This school year has given us the biggest FOMO ever. With prom, intramurals, graduation ceremonies and parties getting cancelled (or going online), high school and college seniors have missed the picture-perfect ending they’ve been working for and dreaming about.
It might be difficult to replace those milestone experiences amidst the global pandemic, but it doesn’t mean you can’t spoil your fellow graduates and barkada (yourself included) with gifts! Online browsing and shopping for some inspiration? We gotchu! Our friends at ShopBack are here to provide you access to exclusive deals and coupons to help you save on all the giving you’ll be doing. TIP: Read ‘til the end to learn how to unlock bonus rewards.
Here are some of our favorite gifts for you to consider:
Cake & Flowers
Cake coupled with flowers are a classic route to making someone’s day. While a dedication cake is a perfect gift for all occasions, getting that big bouquet or that sunflower (for our fellow Iskos and Iskas) after receiving your diploma is definitely on the graduation wish list. Recreate that moment and check out Goldilocks and Flowestore.ph for some sweet deals!
For high school graduates who are now prepping for college entrance exams or are enrolled in some online classes, getting them their ‘new normal’ study essentials is a thoughtful gift. A foldable lap desk can be a lifesaver for students spending time on their laptops in bed or on the couch. Keyboards, fun desk lighting and headphones are a few other good options. Aliexpress and Miniinthebox have some great finds!
Tea and coffee
Help your iced coffee dependent friends by sending them coffee makers or even coffee beans! Shopee has a lot of cute and affordable French presses available, while you can shop for locally produced beans at Foodsource. Classy and perfect gifts to keep them powering through. If you’re looking to send someone their instant Milk Tea fix, Food Panda has you covered!
Graduates might be spending more time indoors than usual. Why not stock them up on some page-turning fiction novels to add to their home library and keep them occupied? Great deals are available on Book Depository and Ebooks.com.
Motivate your friends to stay healthy and active during this lockdown by sending them a workout kit that includes a jump rope, exercise mat and a few resistance bands. Feeling generous? Take it a step further with a few cute workout outfits available through Athleta and Nike.
