It’s the season of giving. But more than just following a tradition, gifting is ultimately an act of love. In the wrapped present lies not only a physical thing we think our loved ones can use and would be happy to have but also the message that we thought about them and we keep them dearly in our hearts.

We’re sure you’ve already made a list of people, but make sure you put yourself on the list, too. Express your love for the women in your life — yourself included! — with gifts from Estée Lauder that you will be able to enjoy even beyond the holidays.

This season, we can’t help but put a spotlight on people who have helped inspire us. They are beacons of light and it’s only fitting that we treat them to things we believe would not only make them happy but also they’ll be able to use. And when we talk about inspiring people, there’s no question that our mums are on top of the list. So we asked two modern women — Jamie Pang and Francesca Tan — to share their gift picks for their mums and for themselves.

Dear Mum,
Merry Christmas, stay beautiful
and youthful!

Much love, Jamie

My mum is my role model. I’m always amazed at how she juggles work and bringing up her four kids on her own. She’s always been a constant source of support and encouragement for me throughout my school days, and even now, still, when I’m a full-time working adult.

ADVANCED NIGHT REPAIR

Set includes: 50ml Advanced Night Repair Serum, 30ml Micro Essence, 5ml Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex.

Retails at $175. Available at all Estée Lauder boutiques islandwide.

My mum always prides herself for being mistaken as my sister! She’s definitely youthful-looking for someone way past her 50s. She’s a fervent supporter and user of the Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Range ever since I’ve gifted her a huge bottle from my previous campaigns. She loves the smaller bottles that are in the gift set and it’s perfect for her travels as well!

A little something for myself

The Modern Muse 3-piece set is my gift for myself this year. Fell in love with the range’s light and sweet scent and I carry the little MM Rollerball Pen every day ever since. Find the perfect gift for yourself today.

MODERN MUSE 3-PIECE SET

Set includes: Modern Muse Fragrance EDP Spray (100ml),
Saleable Modern Muse Body Lotion (200ml),
Modern Muse Rollerball Pen (6ml).

Retails at $200. Available exclusively in Estée Lauder Tangs at Tangs Plaza, Tangs VivoCity and Tangs.com.

Merry Christmas, Mum! Hope you like the gift, and I can’t wait to see you rock the lipsticks!

Love, Francesca

She’s gracious, selfless, patient and inspiring. She doesn’t mind the rough times and is humble during the good times. I’m so lucky to call her my mum!

DECADENT DREAMS MERLOT LIPS

Set includes: Full-Size Pure Color Envy Sculpting Lipstick in Carnal, Pure Color Envy Paint-On Liquid LipColor in Scream Sexy, deluxe travel size Double Wear Stay-in-Place Lip Pencil in Red.

Retails at $54. Available exclusively in Estée Lauder Ion, Marina Bay Sands stores, Robinsons Heeren, Raffles City and JEM counters.

I remember looking through old photos of my mom when she was in her mid 20-30s and seeing her in red lipstick is one of my fondest memories. Her elegance and confidence wearing it left a deep impression on me. However being a semi-homemaker now, she doesn’t bother putting on make up often and as time goes by, she’s been losing the confidence to rock the timeless lip look so I feel the For You Gift Set, which consists of the Pure Colour Envy in Carnal, Liquid Lip in Scream Sexy and a lip pencil in Red is a great gift. It’s time for her to try on those lip looks again this holiday season!

Self-care, Self-love

While I love putting on makeup and dolling myself up, I also believe that nothing beats having great skin. So the Blockbuster Set with a combination of makeup and skincare is perfect!
