The holidays are upon us again, and that means it’s once again time for us to start thinking of not just what we’ll be serving on our Noche Buena tables, but also the gifts we’ll be putting under the Christmas tree. And if you’re on a budget, you might think that finding the perfect gift for your people is simply impossible. That’s just not true, though, since if you know where to look, there’s always going to be something online that’s not only affordable but is also something that they will like and enjoy using!

Below, we’re listing down 8 of the many gift ideas under P500 that you can give to your friends and loved ones this Christmas. Check them out below:
