A personalised candle - for the impossible...

For years when I've need a special gift, I've personalised a candle but I couldn't work out a way of viably offering the service.  Well, I worked it out! Need a gift for that impossibly stylish friend that you're always a little nervous to buy for? Looking for something to give in that situation where words are impossible (I particularly find this so when someone is grieving and words just seem completely superfluous but you want to show that you care)? Uninspired by the "off the shelf" options for that special occasion that you want a really memorable gift for? … allow us to personalise a candle for you. To start with we're launching personalised candles with a range of beautiful quotes - with the quote on one side of the candle and a personal message from you to your friend on the other side - and with number candles that are perfect for special birthdays (because we're always being asked for them)!  Imagine giving a gift of light personalised by a bona fide artistic person, armed with a paint brush, on Sydney's Northern Beaches.  No laser printing going on here folks, this is the real McCoy! Tell us your favourite quote (it doesn't need to be one of these) in the comments field below.  We'll hold a vote next week and if it's voted #1 we'll send you a candle with the winning quote on it. Each quote is one entry - multiple quotes, multiple entries!
