Gift boxes have always been a good option for people who have a hard time looking for the perfect gift. They’re ideal for those who can’t spend a lot of time assembling stuff and goodies that friends and family will enjoy on  special occasions or just because. 

There are a variety of curated gift boxes out there, but why not take things to the next level and get your friends something that will help them start 2021 on the right foot?

A new year is a good time to start embracing relaxation and wellness, after all. The Matana Collective has wellness-themed gift boxes, which contain  12-in-1 herbal tea with handcrafted soap and a roller blend of essential oils from Tinlo

The relaxation box, meanwhile, has a hand-poured scented soy candle paired with handcrafted soap and a roller blend of essential oils.

While we’re on the topic of relaxation, get your friends and family a Name on Print gift box that makes their space feel calmer too. They’ve got a bed- and bath-themed gift box, packed with a gold tray, a lavender bed and linen spray, as well as shampoo and conditioner bars from Marta’s Handmade Soaps.

Giving good food as a gift is great, but what if you could encourage your friends to make their own good food? Mad About Herbs’ gift boxes have condiments like bagoong and chili garlic made with herbs and spices grown in Candelaria, Quezon. 

These are also customizable—so feel free to add gourmet tuyo or chili lime and basil salt.


Maison Cheese

If you’ve got friends who are more interested in drinks, there are gift boxes for them, too. You can always get them wine and cheese boxes from Maison Cheese—which come with a bottle of wine and brie and manchego cheeses. 

These boxes come in different sizes, but we recommend the deluxe box, which has cold cuts, crackers, chocolate, Pepero sticks and honey too.

For friends who want to try growing something new in 2021, keep an eye out for Qubo’s gift boxes. The gift boxes come with everything you need for a garden: organic fertilizer, potting mix, tools and a cocopot. They also come with seeds that grow herbs like arugula and thyme—among many other plants.
