Mother's Day is just around the corner. With the current circuit breaker measures in place, there are limited options to celebrate Mother's Day this year as many shops are closed and getting your hands on a cake or bouquet of flowers may not be possible if you are a last minute planner.
The superwoman in our lives still deserves a treat from us, especially so during this stay-home period when they are at their busiest. There are other things that can make a woman happy besides desserts and flowers. Jewellery and not forgetting new pretty clothes makes a great gift too!
Here's a guide on choosing the perfect outfit gift for your mums:
