Gifts.

You know how we receive 'generic' gifts during special days like Christmas and our birthdays?  Most of us dislike it but I won't mind receiving the following so-called generic gifts for my birthday (which was yesterday, by the way :))


1. Bath products

I love baths!  So I don't mind receiving bath products, provided that the scents are to my liking.  No dizzy floral scents please.  I'm really loving verbena-like scents ever since Shangri-La Boracay introduced us to L'Occitane products.

2. Chocolates

Who wouldn't like receiving chocolates?  I have a sweet tooth so I'd appreciate it any day of the week!  I eat all kinds of chocolate except those with mint.  I feel like I'm brushing my teeth while eating chocolates.  Weird.


See's chocolate boxes are the best!!

3. iTunes Card

Any denomination would do! $5, $10, $15.. I really would appreciate any amount because I'm addicted to Apple apps!  Seriously.  Any takers? :)

4. Make-up

I say make-up not because I'm a make-up junkie but because I'm the opposite!  If no one gives me make-up, I really won't buy any for myself.  So, I love receiving them as gifts, especially the really complicated palettes.


Sephora palettes.

These are only my top 4 generic gifts I don't mind receiving.  Others would be room fragrances/diffusers/candles (again no dizzy scents please) and cute pouches (because I like my stuff organized inside my bag).  

How about you?  Do you mind receiving what they call 'generic' gifts?

  1. I think I'm with you on this one!! As long as they are products from brands I like or curious about, or perfumed with my favorite scents, I'd be happy to receive them. However, I must admit that if they're not and especially if they're the opposite of what I like, I can get a bit frustrated as I would most probably have to give them to someone else... Or they'll be "collecting dust" on my shelves until they expire. Which never makes me feel good. So I guess I appreciate it when people take some time to find out what's that that I like. At least I always do my best to choose something that is to a person's taste, so it's only fair I expect it from them too.

  2. The thing I love about being a girl is that there are a lot of wonderful "generic" gifts for us! Honestly, it's harder to choose gifts for men!

  5. hi! sumilon cottages are lined in the same area situated on top of the island. you have to walk down to go to the beach area. sumilon is a small island, so you don't have to walk far. in fact, you can walk the entire island in less than half a day. :)
