Mother's Day Gifts: Handmade Soy Candles just for Mum
UPDATE: In 2019, Pretty Frank raised $100 for SANDS from the Mother's Day Range.
Mother's Day can be bittersweet at home.
The celebrations used to involve getting to Mum while she was vulnerable and only half-awake in bed in the early hours and shoving school-fundraiser bought presents in her face so she could praise us for our wonderful gift-buying (or gift-making!) skills.
Now, we're all bit more relaxed and have learned that a sleep-in is the better option.
Since I started making candles in 2016, I've made a candle for us to light on the day to remember my grandmother, my Mum's mum.
I've also had many friends who've been trying for their own little ones and lost babies on the way. My heart aches for the babies and especially these incredible women.
In 2019, I've created a small, simple collection for Mother's Day.
I encourage everyone to light a candle to commemorate the Mums we've lost, the little ones who aren't with us or to share in the pure joy of the first Mother's Day.
$5 from each candle is going towards SANDS, too.
