Powered by wine

There is a saying: Motherhood is powered by love, fuelled by coffee and sustained with wine. If that’s the case then a bottle or two for your favourite mama will make a welcome and thoughtful gift. wine etc’s Mathieu Marc Pouchan has chosen some wines that are elegant, sweet and refined, just like mum. His favourite Mother’s Day selections, priced from HKD$239 to HKD$3350, are available at wine etc shops now.

Mum can record her own professional quality CD

 

Give her an experience to remember

She looks glowingly into your eyes and says you’re all she needs, but what she really needs is an experience to remember. The team at Spoilt.com.hk has a range of experience packages that are personally tailored for the gift recipient. We love the private Italian and French cuisine cooking class, where Mum can host a cooking party for four people in Spoilt’s private cooking studio. Even better – can you imagine dear ol’ Mum belting out her own professional-grade CD? In Spoilt’s Make Your Own CD experience, Mum has two hours in the recording studio, where she’ll learn the tricks of the trade and tips of recording artists. Her recording will be professionally edited by qualified sound engineers, giving Mum five copies of her own CD, complete with album name and cover of her choice.
