When we say Titos and Titas of Manila, we don’t mean the brothers and sisters of our parents who live in Metro Manila. We’re talking about the members of our friend group who always pull out their ever-reliable Katinko collection during your catch-up dates and leaves early to sleep by 7 PM. They (may or may not) act older than they actually are, and we love them for it!
Admit it or not, there’s always a tito or a tita in our barkada. And if you’re wondering what to get for these people, here are some gift ideas that our Titos and Titas of Manila will surely appreciate.
