A good celebration doesn’t always have to cost a bomb. You might be broke, but you can be broke with style. Planning a picnic, for instance, can be a budget-friendly and equally satisfying alternative. Simply pack a few sandwiches, cut up some fruits, pick up some drinks, and ta-dah! All you need is some minimal culinary skills and you’re good to go! If you’re feeling extra fancy, feel free to bling up your picnic set up by buying some fake flowers, assorted ornaments and adorable cutlery sets from Daiso. Some recommended picnic spots are Singapore Botanic Gardens, Marina Barrage, and Fort Canning Park.

9. For once, cook her a meal instead of the opposite

Mothers are usually the ones laboriously cooking for us. From weekend brunches to elaborate family dinners, they are miraculously able to conjure up the most delicious meals even with limited time and resources. This Mother’s Day, it is finally time to repay mum for all the hard work that she has done. Whether it’s an extravagant home-cooked four-course meal or just good ol’ classic pasta, cooking up a meal for your mum is a heartwarming gesture that is sure to tug at her heartstrings. So get cooking and flaunt your culinary chops!

10. Embark on a relaxing staycation

Staycations are all the rage these days. There is no need to deal with the hassle of planning a complete itinerary – all you have to do is sit back, relax, and get comfortable! From impeccable service to swanky amenities, a hotel staycation is the perfect setting for some mother-child bonding.

One recommended staycation spot is Lexis Hibiscus Port Dickson, a 639-room resort-style hideaway, situated just a 4-hour drive from Singapore! Let your mum embrace her inner songstress at the karaoke room, or treat her to an indulgent spa treatment while you enjoy some water sports such as jet skiing or kayaking. In the evening, take a walk down Hibiscus Walk hand in hand and feast on an assortment of delicious food from the hawker stalls. Located just beside the beach, the hotel offers gorgeous views of the shimmering sea and even provides cozy private pools. Mothers can certainly look forward to spending a memorable and serene time here.

At the end of the day, regardless of what you choose to do for Mother’s Day, what matters the most is how much heart you put into it. Be it treating her to a luxurious stay in a hotel or opting for activities that won’t cost an arm and a leg, your genuine effort would surely be appreciated. A mother’s love is endless and unconditional, and as children, we should never stop showing our gratitude to these selfless heroes in our lives. Afterall, every day should be Mother’s Day.
