Are you still scrambling for last-minute gift ideas for that last person on your list? Or did time sneak past you and now you want to get your Christmas shopping done before Dec. 24?
Here’s a list of small businesses located in the Philippines you can turn to for help.
1) Planted Seeds by Kristina
Many of us have grown up eating peanut butter sandwiches. But as more health conscious community in today’s day and age, we have come to learn that most of these commercially available peanut butter jars are produced with some the unhealthiest ingredients, including hydrogenated oil.
With Planted Seeds by Kristina, you can stop worrying about all those unhealthy ingredients. It’s made with only 3-5 ingredients, depending on the flavor. The base is always peanuts and vegetable oil. For flavored peanut butter, they add anything from coconut sugar to matcha to moringa powders or even activated charcoal. It’s the perfect gift for peanut and nut butter lovers!
