Fashion Bundle (P1,722) from Tesoros
Make sure that your mom's always safe when heading out of the house by giving her this Fashion Bundle from popular Philippine handicraft store Tesoros. The package includes a fan, an inabel face mask, a sampaguita-themed wallet, and pearl earrings. All items are in black hues, so they'd go with pretty much anything.
Vitamin C Serum (P1,190) from Wildleaf
Whether your mom is a skincare newbie or expert, this serum is sure to be appreciated. It's the product that pretty much made Filipino brand Wildleaf so popular! The multi-purpose serum—brightening, repairing, and protecting—contains a prime combination of ethyl ascorbic acid for collagen production, niacinamide for strengthening skin and fighting acne, hyaluronic acid for plumping and brightening skin, and alpha hydroxy acid (a.k.a. AHA), which gently exfoliates skin while improving its appearance, plus other magical ingredients.
Clio Duster (P1,568) from Dusters of Manila
The duster (or daster) is a home essential for women of all ages, and Dusters of Manila gives it a modern, chic spin with pretty yet comfy dresses that can be worn both in and out of the house! Their Clio dress has an especially summery look with flowers and leaves in vibrant shades of green, blue, red, and yellow against a clean white backdrop—Mom will love it, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself borrowing it (y’know, for science), too.
Portable Espresso Machine (P1,555) from Sweethouse
Moms who love a good brew would appreciate this handy gadget—the Portable Espresso Machine from Sweethouse makes a flavorful cup of joe, no electricity necessary. All she has to do is load it with her favorite espresso grounds, a little hot water, and press the button until she's got a cup full of coffee. It's lightweight and portable, so it's great for traveling too.
16 oz. Coffee Mug in Gloss Rose Quartz (P1,690) from Corkcicle
Sometimes, life gets in the way and you just have no time to sip on your coffee until after it's gotten cold. If that's a perennial problem for Mom, help her say goodbye to lukewarm—or room-temperature cold, the horror—coffee with this cute mug from Corkcicle. It promises to keep coffee or tea hot for up to three hours. Plus, it comes in a really pretty rose quartz color—it’ll be hard not to "borrow" it from her on a daily basis.

It has a lightweight, non-greasy formula featuring anti-aging pili oil and firming elemi oil. Together, these ingredients can help your mom achieve supple and youthful skin.
