Moms are always so dear and important to us. And on her big day, dedicate the day to her and let her have the most memorable Mother’s Day. Bring her to her favourite restaurant(s), spend quality time together with her and your family, or just simply hang out with her and taking part in her favourite activities. Whatever it is, you need to plan your day right – for her.
Bring her flowers then take her out on a “secret trip” – a pampering spa treatment, a meal at her favourite restaurant or maybe even crafting sessions. Then, end the day off with a nice family feast. Plan your day the way you know your mother will love and appreciate. After all, she deserves it.
And we are here to help! No clue on what to do this Mother’s Day? Here is a list of 10 Fun Activities to Do in Singapore With Your Mom This Mother’s Day!
#1 AFTERNOON TEA OR BRUNCH
This seems a little generic and boring but some of our moms will definitely appreciate a galore of sweet and savoury treats and a nice warm cup of coffee or tea. Here are some places you can bring her to. However, do remember to call and book in advance to avoid disappointment at any of these place.
#2 COOKING CLASSES
Places such as ToTT and Cooklyn Inc run regular cooking lessons. If you know your mom is a wizard in the kitchen, sign up for a class for both of you for some nice bonding time and a whole day of fun.
#3 CRAFT WORKSHOPS
If your mom is more on the crafty side and enjoys activities such as jewelry making and scrapbooking, sign her up for craft workshops and get creative together with her and create some amazing artwork for keepsake!
#4 A DAY OF FEASTING
After you are done with the activities of the day, of course you have to bring her to her favourite place for a meal! Treat her to a feast of all her favourite things. You can even cook the dishes yourself; she will appreciate your sincerity a lot more.
#5 DAY OUT TO HER NOSTALGIC CHILDHOOD PLACES
Our parents will always feel nostalgic at places they used to stay at and love way back then. Take her out on a day trip to the neighbourhood they grew up in, or the place they used to always hang out at as kids. Walk around and have a nice chat with your mom as she reminisces her childhood.
#6 HAVE A FAMILY PICNIC
If the weather is cooperating on that day, whip up some of your mom’s favourite dishes and head out for a nice picnic. You can go to places such as Fort Canning Park, Chinese Garden, Marina Barrage or simply your neighbourhood park to enjoy a beautiful afternoon together with the family. Such simplicity is something moms cherish, surely!
#7 OLD SCHOOL MOVIE MARATHON
If she is a huge film buff, spend the day re-watching some old school shows and movies with her. Pick her favourites; she might have loads of stories to tell you about these films. Might be a film that she first watched with Dad, might be a film that she watched at the cinema with her first pay. It is time to discover little secrets about Mom you never knew about!
#8 SHOPPING SPREE
We often find ourselves clueless on what to get for Mom – it is either she has everything she needs, or she always tells you to not buy her anything. Yes, it is common and you are not alone. But it would be a lot easier (and fun for Mom!) to bring her on a shopping spree. Let her go crazy while she picks out whatever she wants; you pick up the tab, of course.
#9 A SPA DAY OUT
Your mom deserves only the best. And because most women love a good and pampering spa session, we say give her that well-deserved massage and dip in the jacuzzi. If you are unsure where to head to, why not try the luxurious Calla Spa?
#10 TRIP TO GARDENS BY THE BAY
If your mom prefers to get in touch with nature, bring her to Gardens By The Bay. Of gorgeous greenery and flora aplenty, it is easy to impress Mom here. Why not surprise her with a nice bouquet of flowers afterwards just to see her grin from ear to ear?
