Have you started your Christmas shopping?
If not, these ideas may help you save a lot of money, even time and effort.
But first, you have to choose a gift that your inaanak or pamangkin or tita will appreciate. It should be unisex and useful.
Second, make the purchase online or with just one trip to the mall.
Check out these ideas we spotted on the Instagram accounts of celebrities.
These were actually the giveaways of Gladys Reyes when her son Grant celebrated his sixth birthday.
The good thing about Gladys's supplier @arteegram, it can print Instagram photos on any cloth material.
2) Hoodie bath towels
Bianca Gonzalez picked the monster design, but you can choose other characters.
