How often have you been invited over to someone's home unexpectedly or had a close friend's birthday sneak up on you? No matter how meticulous we are with our calendars or how frequently we are invited to visit friends and family we sometimes get caught off guard without either a hostess gift or a birthday present. One thing that can help you prevent the faux pas of forgetting a birthday gift or hostess gift is to buy candles in advance. An appropriate gift for any birthday, hostess, housewarming, or miscellaneous gift is a scented jar candle.
Having a closet stocked with a variety of candle scents, types and sizes will allow you to be prepared for any instance that may present itself. For example it would be a good idea to have say three or four scented jar candles, maybe a few pillar candles, or even an electric tart burner stashed away in your closet for special occasions. By stocking a variety of candles you can be sure to have an appropriate gift for any and all occasions.
Another advantage to keeping a variety of candles in your home is for your own enjoyment. Sometimes we all need to experience a new feeling. Choosing different candle scents for different moods allows our bodies to react in certain ways. From relaxing lavender to invigorating citrus and holiday pine to tasty baked goods; having a variety of candle scents is good for you too. Just remember to restock your candles for the next unexpected event.
