Le Pliage Original Shoulder Bag S Saffron (P8,600) from Longchamp
If she's deep in the rabbit hole that is TikTok, then she's probably had this bag on her cart for a while now. Why not surprise her this Christmas by gifting her the Le Pliage in her fave color? The classic bag is a classic for a reason: in itself, it is pretty straightforward about being a bag but it comes in a water-resistant material that makes it a crowd-fave for those that commute or have an outdoorsy lifestyle.

Open Me When Letters (Set of 3) (P930) from Pluma't Pahina
There's nothing more romantic than reading a handwritten letter. Sure, texts and Telegram chats can be romantic too but there's something about holding a piece of paper that contains your heart and soul that'll make your S.O. giggle in happiness and kiss you senseless. Be sure to plan ahead of time if this is one of the presents you'd want to give her since customized gifts take longer during the holiday season.
