6. Her own personalised skincare routine
Yours is an innovative local skincare company, focusing on high-quality, sustainable products that are tailored to individual clients’ needs. Judging from these rave reviews, their products really work. Best of all, you can give your mom a full set of skincare products (includes a 30ml day cream, 30ml night cream, 15ml face serum and 10ml eye serum) without having to do any research on her skincare needs.
With gift sets (US$99, SGD$140), Yours will guide your recipient through an online skin quiz, then formulate and deliver the set to her door, complete with a handwritten note that you can personalise. Delivery is free, but Yours requires 2-5 working days to process and deliver the gift.
7. To help her stay active
The Garmin vívosmart 4 ($199) is a great all-in-one fitness tracker. Designed to look like an activity band, it’s sleek, lightweight and waterproof. At the same time, it’s packed with lots of smartwatch and fitness features like notification alerts, GPS, and activity tracking (steps, distance, sleep, calories burned and more), helping your mom to monitor and meet her fitness goals.
Out of all its functions, a useful new feature is stress level tracking, which uses all-day heart rate monitoring to estimate the wearer’s stress levels (based on heart rate variability). This can help to increase awareness of potential stressors, so users can work on reducing or avoiding them.
