When it comes to being the perfect guest, unfortunately, it's not just about your charm and wit. A thoughtful host or hostess gift can truly set the tone for a delightful visit. 

At Southlake Gifts Canada, we understand the art of gifting. That’s why our unique range of candles is designed to celebrate all sorts of different occasions and people, including those who welcome us into their homes. 

But before we get into what types of candles make the best gifts, let’s understand the reason for giving a host or hostess gift. 

The Tradition of Hostess Gifts: A Brief History 

The tradition of bringing a gift to the host dates back centuries. Gifts have varied to include plants, flowers, wine, dessert, candles, and more. These small tokens of appreciation are a way to show gratitude to those for inviting us into their home. 

This gesture of politeness and consideration has evolved over the years, and although traditional gifts still stand strong, adding a unique spin can really set your gift apart. We love candles because they can fit into any space, bring a serene presence to the home, and can even add to the mood of the visit. 

Candles are perfect for adorning coffee tables or bookshelves and are a delightful addition to any home decor. Here are some of our favourite candle gifts perfect to be the delight of any receiving host or hostess.  

Succulent Candles

We have multiple options, including our Assorted Succulent Candle with Concrete Vessel, which gives the gift of a reusable vessel, our Cyclamen Succulent Candle, which gives the gift of a reusable mug, and our Succulent Candle, the perfect option for adding a touch of green scattered around the home.

Our Hydrangea Candles are more than just candles; they are lifelike replicas of one of nature's most beautiful flowers. Handcrafted with precision and scented to perfection, these candles will not only illuminate your hostess’ space but also infuse it with the delightful fragrance of blooming hydrangeas. 

Each candle has the density of real hydrangea petals and has been inspired by nature’s exquisite creation, making it the only realistic hydrangea candle on the market. Surprise your friends with a gift that combines artistry, fragrance, and nature's beauty.

Rose Candles

Roses are the epitome of love and beauty, but they often don’t last as long as we’d like. Our Rose Candles, delicately crafted on plastic stems, capture the elegance of real roses. These candles are thoughtful, long-lasting, and are perfect for adorning your host's home. 

The Perfect Backup Plan: Southlake Gifts Canada Gift Cards 

Not sure which candle your host or hostess would prefer? We've got the perfect backup plan – the Southlake Gifts Canada Gift Card. Shopping for someone else can be challenging, but with our gift cards, you're giving the gift of choice.
