Filipinos are known for their hospitality and appreciation when receiving gifts, tokens, and freebies. When coming from abroad, or even when traveling from a local place outside a person's residence, it is customary to bring souvenir items when meeting friends and relatives (traditionally called "pasalubong" in Filipino) in the Philippines. Even new acquaintances can get that much-loved “pasalubong” as well. This guide is primarily for foreigners intending to buy gifts for Filipinos. When looking for popular gift ideas, these don't necessarily have to be grand or expensive, as even a simple keychain or any small souvenir can make Filipinos feel happy and remembered.
