3 Clever Gift Ideas Using Candles

You might already know that candles make great gifts, but you could be unsure of how to give them to your recipient. Of course, you can simply wrap up the candle or put it in a gift bag. If you’d like to do things a little differently, however, you can try one of these clever yet simple gift ideas using candles. Then, you can feel even better about the gift that you’re giving.

1. Put Them in a Gift Basket

First of all, if you’d like to gift a few different items, you can create a gift basket and put candles — along with other items — inside. You can even stick to a certain theme. For example, for Mother’s Day, you can give your mom a gift basket that features pink candles, pink candies, fuzzy pink socks and other pink items that you think your mom will like. Another option is to create a gift basket that is based off of a survivalist theme and including candles, flashlights, a Swiss army knife, canned goods and other essentials that could be handy during an emergency situation.

2. Give Them With a Nice Candle Holder

There are a lot of beautiful candle holders out there. If you find a nice candle holder that you think your loved one will like, you can package it with a candle or two to give as a gift. Just make sure that the candle that you choose to give with the candle holder is in a color that will match the candle holder well, and make sure that the candle is appropriately sized.

3. Give Them Along With Something to Light Them With

Lastly, you can consider gifting candles along with something that can be used to light them. For example, a simple and obvious choice is to give out matches. A simple box of kitchen matches will work, but an even better idea is to purchase a box of customized matches. Another option is to give a really nice lighter. You can keep it simple when picking out a lighter, and you don’t have to spend a lot of money on it. However, a lighter can make a great additional gift.

If you’re looking for a great way to give candles to someone you love for a gift, these three tips can help. Of course, you might be able to come up with some cool ideas yourself. Then, you can feel even better about the gift that you’re giving. In fact, once you give some of these ideas a try, you might find that you will want to give out candles each time that a holiday, birthday or other gift-giving occasion comes around.
