We all know that mamas do the bulk of the holiday shopping for the fam. Whether it’s sorting out Christmas dinner (either making reservations at restaurants or cooking up the turkey), sourcing gifts for everyone from kids to dads, mamas are busier than Santa’s elves at this time of year.
In other words, you definitely deserve some fab gifts, mama! So here it is, our round-up of Christmas gifts for her that offer something for every interest, from fitness subscriptions to lust-worthy soy candles and more we bring you gift ideas so you can shop for that mama friend — or even for yourself. Or you may want to tactfully send this Christmas gift guide for mamas to your other half to check out!

If you know a mama who’s itching for some sun, sand and sea, nudge them towards a seaside ‘vacation’ (thank goodness for Sentosa’s beach clubs!) and gift them a fabulous printed beach towel from Beasties! The brand aims to raise awareness and funds for endangered wildlife with their range of extra large organic cotton certified beach towels in the cutest marine animal prints. For their debut collection, Beasties hopes to shed light on the threats sharks, manta rays and sea turtles face. 10% of their sales will go to wildlife conservation, and for this collection their charity partner is WildAid, which works with governments and partners to protect fragile marine reserves from illegal fishing and shark finning.
Sephora won’t let you down. There is bound to be something in this glittering store that every gal will need, from lipstick by Charlotte Tilbury, to Sunday Riley products (we have it on authority that their Luna Oil and Good Genes are not to be missed), Drunk Elephant moisturizers, Laura Mercier products – it’s a little treasure trove of goodies and the key is a gift card from Sephora in denominations from as little as $20 up to (the more useful) $100.
‘Prebiotic’ is the latest beauty buzzword! One of our favourite skincare brands, TWO L(I)PS has created a line of prebiotic-infused skincare formulated between pH 4 – 6, the optimal pH level of skin on most of our face and body. Do away with over-cleansing and treat yourself to products that give love to the skin’s barrier instead. We love how yummy every product smells, plus did we mention they’re suitable for use on the face, body and vulva? Bye bye multiple products, hello all-in-one skincare and avoid using more single use plastic!
There’s so much to love about the Kindle, and now Amazon’s come out with the thinnest, lightest Kindle Paperwhite yet that makes for the perfect Christmas gift! It comes complete with a glare-free display that reads like real paper even in bright sunlight, is waterproof (worry-free poolside reading, hello!), and is available in 8GB or 32GB to hold more magazines, comics or audiobooks.
We love supporting homegrown brands as much as possible, which is why we can’t get enough of the candle brands that can be found on Boutique Fairs Singapore’s new e-store! Many of them are made with 100% natural hand poured soy wax, making them longer lasting and cleaner-burning than paraffin wax (so no hazy toxins in the air when they’re burning thank you very much!). Our top picks are from Artisan of Sense, Commonfolk Collective and Riau Candle Co.
Sunglasses are an absolute must-have, so why not gift your loved one a pair of shades? We’re loving homegrown brand Rocket Eyewear Company’s range of sunglasses in the iconic and uber-flattering P3 shape – a classic, round frame worn by 1950s movie stars like Grace Kelly, Gregory Peck and James Dean. If you’ve got a trendy friend in mind, consider a pair of sunnies from DEZI, founded by YouTube makeup mogul (and mama-to-be!) Desi Perkins. Prices are pretty easy on the pocket but shipping may be on the high side unless you buy a few pairs in one order. Keep up with them on Instagram for news on the next restock.
Personalised jewellery is definitely having a moment right now, and we love that they’re particularly great for gifting! Local brand Del Rio Jewels has some gorgeous sustainably made mama-themed bracelets and necklaces, or you can even opt to customize a ring in your gift receiver’s initials. Other brands we love are SOAMI, Tiffany & Co, Envet (funky earrings sporting the kids’ names, anyone?), and special mention to By Invite Only who carries a range of mother-daughter bracelets that will surely melt your heart!
Activewear & Fitness Gear
You can’t go wrong with some pretty, functional activewear for a fit mama! We’re lusting after the swoon-worthy styles by Vivre Activewear, Lorna Jane and Outfyt. Some stunning printed yoga mats have caught our eyes too – particularly the ones by Sugarmat and new local label baaba.co (supersized, ultra-light mats that also double as playmats for kids!).
Fitness Class Subscription
If your other half is into fitness, or if they would like to take more time for themselves, we bet a fitness package would be appreciated! There’s something for every interest out there, from pole dancing to F45 to bungee! Check out our roundup of unique fitness classes or personal trainer sessions for more inspo!
Facials or Massages
What better gift to get a busy mama than the gift of rest and relaxation? Pick from our list of the best facial spots in town, or get a masseuse to come to her! Try a mobile spa service – we’re fans of SoleHouse and Aleyda.
