Mother's Day Ideas:

It seems like every year, mother's day always creeps up and most people need to put together a last minute gift to honor their dear mothers. It's not that we don't love the moms, but for some reason, these preparations tend to take a last minute course. If you are at a loss on what to do for your mom here are some suggestions.

COOKING CLASS- Does your mom like to cook? Mine definitely does. Last year, I registered her at the culinary school associated with Sur La Table which has a wide variety of courses offering lessons in ethnic cooking. I signed her up for a Korean cooking class and she LOVED it. While this option is a bit pricey, knowing that you really rocked mother's day is worth it.

QUALITY TIME- If you are lucky enough to live in close proximity to your mother, then spending a little time with her is your best option. She will appreciate it more than cholocate and flowers. Plan an activity day for the two of you. This could be going to brunch and then a museum or whatever it is that you like to together. If you are on a tight budget, this might be the best option for you.

SPA TREATMENT- For those of you in LA, there is an amazing spa that has highly affordable massages. Touch Massage Boutique is located in Beverly Hills at Robertson Blvd and Olympic. This spa is by no means cheap or dingy and offers high quality massages. THe lowest grade massage is the classic Swedish massage which is one hour long and only $57. After one of these your mom will be more relaxed than you ever would have thought possible.
