Great gift

6/4/2018 by Joseph

Sent this to my Sister-in-law for her birthday and she absolutely loved it.


Stylish and smart

As a new mom,I’m extremely forgetful. This offers piece of mind because it puts itself out after about an hour. It’s also very good-looking.


Love these!

Have bought these before to give as gifts. I think they are so clever.


attractive and pragmatic

I bought this as a surprise gift for my wife and she loves it. The attractive metal holder makes it a nice mantel piece and the candle can be used for a romantic candlelit dinner without worrying about blowing it out.


My mother loves this gift

I give this candle 10 stars. I bought it for my mother, the woman who has everything. She loved it and says it was one of the top three gifts I gave her in life. I have given her plenty of jewelry and such but this gift was very unique and beautiful and interesting. I bought her the horizontal candle which I think is more unique. She liked the story of it as well. It matches her cozy and unique house exactly. It was worth every penny. I love grommet for its progressive and unique items.

Awesome piece

I love purchasing from the Grommet. They have great customer service and the response time is quick.

This piece looks great on my kitchen counter and adds a very warm, pleasing ambiance. Will be ordering the replacement candle soon since I light it almost daily, especially in the evening as dinner is being prepared.

I am a Grommet fan and will continue to order from them.


Candle by the Hour

I bought the horizontal version because I really liked the primitive style. I'm using it for a gift for my daughter, which I haven't given yet. But it is her style too so I know this will be a bit hit.


Great conversation peace.

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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
