A gift for every week of the year

A gift for every week of the year

Recently we were asked to Express Post 5 of our Roll Your Own kits to a long term customer. A week later I got a thank you call and asked what they were for.

Turns out they were used to create the world's most thoughtful gift. Imagine opening a gift every week for an entire year, made by hand, by your favourite people on the planet, containing a wish, a message, a surprise or a thought for you... and a little candlelight to hold that wish.

Our client had bought the gift for her sister's 50th birthday party.  As each guest arrived, she gave them a couple of sheets of wax (& wick), a couple of strips of paper, a pen and a couple of pieces of twine and they created their gift.

I, honestly, think it is one of the best ideas I have come across. So good that I borrowed it (with permission) and made it as a wedding gift for very dear friends.

I also sought her permission to share it on my blog and to save her buying 5 kits in future, we've created The World's Most Thoughtful Gift as a product - giving you 52 sheets of wax and 52 pieces of wick to create your own... or you could do once a month wish candles for 4 lots of friends (with a few left over for you), or even once a quarter wish candles for 13 friends!

(A word at the outset - my skills as a beeswax candle-maker do not extend to photography. I am a lover of great photography and therefore constantly aware of the shortcomings of my own. If you can just shut your eye's and imagine the beauty of this gift, or how you would feel receiving this gift, I am sure you will appreciate what an extraordinary gift it truly is).
