I’m expecting this summer, which makes me not quite a mom yet, but my husband still bought me a Mother’s Day gift: a lotus-scented candle in a mug emblazoned with “Killin’ it at this Mom Thing.” At five months pregnant, all I have to do to be a good mom is eat right and not fall on my face, but it reminded me just how meaningful a great scented candle gift can be.
Why not order a Mother’s Day candle gift for the mom in your life? Thanks to Amazon Prime, it’s easier than ever to put off Mother’s Day gift shopping until the last minute, but I wouldn’t recommend it! Here are some of the best Mother’s Day scented candles I recommend. All of these include free Prime shipping so you can be certain they’ll arrive in time!
|Voluspa Rose Petal Ice Cream
Voluspa is the epitome of luxury when it comes to calming scented candles. This not-too-sweet scent has notes of vanilla bean ice cream and tart raspberry mixed with delicate floral rose. An elegant metallic pink votive adds a decorative touch to any living space.
|Benevolence Orange Blossom Lotus
Give Mom a gift that gives back. For every purchase of this vibrant clementine and water lily-scented candle, Benevolence donates to a nonprofit that works to stop the spread of child sex abuse and trafficking through new technology.
For the offbeat mom, this eclectic scent can’t be found anywhere else. This blend of yerba maté tea, tangy shiso leaf, spicy ginger, and juicy orange is just as unique as Mom is. This cruelty-free candle brand is fairly new but already buzzing for good reason.
|YYHC Scented Candle Gift Set
Can’t decide? Give Mom a selection with a scented candle gift set. The price is right on this attractive gift box of six candles with scents spanning from “ocean” to “lemongrass” to “peach.” Made with essential oils for an all-natural, clean-burning scent.
|Malicious Woman Sh*t F*ck D*mn
For the mom who appreciates a bit of snark, this mouthy candle has a name as sharp as its tangy grapefruit and lemon rind scent. Better yet, every purchase of this candle brand goes toward empowering women to survive mental illness through the WARR;OR Project.
|Homesick Beach Cottage
Give Mom a vacation in a jar with this salty summer scent. Even if she doesn’t have a beachside hideaway it’ll feel that way with Homesick’s evocative blend. Also comes in other “getaway” scents like Road Trip and Summer Camp.
|Best Mom Ever
Let this candle tell Mom how you feel. This huckleberry lemon vanilla candle comes your choice from one of three messages emblazoned on the votive like, “I love that you’re my Mom.” Comes already boxed for easy gifting.
