When we think of ways to show gratitude or affection, flowers, chocolates, or other gifts are usually what first come to mind.
But oftentimes, what mothers treasure most are the memories made and time spent with their loved ones.
This Mother’s Day, we’d like to encourage you to express your love for your mother more holistically: by making invaluable memories with her, in addition to giving her a token of your gratitude.
Depending on your mum’s personality and preferences, there are many ways you can do this. Just in case you need some inspiration for experiences or gifts, here are some ideas from us.
For an Artsy Mum: A day at the museum
As a way to create quality time with your mum, perhaps consider a trip to the National Gallery to check out its galleries and tours together. With activities and exhibitions for adults and kids alike, you can make it a memorable family affair. Couple that with afternoon tea at any one of the National Gallery’s cafes, and you have a day out worth remembering.
You can even top the day off by paying The Gallery Store by ABRY a visit, where you can get a thoughtful gift like a hand-drawn batik shawl to immortalise the experience for your mum.
For an Active Mum: A fun weekend out
Staycations are one of the easiest ways to carve out quality time, as it takes everybody away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
Shangri-La Rasa Sentosa is a gorgeous and family-friendly hotel located along the shores of Sentosa. There’s plenty to do in Sentosa, so there’ll be something for everybody. Its holiday vibe away from the city sets the stage for a fun weekend that the whole family can enjoy together.
You can also drop by their gift shop to get your mum an item from Anmako’s resort dress collection so she’ll look and feel good on this quick but meaningful getaway.
For a Homely Mum: A cosy night in
If your mum loves nothing more than to spend a night in with her loved ones, why not plan a relaxing movie night at home after dinner for Mother’s Day?
Watching a film together, whether old or new, creates a precious opportunity to share time, thoughts, and emotions. An idea for a gift that perfectly complements this experience would be Anmako’s Japanese loungewear collection. With pyjama sets and night dresses that are comfortable, versatile, and elegant all at once, it’ll be a gift that she’ll be able to use for years to come.
If your mum loves any reason to make new memories with the people she loves most, we’re certain that the gesture of love intrinsic to this movie night will tick all the boxes.
You don’t have to wait for special occasions to tell the women around you that you appreciate them. This Mother’s Day, we wish you and your mother figures a day of laughter, love, and meaning.
Happy Mother’s Day!
