What moms really want for Mother's Day

Motherhood is a tough 24-hour job, no pay, no days-off, most often unappreciated and yet resigning is impossible.
This Mother’s day, I have decided to talk asked 100 Moms to ask them of what they wish to receive on this special day, to at least give back on all the hard work they have done for the family. And here are the Top 10 responses.

1. 30-minute shower: With 38.5°C temperature in the Philippines right now, wouldn’t you want to run in the shower and take a long, relaxing bathe? The scientists believe that when people feel isolated they take hot showers as a form of self-therapy, or self-soothing.

2. Love letter – In this world full of social media – where it is very convenient to greet your Mothers through posts, these Moms said they would still feel your love through the old school, heartfelt love letters.

3. Chocolates – Eating certain types of chocolate in small amounts can be good for you. The cocoa in chocolate contains antioxidants, which are considered “heart healthy”. Because chocolate is also high in calories and fat, it is only a good snack if you have it in small portions. They say you can say “I love you” best with a box of chocolate.

4. Flowers - Studies show that women who have flowers in their rooms are less anxious. The sweet fragrance of the flowers will change a mother’s mood and she will definitely feel better.

5. Shoes and dress – All women are “Imeldific” in nature. I personally love bags and dresses. This will be a perfect Mother’s day gift given you know your Mom’s size.

6. Going to the beach – Summer is on! Nothing beats a perfect relaxation for Mother’s day than a salt air which combats depression and mood disorder. According to research, the sound of the waves changes the wave patterns in our brain comforting us into a deeply relaxing state.

7. ME time (Spa, Massage, Salon) – If your Mom is vain or kikay, then a trip to the best salon or massage parlor will be a perfect gift for her. Have her hair colored, nails done and then end the day with a soothing massage.

8. Lunch/Dinner with family – Money should not be an issue in giving back Mom’s constant effort to make us feel loved. A home-cooked lunch or dinner will be highly appreciated by her. Google some fancy table set-up and surprise your Mom with an exceptional lunch/dinner date.

9. Gift Certificates they can use for Groceries – This is a best gift if your Mother is a practical one. A lot of department stores offer Gift Certificates to which she can use for various purchase.

10. Staycation with family - Not everyone can afford a vacation to a tropical paradise or an exciting destination. For many of us, staycation are what we can afford -- but it turns out they may be exactly what we need. Staycation is a great way to save money, enjoy your time off from work, and avoid the unavoidable stress that goes along with travel. There were a lot of booking applications available these days that offers affordable rates.

Mother has postponed many of her needs and desires in favor of the needs of her children. As a consequence of this sacrifice, she has inculcated sense of character and culture into her children. We can never compensate for the unconditional love and support of our mother, but all we can do is reciprocate our undying love by giving something as distinctive as she is.

Kung buhay lang ang Nanay ko momsh, isa sa mga ideas dito treat ko talaga sya. Sobrang nakimiss ko sya araw2. Nalulungkot ako dahil di nya ito naranasan nung buhay pa sya. Naiiyak tuloy ako. Hehe
Ang buhay nanay ay nakakapagod pero fulfilling. Kapag makikita mong masaya ang mga anak mo at ang buong pamilya. Hindi ko
Ipagpapalit ang aking role as a nanay.

I want for my mother yung makapag relax man lang sya, wala na kasi sya time for herself dahil sa sobrng busy nya sa pananahi, pag aasikado at pag aalaga ng mga apo at age of 65 kumakayod pa rin sya para may pambili ng pagkain araw araw at sa iba pang gastusin at nangangailangn para sa mga apo.

Sa akin ok na ko sa flowers mamsh ., ang importante naman maalala natin sila sa araw ng mga nanay ., ang mga nanay natin hindi naman importante sa kanila yung marangyang regalo mabati at mayakap mo lang sila masaya na sila dahil tayong mga anak minsan ndi na natin napaparamdam sa kanila kung gaano sila kahalaga at kung gaano natin sila kamahal ., the best gift talaga para sa kanila ay yung masabi mo sa kanila araw2x na Mama Mahal na Mahal po kita .. ❤️🥰
