Rustan’s chairman and CEO Nedy Tantoco says that what makes Christmas sweetest for her is getting together with the whole family. “We’re very close-knit and for my father, it’s a very important requirement," she says. “We should all be with him on Christmas Eve even our children studying abroad come home for that.”

“The sweetest Christmas is about the sentiments of the season,” says Dina Arroyo-Tantoco, Rustan’s marketing and communications manager. “So it’s about having sweet memories, being sweet to each other, sweet gifting, festive feels it’s warmer. And that’s what we’re trying to do here.”
