With Mother’s Day just around the corner, the stress and pressure on finding her the perfect gift(s) starts to creep up on you.
Getting her a gift is one thing, but getting her a gift that she might actually use is no small feat.
But we’ve got your back covered, here are some ideas that you can give your mom that won’t lie away in a tucked corner:
1. Coupon Book
A coupon book is super cute an easy way to save up, you can put so many things in a personalized coupon: Helping with the chores, gifts, Home-cooked meals, etc.
By shoes, we mean shoes that are comfortable (flats, slippers, etc.) Growing up, our mothers knew how to make total use of a single item. And I’m sure those slippers weren’t just meant for wearing, so get her a fresh pair.
Tip: Try Zalora, if you’re really looking to spare a dime, as well as quick-delivery.
3. A Trip Overseas
If you’re doing well (financially) and you want to give something that your mom will remember, then plan an all-expense paid trip for you and your mom. And I say this on-behalf of all Malaysian-moms AND Malaysians, who would say ‘No’ to free stuff?
Tip: Try AirAsia, they have really cheap fares on destinations ranging from Penang, Bangkok to Lanzhou!
4. Fresh Bed Sheets
A true Malaysian mom knows how to invest in things that are in for the long-run. Longevity is not only a thing they pray for, but it’s a necessity in products too. So why not some high-quality bed-sheets that she can lay on and have a good sleep?
5. Weekend Staycation
Can’t afford to leave the country due to clashing schedules? A staycation is just the answer for you! An escape from her everyday-surroundings could be just what she needs to unwind.
Tip: The Everly Hotel Putrajaya is just far enough from the hustle-bustle of the city for a beautiful yet affordable staycation. If you must know, what makes The Everly Hotel Putrajaya a different stay that stands out from your usual pool, gym and café facilities is definitely their in-house rope course specifically for team building, which is an excellent activity to foster communication!
Plus, if you’re looking to get a crowd of your aunties or mom’s friends that you’d like to celebrate Mother’s Day with, this could be something fun that you can do to that not only makes your stay at The Everly Hotel Putrajaya unforgettable, but a fun one too! Think about the quality time you get to spend with your mom, bonding over pillow talk, and then waking up leisurely to a scrumptious breakfast spread.
Seriously, what’s not to love?
6. Spa Day
Give your mom a day of pampering that’s been long-overdue, help her relax with a nice massage or a nice manicure/pedicure. You can even do it in the comfort of your own home, by setting up candles, preparing some homemade fruit tea, and a personal masseuse.
Tip: Looking for places? Try Ozmosis Health & Day Spa!
We know every Malaysian mom is a secret sorceress- they manage to put us in our place while looking like they haven’t aged a day. With that being said, they have a few tricks up their sleeves in their skincare regime and why not buy something that they would use every day (and night)?
Tip: We recommend NSJ Stylish Store’s newest product, Pure Rose Essence Gift Set. This is the perfect gift for your mom on Mother’s Day as not only is it a product that uses rose essence that will leave her feeling refreshed and smelling good. It also comes with a customizable-worded wooden box ! If that doesn’t make her feel special, we don’t know what will!
Their beautifully ribbon-wrapped box also comes together with a portable mini mirror and 30 pieces of mask sheets. Talk about beauty in a box!

Most importantly, Mother’s Day is just another day. You don’t need no special occasions to shower your with mom hugs and kisses. Remember, no gifts is greater than being present whenever you spend time with your mom.
