Every mom’s a little different, you’ve got the mother who loves to cook, the mother that loves to get crafty and even the mother who always wants to be seen looking her best. We’ve compiled a list of things you can consider getting your mom this Mother’s day. We’ve got a gift idea for every type of mom, so don’t you worry!
THE STYLISH MOM
This is the type of mom who loves pampering herself. She’s the type who loves booking massages, facials and nail appointments. You’ll typically find her taking loads of selfies, showing off her new hair, nails or outfits. If you often find yourself getting dragged to pampering sessions with your mom or if you’re the one always waiting for her to get ready before heading out, this just might be the perfect gift to get your ever so stylish mom.
Nodspark’s Nail Wraps
$15 per set
1 set of nail wraps ( 16 wraps)
1 wooden stick
1 nail file
Nodspark is a local Singapore company that provides nail polish wraps that are scentless and the best part, it requires zero drying time! You will no longer need to spend tons of money at nail salons. On top of that, you can now officially say goodbye to uglily painted DIY nails and immobile hands while waiting for your polish to dry. This is the perfect gift for your ever-so-stylish mom because Nodsparks offers a wide range of designs. That allows your mom’s nails to look effortlessly stunning.
Never heard of nail polish wraps before? Well, let me explain. If you were wondering if it’s like a nail sticker, it similar but not the same. These nail polish wraps claim to last about 10 days. But after testing them out, mine lasted for three weeks with a layer of clear top coat on top. So how do they work? They basically stick onto your nails like a sticker, clinging onto the surface of your nail. Using a nail file you will need to file off the excess sticker, helping to seal the edges at the same time. Here’s a video tutorial on how the application process would be like.
Nodspark believes in creating a brand for “the woman who has many hats to wear; the career woman with limited time; the stay at home moms with few opportunities to head out; the fun ladies who dig pretty nails; or simply those who can’t paint in a straight line to save their lives.
THE FOODIE MOM:
This is the mom who loves all things food. She’s regularly spotted giving reviews on different cafes, kopitiams (coffee stalls), and restaurants. Occasionally, you might stumble across some photos of her home bakes or innovative cooking hacks on your Facebook feed. The only con to living with her? Well, you’ll be consistently well fed and the word “diet” will probably never fall in your list of vocabulary. The perfect gift for these types of moms is simple. Food can never go wrong.

It’s only available for collection or delivery on the 10th-12th of May 2019.
THE EVERYDAY MOM:
This is the most common type of mom. She’s the one that holds multiple roles; a businesswoman, a friend, a wife and most importantly, a mother. Having to juggle so many different roles all at once can be tough and that’s why I have so much respect for the everyday mom. Finding a present that isn’t a bouquet of flowers can be tough but not to worry we’ve found the perfect gift that is both unique, stylish and useful!
1 Customisable phone case
Flonecase provides beautifully handcrafted phone cases that are 100% handmade using press dried flowers. This means that no two phone cases will ever be the same, making each piece unique and special to your mother.
The ordering process is super convenient, just hop on to their website, choose your phone model, choose your the design you want on your case and your preferred type of casing. Personally, I prefer the hard casing because it states on their website that the soft casing does turn yellow after a few months. To top it all off, there is even a complimentary customisation portion where you can have your mother’s initials placed on the case in Gold blocked letters.
With her tight and busy schedule, she’s probably always on her phone so why not help protect and beautify something that’s special and important to her. No matter how busy she gets, a part of you will always stay with her, right by her side.
Stop giving your mom the same thing every year! A bouquet of flowers does not suffice. Step-up your game this year and get her something that she’ll love. Here’s a little life hack get her a gift that suits her, something personal. Do this and I promise she’ll be cooking you your favourite fried rice every week!
