Manila, Philippines – The sun is out and summer is here! As Filipinos prepare to spend vacations with their families and friends, leading mobile shopping app Shopee shares its widest range of best buys yet for the summer.

“Shopee continues its mission to provide users with the best online shopping experience by offering the largest selection of products at the best prices this season. We already have an incredible range of products especially in Beauty and Fashion that our users love to shop for and we are happy to share our new additions for the summer, especially must-have gadgets, electronics, and home items,” says Macy Castillo, Shopee’s Head of Commercial Business.

Here are some products and tips to help get more out of the summer break without breaking the bank.

Be fearless under the sun

Spending time outdoors is a staple for the season, which means it’s important to keep yourself cool and protected. Rechargeable fans (prices start at ₱90) and refillable water bottles (from ₱35) help manage soaring temperatures, while sunscreen like Belo’s SunExpert Face Cover SPF 40 (₱329) and Dewy Tree’s Brightox Multi Sun Cream SPF 50 (₱849) protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays.

Capture every moment

These days when everything is shared on social media, arm yourself with cameras and gadgets for every adventure you take. Enthusiasts can choose amongst action cameras from Xiaomi, SJCAM, A7, and Supremo, which start at ₱699 or camera drones, which start at ₱2,000, while selfie fans can count on finding a variety of monopods with shutters, clip lens, magnifiers, and ring lights that start at ₱30 — there’s really no excuse to miss any moment this summer.

Dress to impress

Summertime means socials. From coffee and brunch to sunset cocktails and all night parties, options abound from classic button down shirts (from ₱100) and little black dresses (from ₱130) to eye-catching shorts (from ₱75) and printed playsuits (from ₱250), as well as swimwear in every color (men’s from ₱150, women’s from ₱200) — never run out of options to mix and match. Ladies can finish off these outfits with waterproof Heroine mascaras (₱600) and KJM Cheek and Lip Stains (₱150), while lads can get sleeker looks with pomades from Eight Wolves (₱250).

Fun at home

Those who prefer to skip the out-of-town trips can stock up on games and activities like all-time classics Monopoly and Jenga or the wildly entertaining Pie Face and Speak Out each for endless hours of fun. Alternatively, home cooks and avid bakers can get easy-to-use tools like food processors, hand mixers, and cooking utensils to improve their kitchen skills. All are available on Shopee at under ₱500 each, so staying at home doesn’t have to mean missing out on the fun.

Earn over the break

Feeling entrepreneurial this season? If you’re more in the mood to make money than shop, start your own business over the summer by selling products on Shopee! Sell with the same account you use when you buy – simply take a picture, write a short description, set a price, and upload! Sit back, relax, and wait for orders to come in.

All items come with Free Shipping nationwide on orders ₱500 and above along with Cash on Delivery payment option via the Shopee app.
