Having said that, we rounded up the best splurge-worthy gift ideas for the number one woman in your life (and who knows, maybe some of these items are more your type!) So get your mom and your wallet ready for the ultimate treat.

Scentsational Surprise

A whiff of her new favorite fragrance is sure to remind your mom of your love everyday. It’s a scientific fact—our olfactory functions conjure the most vivid of memories. So, kick off a fun day out with your mom with a fab, new scent.

Bvlgari Omnia Pink Sapphire

While this new scent from Bvlgari is marketed towards the Gen Z, we have a feeling your mom will appreciate the light (and slightly flirty) scent the Omnia Pink Sapphire has: delicate yet remarkably memorable. Available at SM Department Store.
Kenzo World Eau De Toilette

Kenzo World makes a comeback in eau de toilette—a lighter, fruit-meets-floral scent that can take you (and your mom, of course) from day to night. Available at Rustan’s Department Store.
Jo Malone Tropical Cherimoya Cologne and Cattleya Flower Body Mist

Cult fave cologne brand Jo Malone introduces two limited edition scents: Tropical Cherimoya Cologne and Cattleya Flower Body Mist. Both are refreshingly fruity and floral while being light on the skin—perfect for the summer heat we’re currently having! Available at Jo Malone SM Aura and Megamall.

Delicious Day-Out

Start off mom’s special day with a gastronomic feast. May we suggest getting brunch at the newly opened Sunnies Cafe in UP Town Center. It not only features dishes that will tickle your fancy but is also perfect for getting either coffee or cocktail, whichever your mom might prefer!
