If you’ve been meaning to get your own, we found one that won’t break your budget: B. Coffee Co’s Freshman Capsule Coffee Machine is only P2,999!

Mi Vacuum Cleaner Mini (P1,599) from Xiaomi
Say goodbye to bulky, hard-to-use vacuum cleaners with his wireless, rechargeable vacuum from Xiaomi. It’ll make tidying up much easier and quicker thanks to the compact, handheld size, lightweight build (it weighs about half a kilogram), and powerful suction. The vacuum comes with a two-in-one nozzle that can be made long or short, depending on the area you're cleaning. The longer attachment allows you to reach tight crevices or small spaces you wouldn't normally be able to squeeze your arm into while the shorter attachment would be handy for cleaning surfaces like your desk, dinner table, or kitchen counter.

Smart Touch Heating Coaster (P1,254) from Urallife
The weather in Manila has been pretty chilly as of late with PAGASA recording the coldest temperatures in the Metro so far thanks to amihan. While the breezy weather is a blessing for most, one small downside is that your morning coffee has probably been getting cold a lot quicker than usual—and who wants to drink lukewarm coffee? These heating coasters from Urallife may just save you from that small inconvenience. These USB-powered coasters come with three adjustable temperatures (low, medium, high) and a touch sensor so you can heat up your drink in seconds. Its smart heating system maintains temperature, so if you place a hot cup of coffee on it in the morning, it will still be warm a few hours later.
Merino Wool Blankets (starts at P3,500) from Chunky Cuddles
In case the chilly weather has you feeling extra sleepy throughout the day, we found something that will make your nightly slumber, midday nap, and stay-in-bed mornings even cozier: Local brand Chunky Cuddles makes wool blankets that will make you want to snooze all day! These snuggly blankets are hand-knitted from thick merino wool, which is known to be thinner and softer than regular wool, making it easier to wear on the skin. Despite the blanket’s thick design, the fiber of the wool can actually help regulate body temperature, so you’ll always feel comfy and fresh when you wake up in the morning. Plus, the chunky, knitted texture gives these blankets a rustic, homey look to them and you can even use them as color accent pieces or throws on your couch and armchairs.
Galaxy Buds Pro (P9,990) from Samsung
In case you missed it, Samsung just released their latest flagship smartphone series, the S21, along with their new Galaxy Buds Pro, which sport a new, less protrusive look compared to their previous wireless earbuds for a fit and feel more natural to the ear. The device's improved sound quality promises detailed audio with a balanced treble and full bass, giving the user a cinematic, 360-degree audio experience that makes sound feel as though it is coming from different angles.
It also has adjustable Active Noise Cancellation that can block up to 99% of outside noise and automatically turns off when you start speaking. As you would expect, the Galaxy Buds Pro seamlessly connects to your other Samsung Galaxy devices—you can easily switch connections between your phone, tablet, and other gadgets. Plus, with up to 18 hours of playtime on a single full charge, you'll be using the listening device all day. If you're in a rush, you can get up to an hour of use from just five minutes of charging.
