Bucky's Buckies (P300/box)

Fudgy brownies are amazing, but we'd gladly munch on these "buckies" all day. They're a hybrid of sorts (a brownie, fudge, and flourless cake)-chewy, chocolatey, and just plain delicious, especially with a dollop of vanilla ice cream on top.

Banig Throw Pillow (P599.75)

Cotton is so mainstream. Put some quirky character in any living room with one of these banig beauties.
