    what to place inside a balikbayan box?

    By DGH | November 10, 2009

    What do kababayans place inside a balikbayan box? I know most would usually canned goods, lotions, shampoos, soaps, chocolates, bags, dresses and other things which they think would be useful for their family back home.

    Recently a friend has been offering us with balikbayan box for only 60-90 euros with no weight limit (price depending on the destination of the package). I was told it’s a big box. I couldn’t think how to fill such a big box. It’s a bit unpractical to send the usual stuff like what other country mates are doing coz these items can also be bought in our country. If ever I should send a box back home, I was thinking of filling it up with things that can’t be bought there like some house accessories and kitchen items from Ikea, used electronics which they can still salvaged like bluray dvd player or a mini-vacuum which I noticed is much cheaper here and other stuff like that.

    Anyway as of now, I didn’t get a balikbayan box yet.  Maybe in the future I’ll have a need for it.  Maybe when the time comes for us to transfer residence. 😉
