Where to Use Flameless Candles in Your Home

At the end of a hard day, the dancing flame of a fragrant candle will surely aid in relaxation. But if you have children or pets running about, or you’re simply concerned you’ll forget to extinguish the flame, a flameless candle is a great alternative. (Just make sure the candle plate doesn’t have a spike.) And you don’t have to sacrifice your favorite features of real candles, either. Many LED candles have a flickering flame that emulates candlelight, some with the added bonus of a timer. Scented flameless candles are perfect if you’re still craving a unique aroma, while LED drip candles have the look of melted wax.

Flameless candles are available in many colors and sizes, so you can find just the right candle or flameless candle set to accent your decor. Click here to view a variety of flameless candles.
