Everyone’s favorite source of healthy treats once again rolls out its Christmas gift packs carefully handpicked to please even the most conscientious health buff—from goods perfect for organic feasts to eco-friendly beauty products.
Healthy Options welcomes the holiday cheers with the theme, “Joy to the World,” a salute to the many ways Christmas is celebrated around the world.
“It’s about the togetherness and sharing with people we love during the season. And the gifts that we give, the time that we spend with our loved ones, and the joy we bring to them,” said head of marketing Pam So-Suarez.
This year’s Christmas hampers are locally crafted wicker baskets, packed with goodies called Christmas Feast (P7,495).
In the package is one of Healthy Options’ all-time favorites, the nonalcoholic Sparkling Grape Juice, as well as Pure Harvest Organic Activated Almond Milk, Traditional Medicinals Cup of Calm Tea and delicious, healthy snacks, like the popular Popcorners and other pantry favorites.
Gift boxes include Gluten-Free (P3,995), which is packed with chips, chocolates, crackers, granola, quinoa, spaghetti, pasta sauce, salsa, brownie mix and select beverages.
Organic favorites are found in the Organic box (P3,295), while low-sodium and low-sugar snacks—from chips and pistachios to granola—are contained in the Heart Smart box (P2,995).
Nutrient-packed selections are all in the Merrymaker’s box (P2,995).
Customers who want a stress-free Christmas shopping experience can choose from the packages. The trick is to know the recipient’s personality type.
But should customers feel the need to add a personal touch to the boxes, they can choose from a selection of sparkling juices, premium organic wines, pasta sauces, guilt-free snacks, natural cosmetics and personal skincare products, for a minimum of P500.
If choosing is important to the receiver, there are Healthy Options gift cards, available in P500 and P1,000 denominations.
Suarez said they have been pushing natural beauty products in recent years.
“We’ve always made it a point to stay ahead of the game since 1995. If there’s a new craze, we’re always the first one to carry it,” Suarez said.
Aztec Healing Clay Mask, the beauty craze that drew long queues outside the stores ahead of opening time, had been on their shelves for quite some time, but became a huge hit only last year, said Suarez.
Christmas packs this year include Natural Beauty gift sets, such as Derma-E Travel Kit (P595) and Derma-E Radiant Set (P595).
Beauty addicts will love the Energizing set (P849) with hand repair cream, bar soap, lip conditioner; and Relaxing set (P1,250), with lavender hand and body lotion, lavender roll-on and lavender bar soap.
Aderum wines from Spain (P795) are also available, from Cauvignon Blanc to Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon to Syrah, as well as staple holiday nonalcoholic hits like Sparkling Grape Juices that come in Wildberry, Passion Fruit, Acai, Gold Apple, Red Grape and Rosé.
Packs are available for in-store shopping and online shopping.
Healthy Options will celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2020.
