Don't know what to get Mum this Mother's Day? Here are some fantastic last-minute gift ideas.
Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and we’re excited to have a day that celebrates just us! It’s the one day in the year (besides our birthdays) where we get treated like queens with gifts and crafts aplenty. Whether you’re a mum-to-be, a new mum or already a seasoned mum, we’ve put together some last-minute gift ideas that’ll make you happy – take note, husbands!
Flowers AND jewellery? Whoop!
We love BloomBack’s range of preserved and arranged flowers – not only because they’re gorgeous to look at, but also because they’re eco-friendly, too. It’s definitely a great last-minute gift for Mother’s Day! BloomBack has also partnered with one of our favourite jewellery stores, ByInviteOnly, to offer five gift sets, each with a flower arrangement and accompanying jewellery to make you feel oh-so-special. The best part? Same-day delivery for a last-minute gift idea – but we reckon it’s best to put in an order now…
At-home facial goodness
Want to maintain a youthful glow? Check out SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence – not only does it help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, but it also improves firmness and radiance, helping you achieve beautiful, youthful skin. It’s something we definitely appreciate having since we can’t go for facials during this circuit breaker.
Mmmm, a back massage…
One of the many things we miss during this circuit breaker is getting a massage, especially after a long day of sitting in our home office, or running around after the kids and helping them with their online learning. We might not be able to leave our houses for a little longer, but we can certainly get a massage in the comfort of our own home with Osim’s uCozy 3D back massager! It provides deep tissue relief as it kneads into your muscles, and can also be used for your shoulders – a godsend when we need a break.
Tuck into some Italian grub
Hungry for some good Italian food and don’t have a last-minute gift idea for Mum? Jamie’s Italian to the rescue! The restaurant is offering a complimentary bottle of Moscato on top of its existing promotions to help you celebrate this very special day at home. All you need to do is spend a minimum of $100 from 8 to 10 May to receive a free bottle of wine – a tasty last-minute gift idea that the whole family can enjoy.

Get snap happy
If you love taking pictures of everything and wants a simple, no-fuss camera that produces high-quality pictures, the Canon Powershot G7 X Mark III is a great camera for you this Mother’s Day. It also allows you to shoot landscape videos and review footage whenever you want, and comes with a free 32GB SD card when you purchase it from now till 31 May. It’s a gift we definitely want to record every moment with our family!
Drown out the tantrum noise
Let’s face it, mums: as much as we love our kiddos, during this circuit breaker, we could do with some peace and quiet. And while going out isn’t necessarily the best option at times, this nifty pair of headphones should certainly do the trick. For crisp and bass-heavy sounds and an unparalleled active noise cancelling system with 11 levels of noise cancellation, you’ll want to receive these gorgeous Bose 700 headphones. They’re even optimised to work with the Google Assistant so you’re totally hands-free to do everything else.
If you love chocolate, best nudge your hubby and kids to buy some tasty bars of chocolates for you this Mother’s Day. Whether you enjoy a bean-to-bar chocolate bar, or one from ethical and sustainable chocolate companies in Asia, Hello Chocolate has a range of selected chocolate bars that are curated for chocolate lovers like yourself. We personally love the super dark chocolate gift set – it’s a 100% fat-burner and is a great treat after running and exercising in our spare time. Plus, same-day delivery if you order before 11am – a perfect last-minute gift idea for you.
Bake up a storm
We love baked treats – from bread to cakes and cookies, there’s nothing we love more. And if you’re the same, you’ll want to get your hands on Janice Wong’s Bake at Home Mother’s Day hamper. You’ll get to make chocolate chips and cupcakes from scratch – including icing – plus, Janice Wong’s dessert book will spur you on to bake more sweet treats. Psst, delivery is 24-48 hours from date of order unless notified.
Wake up and smell the flowers
Flowers are not only gorgeous to look at, but receiving a bouquet never fails to put a smile on our dials! After all, who doesn’t love receiving flowers? Order a bouquet of flowers from one of the best florists in Singapore for a great last-minute gift idea. Lots of our top picks do same-day or next-day delivery.
And don’t forget…
If your other half reaaaally leaves things to the last-minute, then our DIY crafts and cards are also worth considering! And, for further inspo, check out what us HoneyKids mums want this weekend. Although, truth be told, the best part about Mother’s Day is getting to spend time together as a family. If you can’t purchase anything in time for our special day, it’s okay – honestly, we’re just happy to have everyone safe and healthy at this time. Plus, you can always make it up to us next year…
