Give Mom a gift of love from both you and the Whidbey Island community! From the north end of the island, this gift box includes a beautiful flower arrangement from Elyse at Poppy and Pomegranate and a hand-made candle from Taylor at The Whidbey Candle Co. From the south end of the island, the box includes a local plant-infused soap and lotion bar set crafted especially for moms by Lori and Gina here at Silly Dog Studios in Langley.
Limited supply, so we're taking pre-orders through May 3rd. On-island friends, plan to pick up your gift box at one of three on-island locations (details below) or have your gift box delivered on island Mother's Day weekend for a $5 fee. Off-island friends and friends with moms off island, we can't ship fresh flowers but we do have something for you! Skim down past the bullet list to see the offer we have for those of you who would need a gift box shipped.
Our on-island gift box includes a:
- Beautiful arrangement of fresh flowers in a glass vase. In blush, cream, and peach tones, tell mom you love her with blooms that reflect those outside. Featuring local and seasonal stems, like daffodils, tulips, and jasmine, this arrangement is sure to tell her just how much she means to you! All arranged in a clean, clear glass, fresh water every other day will ensure she can enjoy these stunning florals for many days to come.
- Hand-made Mother's day candle of your choice. These candles are a luxurious vegan wax blend made of natural soy and coconut with high quality fragrance oils in a matte blush tin with a crackling wooden wick. State your choice in the comments section when you order! Your choices are 1) dark rose & labdanum, 2) creme de mamao & cassis, or 3) yuzu blossoms & hinoki. Details on the scents follow. These have a 20-25 hour burn time, are 5 ounces, and are approximately 3.5" wide x 2" high. Scroll down for additional details about candle use, safety, and scents.
- A Love You Mom soap & lotion bar set. Our Love You Mom soap is made with our own Whidbey-grown roses and lavender infused into olive oil for 8 weeks. In the soap, they’re swirled together into a beautiful pattern—a few of the soaps even have hearts in them! Our Love You Mom lotion bar is made with the same rose petals and lavender plus neighbor David's lilac flowers as well. We sprinkle our own dried lavender and crushed rose petals over the top of the lotion bars to make them smell even better and look beautiful. The name of this set was inspired by Lori’s mom, Linda, whose eyes still light up—after 17 years living with Alzheimer's disease—when she hears the words "Love You Mom."
On-island friends, click the drop-down arrow to choose either We'll Pick Up (if you plan to pick up) or Deliver to Us for $5 for delivery anywhere on the island Mother's Day weekend. Then, in the comments field of your order, state your candle scent preference. If you're going to pick up, also in the comments field, state which day you'd like to pick up on and at which location you'd like to pick up: either at Silly Dog Studios (4683 Tompkins Road, Langley, WA 98260) on May 7, 8 or 9, or at The Loft building (715 SE Fidalgo Ave, Oak Harbor, WA 98277) on May 7, 8, or 9, or at Nite Owl Tattoo Oak Harbor (957 Ault Field Rd, Oak Harbor, WA 98277) on May 7 or 8. If you want your order delivered on island, one of us will reach out to you via email to schedule a delivery day and time after you order.
Off-island friends and friends with moms off island. We can't ship fresh flowers. However, Elyse has agreed to create a lovely small dried arrangement in a bud vase that we can ship. Woo hoo! So if you're interested in that, click the drop down arrow and choose the Off Island Gift with Dried Flowers & Free US Shipping option, and I'll ship you the box with the soap, lotion bar, candle, and a dried arrangement to arrive in time for Mother's Day. The cost is the same--$68 plus tax. However, because your dried bouquet will be slightly smaller than the fresh one, shipping will be free. Yay free! We'll take off-island shipping orders until April 28th so they have time to arrive my Mother’s Day. After that, this option will disappear. This item will ship to ensure arrival by May 7th or 8th, ahead of Mother's Day.

Each item from the Whidbey Candle Co. is handmade by me on Whidbey Island Washington.

To make well-informed decisions for yourself, especially if you haven't used rose, lavender, or lilac on your skin before, seek the guidance of your qualified health professional, such your medical doctor, nurse practitioner, naturopathic physician, and/or clinical herbalist with questions regarding your medical conditions, dosage information, and possible interactions with prescription drugs.
