By the time you read this we will be about 47 days and 6 hours until Christmas! Even less in the Philippines. This means you have about 17 days to shop and ship your gifts to your loved ones back home Philippines!
To help you cut the time, I've constructed a list of vendors to help you get your presents home in time, hopefully, as well as Pinoy handicraft vendors for yourself, to get you in the spirit of Christmas!
Balikbayan boxes buy and ship (from Boston and New England):
J-Mart Asian Food Store
Pinoy Republic Worcester
Surepinoy Oriental Food Mart
New England Express Cargo Forwarder, LLC aka NEEX Cargo
(here are drop-off locations for boxes in and around your area)
Box Express International Courier
A2 Global Shipping
Nile Cargo Carrier
Fun fact! The word ‘balikbayan’ and ‘balikbayan box’ was added to the Oxford Dictionary in 2015.
