Not sure what to get mom for Mother’s Day? Here’s a list of local offerings for all of the important women in your life.

DetroitWick is hosting their Inaugural Mother’s Day POUR experience, where guests get to take an inside look at how expert chandlers at DetroitWick make candles, while making your own. Moms can learn wax melting, wicking and scent mixing, straight from the DetroitWick scent-library. A surprise guest chef will serve crepes, and they’ll also offer pastries, a parfait station, a charcuterie board, coffee and tea and a mimosa bar.
There are two different pours on both May 13 and May 14.
