Treat your Mom like a Queen

Mother's Day is this week, and the pressure is on! This Mother's Day on 13 May 2018 (Sunday), show how much you appreciate all she has done for you. This can be as simple as a scarf or as elaborate as a trip. Whatever you choose to give her, put some thought into it and give your mother something she will love.
Mother's Day is fast approaching, but do you know how Mother's Day came about? It started in 1908 when an American woman, Anna Jarvis decided to hold a memorial for her departed mother in West Virginia. She then pushed for Mother's Day to be established as a national holiday. Her campaign soon spread internationally after 1914 and now we celebrate the second Sunday in the month of May as Mother's Day.
Most of us like to present our moms with a gift they will cherish and enjoy. Here are some simple gift ideas and gestures you can consider for your mom! You can also drop by SAFRA to enjoy some of the member's perks and promotions just for Mother's Day.
The truth is, there's no foolproof formula when it comes to buying Mother's Day gifts, but here's what we recommend! You can plan a whole day filled with activities at SAFRA. Here are just some of the special things you can do with your mom on Mother's Day.
SAFRA Toa Payoh
Drop by SAFRA Toa Payoh for the Mumpreneurs Bazaar on 12 & 13 May. Treat your mom to creative handmade beauty items, wellness products and craft activities. You can also bring your younger siblings along to enjoy some live performances from the cast of Badamanu.
After a day of tiring Zumba at SAFRA Jurong with your mom, treat her to an indulgent spa session at Masego! What better way than to catch up with your mom over a back rub at the spa. Don't forget to present your SAFRA Dependent card at the Customer Service Counter to register for the complimentary Masego Spa session. Limited to first 50 SAFRA Dependent members.
SAFRA Mount Faber
Change things up from the usual Mother's Day gifts or outings and celebrate fitness programmes. Nothing says bonding like taking a class together. Drop by SAFRA Mount Faber and groove to high-energy music and work off that stress with Zumba, Pop Pilates and plenty more!
After working out, stay back for a health talk organised by Breast Cancer Foundation and survivors. If your mom is aged 40 and above, she can go for a free mammobus screening right at SAFRA Mount Faber. Limited slots available. Sign up now at our customer service counter, through mysafra.safra.sg or via our mSAFRA app.
Set on Mother's Day weekend, Blogtique Weekend is a 3-day (11 - 13 May) event that gathers local bloggers and young entrepreneurs to showcase and sell their products and services. Bring your mom along and take part in various workshops such as henna making workshops. A little retail therapy can also be a great way to spend some time with your mom!
Just for SAFRA members, check out these merchant promotions and pamper the special ladies in your life with these sweet deals!
Don't forget, when you spend at the vendor outlets at SAFRA Jurong and Yishun or present your SAFRA membership card at SAFRA Toa Payoh this Mother's Day- you can redeem a free carnation for your mom.
Happy Mother's Day from all of us at SAFRA.
