Countdown to Christmas: An Early Holiday Shopper’s Gift Guide


Can you already hear sleigh bells ringing? How about kids singing Christmas carols? Can you already feel the holiday breeze and festive atmosphere? By September 16, there are only 100 days left before Christmas—which makes it a great time to start your holiday shopping already. 

Buying gifts ahead will help you avoid long lines and crowded spaces during the Christmas shopping rush. It also gives you enough time to find good deals—just like the ones available this September during the SM Malls Online app’s Super Payday Sale. By using the voucher code SUPERPAYDAY, you can also get P150 off on any minimum purchase worth P400 on the SM Malls Online app. Take note that this discount is valid for one-time use and on orders from non-food brands for delivery only.

If you’re ready to start your early Christmas shopping now, here are gift ideas for 6 types of people you might know. 

For kids who love cool toys

Toys will always be part of kids’ Christmas wishlists, but getting the perfect one for the kids in your life can be a little tricky because there are so many options available. If you don’t know which one to buy, just check what shows they watch or popular media characters they love. Chances are, they’d want toys related to their favorite movies or animated series, just like this character action figure from the cartoon Metalions. 

Although it can be a standalone toy, the Mini Ursa can also be combined with other Metalions action figures to create a large transformer from the show called Infinity. It has movable arms, legs, and torso that make playtime more enjoyable, and you don’t have to worry because it is made of impact-resistant plastic.

From an original price of P899.75, you can get the Metalions Mini Ursa Action Figure Toy For Boys at 20% off for only P719.80. This promo is available until September 30 at Toy Kingdom in all malls via the SM Malls Online app.
