Shiseido Future Solutions LX Total Regenerating Cream

On top of rounding up the year and running errands before the Christmas break, shopping for gifts can be a stressful chore. We’re all crammers and, sometimes, what we want is a place where we can buy everything—before we even know they have the perfect gifts.

The SM Store in SM Makati may solve your gift-giving problems.


At the store’s SM Woman alone, you can get a floral-printed jumpsuit, perfect for transitioning to festive summer.

For something bold, there’s a crimson-lace fedora hat at SM Accessories, and a pair of nude peep-toe boots from Parisian.


Stylish men will like the cool tones of the apparel at SM Menswear—a classic striped polo on dress-down days, or a textured blazer for meetings.

For the young guys, there’s a deep-green honeycomb fabric shirt that is breathable and comfy.

And for the spiffy man, there’s a pair of suede loafers from Salvatore Mann.

Something for everyone

For moms, there’s luxurious skincare at SM Beauty. The Shiseido Future Solutions LX Total Regenerating Cream is a high-performance, ultra-rich moisturizer that helps the skin restore itself at night.

Women siblings might love something youthful and flashy like the Guerlain Meteorites Christmas Edition, an innovative pearl highlighter that gives skin an iridescent glow.

For the little sis, the Clio Kill Cover Conceal Cushion with Free Fill will introduce her to the wonders of makeup.


For dads looking for new fragrances, the Issey Miyake L’Eau Majeure D’Issey contains a woody scent cut through by a salty sea accord.

For daughters or nieces, the cold shoulder wrap dress from Little Miss is a stylish statement that is age-appropriate with its details. Follow it up with a toy like the Barbie 3-Storey Townhouse.

For sons or nephews, there’s a gray pique shirt from Justees, and a pair of blue combat boots from Tough Kids.

Dress up the kids with on-trend pieces from The SM Store.

The boys can also try on a new ride called the Crazy Cart XL.

But don’t stop shopping till you’ve bought a gift for yourself, like some knickknacks for your room. The Gold Cylinder with Led Light from King King is a nice way to up your crib’s character.

If you want to take it to the next level, equip your nest— particularly your kitchen—with quality kitchenware such as the Delonghi Electric Kettle that comes in a beautiful bronze matte finish.
