Mother’s Day Brunch Made at Home (by your family)

There’s no time like the present for your spouse and kids to make you a special brunch at home. Have them stock up at the grocery store and then share your favorite recipe Pinterest board with them. Pancakes, waffles, French toast, or popovers are a few delicious ideas for the carb-lovers out there. Or what about Avocado Toast!

In fact, we’ve got a terrific recipe for the famous LAUSD Coffee Cake you can get them to make you.

If you’re more of a Keto, Paleo, or Low-Carb Mom, a frittata, omelette, or an entrée salad might be a better choice. Whip up some Mom-osas and have a lovely day!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Here are our picks for the best Mother’s Day Gift Ideas for 2020.

Flowers

You can’t go wrong with flowers, whether you’ve picked them in the backyard or had them delivered. Many local florists are still open and will deliver beautiful bouquets to Moms all over Los Angeles – and as a bonus, you’ll be supporting a small business.

Looking for a flower delivery that goes all over, in case you need to send a few blooms to anyone else in the US? We love Farmgirl Flowers for their designs and the fact that they’re a female-founded and female-funded company. They’ve even got Luxe Gift Boxes now.

Sweets

For the Moms who love to indulge their Sweet Teeth, there’s some amazing treats that can be picked up or delivered. Just in time, See’s Candy is now delivering, so you can get Mom some of the best, locally-made candy around.

Books

The Mom in your life probably needs a good book to read right about now – or 10. Amazon is always there for traditional books, e-books and audiobooks. Shop via our Amazon affiliate link and you’ll be helping support a couple of LA Moms. Thanks!

Spa Treatments

There’s no doubt the Mom you’re shopping for needs a Spa Treatment. She could probably use one per day. But since she can’t leave the house right now, you have a couple of options. Gift Cards to her favorite spa, like Burke Williams, are a nice way to help support local businesses that we all hope to see back open one day soon, plus it’ll give her something to look forward to. Don’t forget to include a child care gift certificate so she can get pampered care free. 

Hand Made – gifts and cards

(Check out our Mother’s Day Crafts article for ideas.)

Honestly, Moms love getting cards their kids make especially for them, so get out all the craft supplies you have, set the kids up at the table, and let them get creative. Even if you know they’re making it for you, you’ll still love it when they hand it to you.
