Did you know Americans spend $16 billion a year on unwanted, meaningless gifts?
Yep, we spend large amounts of our hard-earned money on things people don’t even WANT!?
That’s why it’s so important to give a gift that means something.
When you give a gift it’s most likely because you care about, appreciate, or love that individual. They have most likely made an impact in your life in some way and you want to thank them for that by giving them a gift during the holidays.
So this year we want to help you give something they will treasure and appreciate for many many years to come.

Candles always make a great holiday gift but there is something special about the small batch, hand-poured candles by Charleston Candle Company.
