Candles are the perfect gift because they can be used for any occasion
Gone are the days where the generic white wax candle that our grandmothers used to use for light when they didn’t have electricity were the only candles that were available.
These days, Candles have become an intrinsic item in any household, and will continue to be long into the future. Candles are not only the perfect gift, but can be used for absolutely any occasion from having a relaxing, candle-lit foam bath to a romantic dinner for two, to simply lighting a candle to create an ambience or using it as emergency lighting when there is a power-cut.
In an age-old South African Afrikaner tradition in the Voortrekker days, a boy would visit the girl’s house and they would be given a candle by the parents. The ‘dating’ couple would then go and sit in the parlour or on the verandah. They would chat until the candle burnt down. This was the signal that it was time for the boy to leave. Everyone soon learned the ‘trick’ of sprinkling salt on the candle in order to prolong the beau’s visit.
