MANILA, Philippines - More than just a material blessing, a gift says a lot about the giver and his or her relationship to the receiver. Finding a gift for someone who matters is an art to master; and takes time, effort, and a lot of thought.

A source of premium gift options, Rustan’s Supermarket invites Filipinos to make meaningful gift-giving a tradition with this year’s line-up of holiday packages.

Delicious Feasts for Noche Buena

The traditional Christmas Eve meal is a sacred part of every Filipino family’s holiday celebration, and Rustan’s Supermarket offers delectable food-to-go options to make whipping up that Noche Buena line-up even easier. For a truly iconic meal, go for the sumptuous Jamon Iberico de Bellota (back ham bone-in) and throw in the Limited Edition Maestro Cortador Kit to make slicing and carving a breeze. Enjoy a little bit of everything with the antipasti/deli platter filled with gruyere, mozzarella balls, salami Milano, prosciutto, artichoke hearts, grilled vegetables, and more; or the cheese platter with dried fruits, nuts and grapes.

There’s also Gourmet-to-Go’s signature baguette tray, salmon gravlax with condiments, delicious chicken galantina, the flavorful tapas tray, spinach dip in hollowed bread, and a colorful sushi platter.

Fresh Baskets for the Season of Giving

The season’s most-loved fruits paired with tasty holiday snacks make for great gifts for anyone and everyone. Check out Rustan’s Supermarket’s yuletide fruit & snack basket, a wonderful assortment of fresh fruits, imported cheese and chocolate, crackers, cookies, and sparkling wine. Or, for health-conscious families and friends, opt for the holiday fruit tower, seasonal fruit box, or a wreath of fresh fruits.
