Celebrating Mother’s Day: Last Minute Gift Ideas to Make Mum Feel Special

It’s the week before Mother’s Day, and you have yet to get Mum a present. But if you’ve been wracking your brain trying to come up with the perfect gift, we’ve got you covered. But what do you get a woman who has everything

When the clock is ticking and time is running out, it’s time to do some serious thinking and make a decision. Drawing a blank on what to get? Here are some quick ideas to get you started.

For the Mum Who Needs Some Pampering

When it comes to showing Mum just how much you appreciate her, nothing says it better than thoughtful gifts that make her feel loved and pampered. From pillow sprays to candles or even bath salts, every woman loves to be pampered. Take it one step further with a luxurious skincare set or artisanal soaps made with nourishing ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, or essential oils. No time to head to the shops? Online stores such as Amazon Singapore can deliver your item as early as the next day.

For the Mum Who Needs a Good Night’s Sleep

For mums who are always on the go—and which mum isn’t—a bedtime routine is essential for winding down after a busy day running errands or at the office. Gift her a set of silky pyjamas for a cosy night in bed. Or how about a satin sleep mask for a restful night ahead? If that’s not enough, add a white noise machine or even a weighted blanket, and you’ll have Mum drifting off to dreamland in no time.

For the Mum Who Needs a Cooking Upgrade

If Mum is one who loves cooking up a storm, a new kitchen gadget or two might be just what she needs. Make whipping smoothies a breeze with a state-of-the-art blender, or how about a multicooker that steams, sautés, and slow cooks? If Mum’s an avid baker, specialty baking tools will show her just how much you appreciate her treats. Head to your nearest Harvey Norman, Best, or Tott to pick the perfect gift.

For the Mum Who Needs a Crafting Escape

For the mum who loves to create anything from cards to costumes, DIY supplies will surely get her imagination and creative talent flowing. Stock up her craft corner or upgrade her crafting experience with a new sewing machine or a smart cutting machine. These are must-haves for any crafter, and you can be sure you’ll receive something special real soon, too! Visit Spotlight, Art Friend, and Krafer’s Paradise now.

For the Mum Who Needs a Little Something Extra

Want to add to Mum’s jewellery collection? Make it a little extra special by having her name engraved on it. Choose from rings, bracelets, or even necklaces. Or personalize it with the names or initials of the kiddos. Now, that’s sure to put a smile on her face. Head to stores such as Pandora and Made Different Co, and you might just get your personalised pieces on time.

For the Mum Who Needs a Bookcation

As a mum, grabbing a book and sitting down for a long, leisurely read is pretty much a luxury. So if Mum’s one who loves escaping into the pages of a good book, why not show how much you appreciate her with a book kit? Stock it up with her favourite books and a cosy throw, and you’re all set. Complete it with a gift card to her favourite bookstore, and she’s sure to make time for some literary indulgence.

For the Mum Who Needs Some Relaxation Time

Mum can’t make it to the spa? Not to worry. How about bringing the spa experience home instead? Think of spa gift sets, body scrubs, bath oils, and shower steamers. Light some candles and let your Mum spend some time unwinding and relaxing. Want to kick it up a notch? Complete the experience with a luxurious bathroom and Mum’s favourite cup of tea. Head to stores such as Sephora, Aesop, Hysses, and TWG for what you need.

For the Mum Who Needs a Fitness Boost

Is Mum on a fitness journey? Keep her motivated with new exercise gear. Take your pick from yoga mats, resistance bands as well as stylish and functional activewear to keep her going and enhance her workout experience. Want to make it more memorable? Book fitness classes for her and the kiddos to bond while working up a sweat.

With time running short, it’s time to start shopping now. However, while all these gifts can be significant tokens of your love for Mum, if you don’t manage to get your hands on anything, it’s also important to remember that what truly matters is time spent with Mum. After all, it’s these precious moments that make every day special. Happy Mother’s Day!
