I’ve moved many times during my adult life. From apartments to homes and from city to city. With each and every move, my mom has swept in, helped me turn my new place into exactly what I wanted it to be and left me feeling like I truly have a home instead of just a house. It’s just been a talent of hers to make the place that I live feel like something more and I thought she knew every tip and trick in the book to making a new home stylish and clean.
So when she recently decided to change things up a bit and move into her very first solo apartment (ever), I figured there would be very little need for my help. But oh how wrong I was. You see, this move was HUGE for her in lots of ways. It was a move from a sleepy little island to a big, busy city. But in addition to that that it was her first move since my dad’s death and more importantly, it was to the town they had always said they would retire together to.
With a little help from my brother she found the perfect 3 bedroom apartment with beautiful city views and just the right amount of room. My sister-in-law stepped in to quickly help her furnish the place and give it the look and feel of a peaceful nest in the middle of the all the hustle and bustle. But upon my first visit to see it last week, I quickly realized that something was still missing. That “home” feel just wasn’t there. As I made the two hour drive back after that initial visit, I couldn’t quite figure out what her new home needed but I knew I had to find it for her. And as soon as I hit the city limits in my own town, I turned my car towards Walmart and began my mission to put together a housewarming gift basket that would truly turn her very first solo apartment into her very first solo home.
As I walked the Walmart aisles, I thought about the things that make my home feel welcoming when I come in the door. For years now I’ve had a favorite fragrance in my home. It’s that signature scent that relaxes and rejuvenates me. Knowing that the sense of smell is one of the strongest senses and can trigger feeling of peace, calm and “home” in the brain, I headed for the candle aisle to start my housewarming gift. As I looked at all the candles, I thought even more about what made my own home feel special. Some time ago I replaced traditional wick candles with wickless warmers and wax cubes in my own home. The change was perfect for me because the immediate fragrance release meant that my home always smelled fabulous! In addition to that, I was able to express my style since wax wamers offered a variety of options to fit in seamlessly with my decor. After locating the Wax Warmers in the candle aisle, my eyes instantly went to the trendy ScentSationals products.
With designs that were anything but ordinary, they stood out from the rest. And with prices that I literally could not believe, there was no need to choose just one! Knowing that my mom had worked hard to give her new home a unique feel, I thought what better way to complete her vision than with a ScentSationals Wax Warmer that not only provided amazing fragrance but also enhanced the decor of her rooms in a stylish and trendy way. After agonizing over the selection for way too long trying to find the perfect look, my eyes landed on the NEW line of Edison Warmers and I knew that I had found the perfect match.
You see, the look in my moms new apartment has an old world feel with bright pops of color. It’s peaceful and beautiful and makes you feel like you’ve stepped out of the craziness of everyday life. In much the same way, the stylish Edison warmers which are inspired by historical antique pieces from different centuries and feature Thomas Edison-inspired light bulbs instantly made me feel like I’d been taken back in time to a place where life was simpler and at the end of the day it was enough to just come home. I loved the rustic feel of the light actually showing in the warmer and instantly knew that sitting in the middle of her kitchen table, this line of warmers would complete the look and feel of the room and truly make it feel like home.
Knowing that the Edison warmer was the perfect starting place for my housewarming gift basket, I continued to browse the aisle. Because although I had found the centerpiece for giving her house that perfect homey look and scent, I wanted to do even more. Since the prices on the warmers were so amazing and the styles they came in were stunning, I decided to pick up one more, ensuring that she could incorporate amazing scents throughout her new home.
Once I had picked both a new Edison Style Wax Warmer and a traditional ScentSationals Wax Warmer with an inspirational message engraved into it, I headed on to the wax cubes. With more scents than my mind could comprehend, the ScentSationals wax cubes instantly drew me in. As I stood and smelled each one, I was thrilled with the variety of scents and loved knowing that these waxes are made in the USA and top quality. I tried to narrow it down to just one or two to add to my housewarming gift. Really I did. But in the end I knew that finding your signature scent sometimes takes a little time and I wanted to ensure that my mom had plenty of choices as she went on that ScentSationals journey!
Armed with an array of wax cubes and my beautiful hand designed ScentSationals Wax Warmers, I was ready to start assembling my housewarming gift. After picking up a few more odds and ends I headed to the register, made my purchases and then went straight home to get to work assembling a housewarming gift basket that would help her home look stylish and smell amazing.
Once all my items were laid out on the table, putting together a stylish housewarming gift basket was as easy as adding a few decorative towels, arranging my ScentSational Wax Warmers and wax cubes and pairing them in my basket with a few small touches that felt like home to me. As I put together my cute little basket, ensuring that I had included the instructions for using her new warmers, I could smell the waxes filling my own home with amazing scents! Thankfully I had picked up a ScentSationals Edison Wax Warmer and some wax cubes at amazing prices for myself so that I could enjoy the fragrance and beauty I was gifting while I worked on my little project!
With my gift basket put together, I’m now ready to make the trip to mom’s new apartment. I’m ready to gift those finishing touches that will turn her beautiful new place from a house into a home. And I’m ready to share with her the gift of stylish warmers and amazing scents. I just know that her new ScentSationals Edison Wax Warmer will be the one piece in her home that takes her design, her vision and all her hard work and brings it together in a way that makes her feel like she is home each and every time she walks through the door.
Because I know from my own experience that while you can find the perfect furniture and arrange the rooms just right, you’re house doesn’t truly feel like a home until it smells like one. And for me, giving her a stylish way to ensure that her house always smells like a home was as easy as making the choice to purchase a ScentSationals Edison Wax Warmers and wax cubes from Walmart!
