Celebrity gift suggestions

There are only 33 sleeps before Christmas and for gift suggestions, we look to the stars to see what best to put under the tree.

The gift of style

The beauteous Iza Calzado is not only known for her acting chops but also her inimitable style. For the yuletide season, the actress digs the playful and trendy pieces of Bayo’s 2016 Holiday Collection. This year’s collection, Style Harvest: A Playful Holiday, takes inspiration from classic toys such as yoyos, pick-up sticks, building blocks, and puzzles and showcases pieces with flattering silhouettes, cuts, and prints.

Iza looks bright and cheerful in Bayo’s timeless tops, pants, skirts and dresses that are in cheerful Christmas colors – mainly blues, reds, yellows and greens.

Anna Lagon, Bayo’s creative director, said the team was inspired to create a collection that would bring out fun memories of childhood and that its holiday line of Style Harvest is memoir to every adult and young adults’ Christmas.

“We literally had a playful time while working on the various pieces along with the unique artworks, inspired by the iconic toys we have chosen; it did bring out the child in us. After all, this season, is the happiest time of the year not only for the young, but also for the young at heart,” Lagon said. 

 “Design sensibilities remain classic and elegant, which are all consistent with what Bayo is all about,” she added.

Bayo is partnering with KIDS 4 Others (Kids in Dedicated Service 4 Others). Part of the proceeds from this collection will go to the Concordia Children’s Services and Gentle Hands, Inc.

The gift of fragrance

For the always cool and trendy Enrique Gil, there is nothing like smelling good for the festive season.

The actor makes sure to turn heads as he is introduced by direct-selling company Avon as their brand ambassador for their new Intense fragrance line.

Jean Reyes, Avon marketing director, believes that Enrique is the perfect poster boy for Avon Intense, which comes in three variants: Thrill, Heartbeat, and Spark. 

“Enrique is magnetic, very masculine, and confident. He has this irresistible and electrifying charisma that perfectly represents Intense, our new fragrance collection that will truly turn up the heat to intense new levels. As Avon celebrates its 130th anniversary, we continue to be the number one fragrance brand in the country and we are so happy and proud to welcome Enrique Gil for Intense,” she said.

Enrique is the newest celebrity to join Avon’s roster of celebrities that includes Angel Locsin, Marian Rivera, Jodi Sta. Maria, Jennylyn Mercado, among others. He is thrilled to be the brand’s newest endorser. “I am so excited to be joining the Avon family, and I’m extremely happy to be the face of Intense. Intense will definitely help any man feel stronger and more confident.” 

The gift of health

For actress Patricia Javier, nothing beats the gift of good health.

She and her chiropractor husband, Rob Walcher, are on a mission to spread the benefits of holistic health with the help of chiropractic treatment. They have been giving free treatment to long-suffering folks who complain of back, neck, joints, shoulder and leg pains.

The couple stress that prevention is better than cure and having regular chiropractic care equates to well-being in the years to come.

But Rob, who appeared with Vilma Santos in the movie, “Everything About Her,” does not limit himself to relieving clients of their aches. He and wife Patricia are health buffs who exemplify what discipline, exercise, healthy diet and regular chiropractic treatment do to a person.

The Walchers’ chiropractic clinic is at 47-B Sct. Rallos, Brgy. Laging Handa, Quezon City. For details, text or call (0905)444-8172.
