Embrace the art of candle-gifting this Black Friday

In a modern world brimming with fleeting trends, a more timeless gesture of love stands true – the candle. Meticulously crafted as they are at Charles Farris, candles have long served as a symbol of warmth and solace.

Gifting a candle isn’t just a simple exchange between loved ones, it’s a poetic expression of affection that transcends ordinary gift-giving. Let’s take a look at the unique ways we can share love through candles, and uncover the connections and emotions they ignite in our hearts.

Why are candles such good gifts?

In a tech-filled society, why do candles remain so cherished in the world of gifting? For something so simple, there is a clear universal appeal to candles.

Simply put, candles are vessels for atmosphere, capable of turning any space into one with warmth and ambiance. Be it a soft glow over a cosy dinner, or calming fragrance after a stressful day, candles can create memorable moments for anyone.

In a relentlessly paced world, a candle invites us to slow down, to savour the moment, and embrace the simple pleasures of life.

The magic of reed diffusers

While scented candles have long (and rightfully) been celebrated for their ability to create an inviting atmosphere, a delightful alternative also deserves the spotlight. Reed diffusers are elegant vessels that offer a subtle yet constant release of indulgent fragrance.

Perfect as a companion piece to any scented candle, reed diffusers are equally simple and versatile, and they’re virtually maintenance free!

No need to think about monitoring an open flame, reed diffusers effortlessly blend into any room and provide a continuous, near hassle-free scent experience.

For ultimate enjoyment with your reed diffusers, however, we recommend turning the reeds over every couple of weeks, so they can distribute the essential oils better.

Unveiling our Scented Collection this Black Friday

In honour of our spectacular Black Friday offers (where you can find 25% off all products!), take a look at just some of our timeless Scented Collection, available in one and three wick candles, as well as elegant reed diffusers.
