(Philstar.com) - May 6, 2016 - 3:27am

MANILA, Philippines - When was the last time you said “I love you” to your mom for no specific reason? How about saying “I miss you” because you weren’t able to pay a visit over the weekend? Or a “thank you” coupled with a kiss for giving you that delicious packed lunch for school or office?

It’s the small, daily things that truly count for her.

To honor every mom this Mother’s Day celebration, here are some of the best gifts for the modern mom who deserves no less than to be pampered.

Whether she’s a health and wellness enthusiast, a glam goddess, be sure to find something for your loved one:

1. Selfie-ready made easy

Cut off your mom’s salon spending with the same professionally done hair finish with this straightener. This product makes styling quick and convenient to look best for all those important selfie moments with her. With the straightener’s ultra-fast 60-second heat-up time, you’ll have more quality bonding time with her any day of the week!

2. Dry another day

Who said cute can’t be powerful? Mom would surely love this dryer with its compact and 1200W optimum level power. The Thermo Protect setting provides for optimal airflow and heat combination, which allows quick drying hair with our overheating – maintaining hair’s natural moisture level, for shiny healthy looking hair. If mom has extra sensitive hair, the cool air setting is perfect to blow dry at low temperatures, minimizing damage on this extra hot summer season!

3. Cashless shopping treat

Even the most heroic of moms need help, too. They can manage to leave home with all our kids and their things in tow—but leave their cell phones in the rush. Or they forget to prepare enough cash for a full day of running errands and paying bills.

With Metrobank’s YAZZ Card, a prepaid reloadable VISA card for cashless transactions, there’s one less cause for worry. Load it with cash and use it like a credit card: you can use it in the grocery, the drugstore, malls, restaurants and the bookstore—wherever VISA is accepted. It can also be used to  book family vacations online—whether you’re getting airline tickets or hotel bookings, or theme park passes.

4. Ultimate mommy hacks

As a treat to lovely ladies, Rustan’s will hold a Mother’s Day Fair from April 21 to May 8 at Rustan’s Makati and April 22 to May 8 at Rustan’s Shangri-la.
