Candle Gifts—More Popular than Ever

According to the National Candle Association, a trade association representing candle manufacturers and their suppliers, estimates that approximately billion annually is spent on candles alone. That number skyrockets when you consider accessories such as candle holders.

Mostly, consumers purchase candles as a focal point for their homes, but increasingly, candles are seen as acceptable and highly appreciated gifts for a variety of occasions.

National Candle Association statistics indicate that of those giving candles as gifts:
• 76% would give them for the holidays
• 74% would give them for house warmings
• 66% would give them for hostess/dinner parties
• 61% would give them as thank yous
• 58% would give them as birthday gifts for adults

Decorating a home is one of the main reasons candles are such popular gifts. The National Candle Association suggests the following tips when decorating with candles:

• Groupings of taper or pillars add a compact yet striking complement to any décor.
• One or more pillar candles on a pillar plate surrounded with flat gray or black stones add an Asian influence to your décor.
• A fireplace can be a dramatic backdrop when filled with candles
• Metallic and texture-patterned pillar candles add a unique and intriguing design

Sold in online retail stores such as, these bowls are still hand-crafted the way they were five centuries earlier. So too are the Old India Candle Lanterns that are still masterfully crafted in India from hand tooled antique brass, bronze and copper.

“The use of metals and their production has been one of India’s most ancient sciences,” according to “Brass and copper are though to possess health-giving and health healing properties.”

In Thailand, artisians handcraft Mango Wood Boat Candles from local mango wood, and fill it with the fragrant scent of plumeria and topped with handcrafted plumeria flowers. Also in Thailand, Marbled Canoe Candles exhibit an old-world appeal in a pointed spear shape and leathery marble finish.

The final shop on our gift-giving journey is a Bulrush Reed Candle made in China, where local artisans pour wax scented with the lush fragrance of vanilla and wrap it in bulrush reeds.

Whatever type of candle give you’re giving, you’re sure to find a unique, distinctive gift at online retailers such as
