Candle & Candleholder Gifts

When the days grow short and the nights long, a candlelight or two is a sure way to cozy up any space. Battery-operated candles simply can’t compete with the flickering glow of open flame candles. Leave it to a traditional candle to set the mood with its warm, ambient glow, creating an atmosphere of calm. It’s all too easy to find candles on sale during the holiday season, but the search for high-quality, design-forward candles and candle holders is a much narrower path. So, where to buy candles that will measure up to the standards of your design-savvy loved ones? Before delving into the shopping process, discover best wick trimming practices to keep your candles in quality shape.

 

Trimming the wick is important for two reasons: it helps prevent soot and prolong the lifespan of a candle. Using wick trimmers or household scissors, trim the length of the wick to between an eighth and a quarter of an inch every four hours of burn time. Wick trimmers, snuffers, and matches make excellent accompaniments to candles and candle holders. These relaxing gifts will encourage friends and family alike to linger at the dinner table a little longer, draw a bath, or curl up with loved ones, enjoying the soft glow of fire light. Read on to discover HAY’s complete candle gift guide – including how to give the best relaxation gifts.

 

Types of Candles & Candleholders

From pillar or taper to scented or unscented, there are many varieties of candle shapes and options to choose from. Take a deep dive into the different types of waxes, candles, and candle holders. Paraffin and soy wax are the most commonly used types of wax for candles. Both are available in different melting points, making them suitable for different types of candles, from votives to candlesticks. Not surprisingly, soy wax is derived from soy beans, making it a more natural alternative to petroleum-derived paraffin wax.

 

Scented candles are crafted by blending aromatic oils with wax. When lighted, the candle’s perfume is diffused, producing a pleasant fragrance. As their name suggests, taper candles are tall and slender, featuring a tapered form. To secure this type in a candlestick holder, apply a small amount of wax adhesive to the bottom of the candle. Pillar candles are named for their columnal shape. These are best suited for use in lanterns or hanging candle holders. A modern candle holder is equally functional and decorative. Arrange them individually or in multiples throughout the home – on a dining table, console table, or even a bathroom counter. Depending on the type, a decorative candle holder may hold tall candles, votive candles, or both.
