Get a free cake for any purchase of coffee or tea between 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Mother’s Day. Take the time to go shopping with her too. It’s almost impossible to leave without buying anything from IKEA. Who knows what you might find?

Remember, this Mother’s Day and everyday, give your mum some one-on-one QT and show her the care she deserves. Happy Mother’s Day!
