Whenever Filipinos travel, among the things that is part of their itinerary is buying pasalubong or souvenirs for family and friends back home.
Just in time for the Yuletide season, Duty Free Philippines Corporation opened the doors of Duty Free Luxe to help balikbayans as well as foreign tourists in buying their gifts and pasalubong.
Luxe is DFP’s newest downtown store that offers some of the world’s high-end and finest brands of fragrances, fashion, cosmetics, wines, and, of course, chocolates.
Here are four reasons Duty Free Luxe is the next best pasalubong center.
It helps Filipino travelers have a hassle-free trip.
Among the reasons Duty Free established its downtown store is that it wants the Filipino travelers, especially OFWs, to have a hassle-free trip and not to spend more in excess baggage because of their pasalubong.
Filipinos tend to buy many souvenirs for each member of their family and for their friends, resulting in excess baggage. But with Duty Free Luxe, balikbayans can buy the same products available abroad and even bring their families to the store.
It features high-end and international products.
Luxe offers the world’s finest retail brands such as Kate Spade, Michael Kors, Longchamp, Victoria’s Secret, Hogan, and Hugo Boss. Shoppers can also grab Gucci, Chanel, Tom Ford, Armani, YSL, and La Mer products exclusive only at Luxe.
Beauty enthusiasts can also look forward to MAC Cosmetics, Bobbi Brown, Sulwhasoo, and Shiseido.
It promotes local products.
What makes Luxe an outstanding pasalubong center is that it does not only feature international brands but also promotes locally made products to support our Filipino entrepreneurs.
Among its stores is Department of Trade and Industry’s Go Lokal shop that showcases the country’s exceptional products and other Filipino favorite souvenirs and delicacies.
It contributes to the Tourism department.
Among the good benefits in buying at Luxe is that 10 percent of the amount of product bought will go to the Tourism Promotions Board of the Department of Tourism.
TPB is the agency responsible for promoting the Philippines as “domestically and internationally world-class tourism and MICE destination.”
Luxe is located at Pacific Drive, Mall of Asia Complex, near airport and hotels and casinos. It is open daily from 11:00 a.m to 9:00 p.m.
