Balikbayan Pasalubong Gift Ideas from The Container Store

Gifting my friends and family can be a dubious challenge especially if they are picky or if you only have a set budget that you need to work on.  Then there’s the issue of the weight and size a gift can fit in your luggage or balikbayan box that you send home.

While trying to be creative on what to send back to the Philippines via the Balikbayan box my friend took me to The Container Store in Fashion valley, San Diego. There I found a ton of great gifting ideas that are unique, thoughtful, practical and wont hurt your budget.

In addition I created a Video Blog of my finds and you can view it here

Compartment organizers

Thes clear compartment organizers are a great give for people that are well organized. Perfect to store charging cables and small jewelry.
If you or your friends are into crafting like beads, this is a way to neatly store supplies.

Flip Out Bins
Bigger pull down organizers are great for the workshop to store bolts or nail, or use them in the kitchen to keep away spices or sachet mixes.

Mason Jars

There is a huge demand and trend for Mason jars. Can be used as a mug, some use them for baking. A pen holder, coin drop, the uses are endless…or use them for their original purpose, creating yummy jams 🙂
