Trip Planning Tip 7


Here’s a thoughtful gift for your journal-loving besties! Give the gift of mindfulness, presence, connection, positivity, and purpose with The Sunday Night Journal by Your Heart Crafted Life.

This helps create a weekly ritual to connect with oneself, reflect on things in life, and set meaningful priorities. How? There are weekly prompts that you need to ponder on and answer.

I bought their Volume 2 from last year. And this year they released Volume 3 and made the journaling experience more interactive and fun through the use of washi tapes for the prompts and to decorate the pages.

Trip Planning Tip 8

Dried Flowers

Spruce up your friend’s or sister’s WFH workspace by giving them dried flowers!

A quick search on Instagram will give you hundreds of sellers, but I personally tried and love FIORI by Shanelle.

They accept custom-made so you can request any preserved and dried flower arrangements you want.

What I like about them is that they have reasonable prices, easy to talk to, and they deliver on time. I even asked them if they can deliver my orders in advance, and they accommodated my rush request!

Homemade Peanut Butter

Give this Homemade Peanut Butter by The Fat Guys to that friend of yours who always loves snacking!

The Fat Guys originated from Cebu, but Nimi Philippines is their official reseller here in Manila.

Now your friends can enjoy guilt-free snacking as there are no artificial flavors added (and homemade ones are always better than commercial ones). They can spread this thick, creamy, buttery goodness on their choice of bread or eat a spoonful on its own.

They’re so good, I swear! I repurchased already so I’ll have some stash for the holidays.

They have bundles that come in holiday packaging, so they’re an excellent Christmas gift idea for loved ones!
