Still have some gifts left to pick up?

We only have a few days until Christmas, and with the holiday rush during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s better to stay home rather than shop at malls. The situation in most of the latter is crazy—from crowded shopping spaces to long queues at checkout counters. And while there are a lot of great items online, deliveries may take some time. 

If you’re still looking for last-minute gifts that are sure to please your loved ones, you might want to check out these subscriptions that can bring them delight this Yuletide season—and beyond. 

Fitness subscription 

With a new year coming up, it’s the perfect time to surprise someone with a subscription that can keep their health in check and help them achieve their fitness goals. REBEL has great offers for their newest personal training program, REBEL Coach. For a monthly fee of P2,999, you can get access to the country’s best personal trainers and will be matched with a coach based on your goals and needs.

Ice cream subscription 

Adventurous ice cream lovers will absolutely enjoy an ice cream subscription from Papa Diddi’s. As part of the well-loved brand’s Pint Club, they will receive two handcrafted pints of its new offerings each month. What makes it even more exciting is that they won’t get to choose their own flavor—it will be a monthly surprise that could tickle their tastebuds. It’s available for P750/month for three months, P700/month for six months, and P650/month for 12 months.

Website subscription

It’s always good to stay updated on the latest happenings not only in the country but the whole world. Giving your loved one a subscription to websites like Philstar Media Group’s outlets is probably one of the most practical gifts you could give. Apart from it being a good source of knowledge, it can also give them a reason to develop a reading habit for the new year. 

Streaming app subscription

Family movie nights are one of the most time-honored Christmas traditions. And with affordable streaming subscriptions ready, bonding nights are made better. PLDT Home is offering subscribers unlimited access to thousands of HBO Go content at a discounted rate of P149/month.

But that's not all, this holiday season, they're offering a P379/4 months deal and an HBO Go monthly rate at only P94/month, which you can conveniently charge to your PLDT Home bill.
