Send Lolo and Lola Lots of Love With These 7 Grandparents’ Day Gifts


For many grandparents, showering their precious grandchildren with love and care is a given. They are always present during special occasions like birthdays and Christmas, where they often bring you some of the most incredible gifts ever. But on their special day, it’s your grandparents’ turn to receive heartwarming gifts from you instead.

Here in the Philippines, the second Sunday of September is always dedicated to Grandparents’ Day. Falling on September 10 this year, this occasion is observed to honor our lolos and lolas, as well as make them feel extra loved and special. 

If you’re looking for the perfect gift to surprise your gramps and grannie with, here’s a list of our simple but sweet suggestions—that even grandparents who already have *everything* will surely appreciate!

Nostalgic merienda for sharing

Remember when your grandparents would buy delicious treats from Goldilocks for your merienda or pasalubong? Relive those days by inviting them over for an afternoon snack break and preparing these old-time favorite treats for sharing!

You can get your lolo and lola’s favorite flavors among Goldilocks’ Cake Slices, which include Chiffon, Mocha Marble, Double Dutch, Butter, Chocolate, and Marble Cake. You can also opt for the bakeshop’s best-selling Fluffy Mamon, known for its rich and buttery taste with a fluffy, melt-in-your-mouth texture, or Cheesy Ensaymada, a sweet treat with generous amounts of creamed butter, sugar, and grated cheddar cheese for its toppings.

You can buy eight Cake Slices, Fluffy Mamon, or Cheesy Ensaymada and get one of these merienda treats for free at Goldilocks in SM City Dasmariñas until September 24.

The classic pancit food feast

Your grandparents would surely agree: It’s not a Filipino fiesta without the classic pancit for special occasions. Let the tradition live on by ordering a flavorful platter of Pancit Palabok at Mang Inasal, which is available in a Fiesta Size that delivers hefty servings for up to 10 people. This palate-pleasing Palabok is drenched in a thick, rich sauce that produces its signature orange color and seasoned with chopped spring onions, hard-boiled egg slices, chicharon bits, meaty pork, and tinapa. 

Order a Palabok Fiesta Size for only P549 for dine-in, takeout, or delivery at Mang Inasal in SM City Valenzuela until September 30.

A fried chicken meal for the fam

Sundays are also considered Family Day, so you can consider combining your Grandparents’ Day celebration with a family get-together for lunch or dinner. After all, your grandparents would surely appreciate seeing all their loved ones gathered at one table on their special day. 

To satisfy everyone’s appetite and cravings, order bundle meals perfect for the whole family—like the Fambox Fried Chicken With Spaghetti For 4 - Litro Iced Tea from Wendy’s. This bundle meal has eight pieces of Fried Chicken, four Rice, two Litro Iced Teas, and one Spaghetti Platter for sharing.
