It’s that time of the year again, to show extra appreciation for the superwomen in our lives – our mums. Mother’s Day falls on the 13th of May this year, and we’ve got a list of items and experiences for you to choose from for that (hopefully not) last minute gift. Remember, if you’re a mum, treating yourself is perfectly valid too!
1. Sweet Spa Pampering
Who doesn’t love a spa where you’ll be pampered throughout the experience, and then come out of it looking even more beautiful, glowing, and around 5 – 10 years younger?! Mums out there will love this wonderful experience.
Estheva Spa is offering a Mother’s Day Promotion that lasts until 30th May, 2018, so you’ve got the entire month to surprise her! Find out more about their promotion here!
But if you’re looking to give them a bit more of a personal, homey touch, look no further than The Outcall Spa – it’s a mobile spa that brings the spa to your home, all at your convenience. Experience a professional mani-pedi and/or a home massage in the comfort of your own home! Find out more about their services here.
2. Relaxing Scents
More pampering goodness for mums out there! Just imagine having the home smelling like a fresh garden the moment you step into it – aromatherapy is a thing! She’ll feel more relaxed while she’s home, and a happy mum is a happy family!
Here are some choices for scented candles that you can take a look at:
Jo Malone’s premium variety of candles and colognes will have something for everyone – be it light or musky.
Hush Candle has a cute Mother’s Day special that also includes a beauty workshop on the 12th of May, just in time for her day!
Yankee Candle could be another candle consideration for you! Their lower prices means a wider variety of scents for mum to try out.
3. High Tea or Buffet, Anyone?
Food, it’s the one confirmed thing that brings us together, and what better way to celebrate Mother’s day than to take mum out for a decadently delicious feast? Here’s a selection of only the best and yummiest buffets and high teas for only the best women in your life.
Marriot Café offers a buffet with a spread of oysters, Boston lobsters, roast prime rib or beef, bourbon & honey glazed ham, lobster spicy thermidor style, and much more!
The Marmalade Pantry is a Singaporean bistro that features sandwiches, scones, cupcakes and tea – best of all, they’re located at ION Orchard, so it’s great to rest your legs from all that shopping you did with mum.
For a different ambience, check POLLEN out – they’re a restaurant that’s within the Flower Dome at Gardens By The Bay that serves up a wicked high tea menu for Mother’s Day. They’ve got chicken and mushroom tarts, egg and watercress sandwiches, mandarin choux, macarons, earl grey lemon cake, white chocolate scones, and a choice of 8 teas and 7 coffees!
4. Massages at Any Time
Add on to the spa pampering with massages that mum can get at the snap of her matriarchal fingers, but you don’t have to ketok her shoulders, unless you want to! Leave the hard work to machines using the power of pulse massagers.
Pulse massagers can massage any part of the body through the use of reusable stick-on pads – simply apply them to where you want to massage, select the correct mode on the device, and enjoy! These devices are usually small, portable, and battery-powered, and send pulsed electrical stimulus to the nerves to relieve pain and improve blood circulation.
First up we have a pulse massager from OSIM, the uGoGo Pulse Massager. It’s got all the standard massage areas and functions, plus it allows you to synchronise your music to the massage you’re getting!
For something simpler to use but still gets the job done, look no further than Omron’s Electronic Pulse Massager HV-F021. It’s got only a few buttons to press and will prove to be much easier for less tech savvy mums to use! Plus it’s also more budget friendly than OSIM.
