While the shop is temporarily closed, Wax + Wine is opening up a virtual candle making experience. Create a custom candle for mom to gift her this Mother’s Day.

Philadelphia's Wax + Wine is currently closed due to the COVID-19 crisis, but the candle making bar is offering a special Mother's Day promotion.

Last minute shoppers can gift mom a custom candle instead of something generic. While you can't go into the shop to make your own candle, this is a virtual experience.
