I absolutely adore candles. They've always been a big part of my home decor (I love matching the colors to my different room schemes!) and I've given them as gifts for as long as I can remember.
But what if you could gift a candle that had a little something extra?
When I received the opportunity from Tastemaker Mom to check out a candle that was exactly that - I was thrilled! Although I was able to check out this candle for free in order to write my review, as always my opinions are my own!
What made this candle so great?First of all, the smell was perfect for my tastes. It was floral, but not overly heavy and had a nice perfumed scent that lingered in the house for a while after we put it out. The name of the scent I received was Jasmine Neroli.
Because the candle is made of soy it gave off a long, clean burn. If you are a candle-lover, you know that one of the worst things about a great-smelling candle is when it only lasts for a few days! The fact that this candle is slow-burning is a definite plus.
And of course the very best part is that there was a ring inside!
Jewelry? In a candle?That's right! As if candles weren't pretty awesome all on their own, Prize Candles each contain a surprise ring that is worth anywhere from $10 to $5000!
How does that work? Isn't the ring covered in wax?Nope! Thanks to a nifty little air-tight packet, your ring is safely contained until the wax has burned down far enough for you to gently wiggle the package out.
How do you know what your ring is worth?The good folks over at Prize Candle let you know! You don't have to do any guesswork and you don't need to take your ring to a jeweler for appraisal. Each ring comes with a little slip of paper with a code on it. You simply enter the code on Prize Candle's website and tadaaa!... instant knowledge of how much your ring is worth.
My ring was worth $10, but that doesn't stop me from thinking that it is a pretty great ring! I plan to give it to my sister next week as a belated birthday gift. She loves costume-type jewelry, the-girlier-the-better. Next birthday though, I'll snag her one of these candles!
Would I buy one myself?Oh most definitely. I actually browsed around the website and found out that they frequently have deals listed throughout their social media channels and on their actual site. Percentages off, BOGO offers, special deal-of-the-day type discounts... it makes buying one of these an absolute "do".
Are they expensive?Not really. Consider that you pay (on average) about $12 - $15 for a long-lasting soy candle. The candles from Prize Candle are around the $25 range, so even if your ring only turns out to be a $10 one, you're still breaking about even. If you're buying on a BOGO day, well, you're practically coming out ahead now, aren't you?
I plan to buy several during the next Buy One Get One sale so that I have them on hand for gifts. Can you imagine the ease of giving someone a gift that is less than $15 (if you snag that BOGO deal!) but that has the ability to be worth thousands?!
Where to buy?You can head over to Prize Candle's website HERE to get started! They have several scents available to choose from, and all of them contain rings!
