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 come Sunday, 9 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 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. 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, Senreve, Strathberry, 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

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? Help her track her fitness levels with ease. The Xiaomi Smartwatch and the Fitbit fitness trackers are good choices at reasonable prices.

Mum's an Apple user? Buy the Apple Watch

Mum’s a beautyholic

You started out with ‘borrowing’ her lipstick, a tinge of eyeshadow and a coat of mascara. She was the one who introduced you to your first face moisturizer and mask. 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.

Better still, take a look at Lazada's High Five Sale and Shopee's 5.5 Sale for the best deals for mum.
