The Mother’s Day gifting struggle is real but our Mother’s Day L.A. Gift Guide will help with ideas for Los Angeles-centric stuff she’ll love, even if she gets it a little late. Instead of doing the shop slop out there today with everyone else, we suggest ordering from these fun brands, taking a screenshot and sending it to mom with a note of appreciation. She’ll have something to look forward to coming in the mail. We also recommend these items for anyone, anytime.

Mother's Day L.A. Gift Guide

(Wildling)

Wildling

The L.A. based brand rooted in traditional Chinese medicine has been hugely popular on the internet, but it’s no fad. The art of gua sha touts “harnessing the wisdom of nature to restore the body’s innate beauty and flow” and it’s been popular forever. Wildling’s gua sha kits are a great gift anytime and the results, according to loyal users are real– smoother, more vibrant skin. Intuitive acupuncturist and Chinese medicine scholar Gianna de la Torre, herbalist Jill Munson, and holistic esthetician Britta Plug created the brand to help women get in touch (literally) with their body inside and out, promoting relaxtion and collagen renewal. wildling.com/

(Psychedelic Water)

Psychedelic Water
Wine is passe. If you’re looking to give mom something to sip, why not try something a little trippier? This canned drink touts a mood-boosting alternative to liquor and La Croix. The “first legal psychedelic consumer product of its kind”  is apparently hot on TikTok as a non-alcoholic bevy beloved by “sober curious” types. It’s made with kava root, damiana leaf, and green tea leaf extract, and the media sample we received was pretty tasty. The holographic packaging is pretty groovy too. psychedelicwater.com/
