‘Tis the season of giving, and as always, we’re here to show you all the pretty little things you can give. If you’re still making your list and checking it twice, don’t skip out on these special giftables. After all, there’s no better time than now to gift beautiful!
Let’s be honest: White Elephant can go one of two ways—you pick a friend and have intel on exactly what they want, or you choose a person you barely know and have no idea what to get them. Trust us, we’ve been there.

So to save you from the unnecessary stress, we’ve put together a curated list that’ll make it easy for you to find a gift that’s sure to impress. Yes, this goes for whichever side of camp you’re on—family, friend, colleague, or acquaintance. For all that and more, read on for 8 unique white elephant gifts to round out the holiday season.

1. Scentence Secret Bouquet Body Lotion, P1,080
Rather than gifting a bath and body set for the nth time, swap it for this instead: a beautifully packaged lotion that’s creamy, luxurious, and fragrant in the best way possible. Infused with premium Damask Rose Flower Water as the base, not only does it smell like an absolute dream, it’s sure to make anyone feel pampered with every pump.

2. Wish Formula The Bat Eye Mask with Centella Honey Fermented Essence, now on sale at P99 (limited time only)
Pick someone you aren’t close to? Here’s a failsafe gift: a bat-shaped eye mask that smoothens, firms, and brightens skin. Sure, it probably screams Halloween more than Christmas, but packed with ingredients like centella asiatica, adenosine, vitamin C, and honey fermented essence? It’ll keep their under-eyes from spooking anyone no matter what month it is.

3. SNAILWHITE Shimmer and Glow Kit (Save P30), now on sale at P349 (limited time only)
This duo pairs two of SNAILWHITE’s bestselling products—the Whipp Soap, which racked up 700+ reviews—with their latest launch, the Icy Mask, a current 5-star favorite. Both work well together to boost skin overnight, so even if the lucky person you picked is recovering the morning after, this limited edition kit has them covered.
