As Christmas draws near, the time of gift-giving also approaches. We scratch our heads thinking of what to give our loved ones, friends and officemates that won’t be a repeat of last year.
We always search for something special and unique yet affordable but not cheap-looking. It’s a stressful and exasperating experience that when we finally chance upon that perfect, suitable gift for that particular person, it does feel like a Christmas miracle.
So to dispel the potential Ebenezer Scrooge in all of us, Healthy Options drew inspiration from Charles Dickens’ literary classic A Christmas Carol with its “A Christmas Story” Holiday 2018 Collection Preview that was unveiled recently at the flagship store in Shangri-La Plaza Mall.
The leading one-stop shop for all-natural products in the Philippines tapped into a lot of traditions that many people hold dear, and presented its gift packages inspired by ghosts that haunted Scrooge in Dickens’ book. Instead of ghosts, these are gifts.
“This year, we want to go back to something very classic and traditional. At Christmas, you want to help people think about childhood memories or what you think of as a classic Christmas. So we were actually inspired by A Christmas Story by Charles Dickens and hopefully we were able to translate that,” says Pam Suarez, Healthy Options brand director.
The “Gifts of Christmas Past” include The Gourmet, Family Feast, Gluten-free, Vitality and Low-Sodium gift boxes, while natural beauty products that do not harm the skin or the planet comprise “Gifts of Christmas Present.”
“Gifts of Christmas Yet to Come” are more personalized and an assortment of festive favorites from its well-curated product selection.
Also part of the Healthy Options 2018 Christmas Collection are the delicious organic wines and sparkling grape juices. Gifts of choice include the Healthy Options Christmas Gift Cards – available in denominations of P500 and P1,000 and redeemable in any of the 27 Healthy Options stores nationwide.
Healthy Options is the country’s largest all-natural product store, offers gluten-free to low-sodium food items, cruelty-free to non-GMO natural beauty products and supplements to support various health needs.
“Before, we were more into food, but now we’re trying to have more natural beauty products. We’re also going to online shopping because we also see the need that people don’t have enough time to go to the malls and they want something hassle-free, convenient and something they can do anytime even if they’re at home,” says Suarez.
