45 DAYS TO GO. Shuffling to and from shoots plus being a hands-on mom and doting wife are all part of Nina Ricci Alagao's daily responsibilities.
As an artist, mother, and wife, all the former beauty queen wants this Christmas is a little time to pamper herself.
“You know naman kasi how hardworking moms are, di ba?
"So, iyong mga pampering GC [gift certificate], mga gift vouchers, iyan ang perfect Christmas gift.
"Mga full body massage or spa, mga hair treatment, mga salon privileges...
"Iyong mga ganyan would really make moms feel good and special, kasi they don’t get that on a regular basis,” she tells PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal).
Most salons and spas in the metro offer unique packages that would fit the needs of every customer.
At the Sofitel Philippine Plaza Hotel's Le Spa, there's a variety of rejuvenating tea-based treatments that are definitely worth a try.
A GIFT FOR HUSBANDS. As for what Nina, as a wife, can give to her husband Michael Flores: “Ako kasi, iyong pinaka gusto kong ibigay iyong what makes him feel good.
"In the case of Mike, ano siya, e, it's the little things—mga pair of sunglasses, iyong mga shoes siguro, or a simple shirt.
"Magugulat ka, ang mga guys hindi naman sila maaarte.
"It doesn’t have to be anything grand or expensive or anything that you have to put so much effort on.
"It can be something simple but with a lot of thought in it.”
But, she says, the best gift she can give to her husband anytime of the year is: “Ooooh... Love, love, love, love, love!”
