Craving candles

The holiday season is aglow at Watercourse Way. As Santa readies his sleigh and carolers hone their vocal chords, our retail department has stocked up on gift-worthy goodies. And this year Watercourse is brimming with an eclectic array of one of the season’s favorites: the candle.

“Aviary” candles by Mine Design

A cornucopia of candles – from short and tall to soy and wax – can be found at Watercourse Way through December and beyond. Here’s a snapshot at some of the luminous offerings from Los Angeles-based candlemakers Mine Design:

• Olive and Castano: This soy-wax candle sits in hand-blown, hand-cut glass “to create a fine diamond pattern reminiscent of the 1930s.” The artisanal candle is date stamped with triple-blended perfume grade scents. The hand-stamped wood box makes for a gorgeous holiday presentation.

• Aviary: These soy-wax candles in porcelain make fantastic gifts for the bird lovers in your life. Each candle features a porcelain owl, cardinal or hummingbird that can be perched atop the candle’s edge or used separately as an ornament or for decoration. The candles come in three different fragrances and include a small nest and gift card.

“Chalkboard” candles by Mine Design

• Chalkboard Candles: Personalize your gift with Mine Design’s writeable “Chalkboard Candles” (chalk included). Made of 100% clean-burning soy wax and available in eight different scents, the Chalkboard Candles are perfect for artists, writers and teachers. The smaller tin candles also make great stocking-stuffers.

And if none of these wick-powered wonders suit your fancy, fret not. Any gift card in the amount of $150 or more purchased during the holiday season scores you a complimentary candle. The gorgeous, tin-encased candle features floral and aviary design and makes a perfect gift, stocking stuffer or treat for yourself.

To top everything off, all candles in the store are 20% off through Dec. 31.

Happy holidays!
