Whether for a celebration, a moment in life or just because, we’ve thoughtfully curated a selection of candle gift sets to ensure those important people in your life feel special, understood and seen. Read on to find out why candles make a great gift for many occasions and situations.
1. Celebrating life’s moments
A birthday cake, a romantic meal, a warm bath. Remembrance and wishes. We use candles in so many moments of our life. Big and small. In exuberant celebration surrounded by others, and quiet reflection alone. The gift of a candle can complement many emotions and experiences that you or a loved one may have. Soft and nurturing in the still moments, illuminating and celebratory for those special highs; candles are the perfect accompaniment.
2. A design statement
Even without burning them, quality candles can make a wonderful decor piece. Whether as a cluster or centrepiece, or just one or two large statement candles - a well-made, well-designed candle provides the perfect accompaniment for any decor, and can add a beautiful style statement to a space. Combine with a candle tray or holder to make the look complete, and you cannot go wrong.
3. The gift that keeps on giving
Candles serve multiple purposes; they can be a visual decor piece, provide mood light, set the ambiance and create a scent experience. Keep in mind that scented candles are not everyone's flavour, and even those who do like them might not like the fragrance you picked, as scent is a very personal experience (who hasn't re-gifted the occasional scented candle), not unlike taste.
Scented candles, like books, are notoriously difficult to get right as a gift. A way around this is to go unscented, which brings all the ambiance and visual joys of a candle without the potential pitfalls. Unscented candles are perfect for people who are sensitive or allergic to fragrances. That’s why we have created a range of unscented candles that focus on design, not fragrance. A way to experience a pure expression of light without the disruption of scent.
4. Candles can be enjoyed for a long time
Unlike perishable gifts like flowers or food, that wilt, decay and go off, leaving the recipient to deal with the spoiled remains that will need to be thrown out after a few days, candles remain unspoiled. There can be comfort in the stable presence of a candle, serving as a reminder of the gift, and it can be burned once it has served its decorative purpose.
5. It's only natural
