Have you been remiss in buying your mum a present for Mother’s Day? When you’re in a rush, it’s tempting to go for a generic gift like scented candles or scarves. Buying something that has a little more to do with your mum’s personality requires way more thought – but worry, not, we’ve got the most common types of personalities down and what to buy for each one.
Now, before you balk at the suggestion of buy underthings for your own
mother, we’re going to clarify: this is underwear, not lingerie. And no
mum would say no to an item from Triumph’s Body MakeUp collection, which
is so breathable and lightweight that you’ll feel as if you’re not even
wearing underwear. As a bonus, the nude-coloured bras feature Triumph’s
patented Memory Cushion cups, which mould to the curves of your body
for ultimate comfort. Sounds perfect for a mum who’s too busy running a
household (or shuttling between work, school, and the home) for
You’ve likely seen Furla’s super hip CANDY bag being touted around town.
If you’ve ever caught your mum peering at one through the window, why
don’t you spring for one of Furla’s dreamy CANDY SUNSET bags? We love
the sea and sunset-inspired gradients – and if your mum’s a bit of a
fashionista, she will too, as ombre is all the rage right now. If your
mum doesn’t mind waiting a couple of weeks for her present, then Furla
is the way to go.
Whether you mum’s a busy who’s always running errands, or she’s just a
lover of the great outdoors, we can all agree that the humid climate
here in Singapore can take a toll one one’s skin. If you’ve ever heard
your mum lamenting her clogged skin, you can buy her Bioderm’s Sebium
Pore H20, a gentle cleansing product that prevents sebum from building
up in your pores. We love the product’s watery texture, anti-shine care,
and anti-bacterial care – perfect for either removing makeup, or giving
one’s face a refresher after a long day.
Does your mum constantly pine the speed of technology and the rarity in
of having an album full of physical photos? Then buy her the HP
Photosmart 7520 e-All-in-One printer, which can print high-quality
images wirelessly from any Wi-Fi enabled mobile device. Be prepared to
see your refrigerator peppered with photos that she prints from your
Feeling extra generous this year? Give something to a friend who just
gave birth as a way to encourage and congratulate her on her special
day. If she’s breastfeeding, we recommend the Philips AVENT Comfort
Single Electric Pump, which is capable of remembering the user’s
personal pumping rhythm. Pumping breast milk might feel a little
uncomfortable, but this little gadget may alleviate some of the pain and
hassle that comes with it.
What mum HASN’T wanted an air fryer at some point? Philips’ popular air
fryer not only makes the cook’s job easier, but it produces food that is
a lot healthier. By requiring a lot less oil, the air fryer can create
food that contains up to 80 percent less fat. It’s also extremely
versatile, as you can fry everything from French fries, to chicken
nuggets, to steaks inside without compromising their taste.
We all know a mum who loves to entertain. If your mother can frequently
be found at home throwing tea parties for her friends, then spring for
World Kitchen’s 18-piece Corelle Provence Garden Range, which was
inspired by the spring blossoms in Eastern France. The cheerful
wildflower designs and fresh colours will charm her guests while keeping
Got any sophisticated, stylish mamas in your life? Consider gifting them
with a Tiffany Gemea watch, which is studded on tsvaorites, blue
tourmalines and pink, and blue and orange sapphires. These watches,
which belong to the Tiffany Gallery collection, were inspired by the
American Art Deco movement in the 1920s – perfect for someone who can
appreciate a little old-school glamour.
Fresh off the heels of Tim Ho Wan’s expansion in Singapore PUMA and

inspired by the yellow wrapping around dumplings, while the white ‘Har
Gar’ shoe references the delicate skin around a shrimp dumpling.
