La Bella Baskets Candle of the Month Club

Everyone Loves Candles

Have you ever met a person, male or female, who does not like the aroma of a highly scented candle? Imagine your favorite aroma, be it coconut , hibiscus, cherry or cinnamon, filling the room: Whether you are a stay-at-home mother or a professional wrestler, it does not matter. Everyone loves candles.

Certainly a one-time gift can be very thoughtful, but imagine your gift arriving month after month. A gift arriving each month will renew thoughts of the gift-giving occasion.

Candle gifts that arrive every month apply to just about any happy holiday or occasion. Consider a wedding gift. For the entire first year of a young couple’s marriage, they will receive a pleasant gift each and every month, reminding them of that special day.

As part of the membership your gift receiver will receive a 28 oz. candle every month. Your candle of the month will correspond with the months and seasons in which they are shipped. How convenient is that! One soy candle delivered right to your home or office!

About our candles:

Each 28 oz  Soy Candle can burn up to 210 hours

Our soy candles are made with the natural oil from soybean plant so they burn cleaner and emit significantly less soot. That means more enjoyment and healthier air quality for you and your family.

Each and every candle is carefully hand poured for the highest quality. No harmful additives added in any of our candles.

These jar candles feature a second candle in the lid!  So, you will be able to burn the candle and jar lid side by side.

These are the scents you will receive each month:
January Candle – Night Blooming Jasmine
February Candle – Berries and Cream
March Candle – Lavender Vanilla
April Candle – Chamomile Rain
May Candle – Lucy’s Garden
June Candle – Santorini Breeze
July Candle – Tropical and Orange
August Candle – Planet Earth
September Candle – Warm Apple Strudel
