How to Pick the Perfect Candle for Your Gift Box

Candles make any space more beautiful by filling the air with delightful scents and bringing a sense of calm. But choosing the perfect candle can be difficult, especially when there are so many companies to decide between. In this blog, we’ll go over how to choose the best candle, from room placement to scents, to the ingredients of the candle to the ethos of the company. 

Our customized Candle Gift Box Sets are great for anyone who wants to prolong the experience of a given scent. Not only do you get one of our premium candles but also an essential oil and a Beauty Engine hand cream. Mix and match the scents or keep it all in the same aroma family.


What Scents Do You Love?

Everyone has their own scent palate, while some love the scent of vanilla others absolutely hate it. Ahuru Candles come in a variety of scents, from their Cedarwood and Clove Candle that’s warm with notes of sweet spice and a dash of woodiness to their Romantic Rose & Geranium Candle, which is charmingly floral. If you’re looking for a candle gift set or a candle gift box it’s always a good idea to ask the intended recipient what kind of smells they like, so that you make sure you get them something they will love. 


Next Choose Which Room You Want The Candle For 

Where one plans to use the candle affects which one you’ll want to choose. For example, kitchen spaces lend themselves best to subtle more understated scents that complement the smells of cooking and many people choose to avoid floral candles. The Relaxing Lemongrass Candle made by Ahuru Candles is great for covering up any leftover cooking smells but won’t overpower the space. 

If you are gifting to someone that prefers a variety of scents for different rooms at home, you can choose a Large Candle Gift Box, which includes 2 small candles, 2 essential oils, and 1 Beauty Engine hand cream. You can customize your own scents in the gift box too! 

For a larger living room, you’ll want to choose either a larger candle or several small or mid-sized candles of matching or complementary scents. This avoids having too many smells in a single room, which can be displeasing. Remember to always place your candles in a safe place away from any handing fabrics or decor. 

Consider The Time Of Year 

During summer many people prefer scents of citrus, like The Relaxing Lemongrass Candle or Uplifting Citronella and Orange Blossom, as they repel flying bugs, bring fresh crispness to the air, and also keep your home smelling lovely. 

If you’re working from home most days or a student in the middle of finals looking for a candle to light while you study, Refreshing Peppermint & Eucalyptus Candle is a scent you should consider. This is because it’s a natural stimulant and can boost your focus and keep your mind clear and alert. This is also a perfect scent during the colder months of the year, you may like to get a Candle Gift Box that has a eucalyptus scent because it helps to relieve any congestion you may be feeling and can be a great help when you’re under the weather. 

Regardless of the time of year, it’s always best to opt for candles that have antimicrobial properties as they can disinfect the air in your home. This is also great when you’ve moved into a new home and want the air to smell clean and beautiful.
