The ultimate 2021 Mother’s Day gifting and celebrations guide

0 0

Moms deserve to be celebrated every single day and even more so on Mother’s Day. This year Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 9th — and after an especially hard year, we cannot deny the maternal figures in our lives some much-deserved love and attention.

Here are some of our favourite ideas on how you can make Mother’s Day even more special this year:

For wine loving mums

  1. VIVANT annual membership: 

Launched in late 2020, VIVANT is the first interactive online platform to connect winemakers, consumers and expert wine advisors. The platform blends engaging interaction, personalised education, and lively entertainment, transporting members to iconic wine regions without leaving home.

For mums who are curious to learn more about wine, an annual membership (SGD$239/year) is a fabulous gift and includes unlimited access to Live Experiences featuring responsible winemakers and the world’s best tasting wines made naturally, access to Tasting Kits to taste along in real-time, wine education and tasting skills development with the Interactive Tasting Method.

  1. Nyetimber Cuvee Chérie: 

Cuvee Chérie is Nyetimber’s Demi-Sec wine. Designed to pair with a wide variety of cuisines, Cuvee Chérie entices with a fine balance of zest and sweetness, perfectly matched with fragrant, lightly spiced savoury dishes and flavours found in Asian cuisines, savoury foods such as foie gras, and delicate desserts such as fruit tarts, meringues and possets.

Cuvee Chérie’s name connects with the translation of Chérie as sweetheart, in reference to the refined, contemporary spirit of this wine, and offers a subtle reference to the sweetness.
