If you're looking for a home decor or spa-inspired present idea for any adult on your gift-giving list, you can't go wrong with all-natural beeswax candles. Made from pure beeswax, these candles are known for having a longer burn time than their paraffin counterparts and less dripping and soot release as well.
Natural beeswax candles are yellow and feature a honeycomb pattern, as well as a slightly sweet honey scent. Because they're non-toxic, beeswax candles are ideal gifts for people who are sensitive to synthetic fragrances.
Beeswax candles make thoughtful gifts for a wide range of special events and occasions, including birthdays, holidays such as Valentine's Day and Christmas, weddings, bridal showers, housewarmings, and anniversaries. You can gift them by themselves or create a one-of-a-kind basket filled with complementary goodies. Beeswax candles are readily available online and in health food stores, as well as in some specialty gift shops.
Here are a few beeswax candle gift ideas to consider:
1. Beeswax Taper Candles
Beeswax taper candles are perfect for someone who just moved into a new home and is in need of decor pieces or for people who like to have dinner parties. Elegant and tall, taper candles make eye-catching table centerpieces and provide soft lighting as well.
Round out the gift with a pair of taper candle holders in a color or design that suits the recipient. Some ideas include modern glass, sleek silver, or opulent gold candle holders. You can even have them engraved with the recipient's initials or a special date as a personalized touch.
2. Spa-Inspired Set
Give a friend or loved one a spa experience at home with a beeswax candle gift set. Start with a wicker basket that the recipient can reuse, and fill it with the sweet-smelling candle, a soft washcloth or sponge, honey-scented lotion and body wash, and any other pampering items you'd like.
If you want to create a bigger gift, include a luxurious robe and slipper set as well. Have the robe monogrammed for a customized look.
3. Seasonal Candles
You can transform plain beeswax candles into seasonal gifts with a few decor pieces. For instance, attach a pine sprig and a dried orange slice to a beeswax candle with a red ribbon as a Christmas gift, or place a candle in a heart-patterned holder as a Valentine's Day surprise.
Beeswax candles are also available in a variety of colors, so you can match them to a specific event, such as a high school or college graduation.
