Why Scented Candles Make the Perfect Gift

Looking for a birthday present? Or a wedding gift? Perhaps you’re in urgent need of a ‘thank you’ or ‘thinking of you’ gift for someone special? Whichever it may be, in our humble opinion, there really is no occasion where a scented candle won’t make the perfect present.

Not only are scented candles thoughtful, good value for money, easy to send and small to store, they offer mood-boosting properties, luxurious appeal and harmonious, relaxing qualities.

Candles today are no longer just functional and lit to give off light, there are used to create a romantic atmosphere over a meal, can produce an intimate environment, or chosen as the perfect accompaniment to de-stress whilst enjoying a relaxing bath or good book. 

Scented candles also make the perfect gift thanks to their aromatherapy links, where the fragrance supplied from the candle can, in a similar way to aromatherapy oils, stimulate the senses, act as a healer or awaken the senses. Different fragrances will host different qualities and the various aromas can in turn evoke feelings, emotions and affect the mood of its recipient. For example, uplifting, sweet floral fragrances are renowned for being relaxing, whilst fruity fragrances are invigorating and refreshing.

If you’re unsure which fragranced candle is best to give, why not choose a gift set with various scents included? This takes away all the worry of not selecting someone’s favourite fragrance. Our gift sets will give your someone special the choice of lighting whichever candle they may like to use, at the best times to suit their needs.

So now we can see why scented candles make such a universally great gift, why buy your scented candles or candle gift set from us here at The Gift Box?
