Oil Burners & Candle Gift Ideas

As a twenty something with a penchant for living life to the extreme, I thought it was about time that I took on the mystical beheamouth that is...the oil burner

Turns out, they're actually really simple contraptions. All you have to do is pop your unscented tealight in the bottom of the burner, sit your scented wax tart neatly on the top, light your little tealight and you're good to go! Who knew, eh?! Apparently, these babies have a burning time of around 8 hours and once you're done with a burn, you just leave the SCOLDING HOT wax to cool down as it'll regain its shape and you can use it again! However, my TOP TIP is to do the following: chop the tarts in half so you get a second helping! Full of ideas, me. Don't worry if you're a bit of a wax tart newbie though, because the people that sent me this fragrant stash, Scentedcandleshop, also have a Youtube channel full of videos to help you out, from tutorials on how to maintain your candles to ideas on how to make the most of them.

I think oil burners make the best gifts because not only are they relatively inexpensive, as well as being rather pretty, you are then able to give the recipients seasonal wax tarts as future gifts. It's a foolproof way to never be stuck for presents, or stocking fillers, again! I have the following wax tarts: Honey Blossom, Fireside Treats, Black Coconut, Soft Blanket, Christmas Eve and Loves Me, Loves Me Not. The latter is my favourite because it smells like daisies and fresh summer days. What more could you want? I definitely need to get the tumbler / jar of this scent. I've now got a long list of scents that I want to try next, and I can't wait for Yankee's coconut range next year. I was also kindly sent some cinnamon tealights, which don't offer a long burn but they do make the room smell delicious, and some Christmas candles which are great because it's one of our little traditions at home to burn them throughout the festive period. I also picked up a few other treats but they're secret for now.

What do you think? Are candles your sort of thing? Leave me your favourite wax tart scents in the comments below so I know which ones to pick up next! I'm off to wrap Mamabear's presents, do some top secret project stuff and hang out with Little Cub
