Kris Kringle ideas from Tiendesitas

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines -Ortigas & Co.’s well-loved shopping and family entertainment destination Tiendesitas reopened its first new building last November, just in time for the frenzied holiday gift hunt. From an assortment of collectibles, quirky items, furniture, apparel, to wellness and cosmetic products, new stores have added zest to an already flavorful mix of old-timers that have made Tiendesitas a favored retail stop.

Those who have yet to find something for a long list of friends, family members and godchildren will find suitable gifts at Tiendesitas.

1. Props tools and cosmetics. Unlike other retailers that let you buy items separately, the Props concept gives you the option to put together and customize a palette. Since setting up the store a month ago, the 22-year-old entrepreneur behind this concept has gained the patronage of discerning beauty mavens, makeup pros, and celebrities. For those who have yet to learn how to properly use cosmetics, makeup classes are conducted every now and then by the storeowner herself. 

2. Blusa. A classic take on casual women’s apparel. Blusa offers a wide variety of prints, designs, and cuts to choose from, for women who juggle their time between office, kids, and other day-to-day engagements.

3. The Stockroom. A crowd favourite, The Stockroom has an item for every nook and cranny of your home. The Stockroom showcases a variety of items from wooden clocks, furniture, wall stickers, kitchenware, frames, to wine racks — all quirk, functional, and made for the design junkie, at prices that are nothing less than reasonable.

4. H&B. Some adults who drop by H&B often ask jokingly if they have some of the tees and leather jackets in their size. Unfortunately, all pieces here are for kids, but with designs that appeal even to a more mature audience.

5. GiGA. At first, GiGA might sound like your average tech store that sells games, gadgets, and items that would make people geek-out. Well, it’s not. GiGA is actually a wellness store that sells products, from bath bars and balms to massage oils, fragrances, and even dog shampoo! And these are all natural. The entrepreneurs behind GiGA used virgin coconut oil (VCO) in their formulation, back when VCO wasn’t as popular.
