Mother’s Day is coming up on May 8, which means it’s time to show your lovely mum some love and appreciation for everything she does! Stuck for inspiration? We’ve rounded up some healthy Mother’s Day ideas that are better for your health and the environment, too.
A gluten-free or keto cake from Sweet Secrets
Sweet Secrets is known for being one of the first bakeries in Hong Kong to accommodate allergies and food restrictions in their delicious cakes. Designed especially to offer a healthy Mother’s Day option, Sweet Secrets’ Garden cakes – decorated with beautiful edible flowers and butterflies – are free from refined sugar, with keto, diabetic and vegan options available too. They’re perfect for anyone with allergies, restrictions or on a low-sugar diet. The cakes also come topped with ethically harvested bird’s nest.
A wearable aromatherapy diffuser from Flo Jewellery
It sure looks like masks aren’t going away any time soon, so why not upgrade mum’s face covering with a wearable mask diffuser? FLO JEWELLERY offers a gorgeous diffuser that attaches to your masks or clothes with a magnet. Simply add a few drops of your favourite aromatherapy blend and breathe in the scent when you’re out and about. Looking for other ideas?

A plant-based lunch from 404Plant
Famous for their bagels, 404Plant is one of Hong Kong’s favourite casual vegan dining spots. For Mother’s Day they’ve come up with a delicious four-course brunch. Start off with truffle mushroom soup with a mini bagel and an avocado salad, before moving onto the main, where you can choose from a wide selection, including a bagel burger or pasta made with a selection of plant-based meats including Impossible, TiNDLE or Omni. Finish off with their signature biscoff caramel croffle (half-crossaint, half-waffle) served with ice cream and fresh fruit. The meal is $188 per head, no service charge.
