“Oh my goodness!” you say to yourself, it’s Mother’s Day this Sunday and I have no idea what to get! Fret no more, PZ to the rescue with some last-minute gift ideas of what you can buy for your beloved Mother (or wife, if you have kids), before she huffs and puffs at being neglected of her one “special” day.
RITZ-CARLTON KUALA LUMPUR:
Sounds snazzy but actually it’s really rather cool: Cook for your mother this Mother’s Day at Cesar’s restaurant at The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur. A perfect gift, The Ritz-Carlton, Kuala Lumpur is offering the chance for loving sons and daughters to personally cook a gourmet dish for their mothers under direction from the expert Ritz-Carlton chefs. While cooking up something special in the kitchen, Mother will be experiencing a relaxing massage in the hotel’s gorgeous Spa. RM300++ per person from 6pm-10.30pm.
One of my favorite skincare brands, ORIGINS has some beautiful gift sets for Mother’s Day, all in keeping with using organic ingredients and 100% natural essential oils, as well as a commitment to protect the planet by their earth and animal friendly practices, packaging and policies. Some great items you could choose are the ORIGINS Ginger Burst body lotions, shower gels or the Sensory Therapy range for easy sleeping and anti-stress.
This has to be an all-time favorite when it comes to fragrances, candles and soap gift sets because of its incredibly elegant packaging. They even help you in “the art of gift giving” because receiving a Jo Malone is truly exceptional. Though you can’t find Jo Malone in Kuala Lumpur, you could order it from Singapore or through their online store. Some fabulous items include Pomegranate Noir Luxury Candle, or Fragrance Combining Starter set.
You can’t go far wrong with the classical Harrods range (located in KLCC and KLIA airport) from teas to jams and biscuits to bags and even the emblematic Harrods teddy bear.
Wanting to personalize your gift to Mother? Why not the famous Anya Hindmarch “Be a bag” where you hand over a personal photograph (family photo for example) and they will reprint it on to the bag. Highly original, uniquely personal, you can choose from various size and shapes to a weekend tote or an evening bag. Located in Pavilion and KLCC.
SIA HOME FASHION:
The first time I discovered a SIA store was in Paris and it was instant adoration. So when I realized there was a SIA in Bangsar Village II, it was like bee to honey: fantastic looking (fake) flowers, beautiful home accessories, picture frames, vases…
PRINCE COURT HOTEL:
Prince Court Hotel KL is offering a lovely Mother’s Day Brunch at their restaurant Ecuchino. She’ll be treated to a vast array of appetizers, tasty salads, fresh prawns and oysters to name a few – this buffet spread is one of the biggest in town. A special kids buffet with cake decorating, this will be a fun filled day for all the family and Grandmothers eat free (!). RM72++ per person.
So there are just a few simple ideas to brighten up Mother and show her you care.
