Mother's Day Gift Guide

Whether you’re with your mom this Mother’s Day or miles apart, we have the perfect solution that will make her day and keep her smiling for weeks to come. Not only can we host you both for a visit but we also have quick grab-and-go gifts. For you procrastinators, we even offer print at home e-gift cards! Whatever fills your needs the gift of great scent is sure to please.  Below are some of our favorite tried-and-true gift ideas for making this Mother’s Day great!

Spend the day together

Gifts are nice, but what you Mom really wants is to spend some time with you! The great news is, by taking Mom to create a custom home fragrance or body product, she’ll get both! Visit us Saturday May 11th from 4-6pm for our special Wine & Wicks with Mom event with FortyEight Wine Bar & Kitchen or come by on Sunday May 12th for our Buy 1, Get Mom’s half off special! While your candles cool, stroll to one of our great nearby restaurants for lunch or dinner.

Give her the gift of custom fragrance

Let her pour her own candle Can’t spend Mother’s Day weekend with your mom or your favorite mom-like figure in your life? You can choose an empty candle jar off our shelf and we’ll package it up nicely so that Mom feels extra special.  No need to worry about selecting the “perfect” jar - she is welcome to trade it in different one of the same or lesser value.

Candle pouring party Why stop at just one when you can gift Mom an entire candle-pouring party that she can use for a night out with friends or a day with family. You’ll select some empty candle jars and we’ll package them up nicely so she can bring her group to experience pouring candles together. We are always BYOB so she and her friends can enjoy a glass of wine or a cocktail while they explore the art of fragrance. If you want to make it a complete day out, pair our package with a gift card to one our neighboring restaurants so she and her group can grab a bite to eat while their candles cool. That’s a gift that any mom would love to get!

Gift card Giving Mom a gift card* to Palmetto Scent Studio gives her multiple ways to express herself with fragrance. She can pour a custom-scented candle or a diffuser, or make a brown sugar body scrub or body cream. In general, $25-$40 is enough for her to select the perfect product.  

*Please note that e-gift cards purchased online are delivered electronically via email.  You can get a physical plastic gift card by visiting our studio.

Make her a custom-scented body product

When you were little, giving Mom her Mother’s Day gift meant hand-drawing a cute card.  While Mom may expect a little more than that now, she’ll still love a gift that you made specifically for her! Pamper her with a custom-scented goat milk & honey body cream or a brown sugar scrub that you crafted yourself, complete with a hand-drawn label that shows just how much you love her.  Body creams and sugar scrubs are also perfect for the sisters, BFFs, and new moms in your life - so thoughtful!

Scent her space without a flame

Pouring the ladies in your life a custom-scented product is always a good idea, but what if you want to do something different?  Reed and mist diffusers are classy gifts to subtly add scent to a space without a flame. Craft a custom-scented reed diffuser or gift a mist diffuser (available for purchase in-studio) and your favorite blend of fragrance oils for a gift that’s sure to bring her joy every time she uses it.

Deliver great scent right to her doorstep

Want to give Mom a great Mother’s Day gift, but can’t spend the day with her because she lives out of town?  All of our 120+ fragrances are available online in a candle, fragrance oil, reed diffuser, and wax tart on our website.  She’ll be so excited to find a great-smelling box on her doorstep!

Happy Mother’s Day, Mom!
