Home Buddies, These Are 8 Best Buys That You Shouldn’t Miss Out On

Whether you’re itching to redecorate your space or update your wardrobe, these home essentials are a must-have!

Can I just say how happy I am with my recent purchases that I’ve been raving about them to family and friends? From home items like a handy kitchen companion and stylishly elegant dining ware to organic home products, premium camping gear, there are just so many things you can buy online! I’ve even found beautifully crafted purses, wonderfully imaginative woven products, an online health store, and a one-stop delivery service that caters to discerning customers.

Here’s is a list of brands worth perusing:

8. Multi Air Fryer XR with Rotisserie from Baumann Living

A must-have for all kitchen queens! The Multi Air Fryer XR with Rotisserie from Baumann Living gives you delicious fried goodness—made the healthy, oil-free way!

My newest kitchen toy comes with all the bells and whistles that a home cook could ever need or want. In fact, this upgraded model is Baumann’s biggest air fryer yet!

With a 10-liter capacity, the Multi-Fryer XR with Rotisserie has a larger window than its predecessor, so you can check on the doneness of your food with ease. Plus, it boasts of an intuitive digital LED touch screen. And with just a single press you can dehydrate, bake, broil, roast, air-fry, roast, and toast! Cleaning is also a breeze, as the machine has a detachable door.

You know what else makes this deal that much sweeter? It comes with a complete set of accessories—including a rolling cage, an air fryer basket and tray, a drip pan, a rotisserie rod and skewers, and tongs! But there’s more! You can even get access to step-by-step recipes and cooking videos by guest chefs on their Facebook page.

Use the promo code BLMAFXR on their website to get a 5% discount on your first purchase this July.

7. Organic Cleaning Products from Blest Natural

All the good, without the bad—all Blest Natural products are certified organic and vegan.

Using strong-smelling products with harmful chemicals can weaken your immunity, cause headaches, and compromise air quality. That’s why I’m so glad to discover Blest Natural.

It’s the only cleaning brand in the country that has an Ecogarantie label. This means that all its ingredients are biodegradable, 100% organic, purely plant-based, free from petrochemicals, and contain zero GMO (Genetically Modified Organisms). All products deliver the same efficacy as regular cleaning materials, but the big difference is that it’s safe for the whole family.

Blest Natural has a variety of goods: all-purpose cleaner, toilet cleaner, kitchen spray, hand soap, dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent, and fabric conditioner. But my favorite among their selection has to be the fruit and vegetable wash since it removes dirt, wax, and other contaminants really well.

6. Home Decor, Flowers, and Dinnerware from Country Classics

Create beautiful spaces with quality pieces from Country Classics.

Cebu-based shop Country Classics is the dream shop of every stylish hostess. Most especially since the pandemic has given rise to the art of table setting. Much to the delight of its loyal customers, this trés chic home and furniture store keeps on dishing out one beautiful item after another.

Owner Gigi Sy says, “We strive to bring our clients a wide variety of high-quality products at the lowest possible cost.”

Thus, buyers can choose from an impressive selection of fine cutlery, crystal glasses, gold-gilded goblets, porcelain plates in different designs, exquisite vases, blooms, and faux foliage. The shop even offers modish home decors that are sourced both locally and from the international market.

Oh, and did I mention that they have an in-house designer who can help you choose the perfect pieces (and even create gorgeous floral centerpieces) for your tablescape? This extra service, which is done via video call, is made available to VIP clients. Overall, I love that delivery is fast and efficient. My big boxes are flown in within days and are always neatly packed.  

For orders and requirements, you can browse their catalog on Instagram and fill up their order form.

5. Health and Wellness Essentials from The Goodwill Market

The home of better choices. Transform your lifestyle with healthy products from The Goodwill Market.

The Goodwill Market brings the best health and wellness brands from the international market closer to us Filipino consumers. Currently, its website offers over 100 products that are authentic and carefully curated. They even offer healthy alternatives to help end-users achieve a better lifestyle. Not only do these products provide energy for workouts, but they also help in maintaining a low-calorie diet and in boosting immunity.

I love the Umbria truffle items from Italy, which I use to flavor my fries and pasta dishes! On the other hand, the kids are fans of the European biscuit brand Gullon, which is super tasty and comes in fun shapes, too. And surprisingly, it’s sugar-free and gluten-free!

