13 Reasons Candles Make the Perfect Gift

Leave a comment

Sometimes you have a hard-to-buy-for person on your Christmas list. No wait… usually you have a hard-to-buy-for person on your list.

Candles make great gifts for a number of reasons. Here are thirteen:

    1. Women and men both enjoy fragrant aromas – hence perfume AND cologne.
    2. Candles bring a sense of warmth into a place. And who doesn’t need warmth during our Iowa winters?
    3. Batteries not included, and that’s ok! Most candles don’t need anything more than a flame.
    4. However, if safer is what you’re looking for, we do have a variety of newer types of candles that run on power.
    5. Candles are calming. A calming aroma can soothe the heart and relieve tension.
    6. The sense of smell is highly related to memory. Smells bring back memories.
    7. Smells can help create new memories too! What tradition do you want to carry on with the help of scents?
    8. You can match a person’s candle to their favorite food showing them that you really know them.
    9. Aroma and dim lighting are totally unconscious relaxation mechanisms that go back to when we were able to light a fire in the mouth of a cave and see if it was safe to go inside. Apparently candle relaxation is ingrained in our brains.
    10. You can add a candle to just about any gift basket and make it better – bath basket, reading basket, cooking basket — you name it, there’s a candle for it.
    11. If you want the smell without the smoke, you can opt for wax melters.
    12. If you want the smell without any heat at all, there are reed diffusers.
    13. Candles make good decor – it’s like two gifts in one!
