Christmas Gift Items: The Pinaka Hindi Pinag-Isipan Edition
Also known as "Ang Pinaka Gasgas na Christmas Gifts."
ART Clare Magno

The saying "It's the thought that counts" doesn't apply to these gifts, which are mostly generic items. But the fact that someone thought of including you in their gift list does count! Can you recall a Christmas that you haven't gotten at least one of the items in the list below? Presenting: "Ang Pinaka Hindi Pinag-isipan na Christmas Gifts" from the book The Best of Ang Pinaka by Summit Books!

  1. Food

Because giving food as gifts is easy, convenient, and practical for the gifter, and always a welcome present for the giftee.

  1. Umbrellas

Also known as the leveled up version of convenience and drug store Christmas giveaways, which are mostly calendars!

  1. Towels

Pasok sa budget and practical!

  1. Beauty packs

A nice gift to give to friends without really thinking long and hard about what they need and want.

  1. Scented candles

Because the post-peak of scented candles is still pretty strong for some strange reason.

  1. Picture frames

To the point that picture frames are now considered the poster items for bad gifts. "Anong nakuha mo?" "Sana hindi picture frame!"

  1. Figurines

Or jars, or a set of glasses—anything babasagin, mostly.

  1. Calendars and planners

These are gifts that double as promotional items for convenience stores, drug stores, and several companies.

  1. Pens

Same with calendars and planners, pens with the company name printed on it are more of marketing freebies than gifts.

  1. Mugs and tumblers

Mugs and tumblers are pretty useful...if only you didn't have a ton of them yet!

Read more funny lists in Summit Books' The Best of Ang Pinaka (definitely a gift that's pinag-isipan!), available at all leading bookstores for only P250.
