Luxury scented candles for Christmas

Christmas is a bright and busy explosion for the senses. There are familiar traditions, sights and sounds. Make luxury scented candles part of your new Christmas traditions. Here’s why – and how.

Smells and scents can really bring Christmas home – the fresh smell of the tree, of Christmas dinner being prepared or orange and clove decorations. Frankincense and myrrh, as in the advent story, are perfumes and essential oils. So there are lots of smells associated with Christmas time.

Candles are closely associated with Christmas and Christianity too. Families who don’t use candles much during the rest of the year might get some out for Christmas. Tealights for a bit of comfort in the dreary winter nights, votive candles for a table centrepiece, or even an advent candle to mark the passing of the month.

So scented candles are a great way to blend those two traditions. And create a new one for you and your family.

The aroma of luxury scented candles can become an essential memory of Christmas

Luxury Scented Candle by BoxedBloomsAt Boxed Blooms we have four luxury scented candles to choose from: vanilla, citrus, lavender and jasmine. They all come beautifully presented in a glass jar, tied with a ribbon and lovely packaging. So they are perfect for yourself, or as a gift. The burn time of 40-45 hours means you will get plenty of use and the joy of luxury scented candles day after day.

Boxed Blooms also has a beautifully designed range of thank you cards. Perhaps as well as sending out the Christmas cards you can send a special thank you? It is sure to be appreciated.

And for an extra special gift at a busy time of year, show someone how much you love and appreciate them with roses. A single red rose, beautiful bouquet of a dozen roses or the extravagant two dozen roses is a thoughtful and special pre-Christmas gift.

The most relaxing aroma candles

For the most relaxing time, aroma candles are a soothing and tranquil way to unwind. Scented aroma candles can be used for a candlelit dinner, a luxurious bath, or a treat over a cup of tea first thing in the morning before the rush of the day sets in.

Aroma candles to set the mood

A sweet, subtle aroma from a scented candle really sets the mood. Whether that is for relaxation or romance is up to you. Between the gentle flicker of the candle and the beautiful scents it is easy to unwind and let the stresses of the day slip away.

Luxury Scented Candle from BoxedBloomsWhich is why aroma candles also make a great gift. It’s the thought that counts and when you buy someone a scented candle the thought is more than the gift. The thoughtfulness is the gift of relaxation and luxury, of taking time out and pampering.

Aroma candles are a little luxury in amongst the hustle and bustle of everyday life. Especially as the dark nights draw in and the cold weather arrives. The busy seasonal holidays keep people occupied shopping, planning, cooking and hosting.

It’s easy to get caught up in making things nice for others. Not taking the time for ourselves. If there is someone like that in your life they will be touched by a gift of aroma candles.

The aroma candles from BoxedBlooms come in a beautiful presentation box, wrapped in a ribbon. Choose from four gorgeous aromas of lavendar, jasmine, vanilla and citrus. They are all guaranteed to be a hit. And with a burn time of 40-45 hours there’s a lot of enjoyment from one candle.

BoxedBlooms offers free next day delivery on all our gifts. Maybe you can pair the candle with a thoughtful thank you card? Or a bouquet of our red roses?

Scented candles for those long winter nights

It’s the last full week of British summertime. Though with the country being battered by storms it stopped feeling like summer a while ago. Once the clocks go back next weekend the long, dark nights will draw in.

Perhaps you like autumn for the chance to snuggle down and get comfy, watching the wind and rain outside the window. Or perhaps you miss the light and long days of summer. Either way, you can make the most of the dark evenings with a scented candle.

Luxury Scented Candle by BoxedBlooms

Our range of four sublime scented candles are the perfect companions for autumn and winter. Candlelight is always cheering and lends a sense of intimacy. 

Our scented candles are perfect for a gift or for yourself. They come in a beautiful presentation box and wrapped with ribbon. The glass jar adds to the luxury. And they have over 40 hours of burn time.

So if you get one now and use it for a half an hour a night it will still be going by Christmas. You could light it while eating dinner, or having a bath. Relax and let the gentle aroma carry you away.

Or have the gentle flickering and subtle smells keep you company while curling up and binge watching the latest must-see TV series. Whatever gets you through the long, dark evenings.

Choose from the luxurious scents of lavender, jasmine, vanilla or citrus. With free next day delivery you could be enjoying your scented candle in no time at all.

They make great gifts too, perhaps with some roses as well? October is a great month for roses and you can make the gesture extra special by including a scented candle.

Why October is a great month for roses

October is a great month to send that special someone a beautiful bouquet of roses.

And that is exactly why.

There’s no better time to send “just because” roses. No special occassion necessary.

Now the romantic, lazy, late evenings of the summer are over and the chill is creeping in. Before the hustle and bustle of Christmas shopping. Make autumn something to smile about with a flower delivery.

Boxed Blooms make rose delivery so easy. Find out why boxed flowers are the simple, clever way to send flowers. With great prices, great quality, free next day delivery and our super guarantees. You are never left wondering what’s going on with your order – we have fantastic proactive notifications so you stay up to date.

If roses aren’t quite right how about a scented candle? Perfect for settling down and relaxing on a windy October night. Our candles come beautifully wrapped and packaged. Choose from four soothing fragrances and enjoy over 40 hours of scented bliss.

