As each day inches us closer to the holidays, Lifestyle.INQ and SM Supermalls have partnered up for a series all about gift-giving.
When #ItsChristmasAtSM, you can count on The SM Store to provide you with some luxury. What does luxury mean? It’s not only about the price tag. Luxury is about the experience. Certain items represent an activity that only calls for special celebrations, travels, and nights out. Think about that coveted suitcase that carries promises of vacations and beautiful sights. Or maybe that pair of shoes which we can dance in until midnight.
Luxury can also be about elevating every day with small yet significant items that bring us ease and comfort. A glass of freshly-made fruit shake can turn dull mornings into energized rituals. Sunglasses that add a statement to any outfit can quickly perk you up for a round of errands. The right beauty items can automatically bring a sense of wonder into your look or even make your nights feel opulent.
In this Christmas gift list, we’ve rounded up luxury items that don’t just add splendor beneath the Christmas tree. These also bring good vibes all year round.
