Lola’s 2017 Holiday Kitchen Wish List

2017 Holiday Kitchen Wish List

I have never really made a wish list before so this one is going to be the first on this blog. I wrote this piece for a certain project which never materialized because of an unfortunate event. But then, I realized, I already made the list so, what the heck, let’s publish it anyway.

Although this is a list of kitchen items that I personally want to receive (or dream of buying), feel free to use it as a guide or inspiration when you plan to shop for holiday gifts for people whose passion is cooking. Some are more expensive than the others. Some can be bought locally while some may require international shipping. Shipping costs may be free or not. Check the website for further details.

Happy holiday shopping! 🙂

So, if you can, shop at your local farmers’ market or palengke instead of large supermarkets, and buy local produce instead of the imported ones.

I still enjoy going to the market to buy goods, but we can’t deny the convenience that online shopping has brought into our lives. It saves us time, effort, and money!

And speaking of saving money, have you heard of Do you remember those vouchers and coupons and other perks that we get to enjoy when we do our shopping at the supermarket or at the mall? Shopback works in a similar way, but better! It gives you back a portion of your money when you shop using its service. This means that consumers, like you and me, get more value for their money.
