Right before you head to a chaotic election Monday, we suggest you take mom out for some relaxing mother-daughter bonding. While it’s cool to give her a material token of your appreciation for all the love and support she has given you, nothing compares to the gift of time. Admit it, living the “adult life” you’ve probably spent majority of your hours at work, with your friends, or with your boyfriend. Right, right? This Sunday, make up for all the lost hours by spending time with the most important woman in your life by choosing from the list of fun activities we’ve prepared for you below.
Join a Flower Arrangement class at Te Amo Floristeria Manila
If your mom is the type who likes sprinkling fresh blooms in every corner of your home on a weekly basis, then this is an activity she will surely enjoy. They even have terrarium workshops if you want to try something totally new!
Location: G/F Active Fun Bldg., 28th St. Corner 9th Ave, BGC, Taguig
Go on a pampering date at Maison by Nail Spa
Avail of all the relaxing services they offer and then top everything off with some shiny lacquer from their extensive nail polish collection. Mom can sip on some tea while you have some chia water—both of which are just two of the beverage options are available at Maison. Afterwards, you can head to Rockwell for some good ole retail therapy.
Location: G/F Edades Tower and Garden Villas, Amorsolo Drive, Rockwell Center, Makati
Try a different kind of Cocktail at The White Drip Beauty Lounge
Check out White Drip, a unique beauty lounge that offers beauty cocktails that can give you whiter, more radiant skin, and a healthy overall feeling. The first of its kind to be opened in malls, the place is as cozy as a nail spa with IV drips that are pure magic. Mom can get the anti-aging drip, while you can opt for the detox & energy drip to de-stress. Now that’s an experience you won’t get from any other clinic.
Location: 5th Level, SM The Block, SM North EDSA
Get a haircut at Creations by Lourd Ramos Salon
The summer heat is a sign that it's time to chop off your locks! Who better to do it with than the woman who first cut your fine tresses as a toddler, right? For mom, you only pick the best and Lourd, along with his trained staff, can assure you pure hair bliss.
Location: 2nd Level Cedar Executive Bldg. 1006, Arnaiz Ave, Makati
Indulge in some retail therapy at Rustan’s
No mother and daughter bonding would be complete without shopping! For a change, why not learn a thing or two about jewelry? We suggest you check out Ippolita, Adami & Martucci, and Ziio, three brands that we’re sure both you and your mom can share and wear.
Location: Rustan’s EDSA Shangri-la or Makati
Wine and Dine at Sofitel
Treat your mom like a queen at Sofitel for lunch. They've prepared unique activities and special dishes to celebrate Mother’s Day in style. Children can prepare sweets at the chocolate atelier and a number of prizes will also be given away on the day. Finally, end your Sunday with a pampering experience at Le Spa.
Location: CCP Complex Roxas Boulevard, Pasay
At the end of the day, it doesn’t really matter what you end up doing as long as you have fun with mom!
