It is finally the holiday season. Everyone wants their fair share of gifts and treats, so much that all are also digging in their wallets and estimating the right amount that will fit with their shopping lists. While many stores offer promos and countless discounts, it would be safe to say that a critical part of managing ones budget isn’t just the price, but rather the amount of items to be given.
With that in mind, people are looking for a great bargain when it comes to shopping for gifts, a bargain that would enable them to purchase items multiple times and for a great value. You may ask then, what items would be fitting for my limited budget and where may I find them? Worry no more, as we had listed 20 stunning Christmas presents under 100 Pesos that you may give your loved ones, family, and friends:
1. Cellphone Holders
These items are one of the most affordable. Coming in at P19 apiece, they come in a variety of sizes (fit for any type of cellphone) and colors, truly a preppy gift for your friends.
2. Flower Pattern Nail Files
A gift for friends who are stylish and always on the go for grooming, these nail files are small enough to be kept in their purses and colorful enough to flaunt. They are also affordable, coming in at a price of only P66 at four files per set.
