Great plants to give as gifts this Christmas

Just a few more days before Christmas and you haven’t bought anything to give your friends and relatives. Have your thought of giving them plants? There are a number of good plants that you can give as gifts. Plants are sustainable and environmentally friendly. You can grow the following plants inside your house. Taking care of indoor plants improves the quality of air you breathe and it reduces stress.

You may check the nearest bazaar or market in your area to buy these ornaments. These flowering plants and herbs are quite popular not only among the oldies but the young consumers as well. Happy shopping!

Amihan Sling by Hinabi.ph

This is my first native (rattan) sling bag aptly called Amihan Sling. I purchased this through Hinabi.ph. I got interested in the bag after seeing my friend post (or share) about it on Facebook. 

What’s so interesting about this bag is that it was made (one of the many products weaved and produced) by Alangan Mangyan Tribe from Paitan in Oriental Mindoro. 

According to Hinabi.ph, they are helping the Mangyans bring their handicrafts to a wider audience. Check out their FB page here.

Back to my sling bag. I bought the large size to accommodate important things when going out. I picked the one with dark brown leather strap, which Rei (from Hinabi.ph) said is free vegan leather made by the local leather artisans of Marikina. 

So, what do you think of my Amihan Sling? I’m just excited to use it soon. 

Mother’s Day Gifts that Say I Love You

My family is not big on giving gifts. We love receiving one but we don’t complain if we don’t get anything on special occasions. We spend on take outs and food deliveries if there are occasions or events to celebrate.

This Mother’s Day, I’ve got two lovely gifts from my special people. Thanks my loves!
