Best Bonding Ideas for an Awesome Mother’s Day Celebration

If there’s one thing that moms want most when celebrating Mother’s Day, it’s spending time with the entire family. If you’re out of ideas on how to make bonding time with Mom extra special this coming May 9, let SM City Mindpro give you a few fun and creative suggestions to make your date with the most important woman in your life one for the books.

1. Make it a blessed Mom’s Day. Start the day off with a special mass dedicated for mothers through SM City Mindpro’s Facebook page. It’s a great way to make Mom feel blessed and grateful for all the best things she receives in her life.

2. Enrich her career. It’s never too late for Mom to learn something new! Gift her with the special "SuperMOMpreneurs Power Up Webinar" presented by SM and Facebook Philippines this May 5 at 11:00AM. In celebration of International Small Business Week, the webinar, which will be released on SM Supermalls Facebook Page and #WatchSM YouTube Channel, will surely be appreciated by Mom to help boost her business.

3. Surprise her with all-day access to her favorite places. Moms always love some “me” time, so why not make it a whole-day tour of some of her fave stress-relieving places? On May 5, SM will be holding the 5.5 Mom’s Sale featuring awesome discounts on food, shopping, and pampering!

4. Give her a feast to remember. If she’s not too keen to go out or simply wants to enjoy a low-key celebration, opt for a Mother’s Day feast at home, featuring all her best-loved dishes. From appetizers to desserts, you can have them all conveniently delivered to your home or take out via SM’s Food-to-go and Pickup at the SM Curbside (

5. Make her bloom even more. Nothing makes Mom smile more than a fresh bouquet of beautiful flowers, so a whole garden of blooms would definitely make her grin from ear to ear. At Mom’s Bloom Fair bazaar from April 29 to May 9, she can indulge in fresh and dried flowers and succulents and get a lovely shot of this flourishing paradise for Instagram.

6. Turn her into a TikTok star. Who says Mom can’t enjoy her 15 minutes of fame? Join her for a dance showdown and let the world know just how aweSM she is via TikTok. Just record a dance video of you and Mom and post it on TikTok anytime between April 29 to May 9, tagging @smsupermalls and including the hashtags #MOMentsWithSM and #FamTimewithSM, for a chance to be one of the 3 most viewed videos to win P3,000 SM gift certificates. Don’t forget to include SM Supermalls in your video to make it even more fun and creative!  

7. Cater to her sweet tooth. Baked goodies are always a nice idea to cap off a tiring but fruitful day, so before heading home, drop by Mom’s Bake Fair from April 29 to May 9 to bring home some of her favorite cakes and baked sweets.

Go the extra mile for Mom with these great bonding ideas for Mother’s Day at SM City Mindpro. Like and follow @smcitymindpro on Facebook for more information. (SM PR)
