I heard about these battery operated candles a couple years ago and I thought it sounded kinda lame. Why would you want fake candles when you could have real ones? But now, I am totally obsessed with them. First of all, looking at the candle from the outside, you would never know it is not real. They are made with real wax, have a flickering light that looks EXACTLY how a candle looks, and some of them are scented. With having kids, I LOVE these candles!
My mom just saw them at costco the other day and bought them for as a little gift. I love when she does that! (mom: hint hint) They came in a pack of 4 with the batteries included and they have the most amazing vanilla scent. I only light my candles when I have company over. Even though I absolutely love the look of candle light, I am not going to light candles when it's just a typical evening at home eating dinner with the fam. First of all, I would have to rummage through my junk drawer to find my lighter or matches. (Not that that is a big deal, but with my little monkies running through the house, I'm not gonna go looking for my lighter) With the flameless candles, it is a flick of a switch and there is a timer too if you needed that! I know. It's the little things in life that excite me. My favorite part. I love my candles in my vases and lanterns, but I never light them when they are inside something because I don't want the wax to get over everything. These are perfect for that problem. Also, I have sconces up on the wall that are close to my curtains and actually, one time I blew out the candle and some wax dripped on my sofa. So, I am loving these new candles. The inside looks real besides the fact that there is no flame. :)
