Invoke the holiday spirit as you shop for remarkable locally-made gifts for your loved ones.
As the holiday season is approaching, the time of gift-giving will once again commence, igniting happiness, warmth, and the spread of love. The sharing of one’s graces doesn’t end in these difficult times, especially at Christmas. If you are selecting presents as early as this time, why not browse through the lovely local pieces in this year’s Designers’ Holiday Bazaar? Curated by Bea Zobel Jr. and Sofia Zobel-Elizalde, the annual bazaar launches on November 18. It gathers more than 30 local brands and designers. 20% of the sales will fund scholarships for underprivileged children. Truly, a meaningful and wonderful cause to be part of in this gift-giving season.
The roster of local designers and brands joining this year’s Designers’ Holiday Bazaar include Piopio, Bea Valdes, Jewelmer, and Riqueza Jewellery. These exceptional established brands you can expect to see in the bazaar offer a variety of both their new collections and signature pieces.
Emerging labels and artisans are part of the bazaar as well. From the beloved Cordillera coffee of What’s Up Brew? the aromatic herbs and self-care essentials of Tanglaw, the sugarcane fiber-made style pieces of Kanya, to the timeless home decor of OMO Furniture, you are certain to find a piece you wouldn’t resist taking home—for yourself or to give to a loved one.
The new retail experience
This year’s bazaar is a little different—you can choose to shop online or visit the bazaar on the ground floor of Greenbelt 5. You need not worry about physical shopping as there are curated selections displayed in contactless showrooms. Of course, strict health protocols are practiced and so you can safely browse through the marvelous, exclusive pieces. If you want to be extra cautious, you can opt for a personal shopper—an addition to the wonders of a convenient shopping experience.
