Here’s a timely reminder that Mother’s Day 2023 is right around the corner (14 May, Sunday, to be exact). What better way to celebrate Mum and/or the maternal figure in your life than with a thoughtful gift (or two)?
But if you don’t want to find yourself queueing for an overpriced flower bouquet at the very last minute, I’ve got you covered.
From stunning demi-fine jewellery to skin and bath products that’ll make for fine pampering sessions, here are some quick and fuss-free gift ideas for those who’ve yet to start shoppin’ around.
1. Comfy sleepwear
Good sleep is perhaps one of the hardest things to come by, but sustainable sleepwear brand Rawbought is here to change that. So, why not give the gift of buttery-soft comfort in the form of four specially curated gift sets showcasing pyjamas and sleep essentials from the brand’s signature Je Dor collection?
The Je Dors Sleepshirt Gift Set (S$99, U.P. $119.80) comprises a set of the Je Dors Sleepshirt Pyjamas in seven soothing shades and sizes (from XS to XXXL); a Modal Eyemask, and a Modal Headband — it’s ideal for those who prefer loose and breathable sleepwear (especially in our hot climate).
Each set, which can be purchased online, is also beautifully wrapped in Rawbought’s signature gift box, inclusive of a complimentary handwritten note for that extra special touch!
2. A smoother sound experience
Any music-loving mother out there needs to get their hands on, or better, be gifted the Jabra Elite 5 (U.P. S$231) this Mother’s Day 2023. With its top-notch noise-cancelling properties, Bluetooth® Multipoint connectivity, and seven-hour battery life, just to name a few, this is one pair of wireless earbuds that’ll tune out all the ruckus and help Mum (finally) relax.
But if your momma’s a multitasker, the Jabra Elite 4 (U.P. S$160) is a slightly more affordable alternative that provides the same superb sound experience for work, relaxation, or education. There’s even a bonus feature that’ll let Mum take crystal-clear calls without having to raise her voice — so you won’t have to suffer her wrath.
Both the Elite 5 and Elite 4 are currently available at a promotional price of S$188 and S$138 respectively from now till 31 May 2023 (Mother’s Day celebrations for an entire month, perhaps?) at selected retailers, and Jabra’s official stores on Lazada and Shopee.
3. Hydrating skincare
Popular Korean beauty brand Banila Co may be best known for its cult-favourite cleansing balm, but did you know that they also boast an impressive hydrating skincare line?
For just S$90, the pretty-in-pink Dear Hydration for Dear Mom Gift Set (U.P. S$183) equips both skincare junkies and newbies with four essential products: an essence, toner, moisturiser, and eye cream.
Notable mention goes out to the water-based Dear Hydration Skin Softening Toner (U.P. S$34.90) and the fast-absorbing Dear Hydration Water Barrier Cream (U.P. S$49.90), that’ll leave Mum’s skin feeling rejuvenated and moisturised in no time at all.
4. Exquisite pearl jewellery
In the words of the late American actress and Princess of Monaco Grace Kelly, “the pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens”. If you’d like to gift Mum a well-deserved set of pearls, look no further than the folks that first brought permanent jewellery to Singapore, Curious Creatures.
In fact, why not make it a set (or have a matchy-matchy mother-daughter moment) by enjoying 20% off every two pieces of pearl demi-fine jewellery from now till 14 May 2023?
For instance, the Quentin Ear Jackets (U.P. S$159) and Quinn Ear Studs (U.P. S$69) both feature stunning Keshi pearls — no two pearls look the same, due to their organic nature, so you know each piece is one of a kind!
The promotion is applicable for the following products, all of which can be purchased online and in-store at Kreta Ayer Road and Great World:
- Quincy Earrings
- Quincy Bracelet
- Quinn Ear Studs
- Quinn Ring
- Quentin Ear Jackets
- Quentin Necklace
- Naya Necklace
- Nyssa Ear Studs
- Nyssa Necklace
- Numi Ear Studs
- Numi Necklace
- Nadine Hoops
- Diane Ear Threader
5. Magical Disney-themed gifts
There’s something for every Disney-loving Mum out there at shopDisney Asia, from apparel and accessories to homeware, all inspired by timeless Disney stories.
Although you can never go wrong with flowers on Mother’s Day, why not take it up a notch by gifting Mum a cuddly, uber-adorable plush bouquet that’ll last all year round? The Winnie the Pooh Plush Bouquet (S$47.90), for instance, has a faint scent of honey and a honey jar pattern — there’s no better way to introduce the magic of the Hundred Acre Woods (and your love for Mum) into the home!
As for fashionistas on the go, the Minnie Mouse Retro Polka Dot Tote Bag (S$85.90) comes with a detachable red purse that’s bright, bold, and handy to have. Throw in a matching Minnie Mouse Retro Polka Dot Card Case (S$35.90) that’s sure to impress, whether Mum’s at work or out and about.
6. A spa day at home
A surefire way to show your appreciation for all the love and care Mum has showered on you is to let her enjoy some well-deserved me-time.
Thanks to Lynk Artisan Fragrances, you can gift Mum the ultimate pampering experience in the form of a self-care spa day at home. Exclusive to the Mother’s Day 2023 collection is the Bath Pamper Gift Set (S$98), comprising a trio of rejuvenating bath salts, coffee body scrub, and body butter, all of which will leave the skin feeling supple, hydrated, and thoroughly refreshed.
7. Aromatherapy for the home
Is Mum too busy to take a vacation or even have a staycation? Thanks to the wonders of aromatherapy, you might just be able to bring the vacay a little closer to home!
Let Mum transform and refresh her space with the Hotel Series Home Bundle Gift Set (U.P. S$239.80) from Shiora Home Fragrances for just S$79.90, a set of four reed diffusers in luxurious scents inspired by iconic world-class hotels.
Keep it fresh with notes of rose, bergamot, and lavender, courtesy of the Shangri-La, or envelop the senses with the sweet, citrusy, and uplifting scent of the Venetian. Regardless of what you choose, these sensational scents are bound to transport Mum into the plush comfort of a swanky five-star hotel room.
