This is her mom-ent! With Mother's Day right around the corner, you better start thinking of ways to spoil the number one woman in your life. Below, allow us to suggest 10 very thoughtful, very refined gifts she's bound to adore. Celebrate her tireless, unconditional love with some ideas below:
1. Sweets and blooms. If she's a classicist, consider joining Laduree's special Mother's Day raffle! Or, you know, simply pick up a pretty, limited-edition Jardin box over at their 8 Rockwell shop.
2. Get mom summer-ready with some tropical-inspired arm candy care of Plains & Prints' collab with Aranaz!

3. She deserves all the pampering in the world, so take her to I'M Hotel, home to the Philippines' first and only Japanese onsen-style spa, for a day of blissful R&R. Check out details here!
4. Nothing says "I cherish you" like custom jewelry! Little White Pouch creates dainty, bespoke sets she'll swoon over. Request for her favorite gems—might we suggest these beautiful Mikimoto pearls?
5. How about a fragrant present in the chicest black-and-cream box? We love Jo Malone's timeless Basil & Neroli scent, and we're certain mom will, too!
6. She'll adore this roomy carryall for a ton of reasons: It's big enough to hold her daily essentials, versatile enough to go with all her outfits, and pink enough to make anyone swoon.

7. Go on, give her a ring. Literally. A modern-day classic, the Bulgari B.zero1 Design Legend is the perfect gift for all our #coolmoms out there. Created in special collaboration with architecture genius Zaha Hadid, two rings in white or rose gold with matching pendants are enriched with pavé diamonds, filling the curvilinear and fluid structure of the iconic piece with blinding sparkle.

8. Form over function? Why not both? The beloved Panthere de Cartier doubles as an elegant coil bracelet and functional timepiece, and for 2018, it comes in a delightful array of variations. Choose from a double or triple loop in yellow, rose, or white gold—diamonds are optional but encouraged!

9. Another lovely idea? Mimic the tea parties of your childhood at TWG, where an exclusive Mother's Day set menu awaits! Indulge in the deliciously poached seabass served on romaine lettuce in a kombu broth, accompanied by summer vegetables and basil pesto with matcha oil. Brimming with bold flavors, pair this course with a warm cup of Jasmine Queen Tea, a delicately fashioned green tea with jasmine flowers. Seal the exhilaration of a superb meal with a strawberry mousse dome with dark chocolate and honeycomb bits, crowned with Love Me Tea infused with Chantilly cream–a sweet finish she'll remember fondly.

10. If you know that the way to her heart is via good food, whisk her away to City of Dreams Manila for the Nobu Mother’s Day Sunday brunch buffet on May 13! This is Japanese-Peruvian fusion at its finest.
Feast on house specialties like black cod miso, soy glazed salmon, and Nobu-style sisig—plus, look forward to a carving station highlighting delectably-roasted whole fish lapu-lapu and prime ribeye. There'll be a Mother’s Day-themed dessert corner, too, and as an extra treat, all moms will be given a gift of Nobu chocolate petit fours.
The Nobu Mother’s Day brunch starts at P3880 per person! Check out more details here.
