5 Things You Can Do To Celebrate Mother’s Day At Home
From serving brunch in bed to giving her a spa day, here are five wonderful ways to spoil that special woman in your life
Brunch in bed
Start the weekend by letting her sleep in and then surprising her with brunch in bed. Order delivery from Dough & Dolce, whose brunch offerings such as homemade sourdough topped with fluffy scrambled eggs and chunks of crabmeat drizzled in chilli oil, classic chipotle grilled cheese sandwich with roasted pepper and tomato soup, and buttercream chilli clams with sourdough toast, are as good as they look in pictures.
If you want to make an impression by putting in a little more effort, get the Mother's Day tote bag kit from Provisions to make homemade sourdough crepes or pancakes.
Order Dough & Dolce here and WhatsApp Provisions at +6011 2366 5358 to pre-order.
Watch Netflix together

Celebrating Mother’s Day in quarantine is the perfect excuse to spend some quality time in front of the TV screen. Get into your most comfortable PJs and settle into the comfy couch to watch Netflix, which has plenty of great new shows this month including Michelle Obama's documentary Becoming, Great British Bake Off winner Nadiya Hussain's cooking show Nadiya's Time To Eat and Mindy Kaling-produced comedy about an Indian-American teenager Never Have I Ever. Movies? Catch such classics as The Darkest Hour, Lady Bird, The Breakfast Club and Moulin Rouge.
Plan a day of wellness activities
Start with morning yoga with The Flow Studio via Zoom (May 10 | 10am - 10.45am), followed by meditation with the help of Calm, a popular app for sleep, meditation and relaxation. Then draw her a bath using Herbivore Botanicals Calm Bath Salts with its soothing blend of ylang ylang and vanilla, and suggest a nice, detoxifying scrub with Handmade Heroes Coffee Scrub.
Cap the day by lighting a Neroli & Ylang Ylang-scented candle from Lilin + Co to set a soothing atmosphere for a home facial using Root Remedies Rose Quartz Face Roller and Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Mask packed with ultra-hydrating botanical oils.

Throw her a surprise virtual party
Gather a few of her favourite people on Zoom and surprise her with a tea party. For the nibbles, check out Troika Sky Dining's teatime spread comprising cream puffs, sandwiches and mini scones or a little farm on the hill's Mother's Day basket treats.
Cook her a nice dinner
It’s time to put those quarantine recipes to the test and give mom a break in the kitchen. We love Chrissy Teigen's dinner recipes: 3-Cheese Lobster Artichoke Dip appetiser, Spicy Pepper Crusted Ribeye main course and, for dessert, Chocolate Pecan Brownies.
If you're challenged in this department, there's an easier route: get the easy-to-assemble meal kit (consisting of beef ragout pasta, ox Japanese curry and chocolate souffle) from Entier French Dining, complete with step-by-step instructions. This Mother's Day, Entier is throwing in its Burnt Basque Cheesecake and a little card for mom with a minimum spend of RM300.
