2. Tefal’s Cake Factory Delices
This nifty appliance will be a useful addition to a culinary queen's baking adventures. It comes with 5 intelligent baking programmes that give you perfect home-baked treats every time—so no more failed bakes or guessing if that chiffon cake’s going to rise after baking.
It also comes with a recipe booklet of 30 recipes, so mum can get started on baking straight away. For those who want more control, switch to manual mode, which lets you adjust the cooking time and temperature based on your own recipes.

3. Dyson Airwrap
Get mum looking her best with this hair styler by Dyson. It harnesses Dyson’s well-known digital motor to create an aerodynamic phenomenon known as the Coanda effect, which occurs when a high-speed jet of air flows across the surface and attaches itself to it.
With that principle in mind, the styler lets you curl, wave, smooth or tussle dry hair using air combined with low heat—so no hurting those tresses! The box comes equipped with a number of attachments for different hair needs from the round volumising brush—useful for adding volume to fine hair—or the barrel curler that lets you create loose curls for thick, coarse hair.

The 2022 version comes with a new matte display, which has anti-glare, anti-reflection and anti-fingerprint features and looks even more like a real painting. Mum gets to choose a wide selection of artworks from the Samsung Art Store (subscription is required), which lets you browse and buy artworks from major museums in the world, including the Louvre Museum in France, the Albertina Museum in Vienna and our very own National Gallery Singapore.

Activating the ioniser function will help to eliminate airborne bacteria and micro-organisms.

8. Anova Precision Cooker
Introduce mum to sous vide cooking and feel her wrath—ha, we’re kidding; it won’t be that difficult to convince her since it will help make mealtime prep easier and she won’t need to give up on her wok.
Sous vide cooking relies on cooking food at precise temperatures. All you need to do is place the food in a sealed plastic bag, immerse that in a water bath (a pot filled with water) that is heated to a precise temperature with the help of an immersion circulator like the Anova Precision Cooker.
While sous vide foods are fully cooked and ready to eat right out of the water bath, you can finish them off with a sear, grill or a deep fry when the occasion calls for it. This immersion circulator can also be controlled via the Anova app, letting you control the device remotely using your phone.
