I was so excited when the people at Gilt Candles contacted me about doing a review of one of their candles. I pretty much always have a candle lit any time we are home. I just love them, so I was excited to get to try something new. The really neat thing about these candles is that there's a surprise gift inside. After you burn the candle for about 30 minutes, a foil packet that includes a ring appears. More on that in a minute.
I chose the Almond Biscotti scent because it seemed like it work well with this time of year. The scent is subtle and not overpowering. When I walked by it burning, it smelled like something was baking in the oven.
After I burned it for about 15 minutes I started to see the red foil appear.
I pulled it out gently with some tweezers and let it cool.
Once it was cool I opened it to reveal my ring. The rings range in value from $15-$5,000 plus. Each ring has a small tag attached. You just visit their website to enter the code and find out how much your ring is worth.
Here's the ring I received. I was secretly hoping the $5,000 + ring (who wouldn't be?), but this one is nice too.
I think these would make really nice hostess gifts with the holidays coming up. It's like a present inside a present and such a unique concept. They're also great gifts for the people who you don't know what to get. Gilt Candles is generously offering all my readers a 20 percent discount, just enter the code "dwellings20" at checkout!
