Introduce your mother to Korean fashion brands with Alice Martha. This women’s bag brand has impressed many with its stylish and versatile styles perfect for everyday wear! We love this classic and spacious Alice Martha Shoulder Poppy Bag (available on alicemartha.sg) which comes with a detachable strap so she can change up her style anytime she wants. Help the boss lady in your life pick her outfit and match it with this soft leather bag for a classic, timeless look!
2. Silk Jammies
Your mother deserves some snuggly warm comfort. Get her a pair of silk, satin pyjamas (available on iambeautiful.sg) in blue, green, pink or grey. She’ll love the luxurious feel of these jammies after a long tiring day and the best thing is she’ll look like every bit like the queen she is in them! If she’s shy of wearing them, then get a pair for yourself and wear them with her! There’s nothing cuter than a matching mother-daughter outfit.
Mother’s Day gift ideas for your MIL:
3. Vintage Toaster And Kettle Set
Bowl your mother-in-law over with some of the best kitchen appliance brands. If your MIL appreciates old-school designs then she’ll love this toaster and electric kettle set (available on Odette).

It’s time for her to live the good life while you handle the daily stresses of running the household. If she protests against having such a big piece of furniture in her home, then simply fold it and stow it away for times when she wants to use it! For days when she’s enjoying the chair, introduce her to these addictive Netflix Asian dramas — you’ll become her favourite in no time!
