With the unwavering support of mothers everywhere, we celebrate Mother’s Day to honor their sacrifices for the family. This year, International Mother’s Day fell on May 14, 2023. This day and the following days provide a wonderful opportunity for you to express how much your mother means to you. If you haven’t planned anything yet, don’t worry, there’s still time. Instead of resorting to cheesy cards and a boring box of chocolates, show your gratitude and pamper her this week with unforgettable experiences.
Start with these activities:
#1: ASSIST WITH HOUSEHOLD CHORES
Helping with household chores shouldn’t be limited to a one-day event. Whenever you can, lend a hand to ease your mother’s or partner’s daily tasks. While it’s understandable to be preoccupied with busy work schedules, it’s important to carve out time from your priorities to assist around the house. Simple chores like folding, vacuuming, sweeping, or mopping can be completed in a short amount of time. Gather some household cleaning products and get started!
#2: MOVIE MARATHON WITH MUM
Lying on the couch while watching your favorite shows can be a perfect, no-cost form of relaxation. Put on your mother’s or partner’s favorite K-Drama, Netflix show, or Chinese movie, and indulge in a marathon with them all night long! Don’t forget to bring some chips and cook some popcorn. Creating a cozy ambiance for this joyous occasion can be enhanced with the best scented candles. My mother’s personal choice is Yankee Candle.
#3: INDULGE IN BRUNCH
If you genuinely want to go all out for your special woman, consider treating her to a glorious brunch this weekend or during your lunch break. Remember to make an advance reservation to secure your spot. Lola’s Café offers a delightful selection of croissants, scrambled eggs, smoked chicken ham, mushroom grilled cheese sandwiches, and much more. If you prefer American cuisine-inspired all-day breakfast options starting at just $6, you should definitely check out Joji’s Diner.
#4: EMBRACE YOUR WILD SIDE
Looking for a unique experience with your mother or wife? Consider visiting the Night Safari. Embark on an adventure through the animal kingdom aboard a private chartered tram, followed by a delectable dinner. This enchanting experience is called “Evening in the Wild” and takes place at Singapore’s largest Tipi Tent. Book here.
#5: GET ACTIVE
When the weather allows, my family and I enjoy going on evening walks. I suggest asking your superwoman for a nature walk. Botanic Gardens, Fort Siloso at Sentosa, or a stroll by the Singapore River are all excellent choices, but our favorite is the MacRitchie Nature Trail. It offers a combination of fresh air, stunning views, and a touch of history during your trek. If the hills seem too challenging, you can opt for a more leisurely pram-friendly walk around Singapore or explore new cycling routes to entertain the whole family!
#6: RADIATE FLOWER POWER
Surprise your mother with a delightful bouquet of fresh flowers or arrange a rustic cluster of boho-chic peonies to brighten her day. Singapore’s flower experts can assist you in adding a personal touch. If your mother enjoys gardening, consider gifting her a fuss-free indoor gardening kit, such as the ones available on Lazada.
#7: ENJOY A PAMPER SESSION
Surprise your mother or wife with a heartfelt gesture by sending her a selection of top facials and letting her choose which one to book. And don’t forget the rejuvenating power of reflexology! In no time, she’ll feel completely recharged. If you want to pamper her, go the extra mile by offering a luxurious package that includes massages, facials, and a glass of champagne or a soothing cup of tea. Treat her to a day filled with relaxation and pure bliss.
#8: BURN SOME CALORIES AT A FITNESS CLASS
If you and your mother or wife are adrenaline junkies, why not spend some quality time at the gym? Grab your yoga mat and enjoy a relaxing yoga class at HOM Yoga or Yoga Movement. Alternatively, get your heart pumping with indoor spin classes at The Ripple Club or Sync Cycle.
You never know, this exhilarating experience might turn into a weekly date activity with your loved one!
