Find her a fabulous gift
Momma knows best, and momma gets the best – especially when it comes to her most important day of the year (well besides her birthday, of course). But what do you give to the woman who’s sacrificed so much for you? Your love is enough, we reckon; but if you feel like spoiling her, a gorgeous gift never goes astray…
Play your petals right, and you can make Mother’s Day a truly rosy affair. From rustic, boho-chic arrangements to customised botanical bounties, we’ve got you covered with our list of best florists in Singapore for a dose of real flower power. For a real treat, pamper mum with the razzle dazzle of jewellery. We did the legwork, and sourced the best jewellery stores in Singapore. Got a mum with a serious knack for style? Pick up sleek, minimalist-style necklaces or cuffs, or bold statement earrings. Is she more into bohemian vibes? Go with a birthstone necklace to celebrate both her as a mum and as a woman. Or for a more practical gift, get her a bag that reminds her of you. Pick up a stylish, roomy bag to match all her outfits, or get her a fabulous clutch bag for her date nights with Dad.
Spoil her with an incredible feast
Now that you’ve picked out the perfect Mother’s Day gift, surprise her with it over a luxe meal. Because we just love making things easy for you, we’ve sussed out some of the best dining offers for Mum’s special day. Tuck into a Peranakan Sunday lunch buffet, feast on freshly shucked oysters and Champagne at a free-flow brunch or chow down on a classic Chinese meal.
Keep it fancy with afternoon tea
This Mother’s Day, go big or go home – if you’re going to do afternoon tea, do it well in an iconic spot. For a dose of mid-day splendour, hit up Clifford Pier’s The Landing Point, Brasserie Les Saveurs at St Regis or National Kitchen by Violet Oon. Can’t squeeze in a weekend tea? Not to worry. Take a day off indulge in a weekday high tea together.
Or relax over a casual brunch
We’re spoiled for choice when it comes to brunching in Singapore. You could splash out on an afternoon of free-flow Champagne, but if she loves nothing more than a chilled-out brunch, settle in for coffee and eggs benny at hip hoods like Tiong Bahru and Duxton Hill or the quaint Chip Bee Gardens. You don’t even have to venture far. Take your pick from one of these many stellar cafes in your neighbourhood which offer great coffee brews and breakfasts.
Bring on the activities
Cook up a storm
You may pale in comparison when it comes to the kitchen. Let her teach you a thing or two by planning and cooking up a family feast together at home. Need an expert hand? Pick up real skills from these cooking classes you and Mum can do together.
Get creative at a workshop
If the two of you are always pottering away at handicrafts, it’s time to take those skills up a notch at a creative workshop. Try your hand at making your own leather pouch, paper blooms or a beaded and tasselled necklace.
Have an outdoorsy day out
For mums with an adventurous streak, there’s nothing better she’d enjoy more than a trek on one of Singapore’s beautiful walking trails. Want a real adventure? Hit the waters of Pulau Ubin to kayak through the mangrove trails or conquer the steep slopes on a mountain bike if mum is brave enough. Alternatively, take it easy by exploring the city on a bicycle, and stop for a picnic at these gorgeous parks.
Check into a spa
Nothing says pampering like a day at the spa. Treat her to a head-to-toe pampering sesh with our bliss list of the best spas in Singapore, offering the finest facials, mind-melting massages and therapeutic treatments. Alternatively, you could accompany her for a fab blow out or a mani-pedi sesh. This spa-salon hybrid worked wonders for us.
Or a hotel for a swish staycay
Pack an overnight bag, and live it up in your very own plush abode at these swanky boutique hotels or five-star hotels a la crazy rich Asians style in Singapore. In between spa treatments and fancy dining, it’s the perfect way to make your weekend feel like a real holiday.
