Make mum feel extra loved this Mother’s Day!
As if the MCO hasn’t been tough on our career, mental health and diet already, try being cooped up 24/7 with toddlers, babies and the likes. Maintaining a work-life balance has a whole different meaning, especially when you’re the school teacher, nanny, chef and mum at the same time. And hey, mums of teens and adults have it hard too!
And since Mother’s Day will take place while we’re still under MCO on May 10, as a mother myself, I can assure you that we welcome (read: demand) any sort of gift that acknowledges our worth. Not sure what to get your mum, sister or best mum friend? Read on for tips:
Elevate her skincare routine
She’ll appreciate a luxe skincare product with anti-ageing properties cos she needs all the help she can get. More specifically, the Dior Capture Totale C.E.L.L Energy Super Potent Age-Defying Serum is a great pick as the newly-upgraded formula encapsulates the potent benefits of four exceptional flowers – Madagascan longoza, peony, white lily and jasmine – to boost and revitalise skin’s cell energy levels. Extra brownie points for you if she loves floral scents.
If she’s a minimalist and loves delicate accessories, dainty jewellery is always the answer. Splurge a little on these understated fashion jewellery from Fendi as they are incredibly versatile and timeless. I guarantee you’ll see her wearing them quite often as they are elegant on their own but will make a statement when mixed with silver metals.
Power up her eyes
If she’s been complaining about her dark under-eye circles, take that hint and gift her the SK-II R.N.A Power Eye Cream. It’s powerful stuff in that it really does help in improving skin radiance and firmness around the eye area. It contains the RNArchitext Complex, a nourishing complex of PITERA with hydrolysed soy and yeasts extracts that work hard to improve the condition of the skin on and around the peepers.
The gift of sleep
Here’s a tip for all married men. If there’s anyone who needs extra sleep, it’s your significant other. And with this lavish Louis Vuitton mask made from mink fur and silk, she’ll find herself in dreamland in no time! The monogram print on the front gives it an ultra-luxe look that she’ll love.
Uplift her living space
Pick one, or better yet, all five of Diptyque’s Colouring Spring floral candles that contain a unique palette of 49 scents to help her personalise her room and turn it into a springtime sanctuary. Coming in colourful jars and vibrant scents, each one will truly make a mark in her happy space.
Make skincare fun
Anti-ageing skincare isn’t just in the products alone. The right massaging technique does wonders in lifting and firming facial contours. Thankfully, there’s a new electronic device that’ll help do just that, which is the Foreo Bear that uses micro-current and high-tech T-Sonic™ pulsations to give you a facial ‘workout’. Pair it with the Serum Serum Serum for the ultimate gift.
