Candles are always a great gift to give because they're useful and impart calm, relaxing vibes. I'd say that's a gift that delivers! The American made candle space is crowded, so if you're looking for a really special candle, I highly recommend Milkhouse Candle Company for their clean-burning soy wax candles. What I love most about their candles are the amazing fragrances that never smell artificial or fake, they burn long, and they burn clean. The scents linger long after the candle is out too. Milkhouse employs 26 people at its new facility in St. Ansgar, Iowa. Enjoy the calming scent of coffee, accompanied by notes of vanilla, cinnamon, and hazelnut all day long with Milkhouse's Cup O' Joe candle.
