Counting down with advent candle holders

Traditional advent candles are a simple way to count down until an event. Pillar Christmas advent candles or long stem dinner table candles can help set the festive mood. Decorative candlestick holders, tealight displays and candle plates help to dress up a table or mantelpiece and protect the surface underneath from melted wax. For scented or votive candles, soy or wax candles in glass jars or containers burn without the risk of running wax, ideal for areas where an exposed flame might present a fire risk. 

Flameless candles

LED Christmas advent candles give the realistic glow of a candle without the risk of a naked flame. Available in scented and real wax versions, battery-powered flameless candles replicate the look of a real candle as the light of the flame can still glow through the real wax like a burning candle would. 

There are candle sets suitable for both inside and outdoor use, perfect for lighting up a frosty doorstep in December, especially when the candle has a built-in timer. Flickering battery tea lights create a cosy window display and can be switched off to save power whenever needed. 

Wedding favours and baptisms

Christmas isnt the only occasion when a countdown candle set can be used to celebrate a big event. Weddings and baptisms can be enhanced with decorative candles and tea lights, with mini themed candles a popular favour or table decoration for guests to take home and keep afterwards. 

Angel-themed candles work for many different traditional celebrations, while more modern themes like unicorns and butterflies might appeal to a younger audience. Battery-powered flameless candles might be a safer option if children are going to be near the candles. 

Candle holders

Adding a touch of class whilst protecting your surfaces from dripping wax, candle holders are both stylish and functional. Youll find small glass cup-style holders, festive ceramic designs as well as bold and quirky metal holders.
