For those who are still wondering “when exactly is Mother’s Day?” Well, it falls on May 10th this year. In most nations, it is celebrated on the second Sunday of May and Mother’s Day in Singapore is no different. Before we carry on, mark that down somewhere! We don’t wanna be scrambling around in panic when Mother’s Day comes around next year 😉
If there’s anyone who deserves a present every once in a while, surely it has to be the moms of this world. Let’s be honest here, we weren’t exactly angels growing up now were we? Our moms had to deal with us through every stage of our lives and it probably wasn’t the easiest of tasks. Okay, maybe I’m projecting just a little bit. In all seriousness, motherhood is almost never plain sailing. The expectations weighed upon a mother’s shoulders are unfathomable. The least that we can do is to let them know how appreciative we are, and remind them of the significant role they play in our lives.
If you’re still contemplating on what to get her, we have some great last minute Mother’s Day gift ideas. Paying homage to that one special woman in our lives should come as a given. If that doesn’t come easily to you, maybe 2020 would be a good year to start. Stay home, scroll through the webs and check out these Mother’s Day gift ideas.
Kueh Ho Jiak [SOLD OUT]
The sweet treats from Kueh Ho Jiak are painstakingly handcrafted daily, using only natural ingredients. They aim to create kuehs that are as visually appealing as they are delightful to taste. Kueh Ho Jiak encourages us all to send a box of love to mom as a Mother’s Day present! In that box will include yummy kuehs such as Mung bean Ang Ku Kueh, Sweet Potatoes Ondeh and Colourful Lapis. Also, you can include a personalised Mother’s Day message in said box. If you go for the premium box, it even comes with a bouquet of pink roses and gerbera flowers! They are currently sold out for Mother’s Day orders, but you can still get a kueh platter that includes Singapore’s first and only Hei Bee Hiam Ang Ku Kueh for other delivery dates here!
The Flower Practice
The Flower Practice is a contemporary online floristry business that believes in creativity and uniqueness. Each creation bears its own unique story and history while also ensuring a high level of quality. With Mother’s Day just round the corner, they’ve come up with a selection of dried floral beauties for you and your beautiful moms! The great thing about dried florals is that they are timeless – dried flowers can retain their beauty for a long period of time. Also, you will be spoilt for choice! From Pink Fantasy to Wilderness, or Budding Blooms, the options are almost endless.
Petite Pétale is the outcome of a shared vision among three best friends who always wanted to start their own floral boutique. Whatever the special occasion or celebration is, Petite Pétale hopes to create wonderful memories through their floral designs. They’ve come up with two special Mother’s Day packages this year with a focus on hydrangea and rose. A beautifully arranged Mother’s Day bouquet from Petite Pétale will surely bring a smile to your mom on her special day!
If you know your mom would appreciate freshly baked bread as a gift, 25Grams might just have the right gift for her! 25Grams is an eclectic bakery that crafts soulful bespoke cakes, bread as well as desserts. They’ve also got a whole host of vegan and gluten-free options available! The adorably titled “Care Bear Picnic Box For Mum” is what they’ve concocted for Mother’s Day this year! You can expect an assortment of freshly baked bread, tea cakes and spreads in that picnic box for mom. Since having a picnic at the park isn’t feasible these days, why not bring the picnic to your home for a change?
Bread, Beer & Brez’n
Bread, Beer & Brez’n are a German style biergarten located at the top of Phoenix Park, surrounded by beautiful nature. Unfortunately, we’ll all have to wait a little while before experiencing the full ambience of Bread, Beer & Brez’n. That doesn’t mean we have to wait when it comes to trying their food! The Circuit Breaker Survival Package is a great care package to consider for Mother’s Day. Think pizzas, sausages, potato salad and sauerkraut – simply mouthwatering. There’s even the option to mix and match amazing German beer. Your mom (and probably the entire family) will be very grateful for this feast!
The Tea Story
The Tea Story is a Singaporean brand recognized globally for their exquisite range of healthy, organic and caffeine-free loose leaf teas. Their teas, crafted with fresh fruits and flowers, are packed with vitamins and antioxidants, making its benefits go far beyond its exquisite colour and flavour. The Tea Story Wellness Gift Set includes three flavours of tea – Detoxtea, Serenitea, Immunitea – for your mom to try!
We, at Delegate, have started an initiative to support vulnerable individuals and families affected by the COVID-19 situation. During this circuit breaker period, for every Mother’s Day gift purchased on Delegate, SGD1 will go to The Courage Fund by National Council of Social Service (NCSS). Do feel free to spread the word and support this cause!

Another initiative we’ve started involves the wedding industry. This global pandemic we are in has brought a host of challenges to everyone involved in said industry. From brides-to-be to wedding vendors, these are unprecedented times. We want to be part of the solution and that is why we started this Facebook group – Save Wedding Vendors. We aim to build a community of helpful vendors and members. You can post your queries, ask for recommendations and share promotions or reviews as well.
