In these strange times that we are now living in, we are all adapting to a new normal (or should it be just called the future)? As such, there are probably people who you haven’t seen for a long time. Perhaps if you live far from some friends and family, then you might not have seen them for months on end. I have family that are around two hours away, but I have seen them only once since lockdown, so I am right there with you, if you have people that live far from you; it can be tough.
Although we can travel more now, there are still many of us that are limiting how much we travel, or are perhaps shielding. And if your loved ones are celebrating birthdays, or you just want to let them know that you are thinking of them, then looking for just the right thing is a good idea. Thank goodness for delivery drivers and post people, am I right?
Scented Candle from Kindred Fires
Kindred Fires have an amazing range of candles that can all be personalised, and there are ranges from star signs, like mine, to ‘thinking of you from a distance’ kind of candles. There is something for every occasion!
First impressions with my candle were really good. The candle is boxed up in a lovely own cardboard box with a really pretty label. When I opened the box, I was really impressed with the look of the candle. The jar is kind of frosted, yet still shiny all at the same time. The personalisation on mine, with my star sign, is really pretty and delicate. Of course, you can add names and choose other styles on their website, so that you can make it personal to your recipient. The candle just looks so lovely, though, and really pretty; it looks much more expensive than what it is too.
There are a number of scents to choose from on the website, when designing your candle. I chose pink grapefruit and basil, which smells so good, even if it is a combination that I wouldn’t normally expect to go together. There are floral scents, fruity scents, and combinations like orange and cinnamon for when autumn and winter comes around. A candle for all seasons at Kindred Fires.
There are a lot of scented candles out there that can be full of junk, made from paraffin wax and so on. These candles from Kindred Fires are may from soy wax, which is completely natural. The candle has a burn time of 40 hours. Although I am not quite at that yet, I think that you do get your money’s worth.
So if you want to send a hug, in the form of a scented candle, then I couldn’t recommend Kindred Fires enough. Handmade in the UK, they are quality products, smell great, and being able to personalise it is really nice. I do love something personalised in my life, and it really shows how much you have been thinking of them. The candles start from £16, and my Zodiac Constellation Birthday Candle with Personalised Message costs £24.
Have you heard of Kindred Fires before? It would be great to hear what you think.
