We took down notes and made lists on what’s hot and fresh in home and personal care—perfect for gifting!
We don’t know about you, but we’re starting Christmas preparations early this year. Revenge shopping or not, we’re learning (we’re getting there, okay!) that shopping for gifts ahead instead of joining the holiday rush saves a lot of time, money and brain space. So as we keep up with what’s hot and fresh in the lifestyle space, be it home or personal care, we’re taking down notes and making lists so that you don’t have to in this month's Wonder Treats.
Up ahead, local goods all in one place, a homegrown clean beauty brand, and more:
Filipino Christmas essentials, right this way
Kultura launched its very first Kultura Christmas Market at The Podium, and it has everything you need for a very Filipino Christmas. Here, you’ll find eco-friendly decor, local food and drinks and beautiful accessories and apparel you’d want to wear this holiday season. Shop and sample exotic local liquor, coffee and tea, and you might just receive a special treat!
Catch Kultura’s Christmas Market in all Kultura branches nationwide.
Make way for a new local beauty brand that’s clean, effective and non-toxic
For Keeps, a new local beauty brand, makes clean beauty accessible to everyone. Start and end your day with For Keeps’ range of clean, effective, non-toxic and simple products that will put the fun back in the way you shower and wash up!
Meet ARISE, an invigorating blend of 100% pure essential oils such as lemon, lime, peppermint, calamansi, dalandan, orange and bergamot. It's the perfect way to start your day.
CLEANSE unlocks memories by the sea and is made with cold pressed coconut and olive oils with a blend of 100% pure essential oils, like tea tree, peppermint, lemongrass.
Then there’s the everyday and travel companion, PROTECT Hand Sanitizer. It helps kill bacteria while staying #KindToPlanet. Formulated with 65% ethyl alcohol, this sanitizer is non-drying thanks to ingredients, like aloe vera, and an intoxicating blend of tea tree, peppermint, eucalyptus and lemon essential oils.
End your day with UNWIND; it’ll leave the senses calm and the skin sweet-smelling because of its star ingredient, lavender.
For Keeps is #KindToBody and #KindToPlanet as all products are sustainably-made with less energy consumption during production and less plastic for packaging. Refill options, the For Keeps recycling program, and sustainability efforts are in practice, too!
Dermatologically tested and suitable for most skin types, consider the switch to #RadicallyHonestBodyCare with For Keeps’ clean range of soap, and hand and body washes.

An early gift for creatures of delivery habit
Let's be real, the pandemic pretty much increased our dependence on food delivery apps, whether it's your daily caffeine fix or a need-for-treats type of situation. We've all encountered high fees on top of the things we order. While that might push others to save, it still can pose as an inconvenience to others who use the app almost daily. So give yourself or your loved ones an early gift of savings with the help of GrabUnlimited.
The monthly subscription plan grants members access to free deliveries, promos and exclusive discounts all for a monthly fee of P9 on the first month and P49 for succeeding cycles. For example, free delivery applies to GrabFood orders with a minimum spend of P600. The best part? This also extends to other Grab services, such as GrabCar and GrabExpress. Check out the amazing perks subscribers can get for this month:
Along with free delivery, GrabFood users can also claim additional vouchers that amount up to P250 off:
● P40 OFF with min. spend of P400 (2x)
● P50 OFF, with min. spend of P800 (2x)
● 25% OFF on Self Pick-Up orders with min. spend of P500 (3x)
Meanwhile, get to places for less by availing of GrabCar discounts that go up to P250 off:
● 15% OFF (max of P75) on GrabCar 4-seater (2x)
● 20% OFF (max of P100) on GrabCar 6-seater (1x)
Send out items while staying on budget with the help of these GrabExpress discounts:
