11.11 Shopping Festival: A Gift Guide For The Holidays

Have you ever wondered what’s the best day to buy your holiday gifts? 

Well, why not give the year’s biggest sale day a shot! 11.11 is fast approaching with amazing deals and discounts that you don’t want to miss. Tracing its roots back to China, the world’s largest annual shopping festival first came to be as a celebration of singlehood, with the date itself being popularly referred to as Singles’ Day. November 11, to put it simply, is the perfect day to go on an all-out therapeutic shopping spree.  

Naturally, with the recent boom of online shopping here in the Philippines, it’s not at all surprising to see rapidly growing platforms like Shopee and Lazada adopt the holiday, especially when it’s so close to the Christmas season. And that’s what this online gift guide is for! For all those excitedly scrambling to add holiday gift ideas to their cart, we’ve got you covered.
