Shedding a New Light on LED Candles




I'm confident when I say the greatest inventions in the 21st century has been the LED candle.

(Okay, maybe the AbioCor artifical heart was the greatest, but the candles come in a close second.)

How great are they? Well, for starters, there's no fire. No flame. No heat. Nothing. Therefore, there's no risk of burning yourself. Also, you can leave the "lit" candles unattended without the fear of burning your house down.

Secondly, LED candles are more economical than real candles. Most candles have 20-40 hours of burn time. After that, you have to go buy another one. If you buy one LED candle, which ours comes with batteries, it will last you well over a year. After that, you're just out the cost of 3-AAA batteries. You don't have to go out and buy another candle.

Thirdly (is that a word?), most LED candles are now scented. This allows you to add a subtle hint of vanilla to your home. The aroma of most scented candles hits you in the face -hard- when you walk through the door. It's like "Bahama Breeze" is more like "Bahama Typhoon".

Another great thing about them is that they are very versatile. There is a multitude of ways you can incorporate them into your decor. For instance:

1.



LED candles were made for lanterns! (Don't quote me on that.) Think about it, there's no wax to clean up and you don't have to remember to blow out the candles (most of them have timers now). In the rare chance you do have to "blow it out", it's usually done with the press of a button, via remote control.

2.

Since there isn't a true flame,  they don't require oxygen to glow. (They usually only need 3-AAA batteries which are included with the 3pc set.) Therefore, they can be confined to a closed-in space. 

3.

Just because I said they were made specifically for lanterns (don't quote me on that), that doesn't mean you can't use them in a whole new way. In fact, walking around Trees n Trends the other day, I was able to come up with new uses for them. If YOU think of any, I'd love to hear them. 😊

Summers where I live mean two things:
  1. High heat
  2. High humidity
Even after the sun goes down we are sometimes stuck with the high humidity. And setting around a blazing firepit is not what your friends had in mind when you invited them over for the evening. To keep your friends from getting hot under the collar, replace the fire with LED candles.




To celebrate summer in the coolest way possible, our 3pc LED candles are only $19.99. Hurry, because this price lasts only until 7/02/2017.
