From flowers to sumptuous spa experiences, there’s no shortage of gifts you can choose to show your mother how much she’s appreciated this year. Rather than select among all the options, why not go the whole nine yards and treat mum to a full day of rest and recreation, from the moment she wakes up to when the sun is ready to set for the day? We’ve hand-picked the best gifts and experiences for an unforgettable day.
Swipe through our slideshow for the perfect Mother’s Day – she deserves it!
9am: Breakfast in Bed
Nothing shows appreciation more than a home-cooked breakfast. Even better - serve it so that mum doesn't even have to get out of bed. These laquer trays by TREE make for the perfect backdrop for your meal. They're also chic surfaces for displaying jewellery or trinkets.
10am: Say it with Flowers
When it comes to giving gifts, flowers are classic, timeless, and add a touch of vibrancy and colour to the home. Floral designers Flannel Flowers have partnered up with contemporary jeweller Monica Vinader for a special gift: a bouquet of gorgeous blooms - Dutch peonies, roses, and Japanese delphiniums - paired with an exquisite peach and rose gold vermeil bracelet. Add a personal touch by getting a complimentary message engraving.
10 am: Dress Your Table
Of course, a beautiful bouquet requires a vessel just as visually stunning. We recommend this crystal Madison vase by Christofle, which brings sparkle and joie de vivre to any table setting.
12pm: Ladies who Brunch
Enjoy a leisurely mid-day meal amidst the luxurious surrounds of Ce La Vi. The restaurant's weekend brunch features a delectable menu of classic dishes with a Korean twist courtesy of executive chef Kun Young Pak. Sip on cocktails while enjoying the space's stunning views. The best bit? All ladies will be presented with a De-Stressing Gift Set by Aromatherapy Associates after the meal so that the unwinding can continue at home.
2pm: Rest and Relax
An afternoon siesta is customary after nibbling on delicious treats, but even better is a relaxing afternoon at the spa. W Hotel's Bliss Spa is offering the Mum Rocks special package, which includes an anti-ageing facial, an aroma massage, and access to to the spa's vitality pool, outdoor swimming pool, steam room, sauna, and other facilities. Available until the end of the month.
4pm: Chocolate Connoisseur
After freshening up, head to the InterContinental for their Parisian Afternoon Tea Set, where you can enjoy panoramic views while being serenaded by the soothing tones of live classical music. Either go for the traditional Parisian tea with exclusive artisanal chocolates and French pastries, or try the Red Box Chinese tea with savoury Asian snacks featuring flavours such as lotus paste and mango. Available until the end of the month.
8pm: More Sweet Treats
End the day on a sweet note with one of Ms B's Cakery's new confections. Created especially for the occasion, the True Love cake, for example, has hints of guava and delicate hand-crafted sugar blooms presented on edible 24k golden fondant. Alternatively, pick among three other cakes as well as a range of chocolates and gift boxes. Available until May 14. Cake orders must be placed two days in advance before 6pm.
10pm: Luxuriate in Bed
For busy mums there's no better gift than a good, comfortable night's sleep. Guarantee a quality snooze with these Sybillia Fuchsia sheets from the Designer's Guild. Stylised tulips and peonies are interwoven with graphic lines and printed onto smooth, 300-thread-count cotton sateen. The perfect end to a perfect day.
