With only four days to go before Christmas Eve, the lot of us are in a mad rush to complete our Christmas lists! This is the last weekend before the big day so this is pretty much our last chance to get those last minute presents for our loved ones. And with crazy traffic and crowded malls as our major road blocks, it is really better for us to know what to buy before making that trip to the mall. No doubt, it can be quite overwhelming to go from store to store without a plan (or a list), which is why I’ve decided to share my little Christmas shopping trip to Muji with you, so you don’t have to walk aimlessly throughout the entire mall before you decide what to buy.
Muji is all about design and function, which pretty much guarantees that the person you’ll be buying the present for will love his/her gift. This Japanese premium lifestyle brand carries streamlined products and designs that are clean, classic and true to their function. I love Muji, and this has always been my go-to store when buying gifts for my family and friends. I remember having to buy all my Christmas gifts from Muji Hongkong, when I used to work as a model (I was usually in Hong Kong from September to December). Of course, that was before Muji opened here in Manila so my only setback then was paying for my excess baggage. Now that Muji is all over Metro Manila, I really don’t have to worry about all that and I get to buy the best gifts for my loved ones. Muji is globally known for their best-sellers such as the Muji to Go travel size PET bottles, Luggage, Neck Cushion, Organic Cotton garments, ergonomic Furniture, recycled Notebooks, pens and eco-friendly, polypropylene Storage Boxes.
So I picked out six Christmas gift ideas that any of your loved ones with absolutely love. These are super useful, innovative and they look good, too! Check these out.
