“There’s no love quite like a mother’s love”.
Most of us might be able to relate to this particular adage.
And while Mother’s Day has long passed, every mother deserves some good, quality time with her children.
If you’re feeling particularly filial this month, here are eight shops and restaurants you can consider visiting with your mum in your free time.
1) L'éclair Pâtisserie
L'éclair Pâtisserie is Singapore's first éclair specialty store and cafe.
According to them, éclairs have been known only to be filled with plain pastry cream and glazed with dark chocolate for the longest time.
Having been trained at the prestigious Le Cordon Bleu Paris, L’éclair hopes to change this perception with their eclair creations that come in a myriad of colours and flavours.
Let your mum indulge in these tasty treats by paying just S$8 for a S$15 gift card on CardsPal, applicable for physical store redemption when you download the CardsPal app.
If you're looking for additional savings, check out the Cardculator feature on the CardsPal app as well.
Using this feature, discover the best credit card to use to optimise your savings.
2) Love, Bonito
Unless you live under a rock, you’ve probably seen a Love, Bonito store somewhere in your local mall.
The brand first started out as a blogshop in 2010 and has since grown into a multimillion-dollar fashion empire over the years.
If you’re thinking of hitting up any of these malls (ION, VivoCity, Funan, [email protected] or JEM) with your mum, consider bringing her shopping at Love, Bonito.
From tops and dresses to skirts, pants, blazers and outerwear, the label has hundreds of different styles for you and your mum.
Rest assured that there are also age-appropriate styles for both the young and young at heart.
This month, credit card app CardsPal is having a promotion where customers can buy an S$8 for S$15 gift card, only applicable for online store redemption.
CardsPal’s Cardculator feature will also tell you that the HSBC Visa Platinum Credit Card will give you five per cent cashback.
3) Tigerlily Patisserie
Tigerlily Patisserie is a 20+ seater cafe in the heart of Joo Chiat that sells coffee, brunch, bread and pastries.

Each of the cafe’s bakes is prepared fresh daily in limited quantities and are a delightful treat for anyone looking to share something delicate and refined with their mums.
