Is there anything more relaxing and welcoming than a set of gorgeous candles burning amidst a dinner table setting? Or, a room filled with the indulgent scent of green tea and bamboo as candles burn soothingly on a coffee table, enriching the welcoming and warming feeling of your home.
Candles come in all shapes and styles, from simple designs that are unscented, to more intricate patterns and scented waxes, there’s a candle design out there to suit every home. When deciding on whether to gift your friend or loved one a scented or unscented candle, it’s good to start by thinking of where they would place the candle in their home, and what types of scent they prefer.
If you want to give the gift of relaxation and calm, then a White Folia Filled Candle will be the ideal gift. The scented candle wax produces soothing aromas of bamboo and green tea, washing any room with an oasis of calm and stress-busting scents.

When searching for candles for gifting, it’s good to keep in mind the type of candle wicks and how this affects the burn time of the candle. From wooden wicks, to zinc core wicks and paper core wicks, there are a variety of different candle wicks found in candles nowadays.
At Wedgwood, we use a variety of wick types. If looked after correctly, our candles will burn for hours and hours, ensuring lasting relaxation and enjoyment. A good way to look after your candles is to centre and trim the wick to ½ inch (1cm) before lighting, and to never burn for longer than 4 hours at a time.

Purchasing a candle holder can be a good alternative to buying filled candles, as the recipient will be able to use it for many years to come and it’s more of a permanent gift.
