By Delfina Utomo and Cheryl Sekkappan

It shouldn't take Mother's Day for you to show the superwoman in your life some appreciation, but it's a great excuse to make her feel extra special anyway. Circuit breaker lockdowns and work from home arrangements have been particularly hard on mums this past year, so make it a point to do something meaningful. Besides quality time and a thoughtful gift card, here are some of the best pampering experiences and presents to properly spoil mum come May 9.
