Remember when you were a kid and you could get your hands on a box of Cracker Jacks? I didn’t exactly caring for their taste, but it was the prize that I coveted. Well, I may be older now, but I haven’t outgrown my love of sweet treats and special surprises. And since the weekend is upon us, it’s the perfect time to surprise a friend or loved one. If you’re headed to a dinner party or maybe just paying a visit to a friend, you’ll want to bring them something that goes beyond a bottle of wine or a bouquet of flowers. For the perfect hostess with the mostess gift, we are loving the new line of candles from bella j. These aren’t your ordinary votives, mind you. Instead every candle is a hidden charm. You heard us right: jewelry. As the candle burns down, you’ll see a small (flame-retardant) pouch that floats to the surface. Once the wax has cooled, you can use a pair of tweezers to carefully remove the pouch and find your hidden treasure: either a charm bracelet or necklace in silver, gold or diamond pave. In fact, a few lucky ladies may even stumble upon a diamond pendant. Soooo much better than a box of candy-coated popcorn, don’t you think? Available in fun-to-say scents like Tie Dye and Surf Shack, bella j candles will be shipping in October and are ready for pre-ordering now.
In a Nutshell: For the hostess or friend who has everything comes a scented candle like no other. Think of it as a gift that keeps on giving, long after the last flame has flickered.
