Mother’s Day is just a stone’s throw away. Although celebrations this year may look a little different in the wake of the pandemic, there are a multitude of ways – other than that fancy brunch or spa day that you might have had in mind – to honour and pamper one of the most important people in your lives. Whether she’s a culinary goddess, passionate reader or a beauty aficionado, we have curated a list that is bound to have the perfect pressie for your mum.
For the Active Mum: Yumi Active
If your mum lives and breathes fitness, give her that extra boost of confidence by refreshing her workout gear. Shop for haute couture activewear on Yumi Active that are stylish (think eye-catching motifs on bright hues) and super comfy due to its breathable customised miSkin performance fabric. Throw an avaGrip Mat Towel (from S$78) into the mix for the perfect gift. Your mum will definitely appreciate this highly absorbent non-slip cover for her yoga mat during her at-home workout sesh.

For the Tech-Savvy Mum: Leaf by Bellabeat

Leaf by Bellabeat is a wellness gadget that tracks activity, sleep, menstrual cycle and stress sensitivity. The icing on the cake? It doubles up as a chic bracelet, necklace and even a brooch.
