On Sunday, May 11 this year, people all over the world rejoice to one of the most celebrated holidays of the year – Mother’s Day.. Every day could be mother’s day for some, but it’s nice that you devote a little time and effort on this day to be with your all-time protector, care-giver, #1 fan and everything wonderful – your Mom.
All of us may not be mothers (yet), but all of us, of all ages, are our Mom’s forever kids. There are different ways to celebrate mother’s day by making her extra pampered. What else do you think will make her happy on her special day?
Our moms definitely deserve only the best; here are some gifts you could give them on their special day:
Some women don’t like flowers because they wither, but most girls definitely love the idea of receiving it. Take it from the florist who makes big sale on Valentine’s and Mother’s Day. Surprise your momma even with a piece of flower, or if you feel like it, a bouquet. If you’re going to buy days ahead, make sure that a source of water is available. If you’re not a hiding expert, however, have it (signed, sealed) delivered in the morning of Mother’s Day.
Don’t let her cook, instead, treat her to a place where she will surely enjoy the food. Some hotels and restaurants in the Metro offer big discounts to moms and almost all credit card holders. For sure, this day will be a busy day for most restos, so try to book ahead of time. Inquire today or regret.
Beauty products are surely on sale during this season, but, we say perfumes are the sweetest to give. They say “Women love perfumes as men love cars”, perfumes make a woman feel better about herself. Try to surprise your mom with a purchase of one of her favorite perfumes’ next bottle and expect kisses after receipt.
Have you ever wonder why portraits are created? Part of the reason is for it to serve as a constant reminder to anyone who will look at it. Research for the best, most touching and memorable photo of you and your mom, have it framed and give it to her on her day.
Salon & Spa
It’s payback time for all her 24/7 hard work; make this day her most relaxing day, ever. Since it’s Sunday plus Mother’s Day, salons and spa centers are surely jam-packed, so take time to go to her favorite place and reserve a certain time slot. Or, go with her on an earlier date, so come Mother’s day, your Mom (and you) has gone a make over already.
If you have the budget, or you can avail a 0% installment plan on your credit card, buy her precious jewels. Women love jewelries not because of its worth, but more of its sentimental value. Give her something to remember in the future.
And… If you feel like giving your Mom a fabulous treat, make it not just Mother’s Day but, Mother’s Days. Going to different places like out-of-town or out-of-the-country could give you and your family a different experience and new memories to remember. There are affordable credit card promos going to Thailand and Singapore that you can make use of if you’re a Metrobank credit card holder.
