Be the Santa You Want to Be with These Must-Have Christmas Gifts




Christmas season is that one time of year when we get to treat ourselves and our loved ones to some truly fancy stuff. Nothing rewards a year-long grind better than a luxury gift, after all, but wading in blind to every holiday collection is hardly advisable: better make that splurging spree count.

Worry no more, as this guide lists down some choice premium gift ideas that will help anyone ace their Christmas shopping expedition. Let’s get started!
Invoke Lady Luck with Jewelry

For the lady who deserves everything, there’s no going wrong with a Van Cleef & Arpels set of jewellery. A signature piece (or several) from the French jewellery house’s iconic Alhambra collection will adorn the recipient with precisely-cut four-leaf clover emblems, draping her with the symbol of luck in the most fashionable way possible.



25 Shades of Chic
The Boys and Girls 25 Piece Set is a box of Tom Ford’s lipstick creations, with each beautiful shade named after a male or female celebrity that the American luxury fashion designer admires. From the fierce red hues of Dylan and Jagger to the luminous textures of Gal and Scarlett, every lip color in this set just exudes a signature Hollywood flair.

The Smartest Camera on the Smartest Phone (for pretty much anyone)
There’s only one gift appropriate for a techie loved one, or if you’re just well and truly stumped for ideas – the Huawei Mate 20 Pro. Huawei’s latest masterpiece features a staggering combination of unbeatable Leica Triple Camera optics, a super-powerful yet super-efficient Kirin 980 brain, a 4200 mAh workhorse of a battery, and AI capabilities that automate everything from camera experience to app management. A new ultra wide angle-lens at the rear module adds a dramatic advantage to landscape shots while the upgraded Master AI enables lightning quick, real time scene-to-scene adjustments in every shooting situation.

In terms of endurance, the Mate 20 Pro excels at giving and receiving: SuperCharge tech lets the phone top up from low to 70% in 30 minutes, Wireless Quick Charge speeds up the tangle-free charging convenience, and Reverse Wireless Charging essentially converts the Mate 20 Pro into a powerbank capable of juicing up other compatible devices.

Combined with upgrades on EMUI 9.0, the Huawei Mate 20 Pro redefines what a smartphone can do, resulting in an unparalleled and memorable user experience. Throw in that fetching new Emerald color option and you can’t help but get one even just for yourself.

While the saying “It’s the thought that counts” for gift-giving still rings true, a premium gift counts for plenty on the receiver’s end – consider it 365 days’ worth of happiness you’re wrapping up and giving away.

HUAWEI, in celebration of the brand’s successes this year, has a big treat for all of you this festive season! HUAWEI’s Christmas Grand Promotion will help anyone ace their Christmas shopping expedition. Starting November 16 until January 15 2019, HUAWEI is giving away amazing free gifts when you purchase their selected devices!

Our intent is to bring Ayala Land's Christmas tradition to the communities south of Metro Manila.” said John Estacio, Nuvali General Manager.

Julie Anne exhibits radiance and charm with the V11


                                 
Singer-songwriter and actress Julie Anne San Jose has come a long way with her talents. With a career that has spanned more than a decade, Julie Anne has worn many hats: from acting in soaps to producing albums to singing and writing her own songs. Young, beautiful, and full of ambitions, Julie Anne makes the perfect Vivo endorser as she embodies what the brand is: Youthful, beautiful, edgy, and a relentless innovator.



Julie Anne started out very young; no wonder at the age of 24, she already has a multitude of accomplishments under her belt.

I started singing at two and a half years old. It was my grandparents’ idea to pursue my singing, to pursue being an artist. Then, they encouraged me to join various pageants like Little Miss Philippines. But I stopped for a while because I need to continue my schooling,” she said as she reminisced her ups and downs in the industry. 

“I’m just very glad and super-blessed that I have the chance now to pursue my grandparents’ dream and my dream as well. Ever since I was a kid, I’m really passionate about music,” Julie Anne added. 


Julie Anne says it’s important to keep innovating herself to offer fresh takes on her craft.


With a relatively long career in entertainment, Julie Anne never fails to put herself on the spotlight despite the many new artists that come along. In her performances and TV appearances, Julie Anne consistently exudes beauty and confidence as she reinvents her appearance and continuously hone her talents.

