All parents are important, but mothers hold a very special place in our hearts. If we’re going to be real about it, it’s safe to say that a lot of what they do goes unrecognized or gets forgotten. They’re there from our very first days, carrying us when we need them the most.
While a gift on Mother’s Day isn’t the be all and end all of our love, it’s an important gesture that we can visibly make to improve her quality of life.
With that in mind, let’s take a look at some gifts that she will definitely love.
Every woman loves a good piece of jewellery to accessorise with when she goes out, whether it’s for a short trip nearby or a night out. It doesn’t need to cost a bomb, and it can still be pretty!
Skip the overpriced diamond earrings and get beautiful, handmade pieces like these with gemstones like emerald, aquamarine and moonstones for a fraction of the cost.

It can be stressful to be juggling work and home life. She’s been in the office during the day and then taking care of you at night, so she definitely needs to relax in the evening. If mum likes a good tipple to unwind, then take the time out to get her a nice bottle of wine.
One of the best ways to do this to get a wine subscription for her. These guys source, then import different French wines every month, and you can even choose if you want more white or red in your delivery every month!
3. Wine Chillers
Since you’ll be getting good wines for her, you might as well make sure she enjoys that glass of wine in its best condition. Wine Chillers help to keep wines at optimal storage temperatures, staving off changes in flavour and texture, especially important in Singapore’s heat and humidity. Wine chillers can be simple and compact or large and feature-filled.
Figure out how big of a wine drinker she is, and get her one!
4. A Staycation
Everyone loves a good staycation. It’s a good break from the hustle and bustle of daily life, and for a few days, you don’t need to do anything you don’t want to do. Treat her to a stay at one of Sentosa’s top hotels or let her enjoy the splendour of the city
Either way, it’s a sure-fire way to make her happy!
5. Massage Chair
Massage chairs are fantastic for loosening those knotted muscles after a long day at work. If you let it do its work, a massage chair can help improve blood flow, loosen sore muscles, reduce stress, and alleviate pain.
Massage chairs now come with bells and whistles like app-based remote controls, integrated foot massagers and even surround sound music.
Get one for her, and you’ll definitely see her in a more relaxed state.
6. A Smart Companion
If you have a mum, then you know that she’s always asking you for the answer to some odd, random question or to look up something. Now, she can have her question answered whether you’re there or not with a Smart Home Device.
Both Google Home and Amazon Echo will answer her questions, play music, and even help her call you without having to pick up her phone.
7. eReaders and eBooks
Mum needs a new way to get the information she needs. Books take up space and are more expensive to purchase than their digital counterparts. The Amazon Kindle Oasis is perfect for this purpose
It is a compact 7-inch, waterproof device that has access to unlimited books once it is connected to your Amazon Prime account. Your mum will never run out of books to read!
8. Beautiful Wearable Tech
There are plenty of wearable technology options available, but very few elegant options. Many of them look blocky, are too large or not very user-friendly. Fortunately, some great fashion brands have taken the time to design some beautiful smartwatches.
Kate Spade’s Scallop and Skagen’s Falster 2 are just some of the options that will add a classy touch of tech to your mom’s day.
While this isn’t a definitive list, we know that these are the gifts that will help make mum’s life just a little easier. If you’re still struggling to find something for her just think about items that can solve the pain points in her life.
That way, you’ll narrow the field and spend less time looking for things that she won’t enjoy anyway. Remember, it’s the thought that counts!
