Taking Gifting to the Next Level

Christmas is truly our favorite season of the year and it is fast approaching. The season of merriment, joyful celebrations such as reunions and gatherings, receiving and accepting gifts is one of the best parts of it. 
Speaking of gifts, If you were you're going to be asked for your Christmas wish list, what would it be?

For me, my simply extravagant wish list for this Christmas would be a combination of a technology upgrade, a two-wheeled to go equipment and a baking aid. 

When I started my world online I was not that very particular with the technology I am using. I started using a desktop at home doing usual online browsing plus some social media activities. Before I never knew that I needed more but as time and technology progress I needed a fast-reliable and that can catch up with the demand of my blogging world. Also, the benefit of bringing it anywhere I go. This Asus Zenbook UX 305CA is the perfect notebook I can wish for this Christmas. 

One of my passion is cooking and baking. I find it as a relaxing activity especially when I share it with my kids. With this baking oven, I can create any sweet dessert for the sweet tooth creatures I have at home... well, they got it from me, haha! From cakes to muffins to simple bread would be a click away from them to enjoy. Who knows this time I can get my wish from Santa SM! :)

My last wish and I think might be granted with a little more patience and work is a new mountain bike which I can use to get in shape and go around road biking like I used to do before when I had so many available time in my hands. My first on my Christmas wish list. 

My eldest son is a sporty teenager, from soccer to badminton to table tennis he never gets tired. This is the perfect gift idea I have for him and it is a pricey gift idea but I know he will go ecstatic to receive his own GoPro Hero set for Christmas. 

For my daughter, this pink FujiFilm Instax Mini8 would be the best gift she can receive this Christmas although she knows this pink Instax camera is pricey she still hopes to get one of this. Gift ideas for girls are limitless as long as it is
Pink cute you can go with it. :)

With all the Christmas wish and ideas that I mentioned above, there is also a part of giving back and sharing some to others especially to those in need. 

Giving a portion of what you have is the biggest to someone. I and my kids have this simple act of kindness for the past years to give out their old and new clothes, toys, and food to less fortunate kids in an Aeta community. Kanawan village is a small village 90 minutes away from the city. You can get there via land transportation and a 30-minute trek up the hill. This year we will be doing the same thing send out toys and clothes to some children there and give a little smile on their faces. 

In the photos below are the previous gift gifting to the community along with some sponsors and with my photography buddies whose passion is to create wonderful photos and can bring smiles to people regardless of what they have in life? We shoot, we share and we care. 
Same as what SM upholds its tagline... SM Cares! "There's joy in giving this Christmas!"

Since we will be needing more items to give away this Christmas to the community, I am happy to find out that SM will give out discounted prices from toys to clothes to even gift baskets which we can avail at a less cost.  We can spend more and can give out more in quantity.

The smiles can never be brought by any amount of money we have, the joy that we can give can be stretch a thousand times to every single kid in this community.
