To Mom, With Love
Each of the SOM crew members picked their choice of gifts for our moms this Mothers' Day. Read on to see what we each picked!
"I have two mothers in my home, my own mother and my helper. Both mothers are obsessed with packing, repacking, organising and reorganizing. The crates are a godsend to them, perfect for every room in the house, with multiple sizes for different items, and different colours to match each room! Plus every mum loves something that is durable and easy to clean 😉"
"Mooncake boxes, beauty in the pot takeaway containers, biscuit tins. "Don't throw this away! this can still be used" has got to be one of my favourite mom quotes. My mum has always been on a constant lookout for used products to be recycled into usable holders at home to organise family knick knacks - masks, stationery, hand sanitizers, angbao packets.
This Mother's Day, I'll pick my mom's 6 favourite colours (or rather, what I think are her favourite) in the form of a Minibox crate bundle for my mom - Orchid, Cherry Blossom, Coconut Milk, Boulder, Ocean (and a Khaki Green for my dad. I think his little mess of keys and pens might get on my mom's nerves soon). I hope they can be a functional and practical alternative to her more traditional storage containers :> "
"Plates are more than just diningware; it’s a symbol of my mum’s love, serving memories of home cooked meals, cut fruits with a side of nagging. These bamboo plates are lightweight, a breeze to clean, resistant to scratches and can withstand regular use without breaking. Perfect for my mum who is practical and has impeccable style!"
"My mum is always finding ways to optimise space at home. She would definitely love this 2-in-1 storage cum coffee table bundle! Plus she gets to choose her fave colours - warm taupe and coconut milk!"
"Mom is (borderline) obsessed with drying her dishes quickly so they can be placed back into the cabinets and the kitchen can be neat as a pin after a cookout. I cannot think of a better gift than an (or maybe 3?) uber absorbent and cute Geometry Tea Towel to feed her obsession, topped with an offer to help her with the dishes regularly (although I’m not sure if I can meet her standards of cleanliness...)."
