Balikbayan Box: Most Requested Items

send packages to your family through the best online grocery shopping store

As Filipinos, we always look forward for Balikbayan boxes or care packages from our loved ones abroad. Because of the internet and social media, we became more acquainted with famous imported products. The unique fragrance you smell as soon as you open the box makes us so excited to rummage inside it. I asked a few people on Facebook what they expect or want to see inside their Balikbayan boxes when they receive one. These are the common answers I got:

Chocolates and Candies

When I asked them the question, the first thing they all answered were either chocolates or candies. This is the all-time favorite of Filipinos. You can never say it’s a Balikbayan box without chocolates inside. That is how Filipinos love sweets so much, especially kids. Chocolates from other countries are way cheaper compared here, that’s why it is in demand. Aside from the sweet chocolates, some Filipinos also like the sour candies and gummy candies which are not found locally.

Clothing and Shoes

Normally, OFWs would send branded clothes because it can be purchased in a much cheaper price abroad. It wouldn’t matter if it’s brand new or slightly used as long as it’s been sent by their loved ones and has value. Some forms of clothing they would send are shirts, jackets, coats (even though it’s hot in the Philippines), shorts and more.

Filipinos are such big fans of shoes from abroad. The most common shoes we normally ask from our loved ones abroad are either running shoes, basketball shoes or casual shoes. We like shoes abroad, especially from the US, because we think that shoes and other products in US are of excellent quality.

Toys

Whenever we send care packages to our families, kids would always look for the toys.  If you are receiving Balikbayan boxes from USA, you might have seen Ty™, the small-sized stuff toys brand, which is commonly found inside the boxes. I’ve always heard from kids that they wanted either Lego, Barbie or Gundam toys. Can you imagine the excitement and joy they would feel as soon as they open the box and see the toys they’ve always wished to have.

Electronic Gadgets

Having the latest electronic gadget these days, especially for younger generation, is such a big deal. When OFWs would ask their children what they wanted, they would either request for video game consoles, smart phones, or tablets. As technology speedily upgrades, there are lots of new electronic devices in the market.

Canned Goods and Other Food Products

This is where everyone becomes happy. It’ll never be a Balikbayan box without Spam. Food products in some countries are not that expensive so families would prefer all of these in the boxes. Be careful with packing too much because cans contribute a lot on the weight of the box and it could cost you a lot. Also, be aware that we are not allowed to send perishable goods and fluids.

The fear of Balikbayan boxes going through the customs can already be laid to rest because there are lots of online grocery shopping stores where you can buy groceries online for your family without sending them overseas.

There are more unique things you can put inside your box. The most important thing here is, you try to make them happy and make up for the years that you weren’t physically there for your family. Sending care packages to your families is a great way to show love to them. Not because of the material things found inside that box, but because you’ve given every strength and effort to support and love them.

You’ll never have think of leaving your house anymore just to buy groceries. All you have to do is sit back, relax and wait for your orders to arrive. Most online supermarkets would ask you to purchase your products 3-5 days ahead of desired delivery date to ensure availability and quality.
