The end of the year isn't just a time to reflect on the past, but also an opportunity to prepare for the ~future~. Below, a few gift ideas you can get for yourself to help you stay motivated to keep your NY resolution:

1. Goal: Start eating better

TRY: Rawlicious Smoothies

Strengthening your immune system is now more important than ever, and one of the best ways to get that boost ~naturally~ is by consuming a ton of fruits and veggies. If it's easier for you to drink rather than eat your daily requirement, try getting help from these semi-sweet and super healthy smoothies.

2. Goal: Mastering the no-makeup makeup look

TRY: Maybelline Lifter Gloss


The key to the no-makeup look is to have a healthy skin base, and that includes your lips. The Tiktok-famous Maybelline Lifter Gloss comes with hyaluronic acid to keep those puckers healthy and hydrated while giving you the pop of color you need to ~look alive~ in your Zoom calls.

3. If you want to start to practice skincare religiously

TRY: Good Molecules

If you just can't seem to stick to a routine, you might want to start simple. Luckily, Good Molecules has a lot of gentle and beginner-friendly products you can mix and match until you find a routine that actually works for you.

4. If your goal is to learn a new language...

TRY: Coursera


Did you know? One of the most popular courses users in the Philippines take on Coursera is Learn to Speak Korean 1 from Yonsei University--perfect for K-drama fans, or those simply looking to *upskill* in 2022.

But if picking up a new language isn't your priority, you can always find courses that suit your personal goals. Fun fact: According to Coursera, the Philippines ranks number one globally for the highest increase in enrollments from women year-over-over!

5. If you want a fresh start...

TRY: Humble Sustainability


This is for those of you who don't feel the need to buy or splurge on anything this year. Sometimes, the best gift you can give yourself is to let go of things that no longer have a place in your life. And what better time than the new year to start decluttering? 

Humble Sustainability is a for-profit social enterprise that promotes and educates people on how to achieve a circular economy. They collect items people want to get rid of and partner with different charities and groups to figure out the best ways to reuse, recycle, or upcycle them. Win-win!
