Throwback Post: 2015 Christmas Beauty Goodies from the UK

I can’t help but post these beautiful gifts that my sister and her family sent to our family last 2015.  Here in the Philippines, we call this gifts as pasalubong. Generally, Wikipedia defines pasalubong as gifts being sent from abroad after a Filipino traveller arrives home from one’s trips regardless if it’s for business or leisure.  In our case, the gifts were sent to us by their friend who was coming home to the Philippines. Nevertheless, it’s still a pasalubong no matter what.

We’re lucky to be living in an age where advancements like Skype are available. On Sundays that we have these sessions, my sister and I will have these conversations. Then, they will ask us what we want to have for Christmas.

If you’re someone who has been to the Philippines, you were likely to get souvenirs from the shops here like SM Department Store’s Kultura, or similar stores that sell Filipiniana. Filipiniana is the general term used for products made here in the Philippines.

Here are some of the things we got :

Technically, socks are not beauty items, and still I want to include this as well.
