Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — With Christmas just around the corner, the holiday rush in the country is unmistakable.

From extravagant mall decor to flamboyant street light installations, Filipinos, as always, have gone all out, many weeks before Christmas.

Some have already booked plane tickets for out-of-town (or even out-of-the-country) trips with family or friends, while some prefer a simple, intimate celebration with loved ones.

Getting preoccupied with parties, reunions, and vacation trips can make the task of Christmas shopping a long and arduous one.

With that, we listed a few affordable yet noteworthy ideas to help you find the perfect holiday gift for your loved ones-minus all the hassle.

Spa and salon trips

A good old massage treat to cap off the year is never a bad idea. Treat your family members with a day trip to the spa or salon for the perfect relaxation and bonding time.

Competitive board or card games


Running out of ideas for your get-together's this Christmas? Why not invest in a competitive board game or card game?

The family-friendly activity caters to all ages and can be played from dusk until dawn. Who says family reunions are a bore?

Mason jar set


Dinnerware can be expensive at times, but the mason jar is a prime example that you don't have to sacrifice quality for a cheap price.

A mason jar set comes in various colors as well as quirky designs. The best part is that owning one will only cost you less than P500.
