Shopping for mum never ever gets easier. Before you make that frantic scramble to the flower shop, give Taobao a chance instead!
We’ve compiled a list of luxurious gifts that mum will love – and that you may end up buying for yourself anyway.
Luxury Silk Bed Spreads – because Mum deserves to sleep like a queen.
Remember all those sleepless nights she spent waiting up for you? Pay it back with the gift of luxurious, undisturbed sleep!
These silk 4-in-one bed spread sets go for a song – the same would cost you a minimum of S$200 and above back in Singapore.

Item: Patterned silk quilt cover with cotton bed sheet and pillow cases
Cost: ¥490.00 = SGD102.68
An Aroma Diffuser – because that beautiful house she’s keeping should smell lovely too.
See those wrinkles on mum’s face? You’re probably responsible for a number of them. An aroma diffuser will help to keep mum’s skin moist and supple as she watches her favourite Korean drama.
The lamps featured only require a few drops of aromatherapy oil, which makes it relatively safe.

Everlasting Flowers – because who doesn’t love flowers?

Well, these flower boxes last FOREVER. Now she’ll have something to admire, even when the yearly drought hits us (thank you #globalwarming).
