Tarek -

There are a few ways we can tackle what you want all within the scope of 
but some of it highly depends upon details specific to the relationship 
Product (P) and Offer (O).

1. What is the collection type used in Product for the related offers?
    If this happens to be a List<>, would it be possible to use a Set<> 

2. Is there a requirement that Offer should own the relationship with 
    In other words, is it possible to invert the relationship such that the
    collection side is the owner instead?
