A floral-scented candle made in Kansas City

A standard bouquet of flowers might be your go-to Mother’s Day gift, but this year, try a candle that smells just as sweet and lasts much longer. The Midwest Magnolia scent from Lake Candles is not only made locally, but also emits the fragrance of fresh magnolia blooms with hints of grapefruit, orange, apricot, musk, peony blossoms and amber rose.

Each Lake Candle is hand-poured and contains a 100 percent cotton wick for a clean, smooth burn. The candle retails for $29 and can be purchased online here, or in a number of local boutiques such as Made in KC, Normal Human, Pink Antlers Studio, The Fiddly Fig and Garment District.
