If your mum’s a regular busy-bee, she’ll adore this Panasonic Facial Steamer. It not only offers a moisturising DIY facial, but it also saves precious time. A simple push of the button releases a stream of hot steam for six minutes, which can be used pre-makeup for a soft base or for deep cleansing after a long work day.
Besides helping to remove all the dirt and grime on her skin, it’s small enough to place on her dressing table for convenience’s sake.
Buy the Panasonic Facial Steamer from Lazada ($156.95).
2. BRAND’S Bird’s Nest for good health
It’s an adage that’s recited again and again: bird’s nest is good for us...but why?

BRAND’S has an exclusive Mother’s Day Box that comes with 12 bottles of Bird’s Nest with Rock Sugar.
BRAND’S particular brew of bird’s nest is entirely made without any preservatives or artificial flavouring - 100% bird’s nest with a touch of rock sugar for a pleasantly sweet taste.

Fumbling in your bag for your set of house keys then realising it’s not there - it’s all happened to everyone at some point. It might be a common predicament, but don’t let your mum go through all the unnecessary stress. Tile Mate is a nifty little device that she can easily loop with her keys. It’s nothing like an ordinary key fob, instead, it’s a Bluetooth tracker that helps you find things.
If your mum’s searched everywhere and she can’t find her keys, she simply needs to press the button on the app and it’ll make a loud chirping noise. It also shows the item’s “last place seen” and helps find her lost phone - just press Tile Mate device twice and your phone will start beeping.

If she’s in the habit of changing her bags regularly, then this will make her life a whole lot easier. All your mum has to do is fill up the organiser with her things before popping it into a bag of her choice.
The pockets vary in size so that she can neatly arrange everything she has, from tissue packs to sunscreen bottles. They’re light yet structured, so her handbag wouldn’t be sagging at the bottom.

A massage is always a treat, but it doesn’t get any better than with an Omron Electronic Pulse Massager that knows exactly where your pressure points are. To help with aching muscles, this clever machine comes with 12 modes so your mum can just lean back and sigh in relief as her pressure points are massaged.
It works by sticking on a few pads onto sore areas - don’t worry, they’re washable - and she has the choice between modes of tapping, kneading, pushing, or rubbing. But it’s not just about the physical kneading.
This massager uses the TENS method - a cheem phrase that just means that these frequency impulses will trigger her body’s natural pain relief mechanisms, like endorphins and improved blood flow.

Everyone wants to be fit and healthy, but not everyone wants to put on wearable tech. Consider getting a Nokia Body + Scale - she wouldn’t need a fitness tracker to track her weight and health.
That means body fat, water percentages, along with muscle and bone mass readings will be sent to her Health Mate app via Bluetooth or WiFi. This scale’s great for the long run, especially since there’ll be a useful backlog of data that your mum can check to make sure her health and fitness levels are all stable.
Buy the Nokia Body + Scale from Apple ($169).
