Christmas Gift Guide

Photographed by Borgy Angeles

Editor-in-chief Bea Valdes, along with the rest of the Vogue Philippines editors, leads the gifting season with a selection of well-considered presents for their nearest and dearest.

In the act of gift-giving, we often think long and hard about what the recipient would like. We embark on a journey reminiscing memories that we’ve shared with them, weaving it with our own observations on their interests and their personalities. But beyond that, tapping into their distinct hobbies could also be a way to present them with a gift that is tailored to their heart’s desires.
