Need to send premium holiday hampers to your clients, colleagues or special people in your life? Manila’s luxury hotels annually put together holiday packages filled with treats from their own bakeshops, food outlets and bars. They also throw in small gifts inside, like stuffed toys and figurines, to personalize the hampers.
Since Filipinos haven’t had many opportunities to do staycations with the coronavirus lockdowns this year, now is the time to bring your fave hotel into your home—or share it with special people.
