Best Mom Ever Gifts

Let's be real. Moms are the best. And having one day a year to appreciate them isn't nearly enough. But it's a start - especially if you show them some love through a unique, thoughtful gift that will bring them joy and relaxation (especially these days...).

Bonus: all these candles will also make their house smell wonderful while they're staying at home.

After all, the best Mother's Day gifts are gifts that are both meaningful and useful.


Here are 5 of our soy candles & collections that moms and mother figures are sure to love.


1) Intention Candle + Nature-Inspired Mindfulness Gift Set

This special candle gift set is coming to you in collaboration with another female-owned business in California, Gratitude Blooming

Enhance mom's mindfulness practice - or help her start one - with this soothing Scented Candle + Reflection Card Deck combination. 

Opt for the perfect Intention Candle for your mom, whether it's Joy (scented in customer favorite Citrus Agave) or Hope (scented in perfect-for-summer Garden Mint). Check it out to see all 4 Intention Candles we've created for Mom as part of this special candle gift set.

2) Best Mom Ever Candle Gift Box

Is your Mom the best? Show your appreciation to the #1 Mom this Mother's Day with our Best Mom Ever Candle, available as a single candle or ready-for-gifting in this adorable gift box, also featuring a handmade felt flower by a local female artist and fellow business owner.

Plus, you get to pick from an array of lovely candle scents so you know you're gifting Mom one that she will absolutely love. 

Does Mom love Roses? Opt for our A Dozen Roses scent for a beautiful bouquet that will last way past Mother's Day. 

Is she more of a fan of relaxing lemongrass and days spent at the spa? Day at the Spa may be the perfect candle for her.

Whichever candle scent you choose for her Best Mom Ever Candle, these handmade gift boxes are perfect for sending love from afar to the hard-to-buy-for mom.

3) One-of-a-Kind Teacup Candle 

I don't know about you, but my mom is a huge tea drinker and she loves tea parties for Mother's Day. Our teacup candles take one of the best parts of a tea party - the beautiful china! - and turns it into a memorable, one-of-a-kind gift.

They're lovely, they're elegant, and they're totally unique. Shop our ready-poured teacup candles or splurge with a custom order for a Fine English Bone China teacup from renowned English companies like Paragon, Ainsley, Foley, & Stanley. You choose the scent and how you want it packaged, and we'll make it an amazing gift for the mom who has everything.

4) Wine Bottle Candle

Does your mom love relaxing with a glass of wine in the evening? Help her relax in style with an upcycled wine bottle candle.

Made out of a real wine bottle these large candles are hand-cut before being poured with your favorite fragrance and decorated with jute twine and a cork.

A unique gift for the mom who has everything.
