If you Google the term “best gift for any occasion” there’s a fair chance that candles would appear at the top (second only to puppies). Think about it. Birthday? Candle. Housewarming? Candle. Graduation? Candle. Boyfriend’s sister’s best friend’s baby shower? Candle. You can’t go wrong. We’ve got novelty candles, candles in tins and even stylish candles that come in their own ceramic jar.
