In the era of COVID-19, holidays will feel a little different than usual, and Mother’s Day is no exception. Whether you’re at home with your mum or apart, there are plenty of ways to show her that you’re thinking about her! So even though we’re not able to have a sit-down makan session or a spa session as a Mother’s Day treat, make Mother’s Day 2020 an exceptional one with our list of 5 unique Mother Day Gifts:

If you’re at home with mum, there’s no doubt that you’re having more home-cooked meals than ever! But even for those who are far from home, keeping a record of your family recipes and digitising them is a great way to preserve special family food traditions. Interview your mum in person or on the phone under the guise of learning how to cook from her, and ask from grandparents and other family members to send over contributions. Compile your recipes and design a custom cookbook or recipe cards with easy-to-use design tools like Canva - then showcase them to your mum on the big day!

No matter how much they try to deny it, some of our mums have a soft spot for their long-running favourite tv series - whether they are hard-hitting K-dramas or western ensemble comedies! For the mum who’s been clamouring for her turn on the remote for as long as you can remember, give her the gift of her own streaming service account and install the app onto her mobile device of choice. Options include Netflix, iFlix, or Viu for more Asian-based options!

It’s likely that our first holiday memories include our parents! For the earliest years of our lives, our mothers acted as ‘tour guides’ to many destinations in life - whether on vacation or in everyday situations. Why not package those happy memories into a photobook for your mum so you can relive them together? If you’re unable to find physical photos to compile, send over digital copies and custom print them with Photobook Malaysia - and get it delivered to her doorstep!
Let’s not deny it - after this period of movement control, we’re all going to need a haircut to spruce up the way we look! Treat your mum to a hair makeover by purchasing hair salon credits to use after this period of MCO is over. Don’t forget to go the extra mile and arrange for an appointment over the phone whenever she feels like going. This way, mum will definitely have something to look forward to once MCO is over! Here are a few salons offering vouchers and pre-paid credit promos: Le Classic, Lee Kaja, and Aizu.
