Are you about to get that new microwave or rice cooker for mum for Christmas? Put that out of your cart right now. Why would mother want something that is only going to make her do MORE work (like cooking for the whole family), or something that really benefits everyone instead? We’re not saying you can’t purchase a kitchen appliance, but let’s move away from the conventional idea into the thoughtful and sweet ones.

Here are some Christmas gift ideas that would pamper the important woman who gave you life.

Sometimes your mother needs to ‘Netflix and chill’ too, and in her way it means taking a break from all the daily chores to binge-watch her favourite K-dramas and soap operas. Get her a Netflix subscription, which boasts thousands of titles so she never runs out. You even get the first month free! This gift kills two birds with one stone because who are we kidding, you are so going to ‘borrow’ her account.

Remind your mother how beautiful she is with the Pandora Floating Locket Necklace.

This is perfect for when she doesn’t want a chunky bracelet hindering her daily activities, but still wants to keep a shiny remembrance of you around her neck for when you are not around. Get a traveller to buy this for you, as the locket is cheaper in Australia than in Singapore! Read more about it here.
