There are a couple one-size-fits-all gifts for Mother’s Day that are practically guaranteed to be a hit, no matter the mother. Beautiful fresh flowers, a heartfelt card, a round-trip ticket somewhere tropical, all expenses paid and a beautiful candle all fall on that list.

This year, the Elton John AIDS Foundation may make just that candle. Sir Elton John’s Woodside Candle is a collaboration between the mega-selling singer and NEST, one of our favorite home fragrance companies, which is inspired by the flowers (including hyacinth, freesia, rose, and jasmine) at his England estate.

“The projects we do with Laura Slatkin and NEST Fragrances are very special to me because they allow me to take my love of home décor and put it to use for the cause I care about most: ending the HIV/AIDS epidemic,” said John in a statement. “I love the Woodside Garden candle because I feel that its delicate floral scents and vibrant colors symbolize hope, inspiration and renewal. I just know that Woodside Garden would be a gift every mother would love!”

Know a woman who might love this as a gift? It’s $38 for 8 oz. (or 50 hours of burn time) at NestFragrances.com. Tell us: What are you getting your mom for Mother’s Day?
