Stumped about what to get for Mother’s Day? Here are some fail-proof ideas for the leading lady in your life – yes, even if she seems to already have everything her heart desires.
1. Spa Session At Home
Nothing says mother-daughter bonding time better than a mani-pedi and massage…in the comfort of your own home. Yup, tai tai-style. Sure it’s a bit more expensive, but can you really put a price on your mother’s happiness?
Sole Service sends professional therapists right to your doorstep – towels, equipment and massage oils included – so all you have to do is relax (and foot the bill). Services include manicures (both Classic and Gelish), pedicures and a range of Full Body and Foot Massages.

2. Personal Shopping Experience
This one’s a no brainer – a shopping spree without having to jostle with the weekend crowd? This Mother’s Day, skip the tacky ‘Best Mom’ mug and bring your mom for a personal shopping experience at Robinsons (The Heeren) instead.
The personal shoppers there will curate pieces based on her preferences, which she can try on in the comfort of a luxe lounge (yup, no waiting in line for a changing room). If she finds something that she likes, buy it for her and voilà, best Mother’s Day present ever.

3. Floral Workshop
If your Mom is the creative sort, she just might appreciate an afternoon at a floral workshop. Try one of the classes at florist Shop Wonderland, where you and Mom will learn how to make gorgeous hand-tied bouquets and flower arrangements for any occasion. Shop Wonderland also offers various craft and calligraphy classes, ranging from watercolour to jewellery-making.

4. Musical Greeting Delivery
Want to up the ante on your usual flower delivery? Throw in an element of surprise by getting a musical messenger with your delivery. Gift studio The Olive 3 not only offers traditional bouquets and gift hampers, but also has experienced musicians on hand to deliver your order with a bit more pizazz.
Besides a range of instruments to pick from (guitar, violin and saxophone to name a few), you can also select a song of choice from their repertoire of popular tunes. Perfect if you’re not going to be around to celebrate the day with your mom.
5. Family Photoshoot
Instead of relying on amateur iPhone photos to capture this year’s Mother’s Day festivities, why not make an occasion of it and get a professional family photoshoot done? With seven years of experience in the industry, the photographers at White Room Studio are some of the best for family portraits – so you’ll have truly memorable and frame-worthy photos to display at home.
