#AskMom: What do Moms really want for Mother’s Day?


3.5 min read

We’ve all done the cliché – breakfast in bed, a bouquet of flowers, a heartfelt card made with love or an expensive piece of jewellery that we know they would like. 💝

But what do our Moms really want on this special day? The GetGo team asked our moms to be completely honest with us on the perfect gift for Mother’s Day — and the answers we got really surpassed our expectations.

We thought we’d compile them for GetGoers who are thinking of what to do when Mother’s Day comes around. Here’s what our Moms really want for Mother’s Day:

1. Time to relax

Being a Mom is a full-time job, with no leave or OT pay. 😂

Although she may seem like Superwoman in your eyes, your Mom probably would really appreciate a day off just to wind down. Take it to the next level by treating her like royalty with a mumcation for two at Fairmont Hotel — breakfast, afternoon tea and a well-deserved Aromatherapy Relaxation Massage included. 💆‍♀️

Great news! This package is eligible for SingapoRediscovers vouchers redemption.

2. Quality time with loved ones

When was the last time you actually spent uninterrupted, quality time with your Mom? This is your chance to take the day off, bring your Mom out on a special date and do something fun together!

We have the perfect activity in mind — a baking class, courtesy of Baker’s Brew Studio, where you can learn to bake and decorate delicious cupcakes. What better way to bond and catch up than over a spread of sweet treats? 😋

3. A fun day out

As we’re going about our daily routine, we often find ourselves in need of a pick-me-up to keep us motivated. Our Moms are no different! Sometimes they just need a quick getaway from Mom life with a fun-packed outing. 🙆

Plan an exciting day out for your Mom this Mother’s Day — invite her friends and/or family along for a guaranteed day of laughter and high spirits. 😆

4. Someone to help out with the chores

Could it really be that simple? The answer is yes!

The truth is, your Mom probably doesn’t expect you to do anything extravagant for Mother’s Day. All she might want is to have someone to drive her around for her weekly grocery run and sort out the laundry. 🧺

Whether you already help out around the house daily or you rarely have the time to, we’re guessing that your Mom would really appreciate the extra hand. 🙌

5. A fulfilling dinner

They say that the way to someone’s heart is through their stomach, and we couldn’t agree more! After a long day, nothing feels better than a satisfying meal prepared just for you.

Take your Mom out on a dinner date: let her get all glammed up, drive her to her favorite restaurant and treat her like a queen by letting her order up a feast!

Alternatively, if your Mom prefers to stay home, you can cook up a storm with her and simulate your own episode of MasterChef. 😆 Don’t forget to help out with cleaning up afterwards!

As you can see, it’s really the thought that counts. Drop your Mom a text and #AskMom what she really wants this Mother’s Day! ✨
