Vogue Philippines’ discerning edit for the holiday season brings together the best local finds, luxurious experiences, and leveled up splurges for your consideration. Last on your list is the one you’ve been putting off all this time: that impossible to gift, that friend who has it all.
That one person who has it all is simultaneously the easiest and the hardest person on your gifting list. On one hand, it will be the thought that counts. On the other hand, it will be the thought that counts.
We’re not saying it’s easy, but we are saying that it’s doable. Go the way of thoughtfulness, of items that are practical yet luxurious in their form. A corduroy suit set from Comme des Garçons at 8 Rockwell in Makati can go from tech startup meeting to holiday dinner easily; a regenerated nylon backpack in Prada’s new size is easy for the everyday and for travel; and the Ricoh GRIIIx can knock any iPhone out of the water.
Vogue Philippines lists down all the things they could possibly want–because these are exactly what we want as well for ourselves:
