There’s nothing quite like a mother’s love. There’s no other person in the world who cares for you more than your mom (carrying you in her womb for nine months is enough testament for that!). It doesn’t even matter where you are in life; whether you’re still a student striving for a degree or an adult trying to navigate the “real” world, your first and true home will always be your mom. And Mother’s Day
is the perfect opportunity to appreciate these loving warriors more than usual.

So if you know a newly-turned mother, how do you help her ease into her new life? What do you give as a gift on her first Mother’s Day?

A mother’s job is never finished and she’ll barely have her own private time for self-care. Luckily, there are studies proving that aromatherapy candles are a good way to de-stress. The Candleroom’s Natural Coconut Wax Votive Candle with Essential Oils is 100% plant-based, soot-free, and has at least 40 hours of burning time. They have four scents to choose from: Amihan, Deep Forest, Flower Basket, and Lullaby. Now, she can get her well-deserved relaxation in between her hectic schedule.
Gifts become more heartfelt and personal if they are well thought out and are given with the best of intentions. And mothers, of all people, are the most deserving of amazing gifts because of their undying dedication. Really, it’s the least we can do to thank them for the work they do!
