Mothers are practical creatures. While we all love a pretty table accessory, mums are likely to say, "Why you waste money to buy this? I can make for you."
Which is why, when it comes to Mother's Day gifts, it's important to get one that she'll actually use.
Here are 10 we reckon your Singaporean mother would love.

Another prepackaged gift, this one contains delicious tea and biscuits for her to enjoy while watching her favourite Korean drama.
