If candles are one of your favorite ways to make a space feel more like home, they can also be an easy pick to give to your loved ones. Lighting a candle instantly makes a room feel more peaceful and creates an ambiance for the ultimate self-care day.
While it might not feel like a special holiday this year, celebrating with or without friends and family, Mother’s Day is coming up fast, and luckily you can still shop from the comfort of your home.
This year, Mother’s Day is on Sunday, May 10, and if you’re already searching for the best Mother’s Day gifts, Homesick recently launched a new addition to its candle collection. It’s the perfect way to remind your mom just how much she means to you — it literally says, “Thank You, Mom” on the candle’s glass vessel.
Shop: Homesick Thank You Mom Candle, $29.95
If you’re not familiar with Homesick, it’s a brand that specializes in candles that serve as loving memories to remind you of home (hence the name). Whether it’s the nostalgic scent of Grandma’s kitchen or smells from your home state or city, Homesick is sure to have a scent you’ll remember. While you could shop for any other candle as a gift, Homesick’s candles are different — you can tell the brand puts its heart and soul behind each creation to help trigger happy thoughts of your favorite place or a forgotten memory.
This year’s Mother’s Day Homesick candle not only smells super sweet (like Mom, of course) — with a hint of fresh flowers and the smell of a Sunday breakfast — but the box the candle comes in is already adorably designed, so you don’t have to bother wrapping it. The box also comes with a blank space on the back to write a special message for your mom.
And if your mom enjoys floral or nature-derived scents, the top notes for this candle include bergamot, lavender and sage, which are also infused with a hint of jasmine, white lily and sandalwood, for that perfect mix of freshness.
Homesick candles have a consistent rating of five stars and reviewers say the scents aren’t too overwhelming like some candles can be. But if your mom wouldn’t be a fan of this floral-infused new scent, or you want to send a candle to your grandma as well, we’ve rounded up alternative Homesick candle options below, which also include sweet sentiments.
