy. Lagi niyang magagamit ang mga bagay na ito at pwedeng ulit-ulitin. Make sure to choose something with good quality pero affordable pa rin!

Para naman kay mommy, a classic blouse or dress, bag, at sandals. Syempre dapat favorite color niya ang piliin mo!

3. Care Packages

Screen Shot 2016-11-10 at 6.24.35 PM.png

Minsan nakakalimutan ng ating magulang na alagaan ang sarili nila. They have always been putting us first. Giving them a care package containing different health and wellness products would remind them na hindi nila dapat kalimutan ang sarili nila. We want them to be happy and healthy, ‘di ba?

Some care products you can consider to include are bath essentials, vitamins and health supplements. Pwede kang mamili ng mga paborito nilang ginagamit sa katawan o kung ano sa tingin mo ang magugustuhan nila. There are ready-made packages you can find sa mall. Para mas mapadali ang pagpapadala sa iyo, meron din tayo niyan sa BeamAndGo!

4. Pang-exercise

Enough exercise is essential to stay healthy as we grow older. Kaya naman, magandang idea ang bigyan ang ating mga magulang ng regalong makakatulong sa kanilang pag-exercise.

Kay papa, bagong bola ng basketball o jersey. Ok ‘to para yayain niya ulit ang kanyang mga kaibigan para mag-basketball, just like the good old days! Matibay na running shoes o badminton racket naman for mama. Giving your parents these items will give them more reason to exercise and become healthier. Isama mo rin silang magjogging tuwing umaga ngayong Pasko! Presko naman ang hangin kaya maganda itong bonding experience para sa buong family this season.

5. BeamAndGo Supermarket GCs

Syempre hindi natin makakalimutan ang BeamAndGo Supermarket GCs! It’s a practical gift, not just for parents but for anyone. Sila na ang pipili ng kung ano man ang kakailanganin nila, not just for their household.

Maraming practical and affordable gadgets ang pwede mong ibigay kay mama at papa, tulad ng earphones, powerbanks, gadget cases, tablets and phones.
