Don’t let this extended circuit breaker spoil your plans for Mother’s Day (Sunday, 10 May 2020), because the only one who should be spoiled is mum. 

Mother’s Day is just around the corner and there’s no reason why this extended circuit breaker should play spoilsport.

You can’t go wrong with flowers. From just $50, Happy Bunch delivers a fresh carnation bouquet right to mum’s front door. There’s also Flower Addict and The Floral Atelier, which offer a wider range of extravagant bouquets, bloom boxes and gift bundles just for Mother’s Day.

Pro-tip: A thoughtful and useful gift, mum’s not just going to have a good laugh, but also a good supply of hand sanitiser for the next couple of months. 
Price: From $50 (including delivery charge)

Cake

No proper celebration is complete without a cake! With the new tightened circuit breaker measures in place, getting one delivered to your home might prove to be a challenge. But, fret not, we’ve found 11 cakes shops, which are still spreading tasty calorific joy and delivering cakes this Mother’s Day.

Pro-tip: Go take your pick of a cake she’d love here.
Price: From $8.50 (excluding delivery charge)

Caffeine Booster

There’s nothing quite like waking up to a fresh cup of Joe, and if mum is a coffee drinker, you could definitely consider getting her a starter kit from Common Man Coffee Roasters. It is a full home brewing set that consists of a coffee bean hand grinder, Kalita Wave drip apparatus, filter paper and 12 bags of single origin coffee beans. 

Pro-tip: If that’s too much trouble just for coffee, there’s also the option of gifting her a cold brew care pack from Bootstrap, Parallel or Old Hen Coffee
Price: From $25 (excluding delivery charge)

Activity Ideas

Make dessert as a family

How about an afternoon of fun in the kitchen with a DIY bake kit by renowned chocolatier Janice Wong? The kit comes filled with chocolate bon bons, chocolate chip cookie premix, cupcake premix, baking accessories, recipe cards and a dessert book. For something more personal, you could pick out baking items and customise your very own DIY bake kit from stores like Red Man by Phoon Huat or The Source, which remain open during this circuit breaker. 

Pro-tip: If everyone in the family agrees to participate, you could turn it into a fun bake-off!
Price: From $30 (excluding delivery charge)

Watch and participate in a Masterclass together

Masterclass is an e-learning platform that offers members a library of over 80 instructional videos by experts in various fields. You could pick up singing techniques from Christina Aguilera, cooking techniques from Gordon Ramsey, storytelling from Neil Gaiman — the list and possibilities are endless. 

Simply watching a Masterclass video together doesn’t exactly count as a memorable activity for Mother’s Day. To truly make it one, consider planning for a post activity to participate in together that would put your new skills into practice. 

Pro-tip: This is a great activity for those of you who do not stay with mum. You could simply order the materials for the post activity online and have them delivered to her place. 
Price: 2 Annual passes to all Masterclass videos for $255 (US$180)

Be her personal bartender

To keep budding bartenders and passionate cocktail drinkers occupied, some of the world’s best hotel bars have leaked their signature cocktail recipes online. Treat mummy dearest to an afternoon tipple (or three) and impress her with your bartending skills, as you try to replicate one of these fancy cocktails:

Pro-tip: Alternatively, you could skip all of that and gift mum a beautiful Gin cocktail set from Sasha’s Fine Foods, or a set of pre-mixed artisanal cocktails by one of Singapore’s best bars, ATLAS. 
Price: From as little as $10 (if you have most of the spirits stocked at home)
