Make it a colorful holiday season.

It’s less than 20 days before Christmas, and you know what that means: it’s gift-giving crunch time. It’s pretty much understood that the holiday season in the Philippines begins right at the onset of September, but with everything we have going on and the traffic of Manila, who has the time to shop? And, more importantly, what gifts do you get? Well don’t worry, we got you. We’ve gone through the entire BENCH/ store and picked out the best gifts for your loved ones, all by color. And if you’re looking for something special without breaking the bank, we’ve also included our holiday bundles in the mix — these start at just P58. Now make sure you’ve got your list and checked it twice, ‘cause it’s going to be a colorful Christmas.
