Birthday gift-shopping day

I was finally able to get a birthday gift for Dane! His birthday is tomorrow and I have been racking my brains, thinking what I can possibly get a guy who already has everything. My friends and officemates came up with very "creative" answers, but I don't think I will be giving him any of those in the near future :D

Today my housemate Asther and I went to TriNoma so she can help me look for a gift, and maybe do some shopping on the side.


housemates :)

I thought of giving him a shirt from Team Manila as he doesn't have one yet.


Team Manila, TriNoma

Team Manila is a local brand conceptualized by Filipino graphic designers whose merchandise's theme revolves around Pinoy pop culture. I am happy that local designers are getting more attention and support now more than ever. Pinoy pride at its finest. :)

They sell shirts for men and women, button pins, canvas bags, wallets, laptop sleeves, ID and cellphone holders, even lomo cameras! I love the interior of the store, and their designs are so cool! Just look at the recyclable plastic bag:


They made our National Hero Dr. Jose P. Rizal look modern and cool

I will post a photo of the shirt I got him tomorrow so it'll still be a surprise in case he gets to read this. In the meantime, let me share with you some of the stuff I got.


Clear umbrella and clear toolbox with pink handles from Japan Home Center and cheetah-print convertible headband/ scarf from Landmark


black boatneck tee and thin silver belt from Genevieve Gozum

I only got a few things. Quite surprising, yes? Umm, I am actually reining myself in because Christmas is coming! :D

I am excited for tomorrow! I hope he likes my gift. I mean, I agree it's not really creative as compared to one I would have made myself, but I love the design of the shirt I got for him! What about you, can you share memories of the best gift you ever got someone? :)

Nice naman ng blog. I'll be celebrating my birthday next this April 7. Aside from birthday cards I hope I can have a good gift from my parents. I really want to have that Ipad 2 in my hands!
