or just invite your family to dinner at your house.
or treat them in a nice restaurant.
or bring them to a nice beach
or bring them to a nice public swimming pool.
-because its easier for your pocket and you get to taste the best Filipino food with them.

Watch for department store sale like Macy’s dillards Nordstrom when they go on sale – you can buy signature tshirt for less there.
Don’t forget to visit Big Lots, Aldi, Dollar General, Walmart and Dollar Stores and outlet stores too.

and don’t forget to buy things you will need when you reach Philippines, your convenience here abroad is not a convenience there most of the time it’s a luxury there, so better send ahead your needs properly.

and if you are an American and just visiting Philippines and just trying to look for things you want to give to friends/colleague upon arrival in Philippines, my advice is to just get them things that are priced around $50 to $100 range or below, I’m sure the recipient will be happy with that.
