Mother’s Day 2017

Mother’s Day 2017

With Mother’s Day right around the corner now is the perfect time to start planning your moms special day. Whether you are brunching, hitting the spa, or trying to figure out what the perfect gift is, we can help with it all.


If you’re thinking about hitting a spa for Mother’s Day (may as well treat mom and yourself, right?) there are a handful, well really like 10 handfuls, of spas to choose from in the general Los Angeles area. Want the full beach experience? Shutters on the Beach’s freestanding spa is so close to the beach, you can almost feel your toes in the sand as you begin to unwind. Enter the nautical-themed retreat—you’ll feel as though you’ve walked onto a boat or a swank yacht—whose understated sophistication keep in theme with the hotel’s Cape Cod style. If you are looking for a ritzier experience, Cure (formerly known as The Argyle) Salon & Spa inside of the Sunset Tower Hotel is your spot. Services are extensive from massages to add-ons such as LED light therapy ($60, 30 minutes)—yes, the same sun-simulating therapy used for seasonal depression is great not only for your mood, but also for your skin—to a Cleopatra-worthy milk bath. You can also get your tresses tamed in their hair salon which hosts some of the most experienced stylists in the world.

Gift ideas:

Customization makes any gift unique. This year go for a customized La Mer watch for mom. You start with selecting a face (round, square, silver, gold), then a leather band, and then a charm story, this will truly be a one of a kind gift. If your mom is a chef, we LOVE the Grand Dame Recipe Tin from anthropologie. With 12 dividers and 24 recipe cards there is plenty of room to organize all recipes. Bon Appetit! If you are trying to be a bit more classic (and live in the Los Angeles area), flowers from By The Bloom are the way to go. Most flower delivery services can be way overpriced, and when your bouquet arrives, way underwhelming. By The Bloom is an LA-based flower shop on wheels, offering single blooms and arrangements from a mobile truck coming to your neighborhood!

Where to Brunch:

Brunch is a given on Mother’s Day, but with so many options how do you even begin to choose where to go?! If you’re looking for a boozy brunch, La Frite it our go to spot. Being famous for their Saturday and Sunday two course Champagne brunch menu, going for only $25, you can choose from an appetizer, and an entree (which ranges from a sweet french toast, to a savory chicken breast Caesar salad. It obviously wouldn’t be a boozy brunch without the Champagne so choose from unlimited Mimosa’s, or go big with a Bloody Mary flight for $12. Looking for a beach-front brunch? Well, if you decided to do the Shutters on the beach spa day, take a break and hit their restaurant for a brunch. One Pico has a beautiful view of the beach and their menu offers grown-up brunch classics (eggs Benedict, lox, et al) and, what else, seafood options from tuna Niçoise salad to lobster BLT.
