Being stuck at home isn’t an excuse to forgo gifts for the most beautiful woman in your life. We picked out 10 GST-free gifts that mumsies would love!
While you’re cooped up at home, it’s a great time to start window shopping for gifts for mumsie! We’ve compiled a list of GST-free gifts from the iShopChangi catalogue, which is now available even to non-travellers. Yes, you read that right – you can now get your hands of GST-free products even when you’re not flying!
If that’s not sweet enough of a deal, the minimum spend for free delivery has also been lowered from S$380 to S$59 until the end of June 2020.
To top things off, YouTroopers also get to enjoy 7% off (capped at S$15) with no minimum spend. How’s that for a triple threat good deal, huh? You know we’ve always got your back. 😎 Now let’s check out the 10 GST-free gifts that’s perfect for Mother’s Day:
1. Foreo Luna 3
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: Mumsies would probably want a break to take care of herself after taking care of everyone in the house, and that’s where Foreo’s Luna 3 comes in.
This amazing contraption is both a facial cleansing device and a massager. The side with the bristles is where you’d let the Luna 3 work mum’s facial cleanser into her skin, while the ribbed side is for it to massage mum’s skin after her facial wash.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$255 and this is one of iShopChangi’s best-sellers – for a good reason!
2. Clarins Extra-Firming Mask 75ml
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: Mothers are understandably superstitious and tend to distrust ingredients they can’t pronounce. Thankfully, Clarins’ Extra-Firming Mask 75ml main selling point is that it uses natural ingredients to achieve youthful and firm skin. Containing green banana and lemon thyme extract, it promises to reverse the effects of aging after continued use. Even after 10 minutes you’ll feel that your skin feels plump and moisturised. Use this with Foreo Luna 3 for best results!
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$88.54 is a small price to pay for a sliver of youth.
3. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask 100ml 4 Piece Set
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: Mums don’t get enough credit for all the work they do to keep the house running. They’re usually up super early to get everything ready – do the laundry, make breakfast, clean the house a little, get the kids up for school – and she’s probably running low on sleep to do all of that.
Well, Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask won’t magically solve her sleep deprivation (hint: help mum out to lessen her burden) but it will help her with her nightly routine that ought to relax her before she sleeps. The better skin is just a minor plus.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$119.04, but there’s four of them so it can last four months!
4. Sulwhasoo Snowise Brightening Set
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: This stuff is like, really expensive yo. Sulwhasoo’s Snowise Brightening Set, particularly the serum, has rave reviews about its effectiveness and a 50ml bottle of the magic potion is S$268! If you get every item in the set separately, the average price is around S$100 each – and there’s seven pieces in one set. Granted, you’re getting mini versions with this set, but it’s still worthwhile because you get to try every single item and if you like it, you can just get the travel set.
But wait! This isn’t about you, this is about Mother’s day, and it’s all about mum. You can tell mum that this stuff’s really expensive and she’d chide you for buying such an expensive product but deep down, secretly, she’s gonna love it because it’s expensive – and she deserves it.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$120.71, way cheaper than S$100 per item.
5. Furla Metropolis S Satchel
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: You know how every mum has their favourite bag, no matter how raggedy it is, they’ll still insist on using that bag? Well, this chic Furla Metropolis S Satchel bag isn’t gonna replace that but it’ll make a fine addition to her wardrobe for when she goes for family events.
The real benefit isn’t the bag itself, it’s the fact that mum can boast to her sisters and brothers or friends that YOU got this expensive bag for her. Suddenly, you’re the envy of all your relatives.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$350! Okay, so this one will overshoot the cap of S$15 if we apply the 7% off, so you’ll only get S$15 off. But hey, money saved is money saved!
6. Fossil Rose Gold Leather Ladies’ Watch ES3262
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: The colour of Fossil Rose Gold Leather Ladies’ Watch is really pretty. Now, watches might have a bad reputation as a gift idea because it might signify that you want that person’s time to be done. But think of it this way: a watch is a physical manifestation of time and you can express your appreciation for the time your mother has put into raising you.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$130.01 after the discount, which is really a small price to pay. You can always earn money, but you can never earn time.
7. Chow Tai Fook 999.9 Pure Gold Pendant with Nephrite – 5 Element (Wood) R14667
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: Ah, Chow Tai Fook’s 999.9 Pure Gold Pendant with Nephrite… Jade is a stone that represents goodness, preciousness, and beauty – which also perfectly describes mumsie. Without these three qualities while she raised you, can you imagine the kind of person you would be today? I can’t, and I bet you couldn’t either.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: S$111.60 after the discount. Small price to pay for beauty, and it’s wrapped with 999 gold!
8. Philips HX9312/04 Diamond Clean Rechargeable Toothbrush
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: Most Singaporean mothers are utility-minded and what better way than to get something that she’ll use everyday? The Philips HX9312/04 Diamond Clean Rechargeable Toothbrush takes an elevation here by providing you a dentist-approved electric toothbrush that can go up to 32,000 strokes a minute, ensuring that the most beautiful woman in the world gets the most pearlescent smile ever.
As an added bonus, it comes with a glass that you can rinse your mouth with AND charge the toothbrush. If you need to travel, there’s also a charging case included!
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: That’s gonna be S$232.
9. Braun Silk-épil 9 SensoSmart™ 9/880 Epilator Rose Gold – Cordless Wet & Dry Epilator With 7 Extras
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: There are so many benefits to using the Braun Silk-épil 9 SensoSmart™ epilator instead of a shaver for personal grooming. Sure, it might hurt the first time but it’ll all be worth it. The hairs get pulled out completely, which means that it’ll take longer to grow back and the hairs will be finer. It’s also better for your skin because unlike shaving, where the skin gets scraped by the razor, the epilator just clamps the hair and yanks it out. Your skin might feel a little sore afterwards but it’s nothing some aloe vera can’t fix. Your skin will thank you in the long run.
But this is not about you, this is about your mother! What you can do after convincing yourself of these benefits, is to convince your mother that this will be good for her. After all, the Singaporean way of parenting involves a little bit of pain to get good results. This ain’t nothin’.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: It’s S$172.98.
10. Nakamichi Heritage Retro All-In-One Audio System
Why it’s the perfect gift for mothers: There’s this ongoing trope about how the older generation don’t really like to use headphones, preferring to blast whatever they’re watching or listening to on full volume.
It’s not that they don’t know how to use headphones, but it’s just that wires are fussy and isolating too! Let mumsie vibe to her music via bluetooth with the Nakamichi Heritage Retro All-In-One Audio System, which is also an alarm clock and radio. Three birds with one stone? She’ll be proud of you.
How much is it after 7% off with promo code YOUTRIP: It’s gonna be S$234, but it’ll be well spent!
