8 Awesome Places to Take Your Mom this Mother’s Day
By Jaime Gonzalo
Mother’s Day is just around the corner and it’s the best time to celebrate the woman without whom we’d literally be nothing. Treat them to a day where they can relax, get pampered and forget about their motherly duties–even if only for a day. Giving back to the most special person in your life isn’t a chore after all, so put some effort into making her day extra special by booking these awesome places!
Stacy’s looks like it came right out of a doll-house. It is a cozy restaurant with homey decorations and a garden set-up that offers great ambience for those who wish to dine-in. The menu is scribed in chalk and the color scheme of the furniture makes the restaurant very elegant and bright. Try ordering their bacon & mushroom carbonara or their beef casserole and accompany it with a classic Shirley Temple!
7. Nurture Spa Village

For her fix of pampering, bring your mom to Nurture Spa in Tagaytay where they offer different kinds of traditional massages. There’s no better way for a mother to unwind than by spending time with her children in a place of relaxation and bliss. Treat her to the best massage of her life while surrounded by cool breezes.
6. Beach Trip
Take your mom out on a one on one adventure to the beach. Start by planning your awesome road trip together. Once you arrive at your destination try and teach her a life skill like surfing or maybe even paddle boarding. There are many surf beaches that are very reachable from the Metro like Zambales, La Union, Baler, Pagudpud, and Real Quezon. At the end of the day, cap the night off with some meaningful conversation over a bonfire. All the aforementioned beaches have their own clean and surprisingly cheap accommodations which can be booked via text or a simple phone call.
