Humming’s Mother’s Day Guardian’s Shawl Gift set includes a mini carnation bouquet and a two-tone shawl in mama’s preferred shades (Grey/Pink or Navy/Off-White).

Studies show that sending a tangible greeting card in what is a predominately digital world positively impacts the well-being of both the recipient and the sender. There’s nothing like opening an envelope and receiving a greeting card from someone you love! Simply Say is Singapore’s only personalised greeting card service where you can create your own card or select from a range of designs, so they know a thing or two about choosing the perfect card for Mother’s Day. Their brand new collection of Mother’s Day cards come in traditional, funny and quirky designs, available in the standard A5 size (from $7.49) or in a new A4 option (from $14.99). We love that the pages can be customised with a thoughtful message with the card sent directly to the recipient, or left blank for you to leave a hand-written. Did we mention they’re also environmentally responsible as their cards are 100% recyclable and are only printed to order?

If you’ve seen this beautiful salon location all over Instagram lately, we’re telling you it’s the real deal! The Salon by VIVA is a stunning salon and studio space overlooking Keppel Bay, and it’s pretty much on its own little island (you’ll have to drive over a bridge to get there!) so you’ll feel instantly transported into holiday mode. The Keppel Bay wellness destination is complete with its own pilates studio, hair salon and nail salon, so you can get a workout in and get treated to some much-needed pampering with a mani-pedi or blowout afterwards. Suitable Mother’s Day gift options in our opinion are the Mum & Daughter Pampering Session (from $189 and includes classic manicures, pedicures and hair wash and blow-dry for mum and daughter), the Ultimate Girls Day Out Experience (for 5 ladies at $199/person, includes manicures, pedicures and hair wash and blow-dry, champagne and a grazing platter), or simply a Wash & Blow Package or Mani & Pedi package so you can keep going back over and over!
The Sassy Mama team got to check The Salon by VIVA for ourselves and we had an amazing time – check out our Instagram story highlights for more!

Facials or Massages
What better Mother’s Day gift to get a busy mama than the gift of great skincare or a relaxing massage? Pick from our list of the best facial spots in town, or get a masseuse to come to her!

Book a Mother’s day High Tea
If mama hasn’t yet tried a high tea experience, it couldn’t be a better time to book her one! We’ve rounded up all our favourite high tea spots across the island, from high tea with amazing views to traditional, English-style high teas, to high teas with a cocktail kick, those that highlight local faves, vegetarian and gluten-free afternoon tea options, and even some dedicated kids’ high teas.

Don’t you just love getting a fresh batch of photos taken with the family? Even better when they’re taken by a professional! One of our favourite family photographers is Irina Nilsson (just check out our That Mama series for her gorgeous pics).
Meanwhile Evie Grace Photography is putting on Mini Motherhood Shoot Packages ($300) on 14 and 15 May for short and sweet 20 minute sessions at her boho-chic styled studio. Mama and photographer Emily Newell behind this boutique, lifestyle portrait studio has a knack for capturing that sweet mama-child bond so book asap!
This Mother’s Day why not book an experience as a Mother’s Day gift? Treat mama to a day out at sea with a yacht booking! Enjoy sunsets and star-lit dinners on an evening cruise or try a great variety of water sports with minimal hassle. We’ve got a great list of yacht charter options in Singapore here (some priced as low as $599!).
Get some Personalised Jewellery
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. Other brands we love are SOAMI, Tiffany & Co and Envet (funky earrings sporting the kids’ names, anyone?)!
No matter the gift this Mother’s Day, remember to give that amazing leading lady in your life a big hug and say I love you – sometimes something homemade (by the kids) or heartfelt (like a whole afternoon off to have some me-time) is the best Mother’s Day Gift of all (but also throw in the flowers).
