Exchange gift season is here, and we all know you’re racking your brains for some great gift ideas for family, friends, and colleagues. Thankfully, there’s no need to break the bank to get them a present they’ll appreciate.

We’ve rounded up some of the items we’ve added to our carts in preparation for the lineup of Christmas parties happening this month. Here are 5 of our favorites!

Tasteful Exchange Gift Ideas Under 1,000 Pesos

For the digital nomad: Portable keyboard

Where to Buy: Lazada | Price: Php 199

Let’s face it, no one wants to be lugging around a regular-sized keyboard on top of a laptop and other gadgets. Help a work-from-anywhere friend out and gift him or her with a portable mini-Bluetooth keyboard!

This particular one that caught our eye comes in cute pastel colors, perfect for your aesthetic-conscious amiga. But don’t worry; for the ones who like it sleek and classy, this keyboard also comes in black.

For the heat-averse: Neck fan

Where to Buy: Lazada | Price: Php 765


With our year-long sweltering weather, sometimes a regular fan – or even a handheld one! – won’t cut it. Enter this neck fan, which can keep your recipient cool and fresh for hours on end.

This particular model features 10 hours of battery life, so for the price, we think it’s a steal. It can take you from your morning commute to your evening walk home without the need to keep charging.


For the organization lover: Thermal printer/label maker

Where to Buy: Lazada | Price: Php 899

You know those simple but cute labels you stick on your mason jars and sleek containers to label and organize your things? Well, you can make things a whole lot easier with this nifty thermal printer! Powered by Bluetooth, all you need to do is type in the desired label, and it comes right out ready to be used – no ink required.

This model already comes with one roll of tape, so your recipient can start using it right away. For friends who like to do a bit of spring cleaning before the new year, this gift will be a great help.


For the insomniac: Weighted blanket

Where to Buy: Lazada | Price: Php 888

Got a friend who’s struggling to get some sleep? Maybe this weighted blanket can help, as it’s known as an effective sensory tool for regulation, which can aid sleep. It does this through deep-pressure stimulation, which reduces stress and promotes relaxation.

Studies also indicate that a weighted blanket can help with anxiety, ADHD, and autism. But as always, check with your trusted doctor first before you purchase!


For the ambiance aficionado: Uniquely scented candles

Where to Buy: Simoy ng Haraya | Price: Php 799

For family and friends who love to lounge in their space and really invest in their ambiance, consider getting them a soy candle from Simoy ng Haraya. What we love about them is their uniquely Pinoy range of scents, among them Kastanyas, Panaderya, Tsoknut – even Puto Bumbong, Noche Buena, and Buko Pandan!

Any of these scents are sure to set a nostalgic mood that takes your recipient back to a special time, place, and moment. Alternatively, this shop sells room sprays and reed diffusers, too!
