Every year, in the blink of an eye, May slowly creeps up on us and before we know it, Mother’s Day is here! Be sure to mark your calendar for 10 May 2020. Have you already thought about what to get for your mom? Especially in such uncertain times of COVID-19, it might not be easy to put together a celebration the way you want it to be, especially if you are staying apart from her during Circuit Breaker – but hey, it is possible to show mama how much you love her in many different ways.
❤️ Like all mothers, if she grumbles and say, “aiyah, girl ah, so expensive” or “ah boy, don’t anyhow spend money”, you can proudly tell her that they are all “on discount, Ma!” 🙂
1. Spending Time Together… Eating!
🍜 Like they always say, a family who eats together, stays together!
Give your mom a break from cooking, and order in a delicious meal for a satisfying Mother’s Day lunch for the whole family. Be sure to include some of her favourite food!
If you are not staying together with mama dearest, simply get her to download a video conferencing app such as Skype, FaceTime, Zoom or even Whatsapp Video Call. Order a set of her favourite food to be delivered to her, and another set for yourself. Set up a video dining date together with her! Although you are physically apart, she would surely feel the warmth and effort that you’ve put into preparing for your “lunch or dinner celebration”!

4. Make Her Life Easier…
💁🏻 If there is any time that she would be working harder than ever, it is now, during the Circuit Breaker period. If she is working from home too, she has to work, do housework, cook for your family and more. If she is retired, I am sure she must be cooking up a storm in the kitchen nearly every day! If you are not staying together, she must be busy cleaning or decluttering her home too.
Here are some great buys that you can get delivered to her to make her life easier! Whether it’s getting the chores or cooking done faster, she can get more time to rest or do her own things!
Look forward to the goodies that she can make for you, minus all the cleaning up that comes with frying.

Cooking will never be the same again with the convenience of Philips Viva Collection All-in-One Cooker! With the digital pressure cooking feature, your mom’s cooking time will be reduced, leaving her time for other things as well as more rest.

So take this chance to celebrate the closeness that you have with each other over the years and simply just do nothing together, and if you must, here are some things you can do together!
- Do Yoga together. Take your pick of a gentle flow workout here on Singapore’s very own Hom Yoga’s online studio here. Remember to go slow!
- Take a cultural “trip” to the world’s best museums on Google Arts & Culture Collection of Museums virtual tours here.
- If she is a TVB Fan, check out the classic Hong Kong TV dramas that are being streamed for free on TVB’s official YouTube channel here!
You can also simply make her a coffee, breakfast or even a simple home-made card to show her how much you appreciate her! It really doesn’t matter what you do for mothers, as long as you put in some thought to it. She will appreciate it no matter what she says! ❤️
We hope that these promotions and ideas that we’ve specially handpicked for you will make this year’s Mother’s Day a special one for your family, despite us being in Circuit Breaker mode. Stay well and enjoy the celebration!
🌻 MAKE MOTHER’S DAY AN EXTRA SPECIAL ONE THIS YEAR!
Mother’s Day marks a celebration of showing appreciation and honoring the mother of the family, as well as motherhood, maternal bonds, and the influence of mothers in society. In Singapore, Mother’s Day is usually celebrated on the second sunday of May. This year, it falls on 10 May 2020!
Whether you call that special lady in your life mummy, mom, mama, mother, grandma, grandmother, ah-mah, po po, mother-in-law or even godma, this is the perfect time for you to take her and show her how much you appreciate having her in your life. You could shower her with gifts and affections, or if you are more of a low-key person, you can take her out to a nice brunch or dinner. There are many ways you can make her Mother’s Day special, especially when she knows that it is out of your appreciation and love.
As long you put your heart to making this day special for mummy dearest, she will love it no matter what! Well, we know that the typical Asian mum will say the usual, “Don’t waste money la” or “Just do something simple”. However, we all know that all the planning for that moment when you see how happy your mother’s face is when she receives her Mother’s Day gift will be priceless. With credit card promotions or even special offers available, you don’t have to spend alot to make Mother’s Day a special occasion.
So you don’t know what you’re gonna do or get for her this Mother’s Day? Well, let us give you some ideas:
🎁 GET HER SOMETHING NICE
Your mum might already have many bags, clothes or jewellery, but buying her something special or something that she needs is also a nice touch to Mother’s Day. Observe her in the weeks leading up to Mother’s Day. Is there anything that might make her life easier? Something that she could perhaps use in her daily routine? Or simply something that could ignite some joy in her whenever she sees or uses it.
Here are some gift ideas that you can give her:
- Flowers: You could never ever go wrong with getting flowers or a bouquet. You could say that it’s the easiest gift you can get someone, and you’re somewhat right! Flowers are always a nice touch. No one hates getting flowers, especially on special occasions!
- Electronics / Kitchen Gadgets: Do you secretly know what gadget your mom has been waiting to buy? Maybe a new computer, TV, smartphone, or smartwatch? How about a Fitbit? Or it could be a KitchenAid! Well, Mother’s Day deals will be the perfect time for you to buy all of those. With all the awesome promotions available, electronics are now way cheaper than they used to be.
- Makeup: Does your mother enjoy wearing makeup? Well, here is a chance for you to get her favorite makeup for her. We all know that good makeup is not cheap, so she would definitely love it when you get them for her! Sephora is the perfect place for you to find them, and from the special offers available here, you’ll be happy with the deals.
🤴🏻 STAY HOME AND TREAT HER LIKE A QUEEN
A mother’s work is never done. So another good idea is to just stay home and still make her Mother’s Day very special. Start off the day with breakfast in bed. It is a really lovely gesture to your mother and it’s a fun way to start your own day. Be sure to wash up and leave her kitchen sparkling clean after!
If your mother is the one who take care of the household, do her chores for her! Do the laundry, clean up the house, cook for the family, etc. Taking off the load off your mother’s shoulders will ease up her day.
Your mother will appreciate anything you do for her or give her as gifts, because she knows you are doing it out of love. So just put your heart into it when you’re planning and give it your fullest effort!
