I don't know about you, but I *love* candles. I love the ambiance, and I love the scents. I also don't know about you, but I have accidentally left candles burning and gone to bed for the night. I know, I know. I try to keep my candles up high and away from the reach of pets and children, but still, accidents happen, and people can be forgetful. Did you know that there are at least 18,000 fires caused by candles annually in the United States? Yikes! And my husband is one of the many brave men and women who would risk his life to save yours if a candle started a fire at your house. As the wife of a firefighter, I am so embarrassed when I do something as silly and careless as forgetting to blow out a candle... but it happens to the best of us. I am just glad that we have been so lucky as to never have actually started a fire. I have however poured melted wax on myself picking up a candle off the top of my entertainment center to light, that was already lit. Whoops!
Luckily, Enjoy Lighting has come to our rescue! Now you can experience the warm atmosphere and the ambiance of candlelight without the risk of fire, and without having to buy new candles every time you use them up. Just like a real candle, Enjoy's flameless candles are made from wax (and they smell good to boot! Mine are bayberry!!), but they use LEDs to cast their safe, warm, yellow glow. They even flicker! They were kind enough to send me two of their pillar candles to try out.
Enjoy offers a variety of different styles, colors, and fragrances (they also have unscented as well) that are sure to match your tastes and decor, and they are safe around pets and children (I have had mine on for a few hours now and they are cold to the touch). I chose to place one on an end table in my living room, where I had previously kept a candle that was rarely if ever lit because it was too close in range of height to my children and my pets. I especially love that these candles have a built in timer, you can set them to "burn" for 4, 6, or 8 hours and then they will turn off by themselves to save battery life. What a great feature! Some of their flameless candles even come with a timer that you can set to come on every day at the same time, and shut off automatically after a set amount of hours. These candles give you the look, feel, and smell of the candles you love, but also keep your family safe and your candle replacement costs down. They are wonderful!
Enjoy Lighting's candles are available in many retail stores (Target, K-Mart, Bon Ton, Ballard Designs, and more), as well as for purchase online.
They are also sold on Amazon.
Even better still, how would you like the chance to win two of these flameless candles for yourself? (disclaimer: Enjoy Lighting will not give or send candles to winners of past Enjoy Lighting blog reviews and giveaways. Sorry!)
