Our guide to the best Mother’s Day gifts has you covered!
Mother’s Day is just a few weeks away (Sunday, 9 May, in case it’s not circled in red on your calendar like it is on ours…), and if your partner or kids need a bit of a nudge in looking for Mother’s day gifts, consider this a friendly elbow! From photo shoots to much-deserved spa breaks and bountiful blooms, our guide to the best Mother’s Day Gifts has something to suit every taste and budget. And of course, we’ve got some exclusive discounts just for Sassy Mamas (and their families)!
MUST- READ: Where to Go for a Meal This Mother’s Day
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). Even if you’re not a big scarf-wearer, the shawl makes a beautiful home decor piece as a throw in your bedroom or on the couch! With its neutral colours it’ll match any mama’s style.
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?
Can we start a tradition and be gifted a staycay every Mother’s Day? We think it’s only right! Book a luxurious staycation as a Mother’s Day gift at the iconic recently revamped Raffles Singapore with its colonial suites, stunning rooftop pool and world-class dining. Service is top-notch here so get ready to be waited on hand-and-foot during your stay! Currently there’s a hotel deal on for a complimentary night when you book (works out to be just $950 for 2 nights!) so if mama finds 2 nights of me-time a little too much, the kiddos can join on the second night… or not!
There’s also the Stay & Play staycation (or daycation) package, which features a virtual theatrical experience The Curious Case of the Missing Peranakan Treasure, a detective mystery filmed at Raffles hotel, and includes breakfast for two, two complimentary Singapore Slings, a gift from Raffles Boutique, exclusive 15% off at all Raffles-operated restaurants, bars and spa. Successful mystery solvers will receive a special Afternoon Tea Experience for two at The Grand Lobby (worth $156++).
Raffles Singapore is a part of the Accor hotels group, which currently has plenty of Mother’s Day dining deals at SO/ Singapore, Sofitel Sentosa Resort & Spa, Fairmont Singapore, Swissôtel The Stamford Singapore, Mercure Stevens and Grand Mercure Roxy Singapore – check them out here!
Cookbooks from Amazon.sg
We could all use some inspiration in the kitchen! Amazon has a fab selection of cookbooks available as Mother’s Day gifts, from the famous Ottolenghi range to great vegetarian and vegan cookbooks for mamas who are trying to go meatless.
Gift mama (or yourself!) a beautiful piece of everyday jewellery from By Invite Only’s new carefully curated Blessings & Banes collection. From minimally elegant Love Knot Studs to the delicate yet sophisticated Casablanca bracelets (shown above and available in gold, silver or rose gold), you’ll find a Mother’s Day gift to remember!
Noel Gifts has a variety of affordable Mother’s Day gift hampers, from simple blooms to sets that come with a bouquet and designer fragrances! You can also satisfy mama’s sweet tooth with their cake bundles (we’re eyeing the Salted Caramel Red Velvet cake in particular… yum).
An SUV as a Mother’s Day gift? Now that’s something we can really get behind! Us mamas are always ferrying the kiddos to and from school, tutoring classes and enrichment activities so ŠKODA‘s range of sleek yet spacious, compact 5-seater and 7-seater SUVs are perfect for your everyday commutes. The KAMIQ, KODIAQ, KAROQ are three of ŠKODA’s ‘Mum-approved’ cars, with cutting-edge safety systems which feature electric child safety locks for the rear doors, top ratings for crash safety, tougher exterior builds for added protection, and more.

We’ve got a list of the best florists and flower shops in Singapore for you to flick over to the hubs this Mother’s Day. We’ve even included some exclusive discounts just for you!
What better Mother’s Day 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.
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. Or for special Mother’s Day celebration menus check out our roundup just for Mother’s Day lunches, high teas and dinners.
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 Irina Nilsson is the best there is out there – just check out our That Mama series, of which she’s photographed many of the amazing mamas featured (together with their families!).
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!).
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).
