Butternut Bakery Heads to the South!

Your butter half is now at SM Mall of Asia and Alabang West Parade 


The looming pandemic has changed how we display our love and appreciation for one another. Many thanks to the growing number of delivery options available in the metro, sending over food (and padala) is more convenient. Cakes and other pastries are no longer just for special occasions, but are also perfect for an intimate handaan (gathering) at home, or even just to tell someone you miss them. 


More people can now enjoy the selection of mouthwatering cakes over at Butternut Bakery—from the all-time crowd-favorite Brazo to their newest creation, an ode to the world’s best mangoes, the Guimaras Mango Créme Cake—with new locations in the metro.

The Rustan’s Tradition Continues 

It’s gifting season once again 


Holiday season is here and as early as September, we’ve been going through our list of friends and family, thinking about what to get them for Christmas. We started ours with our favorite little people—kids of loved ones and/or our own. Below, gift ideas to spark their creativity offline: 


Hape’s All-in-1 Kitchen 

A play kitchen set is an all-time favorite for kids (and kids at heart). Hape’s All-in-1 Kitchen is complete with all kinds of appliances—a pretend coffee maker, sink, oven, and more—and is made for kids who enjoy role-playing as a chef with the fam.


Janod Silver Magnetic Rocket Kit 

Did someone say, best Tito or Tita? Little space explorers will surely enjoy the Janod Silver Magnetic Rocket Kit. The rocket comes in five magnetic parts, which can easily be assembled and disassembled as little ones spend hours imagining space adventures with astronauts and aliens across the universe.



Klaypel Artsy Kits 

There’s always something for the artsy kids at Rustan’s. Check out Klaypel Artsy Kits, which contains six colors, two bamboo applicators, and a 9” x 14” wooden board with a cute illustration. Perfect for all ages, this gift can definitely be for the grown-ups, too.



Looking for practical gifts? Rustan’s also offers clothes, accessories and other essentials, including lunch boxes.
