‘Gift of time’ is the best gift to give this Mother’s Day


Quite so often, we struggle to find the right gift for our moms because in reality, no gift can match the love they give to us. But little do we know that all they want is quality time with family—and a quick pampering time, as well.

There are numerous ways by which you can treat your moms with the gift of time. Here are some ideas:

  1. Prepare breakfast for her. Every morning, your mom prepares your food before you go to school or work. That’s why it’s a nice idea to surprise her with a breakfast in bed, along with some fresh flowers and a Mother’s Day card.

If you can splurge a little, let your mom feast on international cuisines at Novotel Manila’s Food Exchange on May 13, starting from PHP 1,988 nett per person. This package includes a fun cupcake decorating session for mom and their little ones with Novotel’s Pastry chefs.

Cucina’s meat carving station

A feast is best enjoyed with the whole family. Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s Cucina will let moms dine for free when accompanied by two (2) paying adults. Enjoy a culinary journey through Cucina’s fine action stations and cuisines, topped off with a delectable dessert spread

2. Go on a spa date with her. Let your mom relax her mind and body by bringing her to InBalance Spa at Novotel Manila. They offer a 3-hour Mommy N Me Interlude for two persons in a private treatment suite which includes steam bath, milk bath soak in a whirlpool bathtub, oriental foot spa, signature body scrub, and aromatherapy body massage at Php 6,700 nett.

Algotherm Facial at Flow Spa

Treat her to a 2.5-hour Pure Bliss package at Marco Polo Ortigas Manila’s Flow Spa, which includes a Salt and Aloe Vera Body Scrub, Aromatherapy Massage, and Algotherm Facial for Php 5,100.

3. Shop with your mom. Perhaps it’s been a while since you last handpicked a wardrobe, a fragrance, or a watch for her so it’s the best time to do this again. Update your mom’s closet by picking trendy yet sophisticated clothes. Pick her a fragrance that matches her classy aura and gift her with an elegant and functional watch, such as the TAG Heuer Aquaracer Lady Calibre 9 Automatic timepiece.


4. Spend quality time with the whole family. Toward the end of the day, allow your mom to bond with the whole family. Whether it is a relaxing staycation at home or a pampering stay in a hotel, what truly matters is you get to spend the day together as one family.