The family has tried and enjoyed other products like the Fruit Me Up—all-natural tropical fruit drinks loaded with vitamins—as well as the Chek Hup Ginger Milk Tea and Chocolate drinks (low-sugar), and the Nutribrown Rice. One cup of this rice provides 8 times more nutrients than eating brown rice!

Browse for more good finds on their website and get a free gift plus enjoy free delivery on your first purchase—from today until December 2021.

4. Camping Products from Outdoors Club Greenhills

Your great adventure awaits! Celebrities Coco Martin and Julia Montes were recently spotted shopping for camping gear at the store.

Do you want to go camping, glamping, or simply want to host a barbecue night in the backyard? Look no further— the Outdoors Club Greenhills (OC) has the perfect equipment for your outdoor needs.

“The OC is a concept store that caters to a niche market that prefers high-end quality outdoor camping products. Since international travel is still risky, more and more families are taking road trips and trying camping for the first time. We assist them by suggesting necessary items that will help make their adventure a success. We have everything—from electric bikes, Rhino racks to self-heating flavored rice bowls!” says owner Erwin Versoza.

What are their bestselling products? Durable tents from Australian brand Darché (plus double bunks that you can pitch on top of your vehicles), grills, pots, chairs, and tables from Korean brand Kovea. They even have gas-powered pizza ovens from Scottish brand Ooni, which are popular for cooks!

Check out their available products over on Facebook!

3. Groceries and Food from the PICK.A.ROO App

“The unicorn symbolizes the brand’s goal to spread rainbows, sprinkle some joy and inspire a whole lot of hope since we launched at the start of the pandemic,” said Pick.A.Roo’s CEO Crystal Gonzales.

PICK.A.ROO is an all-around delivery app that offers a seamless online shopping experience. With over 800 premium brands—ranging from Apple gadgets, gourmet hotel food, high-end restaurants, home and kitchen, hardware, skincare, toys, and more, you can add multiple merchants to your cart and checkout in one go!

Just found out that you’re lacking an ingredient? Want to plan a party in advance? Use the app and choose your preferred delivery time as you order. Now, they’ve even added a feature that lets you “heart” products and add them to your list of favorite items.

Plus, reorder and get on the express checkout, which takes you straight to the available delivery time slots. You won’t be bothered by riders (who, by the way, are very well-groomed and courteous) with pesky calls asking for directions. I must admit those cute aqua PICK.A.ROO eco delivery bags with the happy unicorn print makes me want to order again and again!

On July 15, you can get a free PICK.A. ROO shirt (until supplies last) for food orders P1777 and above. Additionally, from July 15 to 18, you can enjoy free delivery for all food orders worth P777 and above.

2. Handcrafted Woven Pieces from PULO Home

Bright buys! Pulo creates handcrafted woven pieces for the everyday Filipino family.

It was love at first sight when I saw the Instagram posts of PULO Home. Dynamic, inviting, and innovative, Industrial Designer Anna Bernardo’s products are eye-catching, functional, and exceptionally well-made. Having previously worked for both Crate and Barrel and Pottery Barn, Anna brought her expertise and know-how when she started her own company.

“PULO means purveyors of local. The company’s mission is threefold—to provide good design by producing small quantities, to maintain service-based manufacturing, wherein the company is both a conscious producer and advocate for quality craftsmanship. And [finally], to promote value-sharing with the communities that it works with,” shares Anna.

The brand has an array of home decors, storage items, and furniture. Everyday home essentials are available on PULO Home’s Instagram page, while PULO Kids offers must-haves for your children’s decorative organizational needs.

Look out for kitchen and dining bundle sales, as well as discounts on baskets and woven wall accessories—available all month long this July 2021.

1. Woven Bags from Rátan

Simple and Stellar—Rátan’s purses and wallets are sought after by the stylish set.

Watch out for Rátan as it makes its way to the expensive closets of the rich and famous. With no less than Ina Garten—aka HGTV’s The Barefoot Contessa—carrying a one-of-a-kind clutch from the brand, we know that this label is going to go places!

Inspired by childhood memories of beautiful wicker furniture from her grandparents’ home, shoe designer Tish Sevilla has expanded her line to include everyday totes, clutches, and wallets—all made from genuine leather and accented with woven rattan strips. Every piece evokes a quiet simplicity coupled with functionality.

Check out her online store on Instagram and use the promo code RTNMNL and get a 5% discount on your purchase this July.

Happy shopping everybody!
