With the turn of the new year and January finally over, it’s time to start thinking about the next holiday: Valentine’s Day. Whether you’re celebrating with friends, family, or your significant other, it’s yet another opportunity to show the people in your life just how much they mean to you.
A Valentine’s Day gift doesn’t have to be limited to cliches like flowers and candy. Though these gifts might be appreciated, they aren’t going to last much beyond the day they’re gifted. If you’re looking for something unique that your loved one will continue to enjoy for weeks rather than hours, a fragranced candle might be the perfect pick.
Crafted with sustainable soy wax, luxurious essential oil-based fragrance, and clean-burning cotton wicks, LAFCO candles are a gift your Valentine will love and one they won’t soon forget.
