You can also check out our roundup of fave facials in Singapore and best onsens! Looking for a spa with a difference?

You can even surprise mama at home with a mobile beauty service! Think mani-pedis, massages and even hairstyling services without even having to leave the house. Check out our guide for a full list of mobile beauty services that come to you.

7. Kobo or Kindle: Practical Mother’s Day Gift
Does mum like to read or would she like to if she could only find the books she wanted easily? Why not gift her an ereader as a Mother’s Day gift? The two big brands are Amazon’s Kindle and Rakuten’s Kobo tablet. Kobo provides the larger range as compared to Kindle and we do love how you can link up your Kobo to the OverDrive app that lets you borrow and download eBooks/audiobooks from the Singapore library. You can find ereaders easily on Amazon.sg and the nifty Kobo Nia (we can vouch for this as an awesome gift for partners and even older kids) costs as little as $130.
8. Personalised Jewellery Mother’s Day Gift
Personalised jewellery is definitely having a moment right now, and we love that they’re particularly great for gifting! Monica Vinader is a hot favourite and there’s local brand Del Rio Jewels which has gorgeous sustainably made mama-themed bracelets and necklaces. Other brands we love are By Invite Only, SOAMI and Tiffany & Co.
9. Book a Photography Session as a Mother’s Day Gift
Mums are often the ones taking the pics so why not gift mum a family photo session by a professional! Whether it’s a maternity shoot or family shoot so she can look back on photos of that sweet mama-child bond. Scroll through our Guide to Family Photographers! If you have photos but haven’t gotten around to printing them yet – we also love the idea of putting together a photobook with messages – takes time but is so worth it!
10. Mother’s Day Gift: Bake With Bisou Heart Cookies
New from Bake with Bisou this Mother’s Day are the Ready-To-Eat Vanilla Snap Heart cookies. These heart-shaped cookies are so pretty- beautifully decorated and individually hand-piped by Bake with Bisou’s head baker – and just as delicious. Gifting a box of these is the perfect way to tell mum how much you love her! Pre-order them now in time for Mother’s Day. Cookies are freshly-baked, then hand-decorated as close to delivery as possible so that you can enjoy them fresh! If you have a little more time you could also bake with the kids using Bake with Bisou’s decorating and baking kits – it makes a great bonding activity.

14. Gift Mum Something Homemade or an Afternoon ‘Off’
