How to Give a Candle As a Gift

Updated: Aug 16, 2020

One of the easiest gifts to give is a candle. Not only are they really easy to find, but you can find them at all price points and scents making them a great option for a lot of people on your gift list. However, the down side to candles being such an easy gift, is that they can come off like an easy gift! Meaning, candles can look like a present without a lot of thought. You never want someone to feel like you forgot them and you just grabbed a candle on the way out the door!

Pairing any candle with these accessories will make your gift look fully thought out and more personal, not to mention more useful!

Candle Snuffer:

Candle snuffers "snuff" out the flame after the candle has been lit for a while so you don't have to huff and puff and blow out the candle!

Wick Trimmer:

Wick trimmers help keep a candle's wick clean. After you burn the candle and there is burnt wick, this little tool will help you trim off the excess wick.


Well, we all know what matches do, they light the candle! Now you can assume that your gift recipient has random matches leftover around the house, but add a little oomph to your candle gift with some lovely looking candles.


Right now, some great candles and candle sets are on sale at Nordstrom! Candles sets make great gifts to give all together or to break out of their set and add an accessory or two from the list above.

Hopefully you've found some candle gifts that will light anyone's fire!

Very Happy Gifting!
