When contemplating the perfect gift for mom, candles are always a thoughtful gift for Mother's Day for several reasons:

Firstly, candles  help create a relaxing ambiance: Candles can help create a calming and cozy atmosphere in any room. They can also help to set the mood for a relaxing evening, which can be a great way for busy moms to unwind. I mean lets face it, with everything Mom does for her family, doesn't she deserve a little down time?  Candles help set the room.

Secondly, they can be extremely personalized: choosing a specific scent that matches your mom's taste and style shows how well you know her.   Paired with her favourite flowers or sentimental card will make it extra special.

Thirdly, they are affordable: Candles are generally an affordable gift, but they can still be a thoughtful and meaningful present. You can find candles at a variety of price points, so you can choose one that fits your budget.

Fourth, let's not forget that they are a practical gift: unlike some gifts that may end up collecting dust, candles are something that can be used and enjoyed. Moms can burn candles while they relax, take a bath, or read a book, making them a practical and thoughtful gift.



So?  How do you pick the perfect candle for your mom?  Here are some tips to help you choose the right candle:

  1. Consider her favourite scents: Think about the scents that your mom loves. Does she enjoy floral scents, fruity scents, or earthy scents? Choosing a candle with her favourite scent can make the gift more personal and thoughtful.

  2. Think about the occasion: Is there a particular occasion or event that your mom might use the candle for? For example, if she loves to read what's her favourite room to relax, which scent will pair best with that space?  Or will she light it with a nice warm bath...a lavender or spa scent might be better.  

  3. Personalize the candle with accessories: add a care kit, some flowers, a room spray for example can make a nice bundled gift and therefore show Mom that you've put some thought into making this a more personal and meaningful gift.

Overall, the key to picking the perfect candle for your mom is to think about her tastes, interests, and needs, and choose a candle that reflects those things. With a little thought and effort, you can choose a candle that she will love and appreciate.

Candles can be a great Mother's Day gift because they offer relaxation, personalization, affordability, and practicality all in one package.

Happy Shopping!
