This one’s a truly relaxing gift!


A busy mom’s day is filled with errands related to kids, such as helping them with their homework, sending them off to school, or packing their lunch boxes. It can get even more stressful for working mothers who have to juggle responsibilities at home and at work. Let mom forget about her everyday worries, even just for a day by booking a relaxing massage for her at her favorite spa. It will help her rejuvenate her frenzied nerves, and make her feel ready to tackle bigger things ahead.

Just make sure to call ahead and book a reservation since most spas might not accept walk-ins during the pandemic.


2. Trip to the salon

Getting a mani together is also a great bonding opportunity!


Continuing with the me-time for mom theme, you can get her a haircut, manicure or pedicure at any salon of her choice. If you want a complete package, you can throw in waxing services. Nowadays, there are home service manicurists so Mom doesn’t have to worry about making an appointment, or driving to the salon or mall.



3. Staycation or vacation

Make sure to pick a beautiful resort!


Hotels and resorts are sure to come up with packages for Mother’s Day. You can take advantage of their discounted rates to whisk mom away for a quick staycation. If your budget allows, you can even treat her to her dream destination. It’s a big-ticket item, but one she surely deserves after years of looking after you.

As with spas and salons, make sure to book a reservation to ensure a stress-free staycation!


4. Custom jewelry

Stamped necklaces are always a good idea!


No, we’re not talking about diamonds, gold, or silver jewelry. You can leave that up to dad for their wedding anniversary or other special occasion. For Mother’s Day, a personalized bracelet or necklace would be a lovely gift to give mom. It could be made of inexpensive material like faux leather or semi-precious stones. For a personal touch, you can throw in a pendant in her favorite color or her birthstone.


5. Cosmetics or a makeup makeover

Have money to splurge? Go all-out and get your mom a box of cosmetics!


Got a mom who likes glamming up? To give her that radiant glow, fill her makeup kit with cosmetics that will update her routine. It could be a classic, no-fail red lipstick, or face powder that flatters her complexion. When she’s not looking, snoop around in her dresser or makeup kit to get clues on what products she likes. Check out salons or makeup brands giving free or discounted makeovers for Mother’s Day.



6. Mom’s portrait

You can find artists who offer portraits in malls and even online!


If you’ve got an artistic friend, then you can call in a favor and ask him to paint a portrait of mom. All you need to give the artist is a photo of mom looking her best, or a family photo of her with dad and your siblings. Such services are now also available in major shopping malls. It’s a unique gift idea that will stand the test of time.


7. Time with Mom

Sharing a meal together is a classic Filipino celebration.


As cliché as it sounds, the best gift to give mom on Mother’s Day is your precious time. If you can’t be with her physically, give her a call to have a chit-chat with her. Ask how she is doing and what she has been up to lately, share details of your life, or ask for her thoughts on something that’s been on your mind. It will show that you value her opinion and are grateful for her positive influence in your life.
