Looking for the perfect gift for your loved one? Scented candles are the way to go. Learn more about why in this article from Wicksly.
With the holidays and 2020 behind us, Valentine’s Day is right around the corner. It comes up fast each year, and it can be easy to forget to buy a gift for your spouse or significant other until the last second.
If you’re looking for just the right thing for your significant other and you’re all out of ideas, we’ve got you covered. Everyone loves candles, and what better way to show someone you love them than with a romantic luxury gift?
1. They’re Personal
If the love of your life enjoys spa days or self-care, then candles are the right decision. If you know that one of the things they look forward to each day is coming home from work and taking a nice hot bath, adding a delightful smelling candle can be the icing on the cake. If your spouse enjoys using candles as decorations in each room, they’ll love receiving one as a gift. A luxury candle shows that you’ve put a lot of thought into your present.
2. They Last A Long Time
You could go the classic route and get a box of chocolates or some roses, but those things only last for a few days. Quality candles can last for up to 40 hours of burn time so that you can enjoy them for weeks or even months. They can be a constant reminder of your love for your person, and they can think of you every time they light it. A candle allows your significant other to enjoy their present long after the day ends.
The best part about Wicksly is that the gift keeps on giving long after Valentine’s Day. When you get them a subscription to Wicksly, they’ll enjoy a new candle at the beginning of each month. So not only will the candles themselves last for a long time, but even when you finish one candle, there will be another waiting to take its place.
3. They’re Romantic
There’s nothing like some candlelight to set the mood on a special day. Candles are one of the universal symbols of romance. Buying a candle for Valentine’s Day and then using it that same night can really step up your intimacy. Having a candlelit dinner is perfect for you and your spouse to only focus on each other. Low light situation helps keep distractions out of sight for your special night.
The right candle scent can have a strong effect on your partner too. Our sense of smell is one of our strongest senses and is often associated with the memory center of the brain. Aromatherapy with the use of candles can help calm the body and provide a soothing effect through essential oils. Candles easily create an atmosphere of love wherever you decide to celebrate.
4. They’re Less Expensive Than Jewelry
Sometimes we’ve got to make decisions that are good for our wallet. Candles are a thoughtful gift that doesn’t break the bank. A lot of people decide to buy jewelry for their partners on Valentine’s Day that often cost them an arm and a leg. Showing someone that you care shouldn’t mean that you go into debt for them. Often, people would prefer a more sentimental gift than something as flashy as a pair of diamond earrings.
5. They’re Relaxing
Low light can tell our bodies that it’s time to wind down and relax. Even better, lighting a candle can help your body reduce its stress levels and make your romantic evening easier to enjoy. They’ve been used for centuries to promote healing and enhance meditation. Candles create a sense of warmth in your space and help foster emotional intimacy between the two of you as they calm your mind and can even be sensual.
6. Health Benefits
Giving your partner a candle for Valentine’s Day can be beneficial to their health in many ways. Candlelight can promote a more restful sleep. If you shut off the rest of the lights in your house earlier in the evening and light a candle instead, you’ll be able to fall asleep more quickly and easily. It might even save you some money on electricity!
If your partner struggles with anxiety, candles can be a form of therapy for them. They can incorporate the candle into their daily routine and improve their quality of life. Some candle scents can even help with productivity levels and studying habits.
A Few Words On Safety
We love the idea of giving candles as a gift, but we don’t want your romantic night to end in tragedy. So make sure that you aren’t placing your candle near any surfaces that might catch fire. This includes curtains, furniture, and wooden walls.
If you use candles in a room that doesn’t have good air ventilation, it may cause indoor pollution to your room. Make sure that you get candles that are not made with any harmful chemicals or toxins that would be unhealthy to inhale.
There’s no reason that you should limit candle giving to one holiday a year. Candles are a great gift for Christmas, birthdays, and Mother’s Day too! Anyone will enjoy a custom candle subscription delivered straight to their door. Each month provides a different seasonal scent that compliments the time of year and the smells associated with it. Even if you don’t want to buy a candle for Valentine’s Day, you might feel differently around the holidays. If you’re not sure what to get your mom for her special day, why not a candle?
Even if candles don’t seem special to you, they could be for someone else in your life. Candles have a way of creating a space of tranquility and bringing back nostalgic memories. They can be tied to emotional events in one’s past or transport them to another place. So if you’re on the fence about candles, take a chance on Wicksly, and your loved one won’t be disappointed.
Remember, there isn’t one perfect candle out there. Our sense of smell is very subjective, and just because you like lavender doesn’t mean everyone will. Candles and scents are a personal experience for everyone, and there are tons of candles for different people and different moods. If you aren’t sure what your partner will like, ask them beforehand what scent profiles they prefer,
