Family gifts

I purchased 2 of these candles for family members. They both love them. They say that they are very unique and will blend in perfectly with their home decor.

She loved it!

I wanted to purchase this item for Christmas for my daughter-in-law. Then I forgot what magazine I had seen the self-extinguishing coil candle in. Silly me, it was my favorite magazine, "The Grommet." When her birthday rolled around, there was no question about what I going to give her. She received the candle and immediately called me to rave about it. She said she has received one as a gift many years ago and would have loved to find another but did not know where to look. Now, we will both be ordering a red one for Christmas. Thank you for a most beautiful gift for me to give to my beautiful daughter-in-law.

Worth it!

Looks and smells great. NO dripping wax. Extinguishes right on cue.

Prepare for the best...

My wife of 40 years is going to go nuts over this gift. I call her "the long suffering Cindy" because, well, that's what she is. You'd have to know me to understand this.

I just hope that she doesn't use it to motivate me to get off my fat ass and do housework. It is baseball season, after all.

Love this

I bought just one and gave it to a friend for her birthday and she loved it, even sent me a picture of it working. I bought 2 more to give away and got the same reaction, they loved the uniqueness of the candled. I will buy more.

I already own this candle and absolutely love it! I
bought this for my son in law because every time he comes to my house he threatens to take it with him. I thought he would love to have his own!!

Love shopping on Grommet! Unique and awesome gifts! Don’t know what to gift someone, shop at Grommet! Bought these for Christmas presents for family members that are “hard to buy for”! Can’t wait to see their reaction when they open them!

The Candle by the Hour Story

Candle by the Hour | The Grommet

“Self-Timed” Beeswax Candles

This coiled beeswax candle lets you set how long it burns. The wick burns 20 minutes per every inch that you pull through the clip, then it’ll put itself out. Its beeswax and cotton wick is eco-friendly, too.

The design was part of the 1600s dating scene. Known as a “courting candle”, protective parents would light one to limit the time prospective suitors could spend with their daughters.

Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
