Parent’s Day Gift Guide 2021

The time of the year is approaching for us to celebrate the most important persons in our lives — our mothers and fathers. Last year’s Mother’s Day and Father’s Day celebrations may have been dampened by the Pandemic, but we are moving forward to a more positive note in 2021. This year, make mum and dad feel extra special with a range of gifts from some of our favourite brands. From pampering beauty treats and gorgeous home fragrances, to indulgent health-boosting treats, we have you covered with gifts that are sure to delight!

1. Pristine Aroma

Give mum and dad the ultimate aromatherapy experience with Pristine. Inspired by the definition of its namesake, Pristine is a homegrown Singaporean business that hopes to restore you to your original, clearest state of mind through aromatherapy. With the constant exposure to social media, work, and the hecticness of the world we live in, our lives are crowded with stress and anxiety. Pristine’s scents are curated for the everyday city dweller.

Each scent is specially curated using a different combination of fragrances and high intensity essential oils to provide a long-lasting and unique experience for each individual. Their reed diffusers provide an environment of rustic sensibilities, doubling as a neat décor piece as well as filling the air in your home or workspace with a subtle and pleasant aroma.

This Parent’s Day, rejuvenate your parents’ senses by gifting them with a reed diffuser (or two) of their own. Pristine has a wide variety of well-crafted scents for you to choose from – The Pristine Garden Scents are inspired by the nature around us while the Pristine Hotel Scents are inspired by world-class hotels. Last but not least, The Pristine Signature Scents are inspired  by rejuvenation. They also have refills and reeds so that you never run out of the scent you love!

If you are purchasing from Pristine, you can use code “BEYONDNORM15” when checking out at https://pristinearoma.sg/ to get 15% off your order!

2. Sudio

If your mum and dad are always grooving to the beat, Sudio may be the way to go! The name Sudio is a combination of the words “Swedish” and “Audio” into a seamless name which reflects both their design vision and their promise to offer exceptional sound quality to music enthusiasts of every stripe – wayfarers, daydreamers, and storytellers alike.

As a company, Sudio is also continuously looking for ways to improve their environmental impact. Their hope is to reduce the amount of waste created in the production process. It is great to see a global corporation such as theirs striving to play their part in corporate social responsibility issues.

The Sudio ETT uses Bluetooth 5.0, and has IPX5 which provides sweat and splash resistance, providing ease of mind when doing strenuous activities. It comes equipped with active noise cancellation to maximise your musical enjoyment, especially in a hectic and noisy environment. The Sudio ETT provides comparable features to that of the AirPods Pro and decent sound quality and comes at a lower price point.

You can check out our video review to find out more about what we thought of the Sudio ETT:

The Sudio FEMTIO is a great alternative to consider if your mum and/or dad prefers to share the musical experience. It is a small but powerful speaker that creates vivid sounds and is fully waterproof with an IPX6 ingress protection rating. You can connect two Sudio FEMTIO speakers to one device with its Dual Pairing feature to double your speaker power for a more robust sonic coverage. Due to its size, the FEMTIO is portable and can be enjoyed anywhere!

Whether you are a sportsperson, an audiophile, or someone who just loves to groove to your own beat, Sudio has a range of wireless earbuds to suit your different needs. Each range also comes in a variety of colours allowing each piece to be more unique to each individual.

3. The Honey Colony

Gift mum and dad the gift of health with some delicious pocket-friendly honey from The Honey Colony. The Honey Colony is a small family-run business based in Singapore. All their honey is unprocessed and cold extracted, ensuring that the original goodness of the honey is intact. Their honey is harvested from various family-run apiaries in Australia such as Tasmania and South-West Australia. All their products are tested by independent testing facilities such as Quality Service International (QSI) and Analytica Laboratories and the results are available on their website, giving me ease of mind that their products are 100% authentic.

Different types of honey have different health benefits and flavours. Their star product is the Jarrah which has a strong, nutty malt flavour, and an amber colour. Recent studies have shown Jarrah to contain about 2-3 times the amount of antioxidants compared to Manuka Honey, higher anti-bacterial activity as well as boasting skin repairing properties! You can find out more about the honey bees-ness here.

If you are unsure of where to start, The Honey Colony offers various bundles to ease the decision process. You can use code BEYONDNORM10 for 10 % off your orders on http://www.thehoneycolony.com!

4. Glossy Up

Is your mother always putting others first and placing themselves last on their list? Glossy Up understands that the modern woman juggles multiple roles in her daily life. She is a wife, mother, daughter, friend, sister, employee, girl boss, and so much more! It is little wonder that they often place themselves last on their list.

With the aim of making stylish nails simple, Glossy Up aspires to be a platform that reaches out to women; to remind them to take time out for themselves to indulge in Self Care. 

One size does not fit all when it comes to self-care and at Glossy Up, they believe in the uplifting power of beautiful nails. With their range of Non-Toxic, 5-Free Nail Wraps, 15 minutes is all that is needed to achieve salon-like results in the comfort of your home. Their extensive range of designs will ensure that there is something for everyone.

Help mum indulge a little and banish bad nail days for good! If you are purchasing from Glossy Up, use code “BEYONDNORM” at checkout for 10% off your purchase!

5. Wandrd

Does your mum and dad love to travel and take lots of photos? While they might not be able to travel overseas at the moment, they can still explore the different attraction in your very own city or book a staycation for a slight change of scenery. With the gadgets and gizmos that they’ll have to pack, Wandrd is a great solution of their organisational woes.

Made for the creators, wanderers, and thrill seekers, Wandrd was born from two brothers who wanted to inspire people to get out and live passionately: exploring, creating, and living life in the moment.
