5/11/17 9:00 AM
Moms, especially new moms, look forward to Mother’s Day. Flowers, breakfast, and a heartwarming social media post are undoubtedly sweet, but here are more fun and memorable ways to surprise your mom on her special day:
1. A family staycation at a hotel or Airbnb
Relax in a seafront house or villa over the weekend. There are several beautiful homes for every taste and budget, and only a few hours away from the metro, at Airbnb.
If your family prefers to stay at a luxury hotel, check out Visa Epic Experiences for great deals in hotels such as Discovery Suites, Azure Beach Club, and Movenpick Hotel in Cebu.
2. A feast delivered at her doorstep
Let her sleep in without worrying about what to serve the family for lunch. No matter where you are in the metro, great food is only a few taps away with foodpanda.
3. A worry-free movie date night
Netflix is awesome but this is one of those special occasions where you have to treat your mom or wife like royalty. Go out on a movie date in the best movie theaters in the city. Get first dibs on the best seats and avoid long lines by buying your tickets online via SureSeats or SM Cinemas.
Filipinos love to dine in restaurants before or after a movie. Visa Epic Experiences offers great deals including 20% off Applebee’s, Aracama, Draft Gastropub, or The Barn by Tipsy Pig. Check out their list of partner restaurants here!
