Is your mom or mother figure the sentimental type? If so, she’ll love one of these five gift ideas from local businesses that are either owned or co-owned by women. Every item is a fun, personal pick that will help celebrate your special bond this Mother’s Day.
The gift of custom fragrance is the perfect present for the special woman in your life—and she’ll be sure to think of you every time she lights her one-of-a-kind candle. Stop in and select an empty candle vessel at Penn & Beech Candle Co., and they’ll wrap it up with a gift card loaded for the exact amount of the full candle-pouring experience. To really impress, we recommend making a reservation to pour and redeem the gift card on Mother’s Day weekend—but don’t wait, reservations fill up quickly.
Pour-Your-Own Candle Experience, $22-$50 at pennandbeech.com.
