We are well into May now, which means that we’re perched on the precipice between the first half of the year and the second. For those feeling a tad overwhelmed by the rapid passage of time, this serves as your annual reminder that Mother’s Day is coming up on 14 May; a time-honoured celebration dedicated to the mums and mother figures in our lives. Those at a loss as to what to get the matriarch in their lives could perhaps benefit from homeware-centric presents in the vein of artisan candle holders and one-of-a-kind mahjong sets—unless, of course, you’re well-aware that your mother’s interests lie more towards the direction of aesthetical pursuits. And by this, we mean skincare, make-up, hair care, and wellness-related items designed to boost her state of mind and psyche.
Should that be the case, we at Vogue Singapore are primed to help with a comprehensive Mother’s Day gift guide comprising a curation of beauty-related gift sets and goods at various price points. Think anti-ageing skincare powerhouses designed to brighten, smooth, and reduce the appearance of fine lines; nourishing body creams and moisturisers to luxuriate in; as well as newfangled devices designed to grant efficacious results and provide extra panache to her regime. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Olfactive connoisseurs, too, are sure to benefit from the perfume picks within our roundup, which features a selection of opulent scents for every occasion. Feast your eyes on the line-up, below—and get those credit cards at the ready so you’ll be able to act on said purchases quickly.
