Mother’s Day 2020 is just around the corner! Falling on 10 May, next week Sunday, Mother’s Day is the day that mothers are celebrated and honoured.
In Singapore, Mother’s Day is typically one of the busiest days of the year for celebrations and gifts.
However the Covid-19 Circuit Breaker (CB) means that we can’t go out for meals, or celebrate in person if we stay in different households.
The CB also means that it is not as easy to get a gift and present to our mums as we are encouraged to stay at home. In addition, shops (other than essential services) are closed until 1 June 2020.
Regardless of all these disruptions, there are still meaningful ways to show our mothers how much we love them, even if it’s a remote/virtual option.
You can source your gift based on what your mother likes and also support a cause, order online to deliver to her, and schedule a video call to virtually have a meal or even just a chat to catch up with her.
Here are some Mother’s Day 2020 gift ideas you can consider.
