    I love receiving candles but SOMETIMES if it’s a nice brand I think, meh they could have put all that money towards something I would have liked MORE.  But really it’s not something I would spend money on so I don’t mind receiving them 🙂

    I never use to enjoy candles… i use to put them in the ‘bath’ category, but as i’ve gottena  little bit older, i now appreicate them much more. especially if they are a nice brand.

    No yuck! Definitely hate scented candles. They give me a headache. Plain unscented white candles I can tolerate but I would prefer you give me an oil lamp 🙂  I found them sooo handy during the last week long power outage and want one for every room!

    I’m really picky about scents.  So…just depends.

    I haven’t really ever been given candles.  I think we registered for some.  I think it would be a great gift.  I’m really into those wax burners lately.  I love a house that smells good.

    I hate receiving them, I am bored by them. I have no need for them. The only candle I bought was the one with the ring in it just to get the ring LOL

    Yeah, because most candles have phthalates in them so I can’t use them.

    My mom’s house burned down because of a candle, so we avoid candles as much as possible.

    Aside from that, I don’t really like getting them anyway. The smells are usually nauseating. I have candles that I was given a decade ago because they just sit there never being burned. Eventually, I throw them away.

    (Similarly, I hate getting bath products.)

    I like candles that come in a container – not just a pillar or random votive.

    I’m not a fan of other people picking out scented candles for me, b/c I’m picky…but regular candles, even if they’re ugly, are awesome…b/c being a homeowner now, having access to lots of candles during a power outage is AMAZING!

    @les105:  If anyone knows me well enough to know I like organic products, anything organic can’t go over that badly with me! Even if I don’t like the product I appreciate that they paid attention and probably the chance to try a new product I was curious about.

    Know just one thing she likes… and get her something related to that.

    Probably the only truly save gift is a gift card that is very easy to use… like Amazon or Target.
