Giving gifts is one of the ways Maine Mendoza, Alden Richards, and Mimiyuuuh express their love to their closest friends and family members.
It’s also one of their favorite traditions every Christmas, and the coming holidays are no exception.
Maine, Alden, and Mimiyuuuh have all started shopping for Christmas gifts early. But in a virtual interview ahead of Lazada’s 12.12 Christmas Sale, the trio disclosed that they have yet to complete their respective wishlists.
Asked what she bought her friends and family members for Christmas, Maine said, “Well, I’m planning to give the gadgets and the gadget accessories, the home decors, and the cute appliances to some of my friends and family ’cause I know that they would love it.
“The COVID essentials naman, yung disinfectant sprays and all, will be for my colleagues since we all need it sa workplace especially kapag outdoors and anytime din, they can bring it wherever they go.”
Mimiyuuuh, on the other hand, is planning to give her parents, Tatay Amadz and Nanay Bheng, a new phone and a weighing scale.
The 25-year-old YouTube vlogger said, “Yung phone po, I will give it to my parents kasi nagre-request po sila ng bagong cellphone ngayong Pasko.”
Mimiyuuuh added, “[Yung weighing scale] kailangan na nila ma-maintain ang kanilang weight kasi we want to live a healthy lifestyle. And para, you know, we want to welcome 2022 with a great body!”
Mimiyuuuh also has a few things she would like to give herself for Christmas. The first one is a table and chair set-up where she can do her work.
“Yung working table and chair, I will give it to myself kasi kapag nagwu-work ako, dito lang ako sa bed ko.
“E siyempre, we want to, you know, separate work from rest. You know what I’m sayin’?
She also wants to get herself an electric lighter for her candles.
“Sobrang sustainable po nung electric lighter kasi I love collecting candles and hindi ko na kailangan pang mag-light ng posporo.
“So itsa-charge ko lang siya, ipe-press ko lang siya and then, ‘Oh! We got some light up in here!'”
Alden had already bought his gifts for his friends and inaanaks. But the gift he can’t wait to give his family is their holiday vacation abroad.
Alden said, “Kasi ngayon, I’m planning to celebrate the holidays abroad so nag-advance Christmas shopping na ako for my inaanaks, and of course, yung ibang mga kaibigan ko especially, mga co-workers ko na madalas kong kasama.
“Sila yung kinuha ko diyan ng gift, of course.”
