Shop For Your Christmas List Using Honestbee

Sunday, November 18, 2018 Philippines

I love Honestbee and I think Honestbee loves me too! 


Ever since Honestbee was launched in the Philippines, I am an active user of the Application because I find it more reliable than Food Panda. I usually order food from Banapple and S & R. To my delight, they expanded to grocery items! It is so convenient for me specially since I have a shifting type of schedule at work. 

This Holiday season, it is more convenient to use Honestbee because I can leave all my last minute Christmas worries behind, avoid going to busy area like malls and groceries just to buy my Christmas list. More importantly, avoid the heavy traffic which is one of the major problems in the Philippines specially in the time of December. I can attend and enjoy all the Christmas gatherings and reunions instead of wasting my time in never ending lines and traffic. 

Since it is the season to forgive and gift-giving, why not celebrate it by sharing some of your favorite holiday products?  Beat the holiday rush with Honestbee's carefully curated food and gift items delivered straight to your doorstep. Just open you Honestbbe APP, click the Christmas Offerings Category and browse for over a hundred merchants you could shop from. 

Christmas is not Christmas without sweets and its aromatic fragrance filling up your home. Transform your dining area with desserts from the country's best as Honestbee partners with the Philippine Daily Inquirer's Best Desserts!

Nic's Gourmet is a restaurant (located at UP Town Center and Park Terraces) that offers delicious food and pastries that are great for gifts. I was able to try out their Oatmeal cookies (THE BEST THAT OATMEAL COOKIES SO FAR FOR ME!), Double Fudge Bars, and Oatmeal Fudge Bar. Nic's also offers Dips perfect for breads and crackers (specially when you are on a diet), it tastes so good that I cannot help buying a jar during the event. I bought the Seven Herb Cheese. This is a great gift to be given to your aunts, mother or diet conscious friends and relatives. Just wrap the jar with a ribbon and you are good to go! Follow them at @nicsph in Instagram.

Ann Puno's Kitchen offers home baked goods and dishes that can be picked up in Alabang, Makati and QC or just simply order it at Honestbee.
