Only the best
Mother’s day is right around the corner – and the best mum deserves the best gift (not a bouquet of flowers you hastily bought on the way home from work!). Here are some ideas for you to start planning early.
For the mum who needs a breather

Your mum already has to tolerate you for 364 days in a year – give her some alone time to pamper herself with a spa sesh.
We’re kidding – but spas do make a great gift. Try The Spa at Mandarin Oriental, a stylish, serene haven – their facial and body treatments include the Caviar Brightening Facial, Advanced Repair Facial and Brightening facial, as well as pure pampering Luminous Glow or Mineral Indulgence body treatments.
Or give her a pleasant surprise with something she probably wouldn’t normally try – we’re thinking a nightingale dropping facial (it’s much better than it sounds), or bring the spa to her with these home spa services!
For the mum who already has everything
Nothing beats the sincerity of a hand-made card, no matter how bad your creative skills are.
For the mum with the sweet tooth
Get your mum her fix of all things sweet with Ollella’s dainty choux pastries. Choose from a variety of flavours from their tea-choux box, including apple cinnamon, lemon meringue, tiramisu, and more. Have it delivered to her office for the ultimate surprise – along with the perfect pairing of tea from a.muse projects and some fresh blooms from Cotton and Sage, no less!
For the mum who needs to destress
Who said colouring books were only for kids? If you haven’t heard, colouring books are the new art therapy, even for adults. Here are our top picks of Singapore-themed colouring books (your mum can also discover the beauty of this charming red dot while she’s at it!).
For the mum who cooks the best food
Perhaps you’ll find her cooking a little more often – win-win situation!
