Gourdo’s is one of those shops where I can stay for hours just to admire the premium, stylish, as well as value for money products and then come out with shopping bags later hehehe. Items hard to resist are cookware and bathroom accessories. I consider Gourdo’s a happy place where I can spend my me-time imagining my dream kitchen, the decors I wanna see in my living room, etc. If you haven’t been to any branch yet, I suggest you visit the new shop at Glorietta, it’s ten times bigger, which means there are now ten times more reasons to linger and leisurely browse their display.
Gourdo’s entered the market in 2001. Since then, it has proven itself a reliable source for the best homeware from all over the globe – from Europe to North America and Asia.
It opened its 2nd branch in 2004, a 26-square meter corner in Glorietta 4. From that small spot, Gourdo’s efficiently catered to its clientele. But last month, Gourdo’s moved to a space in Glorietta that’s ten times bigger, which means there are now ten times more reasons to linger and leisurely browse their display.
Within the warm, French-inspired interiors, expect to find premium names in kitchenware and cookware. Among the familiar brands in the roster are Wilton, Wusthof, Microplane, Lodge, Ballarini, Swissmar, Libbey, Tovolo, and Trudeau. Gourdo’s also has its own in-house labeled products.
Stylish settings can be easily achieved with value-for-money options of dinnerware, cutlery, glassware, and linens. Buffet set-up needs are met with serving tools like chafers, buffet plates, grazing boards, and service sets. If a raclette party is on your calendar, Gourdo’s has everything for a cheese or chocolate fondue. You can put together a Spanish spread with their paelleras, cazuelas, and Spanish food ingredients.
Also available are tools for those who are into bartending such as copper cocktail shakers and stemware. Those who prefer coffee and tea won’t be disappointed with the selection of accessories and coffee beans and the line-up of tea brands. Gourdo’s carries Twinings, Tipson, and Basilur.
Even baking ingredients are available. Are you looking for Wilton fondant and food coloring, chocolates for praline-making, colored dusting powder for sugar crafts, cookie and cupcake decorating? Head to Gourdo’s. They also sell home-grown favorites like Basimatsi vinegar as well as chocolates from Auro, Malagos, Manila Chocolatier, and Theo and Philo.
It’s not just all little things at Gourdo’s, don’t be surprised to see electric kitchen appliances under the labels of Kitchen Aid, Oster, Kenwood, Vitamix, Braun, George Foreman, and Russel Hobbs.
“Our kitchen section is most popular but we also carry items for other parts of the home,” pointed out Susan San Miguel, General Manager of Gourdo’s.
They have a bed and bath corner that offers beddings, pillows in various shapes and sizes, towels, and bathroom accessories. A selection of soaps, sprays, and candles can also be found there.
The terrarium bar is difficult to miss with its row of succulents and a stash of tiny shovels, pots, potting mix, pumice, rocks, and pebbles.
