A helpful gift guide for the picky teens in your life

The same thing seems to happen every year: You’d ask your teenage pamangkin what they want for Christmas and they’d say the classic line, “Anything will do!” But when you give them just that, they’d be down in the dumps because it’s not what they wanted. I think we can all agree that nothing’s harder than figuring out what teens will genuinely like. 

But we’ve got you covered this year. With a little strategy and some help from actual teens we know, we’ve put together this gift guide that can make gift shopping easier for you. (And everything on this list is on sale this holiday season at SM Supermalls!)


Upcycled items from Artwork


Most teens these days are socially aware and environmentally responsible, so they would totally appreciate gifts that aren’t too harmful to the planet. Good thing Artwork has upcycled items on sale this holiday season—from scrunchies and bucket hats to laptop sleeves!

Head over to your nearest SM branch and score up to 50% off on selected items. Be quick though as this promo is only available while supplies last.

iPhone 13 from Power Mac Center


The iPhone 13 combines all the cool smartphone features every teenager would want: front and rear-facing cameras with advanced sensors for taking pro-like photos and videos, an A15 bionic chip for lag-free gaming and multitasking, and a relatively longer battery life than the rest of the iPhone series.

Purchase one now at Power Mac Center for as low as P52,490. You may also use your China Bank credit card to avail of a 0% installment plan for up to 24 months!

Samsung Galaxy devices from Mobile Extras Technologies



Now if they’re not too fond of iPhones, don’t fret. Mobile Extras Technologies offers a deal we bet every Android stan won’t be able to resist: Visit in-store and cop a participating Samsung Galaxy device to enjoy a buy now, pay next year payment plan!

Yup, you can take home the phone right away and pay the first monthly installment next year at 0% interest for up to 24 months.

Self-care session at Flawless



Online classes are (and we can’t stress this enough) sucking the energy out of teenagers. They’re constantly at their wit’s end, so why not book them an appointment at Flawless Face and Body Clinic for an ultimate self-care day?

Avail of the acnelan treatment (for clearing acne likely caused by stress), the vita detox with vitamin C (for eliminating body toxins), and the ultherapy (for contouring and tightening facial skin)—all at 20% off until November 30, 2021.
