Some 175,000 Facebook users on Thursday watched Vice President Leni Robredo unpack boxes of gifts from supporters during her presidential campaign, providing comfort to those still grieving over her loss.

Robredo plans to archive unique gifts and share the duplicates, including bags, pins, tumblers, and lip tints.

Robredo saved an ornate headband for actress and host Jolina Magdangal, thanking the 90s pop icon turned "momshie" on TV, along with her rocker husband Mark Escueta, for "never saying no" to her invitations.

The outgoing vice president promised to visit them after the graduation of her youngest daughter, Jillian. She reserved one set of BTS merchandise for her.

"Sino may gusto ng blouse? Madami tayo nyan... Ano size mo Karen? Para masuot mo? PM lang," Robredo said in response to a viewer who asked for one of her blouses from a rack in the background.

"Hindi pa bukas, Jill. Bakit nagma-mine ka na?" she joked to youngest daughter Jillian.

Robredo, holding up a pink head-massager, said "Parang gusto ko 'to pag masakit ang ulo ko. Very simple, but very practical gift." 

Asking her staff to bubble-wrap the gifts, they jokingly said they have enough to cover her with it. "'Di naman ako fragile," she said.

"Thank you sa lahat sa inyo na tinaya ang pangalan karera para ipaglaban ang bayan, saludo po ako sa inyo," she said.

"Madami tayo time to organize after June 30," as she rummaged through handmade pins, ribbons, keychains and cards.
