Mom's the word

Mom's the word

All the moms out there;
Selfless, giving, amazing.
We celebrate you.

Whether you have a wonderful mother (or mother figure) in your life or you’re a pretty amazing mom yourself, Mothers' Day is the perfect reason to take time to appreciate the strong resilient women in our lives. But showing gratitude shouldn't be limited to a once a year affair. Big gestures can be nice but often, it's the little things that count.

Here's our take on five simple things you can do whenever, to show mom you love her.



1. Cook for her

Mom's always been there for us with her comforting food and soothing words. It's time to return the favour. Not quite the culinary talent? You can't go (too) wrong with breakfast food. Think sunny side ups or scrambled eggs, with buttered toast and fresh fruit juice. Breakfast in bed might be a cliché but it's always cute.



2. Write a heartfelt message/note/poem

When was the last time you told mom you loved her? Sometimes words don't come easy, and we often forget how powerful they can be. Take the time to write a heartfelt note or perhaps even pen a poem. It's not as hard as it sounds. Exhibit A: the haiku at the top of this post. 3 lines; 5 syllables, 7, then 5. Simple and sweet.


3. Spend quality time together

We live in a busy world. And sometimes we push time with our loved ones to meet deadlines, catch up with work/studies and just be an all round busy person. Put aside time (schedule it in if you have to) to spend some quality time with mom. Put down your phone and talk to her, go out on the town with her, take a stroll with her, really listen to her. Just be present, sometimes that is all it takes.


4. Put together a bouquet for her

Skip the store bought bouquets and make one of your own. So it might not look as perfect but that's the beauty of it, as it is with so many things in life. We love the flower selection at Tiong Bahru market for its variety. Pick her favourite blooms, put in your favourite ones, bundle them with flowers that you love the meaning of. Put thought into it, because that's what counts.


5. Gift a thoughtful gift

Gifts don't always have to be big, flashy and expensive. It can be something she mentioned in passing that she needed, or something you saw that reminded you of her or just something you thought she would like. Small mother-of-pearl trinkets are classy and punny, getting twinning outfits that you both love is cute. Gift small, give often. It's always the thought behind it that matters.