Vivo is very much the same. The brand relentlessly aims to produce phones with designs that are aesthetically pleasing and highly functional. Sleek and chic, Vivo smartphones are a powerhouse both in specs and design.

“Vivo is a super nice brand. I’m really into selfies. I’m just really glad that Vivo got me as one of its endorsers. I’m just happy to be part of the family… I love Vivo’s features like the In-Display Fingerprint scanner and the camera and the Face ID access,” Julie Anne said. 



This is why Vivo and Julie Anne are made for each other. Just like the young songstress, Vivo always reinvents itself with new technology that gives the brand a competitive edge amongst all its other contemporaries. A prolific innovator, Vivo is always ahead of its competitors in terms of cutting-edge technology.



Julie Anne is a proud Vivo endorser.

“I’m really looking forward to more of Vivo’s new smartphones and technology in the future and share them to the youth,” Julie Anne said.

It is exciting to see a bright, young celebrity and a respected global brand collaborate. There is so much in store and to look forward to with Julie Anne and her campaigns for Vivo. #

Warning from SM Cinema: The Grinch is Back to Steal Christmas!



Here’s a warning from SM Cinema and Illumination Entertainment! Make sure you really prepare for the holidays as the unsociable and ill-tempered Grinch is back, planning to steal Christmas in the animated version of Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch showing in SM Cinema this November.

The film follows the story of The Grinch together with his loyal dog, Max, as he faces his most hated time of the year, the Christmas season. When his Whoville neighbors are preparing and celebrating for the holidays, The Grinch is planning to steal Christmas and silence the Whos’ holiday cheer once and for all. Will the Grinch finally succeed and achieve his dream peace?



From the studio that created the The Despicable Me franchise, Illumination Entertainment once again presents an animation that will be loved by the whole family, the animated adaptation of a Dr. Seuss classic, The Grinch. Directed by Yarrow Cheney and Scott Mosier, the film features the voices of actors Benedict Cumberbatch as The Grinch, Cameron Seely as Cindy Lou-Who, Rashida Jones as Donna Who and Pharell Williams as the Narrator.

King Sue is a delicious greeting one could give and receive this special season

Whatever business you're in, staying top of mind with clients and employees is key. And what better time than Christmas to let them know of your gratitude and appreciation for a productive year of working together. If you’re looking for presents for them, give the gift of food.

A KING SUE ham, for instance, is a great give-away that will be appreciated by everyone. Plus, you don’t need to spend for fancy wrapping because it comes with its own gift bag.



The Hawaiian Ham Christmas Loaf is a clear favorite, so is the Pear-shaped Ham that is  budget-friendly but  rich in flavor. Spread the Season’s sweetness with King Sue Piña ham, crafted from of a solid piece of boneless ham leg with absolutely no extenders.  Impress your business associates and partners with this rich and smoky ham that  complements its  sweet flavorful brine, topped with a specially-made glaze.



Extend more sweetness via the King Sue Sweet Ham, crafted from a solid piece of premium pork, the most kid-friendly of the whole selection because of its sweet-enough, good-enough taste. But of course, it’s  loved by  adults as well! This versatile ham could also be an ingredient in sandwiches, pizzas, pastas and  other  dishes.



But perhaps nothing spells festive than King Sue’s Chinese Ham Bone-in made from premium quality pork leg.  Imagine the time it takes to craft a single piece. Each leg is cured for 30 days,  smoked with imported wood chips for four to seven days then  cooked for one  day in a special brine.  The skin is then removed and the surface torched with a sugar coating to impart that glaze that gives it a sweet caramelized finish.

So much love (without shortcuts) goes into each Chinese bone-in ham, as it is obvious in the depth of flavor that only time can give. That said, it is the ultimate gift for special and loyal clients and corporate allies.

Should you wish to make your own  Christmas basket, visit kingsue.com and check of other products such as bacons, sausages, sliced ham and cold cuts, chorizos, deli-burger, corned beef, pork and chicken tocino and sisig among others. No doubt about it, King Sue is  a delicious greeting one could give and receive this special season.
