Decor Family Farmhouse Chic Gifts Home Decor Mother's Day Scented Candles

There’s so much that goes into being a mother, and the word mom can mean different things to different people. Whether you want to show your appreciation for a few moms, a new mom, a cool mom, those yearning to be a mom, or someone who’s like a mom, we want to help you make her day special with a gorgeous new candle or custom gift box from Simply Vela Candle Co.



Moms deserve the world. They sacrifice so much to keep us happy, healthy, and safe and many of those sacrifices go unnoticed in the day-to-day hustle of normal activities, so we wanted to take a moment to appreciate all the women out there who do so much. And if you're looking for that perfect gift for the special moms in your life, we're here to help! 

For the Mom with the Green-Thumb


If your Mom is happiest when in her garden then our floral scents are the perfect way to say "thanks Mom, you're the best". Here are a few of our favorites! 

  • Garden Lilac - Be swept away to a luscious garden in full bloom with sweet floral combinations consisting of rose, lily of the valley, wild jasmine, and sweet lilac flowers, this invigorating scent is sure to put your mind at ease and refresh any space in your home.
  • Honeysuckle Jasmine - A soft and dreamy scent that opens with top notes of lemon and ginger before giving way to a heart of jasmine and honeysuckle. A must-have scent during the spring and summer seasons, and an enchanting floral to enjoy in your home all year round.
  • Cactus Flower - A bright, lively fragrance that features sweet agave and watery aloe enhanced by the fresh-cut green leaves and chrysanthemum petals, while base notes of patchouli ground it with a pleasing earthiness. This gorgeous scent is a Simply Vela favorite!
