Christmas is fast approaching. When this festive season comes, one of the Philippines’ Christmas icons, Jose Mari Chan is well-loved for the holiday cheer he brings during the most wonderful time of the year.

What does he love most about Christmas? “Christmas to me is a time for reflection – the months, years that have passed, it’s about strengthening family ties, of giving and sharing,” says the four-time Christmas Ambassador of Shopee, the leading e-commerce platform in Southeast Asia and Taiwan.

The consummate musician also shares his tips on how to be a thoughtful gift giver. “Make a list. Reflect on the things they like individually. Shopee has a wide selection of gifts for the holidays and is very convenient. You can purchase from Shopee while staying at home. It’s the perfect time to do some shopping for your family, friends, and loved ones.”

And what could be his Christmas wish? “For this pandemic to end. All our countrymen should be protected from the COVID-19 virus, to reflect on our priorities, and to be a cheerful giver, make Shopee be part of your gift-giving choices.”

As an early Christmas treat during the Shopee 11.11 – 12.12 Big Christmas Sale online media event, Chan serenaded virtually the media attendees with his heartfelt song, “A Perfect Christmas,” a song he wrote for his wife. He also wishes everyone to have good health, prosperity, joy, and to have a grateful heart.

Shopee kicks off its annual 11.11 Big Christmas Sale, the most anticipated shopping festival in the region. The 11.11 Big Christmas Sale headlines a year when more people and businesses use the platform to connect with each other. In fact, the number of sellers and brands on Shopee surged by 60 percent in 2021, while 1 in 3 shoppers at its recent 9.9 events was new to the platform.

The 11.11 Big Christmas Sale, which ushers in the year’s busiest shopping season, presents Shopee’s greatest selection of deals, fun, and entertainment for everyone.

To add to the festive mood, users can look forward to the widest variety of discounted products from over 25 categories and unbeatable promos such as ₱1 Deals, free shipping with no minimum spend, and 10 percent off daily.

With such an irresistible line-up, the number of new buyers on Shopee is expected to peak further during 11.11. Brands and local MSMEs stand to benefit from the increased traffic, supercharging business growth, and scaling their online presence.

International superstar Jackie Chan also returns with a fun commercial for the 11.11 Big Christmas Sale. After his 9.9 commercial met with viral success by garnering 435 million views online, the action-packed sequel sparked excitement for all users as well.

Fans can catch the commercial here:

“Christmas holds a special place in Filipinos’ hearts. During this season of giving, Shopee Philippines hopes to make this year’s festivities even more memorable for both our users and sellers,” says Martin Yu, Director at Shopee Philippines.

“As the holidays approach, we aim to bring more joy to shoppers and help them save more on things they love by curating the best deals. We’ve also pioneered efforts to expand our digital ecosystem to help more consumers, businesses, and communities’ access and benefit from e-commerce. We invite everyone to join us in making this the biggest and most impactful 11.11.”
