Whether Mother’s Day gifting is a new concept introduced by merchants or not, these trying times call for us to indulge in some pampering treats, for ourselves and our loved ones. There is no stopping you from showing your appreciation to the women you love on Mother’s Day this Sunday, 8 May. Here are some ideas for expressing your love to the women who gave life to you and your husband.
If mum’s a die-hard romantic
There’s something exciting about receiving fresh flowers. It makes the recipient feel loved. Go ahead and shower your mum and mother-in-law with fresh flowers from FlowerAdvisor, Ferns n Petals, NoelGifts, and FarEastFlora. Look out for their 5.5 sales happening right now.
Mum's a pragmatic
She’s the one who gave you your first jewellery and handbag. Now that you are working, it’s time to return the favour and shower your mum with love. Try top favs from Chow Sang Sang, Lee Hwa Jewellery, SK Jewellery, Risis, Goldheart or Puregold.
When it comes to accessories, no one does it better than Swarovski. These stunning jewellery are versatile for day-to-night wear and suitable for all occasions.
Which lady can resist beautiful arm candies? Charles & Keith, Strathberry, Mirta, Kate Spade and Michael Kors are your best bets for mid-priced go-to's. You will find authentic branded leather goods, handbags, accessories and more, at slashed prices. Talk about great craftsmanship without burning a hole in your pocket. Mummy will approve.
Mum’s a health fanatic
She has slaved in the kitchen since you were a little girl. Give her the gift of health with these selections. Fortify her health with Ensure Milk. Build her bone health or help her cope with menopause supplements from iHerb. Look to the myriad of reviews to find the right supplements for your mum. New to iHerb?
Does mum love a cuppa every afternoon? Bring a smile to her face with these gorgeous tea sets from T2. Free delivery for orders above S$40.
And if she insists on doing the weekly marketing during COVID-19 times, get her these oh-so-pretty handmade face masks from Etsy so she can look good and stay safe while out and about. Better yet, get her a foldable bike to make her grocery runs more convenient.
Is she leading an active lifestyle? Send her for yoga classes at TFX, a fitness chain part of the True Group. This May, mothers of all ages gym for free at any TFX club – at Funan, Millenia Walk or Pacific Plaza. All mothers, including non-members and mothers of existing members, are eligible for a 14-day pass to access the club’s facilities and classes. Existing TFX members may register their mothers for the 14-day pass online here. Separately, TFX Pacific Plaza added two new beginner-friendly programmes to its extensive line-up of yoga and hot yoga courses – Yoga for Seniors and Chair Yoga.
Mum’s a beautyholic
You started out with ‘borrowing’ her lipstick, a tinge of eyeshadow, a coat of mascara and a spritz of her perfume. She was also the one who introduced you to your first face moisturizer and mask. Why not surprise her with an express facial at Kskin? Available at 15 outlets across Singapore, the best thing about Kskin Facial is their no package, no appointment, no hard sales policy.
Or let her try creating her own scent at the newly opened Scentopia in Sentosa.
Try these together with mum and work in a beauty bonding sess this Mother's Day!
Now that you are all grown up and Internet-savvy, get her these Mother's Day beauty sets from Lookfantastic, which guarantees good discounts and 100% authentic products. Supercharge her skincare routine with a super serum from Olay. Or, get her Mother's Day special deals or an item or two to prevent crepy skin from developing around her neck and decollete areas from beauty haven Sephora.
Mum's a curious cat & loves travel
She saved hard to bring you on your first overseas trip so that you can complete your holiday vacation assignment. Her legs are not quite what they used to be. Try a staycation, a short trip to neighbouring countries or even a cruise where she doesn't need to walk too much. Don't forget the all-important travel insurance when overseas.
