Disclosure: I am working with East Coast Candles to bring you this gift guide post. Opinions are my own.
I love it when you find out about a company so awesome that it makes buying local easy. I’ve stumbled upon a couple great finds this fall, and when it comes to Christmas gifts, East Coast Candles, from Plumweseep, New Brunswick, is high on my local list this year – but they are far from being a new company. Read on and you’ll also be rewarded with an exclusive coupon code to help you complete your holiday shopping.
East Coast Candles was established in 1997 as a quality maker of handmade Canadian candles. Each of our candles, soy candles, wax melts, diffusers and other products are handmade in small batches. We offer several complete lines of candles and related products with over 200 scents to choose from. Many different styles and types of waxes available- including 100% natural soy wax and beeswax.
Like a kid in a candy store I made some selections and had them shipped to me. East Coast Candles ships within Canada and the US, and currently offers flat rate $10 shipping across the Maritimes. You may also find them locally at select craft fairs. To say that I LOVE every item as much as I hoped I would is a fair assessment. Now, I’m faced with a dilemma though… I had hoped to make a couple of these items Christmas gifts, but as it stands right now, I think they are all going to be mine. How Scrooge-like of me! #sorrynotsorry
This Berries & Pine 100% Natural Soy Wax Candle is Christmas in a Mason jar. This one is mine for sure. I’m finishing up a few other candles I have on the go before lighting it, but it smells soooooo good the wait is rough-going.
The Fancy Wax Melts from East Coast Candles really caught my eye. What a cute Teachers gift these would make, no? Or stocking stuffers? They are ADORABLE! They smell great too… s’mores anyone? If not s’mores, there’s about a dozen other varieties available.
East Coast Candles also offers an Essentials line. Available in jar candles and simmering bars, the Essentials line is made from 100% soy wax and essential oil blends in 4 varieties: Relaxation, Clarity, Vitality and Sensual.
This dish candle blew me away. This is the candle I’m most torn about. It would be a perfect gift for a couple of people I know, but I just WANT it so bad. Whoever ends up with it though, I’m going to insist it gets used. I’ve seen too many beautiful candles like this become dust catchers in guest bathrooms and it would just be a shame not to use and enjoy these hand-made works of art. The detail in these strawberries is crazy… they look like real, perfect berries. Not just fruit, East Coast Candles make these gorgeous dish candles in baked goods, chocolate and holiday varieties. Those strawberries, though…
This post barely scratches the surface of what East Coast Candles has to offer. Pillars, votives and tea lights are also available, as are standard wax melts and simmering wax bars.
