Candelles $75 Gift Card Giveaway!

Today's giveaway is from Candelles, the Pennsylvania-based line of all-natural soy wax candles. Owners Kelley and CJ opened up shop in 2013, and before long, inspiration struck in the most unlikely of places. After Kelley's grandmother was diagnosed with cancer, the duo began selling their candles to help raise money for treatment.

"After a few long conversations about life, she taught me that I was supposed to follow my dreams, whatever they may be," says Kelley. "Don't let time just pass by and hope good things come, but actually make those good things happen myself."

With their lives changing so fast, they were overwhelmed by the outpouring of love: "We were in awe at the kindness of people, and it really made me love being able to give them just a little piece of light or remembrance in exchange," adds Kelley.

It's safe to say that Kelley found her happy outlet in those candles, which are eco-friendly and hand-poured. The all-natural soy wax is blended with only essential oils, no additives at all. And, a nice touch: Each label design has bursts of colors that vary from scent to scent.

They're giving a $75 gift certificate to one lucky reader to pick out some of her favorite candles. Which scents would you choose? Something strong and robust from the Tuxedo Collection, like dark chocolate or midnight musk + rosewood? Or maybe something a little more light and breezy, like cinnamon bun, Japanese cherry blossom, soft cotton, spearmint + eucalyptus and lavender sage? I'm also loving the Mason Mini Collection -- how cute are those little jars? And, the bursting scents in the Tumbler Collection just scream summer -- lemon meringue, anyone?

  1. I checked out their website and saw that they are located in Hazelton! I moved from Pennsylvania over a year ago and used to visit the Hazleton area. I wish I would have known about them because I love candles and I would have loved to visit their store. I'll make a point to stop by Candelles the next time I am visiting family in the area.

    I would purchase the Teakwood and Tayberry scent.
