I love Mother’s Day. I really do. I love how every Mother’s Day my Facebook feed fills with pictures of my awesome friends as innocent babies hugging their equally awesome mothers I know as “tita”. And I love the scanned copies of old photographs from dusty albums that suddenly reappear—pictures ranging from the hot mommas to the grandmas with the twinkle in their eyes—like a parade of the most beautiful women in the world. Real, honest, human beauty. And above all I love the stories. The stories that go along as captions to these photos. The childhood memories, the uncalled-for fights that now seem so silly, the embarrassing stories…all the anecdotes. And the sudden profession of those three words that don’t get said as much as they should: “I love you.”
You’ve heard it probably a million times your entire life, but it doesn’t make it any less true—without our mother’s we wouldn’t be here. We would be nothing. We owe, literally, everything we are to them.
And so, in celebration of the best women in our lives, last weekend, the country’s largest network, Smart, in partnership with Stores Specialists, Inc. (SSI) and Philippine Airlines launched a three-day sale at Central Square in Bonifacio Global City to give mothers the proper treat they deserve.
Whether it’s for shopping, traveling, or communication, great deals were in store for everyone celebrating Mother’s Day. And it’s not entirely exclusive for this extra special day. Last weekend’s launch served as a reminder that we can celebrate our moms every day.
How? Here are three suggestions to show your mom how much you love them to infinity:
3. Take her shopping.
Come on ladies, let’s just admit it. Retail therapy is true! And with the way mom has taken care of us—and still does—from the moment she brought us into the world until now, no matter how old we are, they truly deserve to be showered with good things! Yes, to shower them with love is one thing, but doesn’t it feel great to show her you care with a matching new pair of shoes? *wink wink* She’ll appreciate the gesture, for sure.
SSI knows that bonding time is important, so last weekend, from May 6-8, Central Square BGC held a three-day sale which showed prices at some stores down all the way to 40%!
2. Travel with her.
Travel is always a great experience, and it’s even greater if you travel with someone you love. After all, moments are made more special when you’re sharing it with someone, right? And who doesn’t want to travel? Think of all the times your mom took you out when you were kid. To the amusement park, to a kiddie show, to the beach, or even just to the park. She wanted you to see the world. Time to return the gesture. Travel with mom.
Sign up for Philippine Airlines Mabuhay Miles and get travel plans going! Additional exclusive perks are in store for Smart Infinity members, while those who signed up between May 6-8 received complimentary miles from PAL Mabuhay Miles.
1. Call her more.
It’s so easy to get caught up in our own lives especially as adults, but what we fail to realize is that a simple call to our dear mothers can mean the world to them. Communication is so vital, yet so often overlooked. So pick up the phone much more times than you used to. Don’t just call her up on Mother’s Day, call her up even on the simplest day, perhaps just to tell her how thankful you are for her.
