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.


Excellent gift

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!!


Cool Candle

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!


unique conversation starter

A unique conversation starter.I gave this at a house warming party , everyone loved it and candles were the topic for many hours. My friends are boring...


Exactly as I hoped it would be

Who knows why but I loved this when I saw it and it didn't disappoint!!! Very cool!

Love it! The candle with it's holder are something unique to give as a present (or for yourself). It's a definite conversation piease. I like to just sit and watch it and it does extinguish itself. I ordered the horizontal candle holder. The candle holder itself is a bit stiff but can be managed.

Love the candle. It's a Christmas gift so I am hoping my daughter-in-law will like it also.


This is lovely.

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Our culture did away with the outdated ritual, but Candles by the Hour kept the beautiful, self-extinguishing design.
