Stocking Stuffer #3: Sharpie Mini
I've always been a sucker for school supplies. Back in grade school and high school, a trip to National Bookstore on a school day was a treat! When I went to UP Diliman for college, I was a Miranda Bookstore regular, (when I didn't have time to go to National Katipunan, heehee) Without even meaning to buy anything, I'd find myself with back-up supplies of Pilot G-tec pens and all sorts of notepads, folders, pretty paper or whatever the teeny tiny bookstore had to offer. When I went to graduate school in AIM, it was back to National Bookstore, which was just across the street in Greenbelt. My friends and I would scour the aisles for cute stuff - Post-it notepads, 3M scotch tape in clear pastel tape dispensers, colorful staplers, filing materials and other supplies. Every single week.
I guess buying school/office supplies is a habit not a lot of people grow out of. I know lots of folks my age who can't resist a cute notebook, or a pretty pen up to now. So I know that no matter what, anything related to school or even office supplies is a welcome treat! That's why I think these Sharpie Minis are a great stocking stuffer! They're cute, colorful and practical! Maybe not something a person would think of buying for one's self, but nevertheless great to receive!
Buy a 12-color Sharpie Mini set (black, red, blue, green, lime, orange, aqua, berry, purple, burgundy, plum and navy) plus some colorful lanyards/dog tag ball chains from Divisoria or eBay, and for less than Php100 each, you've got handy dandy giveaways for 12 people right away!
