Leonardo Di Caprio’s win at the 88th Academy Awards is a win for everyone and Kate Winslet was there to make sure he sees how we all reacted.
Netizens went for an online group hug, he made sure everyone’s hears about climate change, and we’re wondering how excessively he’ll celebrate. His win is vindication for the great works he’s done for more than a decade, and boy does that feel familiar for many of us and the people we know.
Years of hard work and dedication and still we feel like it’s not enough. But when we hit that milestone, and we do hit a milestone – promotion, graduation, marriage, kids, etc. – it feels like the world is going for a slow clap only for you. It’s the same for every hard working friend and we shouldn’t hesitate to do our part in making him or her feel like a winner. Here are our Oscar Winning gifts for every milestone:
Getting Accepted to College
Congratulate someone’s hard work in reviewing all those college acceptance tests and actually making it through with comfort food by Chelsea Kitchen.
First Day in school
Support several more years of book-reading with even more books that they can easily find at Fully Booked!
After the ceremony, run straight to the unique Yakiniku grilling experience at Sandaya Yakiniku and enjoy more Japanese cuisine favorites.
Teach them what it’s really like to have a Friday Fun Day for the hard workers with drinks and tapas at Rocket Room.
Give them a well-deserved break and send them to adventures they wouldn’t have thought of going to with Uncharted Philippines.

Owning their First House
Fill that new abode with furniture and décor that truly fits their personality with Dimensione.
Let them bask in their wedded bliss with more couple time at the luxurious and exclusive Aruga by Rockwell.
Becoming a Parent
All that sleepless nights will need some relaxing date nights too so while everyone’s giving gifts for the baby, give a gift meant for the parents with a romantic dinner at Le Jardin.
Less work time means more personal time and that’s just the right time to explore the beauty of the Philippines. Guide their long awaited trips with Best of the Best: Philippines.
Whether you’re up for your 6th academy award nomination for more than a decade, drained by months of getting ready for entrance exams, gearing up to possibly being passed over for another promotion, or nerve stricken in signing the lease for your new house, we’ve all been through tough times that always, eventually, end up in one of our best Oscar Winning type of moments. And it is in those moments that we are reminded how much we treasure where we are, what we have and who we’re with. As a thoughtful friend, sister, brother, parent, never miss these moments again and send them a gift that will put an even brighter light on their milestone.
