Holiday Candle Gifts
There are many different reasons to give candles as a gift. Candles are a quick and easy gift to give to coworkers, whether you’re doing a secret Santa gift exchange or outfitting the whole office.
Candles are a thoughtful hostess gift to give at holiday parties, or to people who you visit during the holiday season. If you’re spending the night at a friend’s house during the holidays, a gift basket including candles and bath goodies would be a welcome thank you.
Of course, you can also give candles as gifts to family and friends. If you don’t want to give all your friends cookies or hot chocolate mix, a candle is a great way to go.
Whether you buy a candle to give as a gift or make it yourself, it’s not really a complete gift if you just give the candle. The point of gifting candles is that they can be immediately useful, put on the table tonight for dinner or lit in the bathroom through the party.
Adding a candle holder or even a cute little decorative plate on which the candle can be burned makes the gift of a candle much more handy. The candle holder can be related to the holiday or season, or it can be a simple design that the recipient will want to use all year.
You can also throw in a box of long matches or a candle lighter, or even a candle snuffer (if giving taper candles) to make the gift more complete. No matter what you add to the gift of a candle, it is sure to be appreciated.
