Every girl, no matter how old, has a sweet tooth. Why not treat Mom to a delicious box of cupcakes?

Cake and Art will personally decorate your cupcakes with pictures (old family portraits?) or even with the family monogram. I recommend the red velvet recipe, which is a fantastic way to thank your mother for all she's done for you this year.

Cake and Art is located at 8709 Santa Monica Boulevard in West Los Angeles. For more information, call (310) 657-8694 or visit


This year, scan all those photos from your childhood and put them on a CD-Rom. Now, with the number of digital photo frames available, this gift will not only make mom nostalgic as she gazes upon your grill, but proud of her kid, too.

Her co-workers will glare with envy. Check our your local Best Buy store to pick the frame that fits your budget.


Flowers are always a great gift for mom, no doubt. But why not give her a unique arrangement this year?

Mom is one-of-a-kind, so show her by presenting her with that special, sought after flower, the orchid. Speak to the orchid experts at the Orchid Wrangler, who can help you pick out an arrangement that best suits her.

The Orchid Wrangler is located at 8365 West Third Street in Los Angeles. For more information, call (323) 655-0855 or visit


Mom works hard. Award her a break this Mother's Day by booking her an appointment with a maid service.

Providing cleaning services, as well as on-site home and garden amenities, these maids will allow Mom to get the R&R that she deserves so much this year.

G. N. Maid Services, Inc. is located at 5740 West 85th Place in Los Angeles. For more information, call (310) 642-0053.
