Local treasures that give back

Looking for a gift that keeps on giving? Globe Business makes it easier to look for local food, fashion, wellness, and household items that you can give to your loved ones or yourself this holiday season. 

Gift Local trains the spotlight on micro, small, and medium local social enterprises that support the livelihood of farmers, local designers, indigenous communities, and underprivileged individuals. 

“This year’s campaign aims to bring out the goodness behind each purchase by giving Filipinos the opportunity to choose holiday gifts that give twice the joy – to the recipient and to the local business and community that they benefit,” said KD Dizon, head of MSME Group at Globe Business.
