Gift Ideas for Christmas

“I’ve got far too many candles already”

says no-one ever!

A candle is always an appreciated and welcome gift.

It’s time to start searching for secret santa presents and stocking fillers. Our handmade small 9cl candles are the perfect size and are beautifully packaged to save you some time and effort.  Just add your own tag to our pre-ribboned and wax sealed boxes and you are good to go.

Not sure which to choose? Here’s a quick guide through our range to find the perfect gift…

Safety first – if you are really not sure what someone likes then opt for Soft Vanilla, it’s a safe bet, not a sweet, sickly vanilla, instead it is soft and woody vanilla and impossible to dislike.

Looking for the perfect small gift for the stressed/tired person in your life, then look at our essential oil range.  These are all unique blends of pure therapeutic essential oils and to give you a hint, their names describe what they offer when they burn.

For those who are stressed? choose Relaxing, Someone feeling out of sorts? choose Balancing

Lost your va-va boom, then Restoring could be the perfect antidote.

Need a boost, then Uplifting is your best bet,

Seasonal blues a problem, then Warming will boost your mood and spirit or Calming will help you chill out and relax.

For something more seasonal, and an ideal small gift for a host over the holiday season, then Winter Spice, Spiced Amber and Vintage Fizz could be ideal choices.

Something more exotic, then try our Seasonal Oud collection, all have the fabulous oud as their base but are mixed with many other fragrance combinations including woody, floral, and spicy to dark souk-inspired blends.

Perennial favourites for any candle lovers in your life you need to buy gifts for include: Cassis & Fig, Pomegranate RougeMoroccan Rose and Citrus Twist, these are all classic candle aromas and never fail to delight

Finally which candle to buy the most difficult person, try Rare Pear and Tonka, it’s very unusual and evolves as it burns making it both intriguing and inviting.

The Perfect Candles for the Festive Season

Here at Hopping Hare HQ, we love all things festive.  So creating our festive candles was a struggle as we had already decided to limit it to three.

Winter Spice is like Christmas in a jar, orange, cinammon and clove offer a spicy blend that is both warm and inviting, and will fill your home with a sense of wellbeing.

Spiced Amber offers a softer option to the bold Winter Spice, whilst still highly fragranced, the blend of wonderful amber is mixed with ginger and the woody combination of cedarwood and sandalwood to form the base notes. Lily, jasmine and vanilla then soften the aroma to provide a warm and soothing aroma.

Prefer something sweeter? Then our Vintage Fizz candle might be just your tipple of choice.  Peach, grape and pear are blended with woody base notes to provide a fruity toasty aroma. Perfect as a scented backdrop to all your festive celebrations.

Our small 9cl candle is a perfect thank you gift, individually wrapped in tissue, boxes and presented with ribbon and wax seals or scent your home with our festive trio in larger sizes.
