From drop-off to diaper duty, there’s no one quite like mom. She’s the hardest working woman around with more jobs than you can count (without getting much of a thanks in return). This Mother’s Day, why not show her how much you love and appreciate all that she does with a thoughtful gift that she’ll be thrilled to open and receive? Scroll through our top Mother’ Day gift picks, all from LA-based companies, and you’ll have it made it the shade.
A Week’s Worth of Dinners
Too many mothers end up filling up on their kids’ half eaten meals (guilty). Swap mom’s secondhand scraps for five days of yummy organic dinner delivery and daily decadent treats with the Mother’s Day package from Twenty-Five Eight. This nourishing meal and snack delivery service was designed by local mom Erica Mock with mamas of all stages in mind because moms are on call 25 hours a day, eight days a week.
Made with only organic and beyond-organic ingredients (and packaged in guilt-free biodegradable/glass packaging), mom can expect to feast on mouth-watering meals like warm market salad with citrus dressing or almond-crusted halibut filet. Plus, Twenty-Five eight’s resident chef is a reiki master and blesses the food after cook day. #momwin
Insider tip: Vegan options are available upon request.
A Luminous Glow
It’s probably been years since mom got a good night’s sleep, but she doesn’t have to look like it. Lumity’s 32-ingredient Skin Nutrients Facial Oil replenishes, revitalizes, and deeply nurtures tired skin.
Single mom, scientist and Cambridge University graduate Sara Palmer Hussey, PhD, was motivated to discover if it’s possible to blossom and thrive as we mature. Her research led her to create Lumity, a luxurious skincare line that allows women to look and feel fabulous. The Skin Nutrients Facial Oil features a host of benefits from reducing the signs of aging to restoring elasticity and balance. Mom (and her skin) will thank you!
Insider tip: If you really want to impress mom, gift her the full package and add on Healthy Beauty 24/7 supplements.
Cost: $80 single purchase; $64 with subscription
Give mom a sentimental treasure she’ll cherish forever (and finally do something with one of the hundreds of photos on her iPhone) by gifting a Signature Art Print from Still Novel. This gift, by SoCal moms Tiffany Pena and Edyn Elliott-Barber, combines photography, design and a personal story for a touching, and customizable keepsake that will bring a (happy!) tear to mom’s eye.
Cost: $60 & up
Once the day is officially over, mom can’t get into her cozy clothes fast enough right? Upgrade her lounge wear with a cute-as-can-be pajama set from Band.o’s Leisure Club. Made of cotton poplin, these pieces can be mixed and matched. One thing’s for certain, whether you go with the cheerful daisies or classic stripes, mom’s bedtime loungewear has never looked better.
What mom doesn’t want the gift of relaxation? With Soothe, she doesn’t even have to leave the house for it! This mobile massage service will deliver a licensed, insured massage therapist right to mom within 60 minutes. She can choose from a range of massage options including Swedish and deep tissue, and if she’s having an especially stressful day at the office, there’s even "Soothe at Work," which provides in-office massages.
Cost: $96 & up
If making decisions really isn't your thing, let the gift gurus at Olive & Thyme do it for you. They’ll whip up a gorgeous gift basket filled with delights curated specifically to your mama. Whether she appreciates a cute theme (i.e. “Matcha Mia”) or simply the best in gourmet goodies (like Laguiole knives and French olive oils), they’ve got you covered.
Insider tip: While Olive & Thyme ships nationwide, but if you’re local, you’ll want to pick up in person and stay for lunch or dinner—trust us!

Satisfy mom's sweet tooth with cookie dough that’s 100% safe to eat. Made of all natural, premium ingredients (and kosher), Edoughble is the creation of local mom and pastry chef Rana Lustyan. And it’s not your typical Tollhouse fare—flavors range from traditional (Plain Jane sugar dough) to trendy (Cold Brew Espresso Chip). There are even vegan and gluten free options.
For Mother’s Day, give her a variety with their “Mom’s the Bomb” gift box which includes four 12-oz tubs of dough; flavors include Blondie’s Have More Fun (limited flavor launching in this box), Lady in Red Velvet (back for this box only), Chocolate Chip off the ol’ Block and Salt n’ Swirl Caramel. Mother’s Day never tasted so good!
Sparkle and Shine
You can never go wrong with jewelry, and a necklace from Kait and Toby is a sentimental (and charitable) choice. Each piece is personalized with a significant stone to symbolize something important and unique. You can choose a birthstone or a color associated with a cause near and dear to mom’s heart. Add to that, 5% of the proceeds are donated to the charity of your choice, making it two gifts in one! Kait and Toby’s mission is to share love with one another while making a positive impact on the world. We can’t think of anything that mom would love more.
Cost: $285 & up

Moms of girls know that it’s only a matter of time before they start styling themselves. Help mom create "mommy and me" moments while she still can with a darling coordinating outfit from Bella Dahl. This Los Angeles-based brand makes oh-so-soft women’s essentials rooted in the laid-back, Southern California style and has just introduced its first collection for girls ages 2-14. We are especially partial to the coordinating jumpers, but with multi-colored stripes and fresh patterns throughout, you really can’t go wrong.
Cost: $48 & up for girls; $79 & up for women
