H&M Gift Card
H&M just opened their first store here in the country last October 17 at Megamall following 2 other branches at Robinsons Magnolia and SM Makati. This brand has been such a big hit in the Philippines, that people actually lined up a day before the opening of the store. With the help of these gift cards, you too can shop 'till you drop (or until the credits last).
The great thing about these gifts is that almost all of them are local! Shopping gets even better when you're able to support local products.Happy shopping, Candy Girls!
