The variety of candles on offer is simply amazing: bunnies, bears, piglets, elegant long candles, clumsy thick, spherical smooth, patterned, flavored, with coffee grains or dry flowers – the whole museum. From the window of the eye is not to tear!

Any baby will surely love candles in the form of animals or birds. Do not fulfill the desire of the child in the winter holiday is simply impossible, and you probably already gathered to get a wallet.

But – alas! To light such candles a little humanist will hardly allow you. This purchase will be for him a new toy, but not a source of exciting flame.

If your kid stubbornly shows his finger on curved candles, demanding to buy them, according to psychologists, this means that you have an extraordinary and creative person. After all, the shape, color and properties of candles have a certain meaning.

Which candle to give preference, everyone decides for himself, and, by the way, your choice can tell a lot. Classical options prefer balanced, conservative people. Square forms are chosen by energetic people, round ones – those who love not only those around them, but also love their souls.

If you are going to buy scented candles with the smell of flowers or oriental incense, then, most likely, you are in love or have recently created a family. The choice of “floating” candles speaks about the subtleties of nature, as well as the presence of romance in relationships. But older people often like candles in the “wicker” ceramic lampshade or in the “house”.

Choose a gift for the grandparents with the baby, let the exciting lights warm them on a winter day with your warmth and your care.
