A Hyperspecific Guide to Choosing the Perfect Gift for Every Type of Mom

“What should I get Mom for Mother’s Day?”

You asked yourself this question last year and the years before that. Now you find yourself asking the same thing as if it were the first time you were celebrating Mother’s Day.


We know how difficult it is to decide on the perfect gift for someone who’d probably just scold you if you bought them something a bit pricey (“You should've just saved your money instead of buying this!”) or something pretty but not practical (“Where would I even use this?”). 

But before you sigh in defeat, how about you check our guide first? We’ve compiled the best gifts that specifically cater to every type of mom out there. So if you think your mom is on this list, then don’t hesitate to click on that “Add to Cart” button in the SM Malls Online app ASAP.

The Career-driven Single Mom

She takes pride in her work. Whenever she isn’t taking care of her kids, you can find her in the office—working on things that probably aren't even due until next month. She’s so focused on balancing motherhood and career that she barely has time to find a partner, much less follow a self-care routine. Get her The Body Shop’s Drops of Youth™ Concentrate, which can help rejuvenate the skin and protect it from environmental aggressors. Enjoy a 15% discount—from P1,995 to P1,695.75—when you purchase via the SM Malls Online app.

The Mom Whose Motto in Life Is: "Stay Fit to Stay Fab"

This mom often wakes up before sunrise for a jog or an early workout sesh at the gym. She makes sure to keep herself in shape. She loves feeling young, so giving her something that can help her achieve her fitness goals would be ideal—like the Foldy Paris Folding Bike from Chris Sports. Order one now via the SM Malls Online app to save P7,259.34!

The Fashion-forward Mom 

She stays in the loop with the latest fashion trends and has a knack for building the perfect wardrobe. You’d spot her wearing a pair of shoes or a piece of clothing that was released just yesterday. When choosing gifts for her, consider the Women’s 312 Shaping Slim Fit Jeans from Levi’s. It’s available in SM Malls Online for only P2,159.20—20% off its original price.

The Stay-at-home Mom

She spends most of her days keeping the house in order, so she’d definitely appreciate a home device that keeps indoor air clean and free of contaminants. Get a 50% discount when you buy Surplus Shop’s Fresh Air Revitalizer and Purifier Color Combination via the SM Malls Online app. This device has a color-changing LED light and coverage of up to 30 square meters.

The Mom with a Monthly “Cover the Gray” Agenda

Some moms get satisfaction by seeing their gray hair get disguised. And if your mom is one of them, why not surprise her with a year’s supply of at-home hair dye? Purchase the Bigen Cream Hair Color in Natural Brown at Watsons! Check out via the SM Malls Online app to score 10% off—from P399 to P359.

The Mom Who Loves Walking

She’s the kind of mom who prefers walking over driving or taking public transportation. But whether it’s because she is committed to reducing her carbon footprint or just wants to avoid heavy traffic, a pair of comfy sandals would be the best thing to give her this Mother’s Day. Cop Birkenstock’s Arizona Birko-Flor in white via the SM Malls Online app to save P200 off your purchase!

Want an extra Mother’s Day treat? Use the promo code “SUPERPAYDAY” upon checkout to get P150 off on a minimum purchase of P400. This is valid for one-time use only from April 28 to May 1, 2022.