Or take the opportunity to send a thank you card. Revive the lost art of correspondence and have a pack of thank you cards ready to go. We have three lovely designs and the option of a mixed pack if you can’t make up your mind. Get some more tips on different ways to say thank you.

Thank you cards and five ways to say thank you from BoxedBlooms

The art of correspondence might be fading away but that can give it even more impact. Sending thank you cards can really brighten someone’s day and sadly isn’t really expected anymore.

So here are five ways to say thank you – featuring thank you cards and a little something special.

Saying thank you for a gift?

Make sure to take a quick picture of the gift in action and get a few photos printed off. You can do this easily at home or cheaply at a self service counter in lots of shops and supermarkets. Include the snap in the thank you cards!

Sending a lot of thank you cards?

Sending thank you cards for wedding presents, or gifts for a new baby or other events where you had a lot of gifts? Like sending a photo above, you could bulk print photos of the special day, baby or other reminder of the event. Or include some other little souvenir or trinket.

Say thank you with flowers

You can show your appreciation with some lovely blooms alongside a thank you card. Or how about a scented candle for something a little bit different? Inexpensive but thoughtful gifts are a lovely gesture.

Send an IOU

Not every favour needs to be strictly quid pro quo but you could add a specific IOU to your thank you card. Sometimes people find it hard to take up a “let me know if there’s anything I can do” but might be more likely to respond to your offer of a night’s babysitting.

Thank you for being you

We are all guilty of not letting people know how much they mean to us. Thank you cards don’t need to be for anything specific – a thank you for support over the years, or “just because” can have even more impact.

The summer is over and as of next week – 22nd September – autumn will officially begin. Don’t let the grey skies, wind and showers get you or your loved ones down. Now would be a perfect time for a flower delivery to cheer up a special someone and show you care.

Autumn can be made a fun time of year. The leaves start to show spectacular displays of colour and a rustic feel comes over the country. It’s time to get the woolly jumpers out, the tea or hot chocolate brewing and to get cosy. There are lots of events to look forward to, like Halloween and Bonfire Night and the winter holiday season is just on the horizon.

Add in an extra special flower delivery of beautiful roses from BoxedBlooms. Choose from our single red rose, romantic dozen red roses or extravagant two dozen red roses. You get great value as well as amazing guarantees and a straightforward ordering and flower delivery process.

It’s so easy to brighten up someone’s day with a flower delivery from BoxedBlooms

Choose your bouquet confident that there are no hidden charges and you get free next day delivery.

When your flowers are ready to be sent you will get a photo of the exact bouquet you have bought. You and the lucky recipient are kept up to date with delivery notifications. The innovative box packaging means the flowers can be left in a safe place or even posted through the door in the case of the single red rose.

You could even add a luxurious scented candle for a warm and cosy night in. Leave the bad weather outside and get settled with a bouquet of roses and a scented candle – sounds like the perfect way to celebrate autumn.

Greetings cards in bulk for hassle free organisation

There are so many advantages to buying your greetings cards in bulk. Remembering birthdays and special occasions one at a time is not the most efficient. Buying cards individually is a hassle. And that’s just the regular events, never mind all the one-off congratulations, get well, thank you or condolences you might have to send.

The solution is to buy your greetings cards in bulk. Dedicate a block of time and energy to doing the full job and you will free yourself up in the long run.

Tips on getting your greetings cards in bulk

Go through your calendar and pick out the birthdays – hence birthday cards you need. If there are lots you could do this quarterly, or you can get it all done for the year in one fell swoop. Buy however many cards you need. You can label them with post-its to remind you which was for who.

If there are any big events coming up, you can do the same. Weddings you are attending, anniversaries, graduations, babies on the way… It’s simpler to get all those cards in advance. It means you can spend more time choosing something nice. Rather than a rushed buy in the supermarket during your regular shop just days before the event.

Don’t forget all the little events that happen without a schedule. You can build up a stock of nice cards for retirements or new jobs, sympathy cards, get well cards and thank you cards. It’s nice to be able to respond quickly to these things. Being prepared in advance takes the stress out of it all.

BoxedBlooms has a range of greetings cards in bulk including thank you cards. They come in packs of twenty and in three designs, or as a mixed pack.

Pack of greetings cards at the ready

How much more organised could you be with a pack of greetings cards ready to go?

Big events and occasions always seem to catch us on the hop. For instance, right now Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind. But it’s the beginning of September and it will be here before you know it. Birthdays are the same, creeping up on us. Never mind all the little “congratulations” events, the thank yous, get wells, and others that pop up with next to no notice.

Traditionally we buy our greetings cards on the hop too. The particularly organised among you might manage to buy a few month’s worth in bulk. But it means we are always running to catch up and it isn’t as efficient as it could be.

But if you buy a pack of greetings cards you always have some on hand ready to go

It’s pretty standard for Christmas cards but the rest of the year we rely on this piecemeal approach.

A pack of greetings cards solves all that. Keep your thank you cards, get well soon cards, congratulations cards and sympathy cards well-stocked and be ready for anything. You can quickly send the card without having to add it to your shopping list and then worrying it is arriving too late.

BoxedBlooms offers a pack of greetings cards for thank you cards, available in a set of 20, complete with envelopes. They come in three designs or you can get a mixed pack of all the designs. They are perfect for showing your appreciation, and reviving the lost art of correspondence.

Soon a pack of greetings cards will be available for all the other big events too.

So get organised, get your pack of greetings cards stocked up, and be ready for anything.
