Five fun things you can do with mom today

Mother’s Day will always be the best time to celebrate her life and the impact she made and continues to make in our lives. There are so many ways to make her feel special—writing her a simple letter, cooking her favorite meal or even driving her to a relaxing destination to take respite from her responsibilities.

Still puzzled on what you can do today? Here’s a few ideas from Ford Motor Company that you can do with her even without much planning.

Get a dose of culture—go on a date with mom at a museum. 
Treat her to a spa date

This is the perfect time to indulge her in a mani-pedi, massage, and sauna to give her a well-deserved rest. No mom can resist a whole day of pampering and to make this even more special, drive off to several spa places in Tagaytay for that memorable mom-daughter or mom-son road trip.

Take her to a shopping spree

Take her to a shopping date where she can spoil herself with a new dress or a new pair of comfy slip-ons. Make the whole experience more interesting by taking her on a quick trip to Taytay Tiangge in Taytay, Rizal where you can practice your bargaining skills with mom.

Go on a staycation

Drive mom to a nearby destination, like Tagaytay, to celebrate her special day today. 
A simple staycation in a secluded location makes for a relaxing family weekend getaway sans tedious planning. Take advantage of hotel promotions available. You may opt to go to hotels in the metro or you may drive out of town and book a place where your mom can unwind and have a simple yet fun bonding experience with the family.

Spend a day at the beach

There’s only a few things more relaxing than taking a trip out of town where you can disconnect from the hustle and bustle of Manila. Driving her to the beach with the whole family will definitely make your mom feel happy, as she gets to enjoy some beach activities and a relaxing dip in the crystal clear water.

Arrange a dinner and movie night

Schedule a date with your mom at her favorite restaurant where you two can partake of sumptuous meals. Cap it off with a movie date to make her feel even more special. Making an effort of reserving seats at the restaurant and at the cinema will easily give you the “child of the year” award.

There are thousands of ways to make our moms feel our affection on her special day, but at the end of the day, the most important thing for them is to spend it with the people they value the most—family. Family is indeed everything to our mothers. They never stop being moms even during road trips and out of town activities.
