34 DAYS TO GO. Having trouble finding the best gift to give to your boyfriend or brother?

Here’s one cool Christmas gift suggestion from Kapatid star Alwyn Uytingco.

PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other members of the press had the chance to interview the actor backstage, during their school tour for Tropa Mo ‘Ko Unli at STI Cainta in Rizal.

Alwyn recalled one his favorite gifts, which he got from his girlfriend Jennica Garcia.

He said, “Ako, last na natanggap ko sa kanya, Christmas last year, may binili siya sa 'kin na Gundam na ina-assemble.

The 25-year-old actor explained, “Mahilig kasi ako sa ganoon, e. Nagko-collect ako ng ganoon dati.”

IT’S A GUY THING. Whoever said toys are just for kids does not really know what they’re talking about.

(Admit it or not, most girls don’t understand why their boyfriends like collecting toys.)

For one, guys collect action figures to bring back good memories of their childhood.

Others consider them as good investments.

Transformers Masterpiece Acid Storm from Toys R Us priced at P4,999.75.

Most "big boys" only collect toys to display in their rooms or brag to friends.

Others get their hands on limited edition toys for future resale.

Believe it or not, these toys tend to increase its value over time, and even higher when they are unboxed or unused.

COMIC BOOKS. Aside from action figures, a lot of boys are also into comic books, which is another great idea to give to big boys this Christmas.

What you can get them is a copy of DC Comics: The New 52.

National Book Store offers the first issue of this latest comic book series at P5,949.00.

The New 52 is a 2011 revamp and relaunch of DC Comics series, which features the entire line of ongoing superhero comic books.

It includes the characters from Justice League, like Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, plus many other characters whose series had been previously canceled.

It's quite a mouthful to think and talk about if you're not a comic book fan, but the boys in your life are definitely going to have a grand time seeing a copy of The New 52 inside their stocking on Christmas Day.
