You might have dropped a subtle hint or two about what you fancy doing for Mother’s Day 2021, but if the other half and kids are still not getting the memo, here’s the guide you need to forward their way. From all the places to dine in Singapore for the big day to what to do to celebrate just how wonderful you are, we’ve got all the details on fun things to do for Mother’s Day 2021 in Singapore!
THINGS TO DO FOR MOTHER’S DAY 2021 IN SINGAPORE
1. Indulge at a Mother’s Day brunch!
If you really want to go all out this Mother’s Day (and let’s be honest, you’ve earned it), then drop a hint to the other half about booking one of these amazing brunches for the big day. There’s everything, from an ABBA-themed brunch affair at Sofitel Singapore Sentosa to a classic brunch with all the trimmings at Edge Pan Pacific Singapore. Get booking; we reckon they’re going to be popular!
2. Book a staycation
Why limit the celebrations to a day? Make a weekend of it and book a staycay! There are so many super-duper staycation choices suitable for all the fam. Take a look at this list, book your fave, and relax poolside – Mother’s Day bliss!
3. Relax and rejuvenate at this free pilates workshop!
We love the sound of this chilled out workshop at Sing See Soon! You’ll get a 45 min pilates session, then a break to tuck into some healthy acai bowls from The Acai Duo. Then it’s time to do a bit of floral jamming with a lovely take-home posy. This is a free workshop, although a donation is encouraged as it’s a charity event with all proceeds going to single-parent families in need. Feeling good and doing good – the perfect combo!
4. Have an evening in the wild this Mother’s Day at the Night Safari
Fancy a Mother’s Day with a difference? Check out this unique experience at the Night Safari! You’ll get to explore the animal kingdom onboard a private chartered tram before indulging in a luxurious four-course gourmet dinner at Night Safari’s lakeside tipi-tent with sunset views – dreamy!
5. Treat Mum to afternoon tea
Another fab option this Mother’s Day to spoil us with is afternoon tea, and there’s so many to choose from. For afternoon tea with a side of awesome views, book the high tea at Skai, located on the 70th floor of Swisshotel The Stamford. Or, for an equally impressive (albeit not so high option), check out Anti:dote, which is offering a delish afternoon tea, plus the option to add free-flow champers, hooray!
6. Enjoy a day out with the fam
Although we might whine about it every once in a while, we do love our family time – spending quality time together is always the best kind of day. So why not scour this list of top 50 things to do in SG, and pick something new for you and fam to enjoy this Mother’s Day. You can always throw in dinner out too, and really make a day of it.
7. Get culinary with a Mother’s Day baking class!
If Mum is all about baking and is looking for a bit of me-time and something new to try her hand at, then how about making mantou (a Chinese steamed bun). And it’s not any old mantou; this one is a beautiful 3D super mama steamed mantou, complete with mini flowers – cute! Learn all the basics from Shirley Tan, founder of Kneadtoinspire, and become a mantou pro in no time!
8. Indoor play (with a Mother’s Day twist!)
Yep, Pororo Park might not be the top of your list when you thought of your dream Mother’s Day, but you might just reconsider when you hear the stops they are pulling out for the big day. First up, mums get treated to flowers, then there’s plenty of craft activities to keep the kids busy, plus exclusive discounts for all. We think we’ve changed our minds!
9. Book a Mother’s Day lunch or dinner
Don’t get carried away on the brunch and afternoon tea options, and miss having a look at the amazing set menus that are being rolled out for Mother’s Day. If you want to celebrate all things Mamma the Italian way, then check out the Italian feast at Zafferano. Or, for a Thai-inspired (and very reasonable) affair, get a table at Blue Jasmine for their Mother’s Day menu.
10. Treat Mum to a pamper session
If, like us, you’d really like some TLC this Mother’s Day, then casually send this list of top facials to the other half and book some me-time. Or, how about some reflexology? We promise you’ll feel recharged in no time!
11. Mother’s Day wreath-making workshop
If you’ve always fancied trying to make one of those gorgeous flower wreaths but never known where to start, then why not use Mother’s Day as an excuse to book on this fab wreath making course! Even better, each ticket is for a pair, so if you have an older kid who fancies getting creative, or if you want to treat your own mum – then this could be perfect!
12. Visit Gardens by the Bay and get crafty!
Gardens by the Bay is a treat in itself and a lovely day out for Mother’s Day, so they are really spoiling us with the addition of a craft workshop too! Book tickets to the Flower Dome and sign up for a Get Crafty session. For $12, you’ll get the chance to create a take-home floral art frame – a great Mother’s Day gift! Book your sessions in advance to secure your spot.
AT HOME IDEAS FOR MOTHER’S DAY 2021 IN SINGAPORE!
We asked some of the HoneyKids mums what they really wanted for Mother’s Day, and most of them said they wished for a lie-in, peace and quiet, and time to relax at home. Easy peasy Mother’s Day gift, right?! But if that’s not on the cards, here’s a few other ideas that will do just nicely to enjoy Mother’s Day at home…
13. (Attempt to) cook up a storm
Why not wake Mum up (gently) with some breakfast in bed – smoked salmon and avo toast, blueberry pancakes – you know the drill. Need more breakfast inspo? Here are some fun things you can do with toast. If you’re not really a cooking kinda guy, then rescue the day and order in!
14. And don’t forget dessert!
It might not be a birthday, but we reckon every mum deserves a few sweet treats come Mother’s Day. We’ve got heart eyes for the delicious looking Pinky Sticky Chewy Chocolate ice cream cake from Swensen’s! Good luck telling the kids this one is for mum!
15. Nothing says love more than a bouquet of flowers
Mums, raise your hands if you love a nice bouquet of flowers. Tried-and-tested, nothing beats a surprise bouquet on the doorstep or seeing a great vase of flowers on your dining table. We’ve found the prettiest posies and most fab flower delivery services. You’re welcome.
16. Add these to your basket
Struggling for a Mother’s Day gift? Take a look at this gift guide for all the inspo you need! From chocolate yumminess to the prettiest of jewellery, there’s something for every mummy!
17. Get crafty with the kids
The best kind of gifts? Handmade ones! Hunt down those craft supplies and try out these craft ideas for kids of all ages: we’re talking rock painting, origami heart bookmarks and more – whoop whoop! Or, in light of the times, you could even make a DIY face mask.
18. Learn the art of massage
NEWSFLASH: Udemy is offering a beginner’s massage class! Yep, hubby can learn how to give the love of his life (you!) the massage she so rightfully deserves. Go the extra mile and stock up on essential oils and face masks to complete the whole spa experience.
19. Wine not?
Yes, after coffee, wine is our go-t0 beverage. Our big sister, the Honeycombers, has come up with an incredible list of all the alcohol delivery services on the island. Whatever your poison – beer, wine, sake, spirits – they’ve got you covered. So much yes.
20. Spending quality time with our favourites
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again: time with the fam is always a fave, even if it’s in the comfort of our own home. So stock up on the yummy goodies and have some quality time together. We can build blanket forts and watch family movies, splash in the paddling pool and eat popsicles!
Happy Mother’s Day!
