Everyone has that special someone who simply lights up their life, whether that’s a family member, a significant other, a best friend, or even a coworker. Wouldn’t it be nice to return the favor in a lasting, literal way, with a radiantÂ candle holder? Candles are always a joy to give and receive, but adding a memorable twist catered to the lucky recipient is sure to make themÂ feel truly special duringÂ any occasion or just because.
Choosing the perfect candle holder
Candle holders come in a myriad of shapes and sizes, and it’s up to you to decide which suits your recipient best. Some tabletopÂ candle holders are decorated withÂ glitter or cut-out designs to reflect candlelight or splay dancing light in interesting shapes around the room. You can also consider larger, more exotic hanging candle holders toÂ add bohemian flair to any indoor or outdoor space.
Candle holders are pretty, but they’re also practical. They can be used over and over again by your recipient to create a bright, intimate space in their home or office andÂ avoid the risk of a scalding, waxy mess.
If the candle fits…
Once you choose a candle holder, you’re readyÂ for the most important part: picking a candle!Â Whether you want your candle to relax your recipient, reflect the time of year, or rekindle some romance, there is an aroma for any situation. If you’re still unsure when faced with the countless candle scent options, reflect onÂ your recipient’s hobbies or interests. If they enjoy cooking or eating, for example, consider cozy kitchen-themed fragrances like Vanilla Sugar Cookie or Homemade Waffles. Or, if they prefer being out in nature, opt for fresh outdoorsyÂ scents like Red RoseÂ or PineÂ Forest.
Be sure to check the dimensions and shape of your candle holder before you go candle-hunting, to make sure the candle will fit. It’s also worth thinkingÂ what color candle would accent your candle holder best.
Put the two together, wrap them in some gorgeous wrapping paper, and voila!–an easy, thoughtful gift that is guaranteed to brighten up your recipient’s day.
