Celebrations still go on during the Circuit Breaker, albeit on a different scale. No pomp and circumstance this year, and definitely no big hugs if you are not from the same household! While you can’t treat your mum or wife to a decadent meal or a spa getaway, how about bringing her the goodies instead? Mums always appreciate a nice gesture from their families, be it a video call, a homemade card or something more indulgent.
We got the list for you to celebrate the women who are the reasons for our existence.

2. For an Easy Selection
Amazon has a wide selection of gift options for those who may be at a loss regarding gifting.
How about a shoulder massager that would take away mummy’s aches? After all, she has been juggling hard keeping the children engaged at home, preparing meals and trying her best to complete her work. A good massage takes away some stress.
Given the noise levels at home, it would be nice to enjoy some peace with wireless noise-cancelling earphones. I would love these. (Hint, husband.)

What ALL Mums Really Want for Mothers’ Day
Gifts are definitely a nice-to have and wonderful gestures of love and care. But even if there isn’t a physical token of appreciation, mums would all love a little appreciation. Some simple words of concern like “how can I help?” or “how are you?” and even a good twenty minutes of peace and personal space would be welcome.
Happy Mothers’ Day to all! I hope all of you get to have a good nap and a nice long bath amidst the long and exhausting day.
