Gift Ideas That Keep on Giving

Written by Frankie and Friends General Store - January 21, 2023

Truth be told, there's something about seeing those you love excitedly unwrapped their gifts you thoughtfully chose and light up in thankfulness! Why not make it even more meaningful by giving a gift that continues to keep on giving and sparks just as much excitement when they look back on weeks, months, and even years later. Go the extra mile and intentionally choose pieces with staying power beyond the labels and trends! 

Whether you need a gift for anniversaries, perhaps a friend’s birthday, or you might simply want to brighten someone’s day. These homegrown pieces are sure to make one celebration the most memorable yet! With every purchase, you are supporting passion projects and community-centered creations (make your gift-receiver very hhaappyy too! ). Adding them to my cart as we speak! 

Perfect for your special someone who likes a small statement piece that makes a big impact! Each handcrafted necklaces carries a message of hope, designed by powerful women with real life stories of redemption. 

And why not give your Mom the gift of relaxation with these Lourdes Pouf ? All crocheted pillows are handcrafted by women who are stay-at-home moms from Marikina and Antipolo, providing them with an additional source of income while still being able to take care of their families.

What's not to love about this versatile piece? This can be used as a cover up blanket, table cloth, wall decor! Each Beach Sarong is hand dyed with natural dyes using Shibori techniques, and adorned with sacred hand embroidery by the Itneg Tribe. You are not only giving a gift that is made out of passion, but also local and sustainable materials that help a marginalized community.

They say a good pair of shoes will take you to good places, I say that is very true. Make a difference by giving pieces that matter like handwoven mules. It's socially responsible and proudly weaved by our indigineous communities from Abra to Negros. Just the right hint of sustainable fashion that blends modernity with tradition!

Let your eco-conscious friends know they're admirable with this multipurpose towel ! Made from recycled waste, you're not only doing a good deed for your mind, body, and soul, but for the environment as well! Your yogi friends will be pleased to know that it has a non slip grip to help step up their balance game (they'll look cute too, I promise!).

Are there other gifts that should be on this list that keep on giving? What do you plan to give your loved ones? Email me at ! I’d like to hear them!
