“These are always a ‘fab fave’ of mine. Last year, my kids made me a candle collage. It’s a plain store bought candle in a glass onto which they affixed family photos and phrases that mean a lot to us. I take it everywhere.”
“I’ve found in my experience that moms like gifts they can actually open and reveal. No matter the brand, no matter the assortment – this is a sweet and chic way to say ‘I love you, mom’.”
