WE FOUND SOME UNIQUE CANDLES ON THE INTERNET

Candles make great gifts, but they are not only for romantic ambience and great smells.

Many people light candles as an act of remembrance, or when they say a prayer. We use candles in emergency, for decorations and even as a source of heat.

Here are some of unique candle options — perfect for that special hostess gift, or a unique Valentine’s Day present.

CANDLES THAT LOOK LIKE FOOD

FLAMELESS CANDLES

If you have little ones or live in a place that doesn’t allow an open flame, a flameless candle is the way to go. Etsy has a whole line devoted to flameless candles and wax melts. Wax melts are perfect if you still want that candle smell but don’t want to deal with the flame.

HOLDERS

Don’t forget the candle holders, they are usually the best part about a candle. And it can turn any plain candle into a work of art.
