Racking your brains for a Mother’s Day gift this coming Sunday? Hoping to appease your mother but unsure it will be able to take her by surprise? Afraid that flowers and perfumes are run-of-the-mill? Fret not because we have listed unique gifts ideas for all budgets and for all types of mothers.
1. For the homemaker mother:
They often say that being a mother is the world’s toughest job because you literally have to do a million tasks at the same time and they will never be completed. You have to take care of the children, prepare meals for the family, keep the house spick-and-spank, be the children’s lifesaver, get their clothing washed and list goes on. For the homemakers, it is time to give them a pampering massage session at Feet Haven Reflexology. Ranging from a soothing shoulder and neck massage to a therapeutic full body massage, this place is definitely a haven for mothers.
Feet Haven Reflexology
Budget: $15 – $128, with special add-on options such as scraping (gua sha)
Duration that keeps her in haven: 15 mins to 120 mins

2. For the health-conscious mother:
Ever heard of the benefits of lemon water? It is as easy as adding fresh lemon juice to your water and consuming it daily.
According to Organic Facts, it helps to sooth a sore throat, treat kidney stones, promote healthy livers, aids in digestion, cures constipation, boosts immune system, helps in weight loss, provides relief from rheumatism, improves a general deficiency of Vitamin C and lowers stress and blood pressure.
The exposure of a lemon diffused bottle is growing steadily in Singapore and you can purchase a Zing Fruit Diffused bottle from Bento Maker: zingbottles.miiduu.com
Duration that keeps her healthy: Years
Its latest addition is the 480ml Zing Fruit Diffused Bottle that is handy and comes with the new straw function for easy usage. Having used it for outdoor sports, work trips and leisure outings, its versatile feature is definitely a winner over ordinary bottles. Besides lemons, other fruits such as apples, strawberries and oranges can be squeezed and added into your water bottle. The health effects are as good as that of lemon water, if not better. Its rubberised grip ensures that the bottle is kept in tact and can be brought out for any occasion with its user-friendly handle. Not only that, it uses food-grade Tritan plastic and it is non-bleaching and toxic-free. This means safe usage even after a long period of time!
The 800ml bottle is currently out of stock but its 480ml addition is the most popular purchase among their customers to date and they are offering a 20% discount for all The Influencer Media readers when you quote “kim”. Valid till 11th May in conjunction with Mother’s Day. Enjoy!
3. For the mother that wants to have a good laugh:
What’s better than enjoying a local comedy show with your mother? Catch Singapore Stripped (R18), a SG50 show where it features the nation’s milestone with a hint of humour.
