During my first trip to Boracay, I chanced upon a quaint store that is quite familiar to me. You see when I was in Elementary, I used to collect stationeries and stickers. At a very young age, I was familiar with Precious Moments, that when I found a store that sells dolls and figurines, I definitely must have one. Going back to Manila, I had the mermaid Precious Moments doll because it symbolizes the sea, and Boracay is one of the most memorable beaches I've been to.

Over the years, I thought that it would be my first and last collection, but then when my parents went to the Precious Moments Christmas Village, they bought me home a another one, until my dolls are now three. I'm a kid at heart. And I know that Precious Moments are a perfect gift for the young and the young at heart this coming Christmas Season.

Mr. Jojo Sonillo welcomes us at Precious Moments
Let’s also be realistic and practical in gift giving. We want to have the pleasure and the leisure of Christmas shopping. “If you don’t want to tire yourself falling in long lines just to buy Christmas gifts, you should plan ahead.” said Manila Precious Moments President Jose Eduardo “Jojo” Sonillo. People don’t have to wait for a couple of hours just to get into the front of long lines because they can now purchase items as their Christmas presents.

Since 2005, Manila Precious Moments, distributed by Jojo’s Christmas Cottage Industries who have exclusive rights to distribute Precious Moments in the Philippines, offers beautiful and the most sought after Christmas gifts. These figurines will not only touch your heart, but will move the person you're giving the gift to. One collector shared to us that she loved how there are biblical inscriptions in their products, and definitely in trying times like today these messages give hope. Plus a portion of their proceeds are donated to charitable causes. 

The history of Precious Moments, is widely known for its adorable, tear drop-eyed collectible figurines and gift items is created by Mr. Samuel J. Butcher, one of America’s most beloved artists. In 1975, Precious Moments artworks were initially introduced to the public through inspirational greeting cards and posters, and the first Precious Moments figurines were revealed in 1978. Today, we know Manila Precious Moments by Samuel J. Butcher Lifestyle Corporation as a company that manages cafes, gift shops, museum, restaurants, and similar ventures that deal with the needs, wants and lifestyle of present generation of customers.
