WHAT TO DO FOR MOTHER’S DAY
Besides the traditional cards, flowers, and breakfast in bed, here’s a list of cool things to do to surprise your mum this Mother’s Day!
Plan a Picnic
Pack a spread of her favourite foods, a good bottle of her favourite wine (or drink, if she doesn’t consume alcohol) and a nice big blanket to spread out the love! Take your picnic to your favourite park, or you can even take it to your own backyard! Wherever you decide to go, it is an experience that she is sure to appreciate.
Go on a Float at the Palm Ave Float Club
Not the pool float, but at a floatation tank! Treat your mum to a relaxing hour in a float pod, which is a sensory-deprivation experience that is said to help relax the mind, relieve stress and help put your muscles on the fast track to recovery!
Bake a Fancy Dessert at Baker’s Brew
Up your dessert game and treat you and your mum to a Baking Class Cookoff! Learn to make trendy desserts such as lava cakes, mille-crepe cakes, macarons or even unicorn and character-themed cakes at Baker’s Brew. Each workshop takes three hours, and best of all, you get to take home your creations!
Have an Art-Jam
If you have a creative mum that loves to do arts and crafts, why not take her out for an art jam? Museo at Sentosa Cove is an art-jamming studio and restaurant rolled into one so you can treat your Mum to some good-eats too! Each art-jam session also entitles you to a complimentary signature beverage from the restaurant so you can sip away at a good cuppa joe while letting those creative thoughts flow!
Charm her with Culture
If your mum is artsy, but prefers to take in the sights and sounds rather than participate in the arts, why not take out to see the latest play or head over to a local exhibit? Check out the A List for a list of ideas. This comprehensive arts guide also hosts monthly giveaways so you and your Mum can score yourselves a free set of tickets to the next arts event!

Pamper her silly
Treat your mum to a spa day at g.spa – a 24-hour sanctuary with massage, facial, nail, eyebrows and waxing services! Entry to their spa costs S$68, but for that price, you get to use their hydro-pools, jacuzzis, beds, steam rooms… and you have access to their 24/7 Buffet! Top up your admission with a massage or facial, and spend the entire day in pampered bliss! Each admission allows you to stay up to 24 hours, so you can pig out and hole up in their cosy space for the whole day.
Or, if your mum enjoys the peace and quiet of her own home, build your own spa and stock up on all the facial masks and goodies at your nearest pharmacy. Then, get a house-call masseuse to drop by your place, and enjoy a luxurious treatment right in the comfort of your own home. Aleyda Spa offers house-call services and even spa party packages!
Take her out for a High-Tea
If pigging out is not her thing, treat mum to a fancy spot of high afternoon tea! From S$44 per person, enjoy an escape from the city at Goodwood Park Hotel’s High-Tea buffet at S$45 per person. Enjoy a spread of everything from savoury bites to sweet treats, and of course, their traditional English scones! A value-for-money buffet hidden away in the heart of the city, it’s a great place to take your mum out for a cosy chit-chat.
Organize a Family Karaoke Night
If you’ve got a diva in the house, take her out for a day of karaoke! From $28 - $35 a person for a 2 or 3 hour singing session, belt out the beats of the latest radio hits! Each admission at Manekineko Cathay Cineleisure allows you access to their free-flow snacks and drinks bar, with chips, ice cream and even cold Milo! Top up S$45 per person for their dinner buffet (6 – 10pm) and enjoy a full spread of oishi-Japanese goodness!
