the gift of scented candles

What do you get the person who has everything? Everyone knows someone who is really difficult to buy for whatever the occasion – whether it be a family member, friend or work colleague. Well, don’t worry, Birthday, Christmas, wedding as a thank you or even as a get well soon present, scented candles are the perfect gift. An extra special scented soy candle gift is a thoughtful present that is guaranteed to bring a smile to that special someone’s face.

Every time they light it, they will think of the person who gave it to them. Scented candles help promote a calm and serene atmosphere so you can give a candle safe in the knowledge that you’re also giving the gift of relaxation and indulgence.

But which candle should you buy? What size? What scent? Well, we’ve put together this handy guide to help you choose the perfect candle gift.

Your first consideration should be which scent to purchase. With 11 different scents on offer at Alight Candle Company you’ve certainly come to the right place. Think about when your friend or family member will use the candle. If they will use it to add a little candlelight to bath time, then why not opt for our Himalayan Cedar & Jasmine fragrance which will add a touch of the spa ambience to any bathroom.

If you think they will like to light the candle during a cosy night in in front of the telly, perhaps our Sandalwood & Myrrh fragrance would add to the warm cosy atmosphere. Or if alfresco dining is more there thing the Lime Basil & Mandarin will add an air of summer living to any BBQ.

When it comes to shape and size, perhaps price will be the deciding factor. However, with prices ranging from £10 – £20, we’ve got something to suit everyone’s pocket.

You will also need to consider its use and burn time. For a candle that’s likely to be lit every evening, you will need one with a long burn time such as our large clear glass candles or seasonal range with between 45 and 60 hours burn time. If used correctly you can be assured they will last several weeks.

If used during a meal or during a soak in the bath perhaps one of our smaller candles or soy wax melts together with our gorgeous luxury handmade melt burner will be just the ticket.

We hope that this has helped you to select the right candle for your gift to that special someone. Rest assured, with our gorgeous fragrance range and luxury packaging, they are sure to be happy with whatever scented soy candle you choose to give them.
