There are only a few days left for Mother’s Day, which falls on May 14 this year. It’s when we celebrate mums – and the love and support they’ve given us. We want to make them feel extra special on their day, but we hear you: it’s not that easy.
When it comes to Mother’s Day gifts, you want something sentimental, practical and, of course, beautiful. Finding the perfect gift that checks off these three boxes is a real challenge, so allow us to help you. Here’s presenting the perfect gifts for Mother’s Day in Singapore – be it for your mum, wife, aunt, grandmother, or even yourself!
Treat Mum to a pampering facial this year at none other than SW1 Spa. Book the Hepburn Hydrafacial, an age-defying, complexion-rejuvenating facial that will make her feel like a movie star!
This rejuvenating facial cleverly purifies the skin using patented Hydrafacial MD technology to get rid of dead skin cells and ensure maximum absorption of anti-ageing ingredients. The Skin is infused and lifted with Epicuren enzymatic peels, bursting with vitamin C and potent antioxidants. Finally, a cold mist of skin tonic solution is applied for pore minimization and to leave the skin porcelain-like. Did we say how much we enjoy the spa-like setting at this clinic?
Nothing beats waking up to flowers on Mother’s Day. But this year, up the ante and gift Mum some dried flowers! These beautiful blooms last longer, so she can display and enjoy them more. And unlike fresh flowers, they don’t need constant watering and upkeep, so less work for her! Just put it in one of her favourite vases, so she’ll revel in the blissful beauty of the bouquet.
Editor’s Tip: Need some recommendations? We highly suggest Windflower Florist’s Everlasting Jar Pink arrangement! This features delicate pink roses with a rustic mix of dried blooms and leaves, beautifully arranged in a glass jar. You can also add a note to make it more personal – she will be so touched!
Does Mum love a timeless scent that she can wear to any occasion and pair with any outfit? Then, a bottle of Mon Guerlain Eau de Parfum won’t disappoint! This perfume has a cosy and warm scent that feels just like her warm embrace. It’s characterised by a woody, oriental, and creamy mix of lavender, bergamot, jasmine, sandalwood, and vanilla. Overall, it’s a sophisticated fragrance that she’ll surely keep reaching for all the time!
Editor’s Tip: While at it, why not grab a bottle for yourself too? So, whenever you miss her, you can spray it on, and it’ll feel like a hug from your Mum.
These artisanal bonbons from The Dark Gallery are perfect for satisfying Mum’s sweet tooth. The Dark Gallery specialises in dark chocolates, which are the greatest and healthiest sort of chocolate! They’re high in antioxidant flavonoids and can also help prevent heart disease. We’re especially drooling over these artisanal bonbons made of 66% dark chocolate shells. They also have creative flavours like Toasted Almond, Earl Grey Peppermint, Matcha Strawberry, Nut Praline, and Toffee Sea Salt! These chocolates are handmade, artisanal, single-origin chocolates, all created directly on-site in The Dark Gallery kitchen.
If she loves a bit of sparkle in her everyday looks, then RISIS has got you covered for mum’s gift! Choose from their vast catalogue of jewellery, from bangles, bracelets, necklaces, and earrings.
Editor’s Tip: What we love most about RISIS are its unique nature-inspired designs and high-quality 24K Swiss gold! Their most popular pieces are those designed with Singaporean-inspired flowers, which give a sense of local flavour.
