Gr8est Last-Minute Gifts
for the Ladies in Your Life
Enough with the mugs and the notebooks (except of course if that’s what they want). Here are 8 presents that say nothing less than “you’re important to me” — with most of them you can pick up today.
Jurassic Pot, P850-1,000
Jurassic Pot, makers of everyone’s favorite dinosaur cactus pots, has recently hatched Dinoskulls, a new design to house air plants (and your keys, jewelry and stationery).
These triceratops skulls will fit any shelf, living room, bedroom, or desk. And they come in a variety of finishes (we love the natural bone.) Get two because you’ll probably want one for yourself, too!
A Mellow Bowler
Mellow Clothing, P1,200
For the girl who loves streetwear, new local clothing brand Mellow recently released a line of cotton bowling shirts in yellow, pink and blue.
Stocks are limited and these shirts are almost gone, but if you hurry, you might still be able to get one on the site. Plus, shipping is free until the end of the year!
