This Candle by the Hour Beehive candle is made from real beeswax and self-extinguishes when the flame reaches the clip. You just feed it through depending on how long you want the flame to burn. So ingenious, and a great conversation starter.

12. Comfort Candle


This pretty candle with it’s super sappy sentimental message is kind of exactly the right gift for the person in your life that you un-ironically feel like you simply couldn’t live without. Plus it comes with a teeny tiny copper lid, and we’d buy it just for that, TBH.
