The holiday season will soon be upon us, which means it’s time to start thinking about what you’ll get for the candle lover in your life. But not just any old candle will do. You want something that will offer a truly unique combination of style, ambiance, with a carefully crafted, artisanal appeal.
Here are a few of our favorite ideas for this holiday season that are sure to surprise and delight your favorite candle lover (and maybe yourself, too).
Hand-dipped 12” Taper Candles
To add a warm and calming presence to your holiday gatherings, consider our artisan hand-dipped 12” taper candles. These beautiful candles come in over 40 different hand-crafted colors to ensure that no matter what you celebrate this holiday season, you’ll find the perfect hue to fit the occasion.
To ensure our candles are consistently of high quality, all of our tapers are made in small batches from our unique proprietary wax blend that provides a pleasant, smokeless, dripless experience. Our taper candles are also scentless (except for the beeswax variety), so they don’t compete with all the unique and wondrous smells that come with the winter holiday season.
Artisan-Crafted Pillar Candles
The warm, beautiful glow of our pillar candles will add a touch of elegance wherever they’re placed. These candles are made from a firm wax which allows them to stand alone on a flat surface or in a bowl without melting into a pool of wax.
Our hand-poured pillar candles also come in a wide assortment of colors and sizes, complete with either a traditional single wick or a more contemporary three-wick design. Depending on size, these candles also last between 60-150 hours, ensuring they will provide a gorgeous glow throughout the holiday season.
Candle Care Kit
While giving the gift of candles to your loved ones this holiday season, why not pair them with the perfect accessory: a candle care kit! If your candle lover doesn’t own one of these kits yet, it might change their life!
Candle care kits come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes, often sporting a wick trimmer, candle snuffer, wick dipper, and butane lighter. These tools will not only be treasured for many years to come, but they also help to extend the life and enjoyment your friends and family get from their candles.
Inviting Scented Candles
Let’s face it, sometimes the holidays can be downright stressful! From family members coming in from out of town to attending various parties, gatherings, and events, to searching for the perfect gift for everyone on your list, there’s no doubt that many of us will be busy, busy, busy.
This is where the soothing and inviting scents of candles can come to your candle lover’s rescue. The positive effects that scents can have on us have long been known, from improving our moods to reducing stress. We offer a wide array of irresistible, enduring scents with their Scented Vessel Candles. Each of these white, small-batch candles comes within a beautiful frosted glass vessel that looks fantastic next to other decorations or even as part of a holiday centerpiece.
Besides improving their mood, scents can also evoke holiday memories. Certain scents, such as Creative Candle’s Home for the Holidays with its blend of holiday scents of cardamom, eucalyptus, cinnamon, pine bark, and vanilla, can be the perfect gift to help your loved ones feel like they’re at home even when they’re far away.
Metallic Ball Candles
Nothing says “winter holidays” like colorful, metallic balls. But these aren’t Christmas tree ornaments, oh no! These are hand-crafted, uniquely-shaped Metallic Ball Candles meant to add a creative accent to holiday decor. These candles come in a variety of metallic colors such as pearl, gold, silver, copper, onyx, rose gold, and roman bronze. Combined with other metallic ball candles, they give off a lustrous, shimmering glow that’s bound to delight any candle lover on your list, both young and old.
When it comes to all the different ways your candle lover can light their candles, some enjoy the simple elegance of the humble match. If you know someone who prefers to use matches over the more traditional butane lighters, there is a wide range of ways to help them store and display their matches of choice. Vintage matchboxes can be great gifts that come in various metal, wood, and leather styles, any of which would look great sitting on a table or cozy fireplace mantle. But if you’re looking for something a little more modern, many custom-crafted matchboxes can be customized and tailored to fit almost any taste.
The holidays are a special time for friends, family, and reflections on the year almost passed. Candles are a great way to help the candle lover in your life celebrate the holidays, relax and share memories, or even just decorate their home with merriment.
