What To Spend Your Aguinaldo Money On This 2018 | Maya.ph

Many families in the Philippines celebrate the holiday season together in warm and festive gatherings. Young ones excitedly anticipate receiving presents from their relatives, and aguinaldo money particularly from their godparents.

Here’s a list of useful gifts your children can buy online, making fun and responsible use of their Christmas cash.


School Supplies

Show off your sense of stationery style

Students spend hours each day scribbling down class notes (or doodling) in their notebooks, and it’s important that they choose ones that are easy on the eyes and comfortable to write in.

For example, Jacinto & Lirio products are all produced locally, designed with a native tropical flourish, while international brand Kraft makes straightforward and sturdy notebooks ideal for minimalists.

 Get a file organizer especially for students who prefer taking notes on sheets of paper. Amazon has a great portable option here: the AmazonBasics Expanding File case, letter size, in an understated black.

It’s small enough to fit into large backpacks, and holds over 900 pages at maximum throughout its 13 compartments.
