Six ideas for this Mother’s Day weekend.
It may seem like the year has just begun but thanks to the calendars we’re always reminded of how far into it we are. Mother’s Day is rolling around this weekend and off we scramble to make the important woman in our life feel appreciated (not that we shouldn’t be doing that already all year long). In order to lend a helping hand with your mission, should you choose to accept it, here’s a quick roundup of gifts and activities perfect for your beloved mother.
What better way to show the depth of your love than with jewellery? Homegrown maison Poh Kong has got that covered with a special collection of pearls to commemorate this occasion. Considered the best-loved gems of all time, pearls have been a prized possession, a treasure sought after by the ancient societies of China, Egypt and Greece. From intricate pearl pendants to tastefully crafted earrings, this collection is sure to make your significant other feel cherished on Mother’s Day.
Give Mother a much-deserved perpetual hug with the latest reiteration of Hublot’s innovative ‘One Click’ 39 mm featuring Orylag, an exceptional artisanal material made in France composed of extremely fine hairs of unequalled softness. Called Cuddly Cuff straps, they come in various colours including Fuchsia, Electric Turquoise and Mottled Grey.
If the mall is where your mother loves to be, then The Gardens Mall is where you should take her to this weekend. In conjunction with the celebration of mothers, a one-stop Beauty and Wellness showcase has been set up at The Gardens Mall South Palm, North Atrium, and South Atrium featuring products and promotions by beauty and wellness brands including Neal’s Yard Remedies & THREE, KENS Apothecary, Laura Mercier, Hairco and Paris Miki Cosme, Decorté, Astalift of Isetan, and Chanel and La Mer of Robinsons. Expect to pamper mother with a complete beauty and wellness experience; from recommendations by beauty and hair experts to quick pampering sessions.
In case the queen of your home is of the cool kind (not that other mothers are not cool), give her a treat by signing up to Netflix. Whether she’s a big fan of Brad Pitt or simply a feminist, the VOD channel will keep your mom and the entire family entertained.
Sometimes an intimate dinner is what you need to say thank you. Take mom out to a wine pairing dinner at Enfin by James Won where an amazing selection of ICON wines collection by Moët Hennessy Estates & Wines await. Select from the Cape Mentelle Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 from Australia, Cheval des Andes 2012 red wine from Argentina and Kiwi pinot noir Cloudy Bay estate – Te Wahi 2014. Let the wine pour and conversations flow as you tell her how much you love her.
In case you’re feeling a little generous this weekend, why not take advantage of the newly opened AirAsia route to Solo for a quick getaway at Alila Solo? Indulge her at Spa Alila, where trained masseurs provide unique treatments from the heart, blending ancient Asian healing techniques with age-old beauty recipes featuring the curative benefits of fresh, natural, quality ingredients. After all, the Alila experience is truly what a mother deserves.
