There is something
about a candle that makes people feel welcome, relaxed, and at home. These are
feelings that are important for any business, home, and special event to evoke.
Gift stores are the perfect platform for candles to be bought and sold. But
candles can be expensive to maintain. They can also be messy and require clean
up, and most importantly dangerous as they are an open flame. Flameless candles
are easy to display in your store, showing the lifelike flame appearance,
without actually burning through your products. By making the switch to flameless
candles you can ensure the safety and
wellbeing of your consumers.
Mess and Maintenance
With a flameless
candle, your customers will no longer need to worry about dripping candle
wax, burn marks, or replacing
them frequently. If you have ever tried to get melted wax off tablecloths or
out of furniture, you know the troubles candles can cause. The flameless candle
never actually burns; therefore there is no pain of cleaning up melted wax,
relighting flames that have gone out, or dealing with pesky wicks.
customers buy candles in bulk it takes a long time to light them all and ensure
the flames are all maintained to create the atmosphere you intended for your
customer. With a flameless candle, you can turn each one on with the touch of a
button and even control them from a remote or set a timer for the artificial
flame to be alight. This aspect of the flameless candle allows your customers
to focus on other areas of their daily lives, and decrease the need for the
candles to be monitored and maintained.
candles do not at all take away from the ambiance of a real candle. In fact,
they often add to it! A flameless candle can come in a variety of different materials,
colors, light hues, sizes, shapes, and still maintain the magical flicker and
warmth a normal candle provides to a room. You can even purchase a flameless
candle that has an outer part made of real wax and can have wicks! The realistic
wick allows the candle to look real on or off, and conceals the LED blub within
the wax to further enhance the authenticity. No matter what your gift store customers
are looking for, they will not be limited by the design of a flameless candle.
In recent years,
States Fires Departments have had to
respond to more than 10 000 fires annually that were the direct result of
candles. Tragically, these fires caused over 100 deaths on average per year,
hundreds of millions of dollars worth of property damage, and resulted in the
loss of homes, businesses, and capital. The most devastating part of these sad
statistics is that those fires were all completely avoidable. By providing your
customers with a safe alternative to regular candles, you are helping to
decrease their risk in falling victim to an avoidable accident.
