Candles and Christmas have been inseparable since the earliest times, from the tradition of giving candles as a seasonal gift, to the 18th century fashion for adorning our Christmas trees with lit candles, to the traditional Advent wreath decorated with four candles representing hope, peace, joy and love. In our October blog we wrote about the central place that candles have held in our winter celebrations over millennia, just as they take pride of place at your Christmas table today.
Every Christmas is special, and this one is particularly meaningful after the difficult year that the world has gone through, so we’ve been preparing to help you make this a Christmas to remember with our Christmas Collection and our Christmas Gift Wrapping service. We think that the relaxing, heart-warming and uplifting effect of our natural soy wax scented candles is a perfect fit for the Christmas season, and our beautiful designs, featuring carefully chosen and exceptionally elegant candle glasses, make them a perfectly delightful fit for the Christmas stocking of someone special in your life.
In the Christmas of our imagination the gifts we exchange are lovingly crafted by skilled artisans in cheerful studios and workshops, just ask any child about Santa’s elves.
Of course, in the modern world the reality is usually very different, but not in our case! At EVA Candles our 100% soy wax glass candles are designed and hand-poured at our boutique studio in Wimbledon, London.
Our commitment to tradition and craftsmanship means that all of our candles are poured by hand using the finest natural soy wax, cotton and paper wicks and exceptional fragrance oils. We don’t have elves, but you can check out our November blog for a step-by-step description of our hand-crafted production process.
As the year comes to a close we would like to thank all of our customers and followers for your support. It’s been our pleasure to bring you exciting new products and to share our story with you through our website, social media, our events and all the great feedback and interactions we’ve had with you. We’re excited at the possibilities that the New Year brings for our brand of affordable luxury and we’re looking forward to lighting up 2021, so from everyone at EVA Candles we would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas!
