Selfie with Honestbee. Everybody wanted to get a picture with Honestbee, so of course, I got one too, hahaha 😀

Honestbee launched their Christmas offerings last Friday and I was able to check out what’s available for our Christmas shopping convenience!

We all know Christmas is a time for happiness and celebration, but we can’t escape the reality that it’s also the most stressful time of the year! Everyone’s rushing to make their annual goals at work; planning get-togethers, family gatherings, celebrations, parties; and trying to find the time to go shopping for gift items to show the people in their lives how much they are appreciated. Traffic is the worst, the malls are packed, finding parking is a hassle. How can you make this time of the year easier on yourself?

I really do not like the long lines, the hellish traffic, and all the problems that come with shopping during the Christmas season. So it’s with much anticipation that I went to see what Honestbee had in store for their Christmas offerings launch, and I wasn’t disappointed!

Philippine Daily Inquirer’s Best Desserts

You can order the pies, cakes, cookies, crepes and chocolates that have been recognized as the best by the Philippine Daily Inquirer Lifestyle. *I am using a desktop for the screenshots because it’s just easier to see everything on desktop vs the app, but all this is also available on the Honestbee app.

I’m really happy about the selection of desserts! You won’t be embarrassed to bring any of these to your next potluck. Potluck talaga ang naisip, haha. It’s because when we have get together with friends, it’s usually potluck, and having to make a stop to pick up the food that we will be bringing to the party is an extra hassle especially with the current traffic situation. With Honestbee, there is an option to have the food delivered to our house ready to take with us to the party, or have it delivered directly to the party venue, usually a friend’s house. That’s one thing off the to-do list, quick and easy. For bigger celebrations and potlucks, you can order party platters from the other shops.

I got to meet some of the people behind the delicious food:

HOW TO ORDER

You can order via the app or by desktop. These are located under “GROCERY“.

Then click on “All Stores”, it should bring you to the “Christmas Offerings” tab.

I already have a step-by-step guide on how to order groceries on Honestbee. This is basically the same process.

What I’m actually looking for right now from Honestbee is a search function! If there’s one, I can’t seem to find it. For example, if I want to order a chocolate cake, I want to type “chocolate cake” on the app-wide search and I’ll be shown a list of chocolate cakes available on Honestbee. Right now, what I do is I manually scroll through each of the shops that look like they might have it and look for chocolate cake manually. It was fine when there were only a few merchants, but now that the list has grown (which of course I’m very happy about) it’s becoming too time-consuming. I hope they’ll have something for this soon! 🙂
