Gift Ideas for your Boyfriend's Family

I know most of you are done with your Christmas Shopping but I wanna share with you cute items I've found in bazaars. These could potentially be the gifts to your boyfriend's family.

Boyfriend's Mom = Something useful and innovative

It is so hard to find a gift for "tita" as you may normally call her.  This particular "tita" of yours could be your future mother in law.  You do not want to give something overly extravagant or something cheap.  The key to mom's heart is to find something useful and innovative that she could use in the future.  Note:  Do not give clothes, not unless she has tried them on.  You do not want something to be said about your taste, do you?

This Cheese board with cutting tools looks really presentable for "tita".  Only Php799.
You can buy this in Karl Edwards Bazaar or look for W&R Trading, +63.2.5318051


Boyfriend's Dad =something cool.

The key to the heart of "tito" is the word "cool".  Usually, the safest gifts include liquor, wine and shirts.  However, this year, why not try looking for something different.  "Cool" in this context may be something that he does not know he needs yet, until he has it. 

Check out this Myer Luggage scale only Php 500.00.  Perfect for his travels, he could just simply attach this gadget to the bag and lift a little to find out the bag weight.  Also from W&R Trading, Karl Edwards +63.2.5318051.



Or maybe try the more high tech one.  Balanzza Digital Luggage Scale.  Comes with weight conversion mechanism, and flashlight for emergency during travel.  Balanzza is available in Rustan's Department Store in the Philippines for about Php 1,500-2,000.  Check out more info from www.balanza.com.  My husband got this as a present from our friend who's the current distributor in the Philippines.  It now comes in the classic and mini form.  It has been my husband's favorite travel accessory!





Boyfriend's Siblings = Something quirky

For your future bro and sis, give them something quirky so you can leave a fun impression to them or something that represents your common interest like music, fashion etc.

Here are some of our finds:

 This dictionary looking book, is actually a safe box!  Comes with own key.
Php 1,200 from Tava Novelties.  You may contact Kelly Uy +63.917.8307766
I found this cutesy in The Grove Rockwell Bazaar


If you have the same interest in music, you might want to give your future bro and sis this:


The Clutter Zap Earbones is the perfect solution for tangled earphones.  There was already something like this in the past but the innovative addition to this piece is the round holes where the buds of the earphones can be placed for safer storage.  I found this in Rockwell's Moonlit Bazaar for only Php 180 each! Check www.clutterzap.multiply.com for more information on this product.

Now that we've found unique gifts for your boyfriend's family, there's no more reason for giving them shirts, planners and the usuals.  With these unique finds, there's no reason for them not to make you the favorite son's girlfriend. hahaha.  Hope this helps. Good luck and Happy Shopping!

More bazaar finds to come.  Visit Jean & Rosz at the Cuenca, St. James Bazaar this coming Friday to Monday!  Baraars are fun!  See you!
