Take your pick from these luxurious treats from various swanky establishments online and around the metro.
STELLAR FASHION. Tweetie De Leon-Gonzales, ‘90s supermodel and actress, is one celebrity mom admired by many.
She has made indelible marks in the careers she has dabbled into, and still continues to do so as she ventures into a new field— fashion designing.
She recently released her clothing line designed for modern, empowered women who take on different roles everyday, including moms like herself.
The Tweetie De Leon for AVA collection is being sold exclusively through shopping website AVA.ph with a special pre-order discount of 10% off regular prices.
The promo is open from now until May 20, so go get your mom a nice combination of figure-flattering tops and skirts for work days, a chic maxi dress for those special occasions or a one-shoulder jumpsuit for those weekend brunches with the family.
If online shopping is not your thing, take mom to the nearest Freeway, Ensembles, or Solo boutique and get her as many classy dresses as she wants without breaking your budget.
From May 10 to 13, all moms get a special 30% discount from Freeway’s National Artists collection, Ensembles’ Chris Diaz collection, and all of Solo’s Ladies’ wear pieces.
FANCY LIVING. Bring back heartwarming memories with mom over a special meal at Crowne Plaza Manila Galleria’s in-house restaurants.

Reminisce your own childhood as the restaurant’s head chefs create dishes inspired by their own mothers’ cooking.

Executive chef Eric Costille also boasts of his rabbit cocotte with rosemary and olives with gratinated polenta, which he learned from his French mother, who was best at cooking Italian fare.
Homestyle meals never looked and tasted better with an unlimited serving of your favorite champagne or the buffet’s in-house blend mojitos throughout lunch hour.
Plus, marvel at the wonderful creations of internationally known designers Mark Bumgarner and Pia Gladys Perey as they showcase their latest collections in an exclusive fashion show that will be presented to the restaurant's dining guests.
