While dining out with mom is a fine way to celebrate the queen of the house’s special day, there are other different, not-so-usual gifts and activities that can make her feel cherished and loved.
Wine, dine, and listen to an orchestra (May 12)
Treat mom to a night of melody, elegance, and sumptuous delights at the SM Aura Premier Atrium which will be filled with classical music by the Manila Symphony Junior Orchestra a day before Mother’s Day. The lounge will be adorned in no less than Crate and Barrel divans; neighbouring tenants like La Mere Poulard and Providore are convenient choices for dinner. The show in the atrium is open to all mall guests.
Express your love with custom-made cards (May 12 to 13)
Instead of buying greetings cards at the local bookstore, why not create one with the help of calligraphists and watercolor artists? Learn the basics at the free workshop hosted by Scribe and Just Add Water at the Skypark of SM Aura Premier. Do you and your mom love crafts or interested to dabble in it? You can spend an afternoon of arts and crafts at the park and surprise her with your personalized letter. Complement your picnic date with a selection of wine and charcuterie available at Barcino’s and Prego Trattoria.
Experience a unique gallery of flora (May 7 to 13)
Take your mother on a date to see a rare exhibit of flowers encased in glass, found at the main entrance of SM Aura Premier. Representing each characteristic of our mothers, the showcase is an ode to the most important women in our lives. Complete your art affair with brunch at Paul or Cibo, and give her a stem or a bouquet of roses.
Shower her with complimentary gifts (May 12 to 13)
On Mother’s Day weekend, pick from an array of luxury presents such as Jo Malone fragrances, MAC makeup, hotel gift certificates, wine, and chocolate, and instantly take home your gift, care of SM Aura Premier.
