As May approaches, it also means that Mother’s Day is coming soon. If you’re wondering where to bring mum out for a nice meal or what gifts to get for her, read on as we list down our suggestions to pamper and treat mum!
For the mum with a sweet tooth
The Pine Garden has released 3 new flavours specially for Mother’s Day – Coconut Mojito Coffee, Bacon & Floss Cheesecake and the reduced sugar Yoghurt Oats cake. We recommend the Coconut Mojito Coffee cake as it is a little different from the usual flavours without being too outlandish and it is light enough to enjoy as a dessert.

For the mum who brunches
Spoil mum with an extravagant brunch that includes a complimentary flower bouquet and cake – made by you, just for her! Culinary designer Hong Dingzhao has curated a lavish feast at Xperience at SO/Singapore that includes a 3-tier tower that will be served on your table loaded with hot and cold appetisers on the bottom, followed by poached prawns and mud crab, grilled whole squid, and roasted veggies in the middle, plus a delectable spread of assorted eclairs, cakes and berry crumble pie to finish on top.
You may want to go easy on the tower as there’s also a free-flow carving station where you can savour roasted chicken, Australian stripling and seabags with tomato and olive salsa. In case that wasn’t enough, you can top off the whole experience with the cheese trolley filled with artisanal cheeses and condiments that will be roaming the restaurant.
Surprise and delight mum by personally decorating her a cake and building her a flower bouquet! You’ll be provided with a small iced sponge cake and a variety of toppings, plus there will be a florist onsite who can help you curate a bespoke posy just for her. You can choose to make the bouquet yourself or leave it to the experts. One complimentary cake and bouquet will be included for every table.
SO/Singapore’s Mother’s Day Brunch is available 12-2pm on Sunday, 9 May 2021 and starts from S$88++ per person.

For the mum who loves wine
Now, we have a couple of ideas for those whose mums love wines! It all depends on your budget as well as whether you prefer to give a bottle of wine itself or a whole experience for mum that she can delight in for a whole year.
VIVANT is the first interactive online platform to connect winemakers, consumers and expert wine advisors. The platform blends engaging interaction, personalised education and lively entertainment, transporting members to iconic wine regions without leaving home.
You can get mum an annual membership (S$239/year) that includes unlimited access to Live Experiences featuring responsible winemakers and the world’s best tasting wines made naturally, access to Tasting Kits to taste along in real-time, wine education and tasting skills development with the Interactive Tasting Method.
Cuvee Chérie is Nyetimber’s Demi-Sec wine. Designed to pair with a wide variety of cuisines, Cuvee Chérie entices with a fine balance of zest and sweetness, perfectly matched with fragrant, lightly spiced savoury dishes and flavours found in Asian cuisines, savoury foods such as foie gras, and delicate desserts such as fruit tarts, meringues and possets.
You can really show mum your love by personally making her a Lemon Meringue Pie and pairing it with this wine!
Cuvee Chérie’s name connects with the translation of Chérie as sweetheart, in reference to the refined, contemporary spirit of this wine, and offers a subtle reference to the sweetness.
For the mum who loves personalised skincare
Treat mum to Singapore’s first end-to-end DNA-based skincare at Anake and unlock the key to her skin’s perfection by utilising the latest AI and DNA-based technologies. Their 4-step beauty approach is simply:

For the mum who is earth-conscious and loves beauty drinks
Naked Blend is a home-grown and manufactured line of beauty and wellness beverages that is earth-conscious in 3 main ways:
- Ingredients are from eco-friendly farms: They choose botanical ingredients from eco-friendly farms with double functionalities for health and weight management. For example, their pea protein in their milk tea provides a high source of iron, promotes heart health and boosts feelings of fullness after meals.
- All their ingredients are vegan: No animal products or by-products are used. Instead of animal-derived milk powder and creamer, they use soy milk powder and coconut creamer in their low-calorie Diet Milk Tea. In addition, they took pains to get Vitamin D from a plant source (lichen) when the usual practice would have to get animal-derived Vitamin D which is cheaper and easier to obtain.
- They use recyclable packaging: All their sachets are wrapped in a paper box, which can be recycled and they minimise the use of plastic unless absolutely necessary. On top of that, Naked Blend’s Shaker Bottles can be repurposed to pack snacks and fruits for munching on the go!
Naked Blend sells for S$65 per box (15 sachets) and S$125 for 2 boxes.
Naked Blend beverages are Halal-certified, gluten-free, vegan and Keto-friendly. Additionally, S$1 from each sale will go to The World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), an organisation known for its conservation efforts and solutions to preserve the wealth of biodiversity around the world.

Give mum the ultimate afternoon tea experience with a curated assortment of Marks & Spencer afternoon tea items such as Cheese and Sultana scones to Red Velvet Cake and Coffee Sponge Roll, even a selection of teas to pair with these delights where you can treat mum like a queen with a royal tea experience without breaking the bank.
For the sentimental mum
If mother dearest is an avid reader, why not give her a major love letter in the form of a book? “Letter to My Mother” is a compilation of letters from sons and daughters to their mothers about their relationships and is a testament to the nurturing love that mothers have for their children.
