Gift #1 – Good Morning Mug

When I saw this mug, it got so excited that it featured 12 languages spoken in the Philippines: Tagalog, Bisaya, Manguindanoan, Tausug, Maranoan, Subanen, T’boli, Waray Waray, Ilonggo, Kapampangan, Gaddang, and Ivatan!

This mug is made by Ethel Martinez at Ate Ethel’s Fond Memories (formerly Gunita Designs). Her Esty shop features mugs, magnets, stationary, prints, and custom art! I love Ethel’s color palettes and her illustration style.

If you are looking for unique Filipino-inspired gifts, check out Ate Ethel’s Fond Memories!

Ate Ethel's Fond Memories

Ethel Martinez, shop owner of Ate Ethel’s Fond Memories (formerly Gunita Designs), is a 2nd Generation Filipino-American and currently resides in Yorba Linda, CA with her husband and two kids.

Although she’s a professional graphic designer by day, she loves
working on this beloved Filipino-themed shop by night.

Ethel has always been strongly inspired by her parents and her imaginative youth. She wants to tell her story and how she remembered the Philippines through art. She’s also hoping that her Filipino customers get that sense of nostalgia or a “gunita” when they see her designs. She understands that even though Filipinos work hard and cannot be home in the Philippines at the moment, she hopes that her designs will bring them joy when they’re feeling home sick.

However, do keep in mind that Ate Ethel’s Fond Memories is a shop for EVERYONE. If you love Ethel’s style and would like to request an illustration, please do not hesitate to contact her. She’ll be more than happy to help.
