Most of us don’t even know what day it is, so planning a Mother’s Day surprise may have slipped through the cracks this year. Fortunately, the Courier has compiled 10 great last-minute gift ideas for mom, whether she is nearby or at a distance. The gifts will help support local businesses, as well. 

Louis Vuitton e-card 

For the first time ever, Louis Vuitton has launched a customizable e-card in celebration of Mother’s Day with #WELVMOMS. Through an interactive card-making experience on, you can create a personalized Mother’s Day e-card incorporating iconic Louis Vuitton and Mother’s Day-themed patches and animated gifs. The card is complimentary, with no purchase required. 

Peninsula Tea 

If your Mother is a fan of the famous afternoon tea in the Living Room at the Peninsula Beverly Hills, you can bring the tradition to her. The complete tea service is available to go this weekend with an assortment of savory tea sandwiches, pastries, scones, seasonal preserves, and a selection of teas. The price, including a bottle of Nicholas Feuillatte Champagne, is $150 and serves two. To order call: 310-975-2767 or 

Olive & June 

The popular Canon Drive salon has released a signature Mother’s Day Studio Box this year for $55. This package holds a salon-quality manicure, complete with essential tools such as a handle for easier application, and long-lasting polish. It also includes a limited edition #oliveyourmani print bandana, with 50 percent of the proceeds donated directly to the Olive & June manicurists. 


Local gourmet candy company Sugarfina has new treats designed for Mom this year, including a fun partnership with another local favorite, Alfred’s Coffee. Sugarfina’s signature little gummy bears now come infused with a cold-brew blend loaded inside a reusable drink container. Additional creative ideas include the seven-day gummy bear cleanse with Pressed Juicery filled gummies. Or, simply opt for the all-day rose bears. 


While the Beverly Hills Brighton Way location might be closed, this unique floral company is still operating with delivery in Los Angeles. If you want to give a gift that will hold a long-lasting memory, OnlyRoses offers beautiful flowers that will last for at least a year without water. 

The hand-picked selection of inspiring Infinite Roses is not only stunning but ethically grown in Ecuador. Prices start at $115.00 

Platform, Culver City 

The cool outdoor mall holds a bevy of gift ideas for Mom that can be ordered right up through May 10, for drive-by pick-up. The bounty includes soft cotton robes from Parachute, a gold- plated “mama” necklace from Yolk boutique, plush mohair blanket-throws from the Optimist, journals and Lifehood candles from Poketo, along with Resurrection hand wash and lotion from Aesop. 

Barnes & Noble 

Since Mom might have extra time on her hands, give the gift of reading this year. The giant Barnes & Noble bookstore at The Grove has a drive-through pick-up to make it easy. Just pre-order online from a section of thousands of books including special interest topics such as gardening or cooking. You can also order Mom a puzzle that features succulents, butterflies or famous works of art. 

Jardesca California Spritz Set 

Whether you are brunching in person or at distance this Mother’s Day, local and refreshing Jardesca is a botanically infused, all-natural, low alcohol aperitif in a bottle. For this special day, they have produced a “spritz kit” that includes everything you will need to make the lighter drinks that are perfect for a day tipple or two, and for $89 there will be enough ingredients for eight cocktails. 

Milk Bar Cake and Truffles 

For a Mother’s Day special offering, Milk Bar’s Strawberry Shortcake Cake is available. This multi-layer layer vanilla cake can be ordered online, picked-up at the Melrose store, or delivered to Mom’s door via Postmates and Caviar. You can also order the Cake Truffles made with strawberry-studded vanilla cake, soaked in strawberry milk and rolled in strawberry shortcake crumbs. 

Soho Home 

If your Mom is into design and travel, send her a piece of Soho House private club’s interiors collection, Soho Home. The retail line features a selection of furniture, tableware, textiles and Cowshed spa line of beauty products. Every piece is inspired by or used in the bedrooms, restaurants and lounges in the Soho Houses around the world.
