Sometimes being a mother can feel like a thankless job. Single mothers have it even worse since often times, they find themselves overcompensating for the things that are missing in the lives of their children. Single mothers do so much to keep their families as together as possible, but we don't always appreciate it as much as we do when we’ve grown older and wiser, or have become mother’s ourselves. At the end of the day, every mother just wants one thing -- a little appreciation.

The best way to show your appreciation is to take an interest in the things she enjoys and make a day out of it. In honor of my own single mother who loves food, entertainment, cheap massages, gardening, and things that smell good, here are some of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas one could find in Los Angeles.

Sunday Jazz Brunch
House Of Music & Entertainment
430 N Camden Dr.
Beverly Hills, CA 90210
(310) 271-4663
www.home90210.com

The House of Music & Entertainment hosts a weekly Sunday Jazz Brunch that includes bottomless mimosas, a breakfast pastry, an appetizer and an entree to the tune of relaxing jazz music your mother would enjoy. Brunches are a great way to bond with mom and catch up on each others lives. The enjoyable jazz music coupled with bottomless mimosas and quality time with mom makes this one of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas in Los Angeles.

Relaxing Thai Massage
Pho-Siam Thai Spa
1525 Pizarro St
Los Angeles, CA 90026
(213) 484-8484
www.phosiam.com

Located in a sketchy part of Echo Park, this hidden gem takes you to an entirely different world than it’s neighborhood surroundings may suggest once you walk in. The masseuses have been said to be “ninja status” despite their small statures and will have you sleeping like a baby by the time your head hits the pillow at night. Pho-Siam may not have all the fancy amenities of high-priced spas but what makes this one of the best Mother’s Day gift ideas in Los Angeles is the quality of a one-hour massage for only $50.
