A cardboard box containing items brought by, or sent by, a Filipino that is going back to the Philippines from a foreign country. Balikbayan boxes vary. They can contain personal items, canned goods, food items, toys, toiletries, household/kitchen accessories, electronics, designer clothing, or items that are hard to find in the Philippines.
When going home to the Philippines, you must send a Balikbayan box!

The Filipinos standing in line at the airport had Balikbayan boxes with them.
