Shopping during the busiest time of the year is stress that I want to avoid. Going around the mall and looking for the best gifts is not a good thing to tell you the truth. We love to give gifts but going around looking for it in so many places can ruin our time and therefore it was only appropriate that we look for venues and place to get all what we want in one stop.
Circuit Makati Bazaar was held last November 18-20 and it had save me a lot of thing especially my time.
If you think Christmas bazaars are all the same, then you’re definitely in for a merry surprise as Circuit Makati—the go-to event destination for everyone— holds the biggest and hippest outdoor bazaar last November 18-20, 2016.
Inspired by Christmas markets from around the globe, the Circuit Makati Christmas Bazaar features six Christmas villages bursting with over 500 merchants offering the best holiday finds–gift items, clothes, accessories, knick knacks, electronics, toys, and food.
As if this were not enough, Ayala Land has upped the ante by lining up exciting fun-filled activities and great entertainment for every member of the family.
I literally stuff my shopping bags with great surprises from each of these six Christmas villages.
If gliterrerati is your thing, there’s Star Avenue, where you will encounter celebrities such as Shaina Magdayao, Miriam Quiambao, Gretchen Fullido, Christine Babao, LJ Moreno Alapag, Nikki Valdez and Maria Isabel Lopez with her daughter, Mara Lopez who will be giving everyone a chance to own their products and pre-loved items.
