Great Gift Idea: Prize Candle | #TMMPrizeCandle @PrizeCandle

I love the element of surprise, especially trying to surprise friends and family. Just a couple weeks ago I tried to surprise my husband with a reunion and celebration of his coaching successes with his softball team alumni. Unfortunately he wasn’t thrilled about the surprise element at all. He wanted to know the details of the evening – a “Surprise” wasn’t good enough. what we were doing etc. But at the end, he did enjoy himself and seeing all the girls, but when I put a Prize Candle in front of him, he was as impatient as a kid.

We received a Prize Candle to sample, and took it with us camping. I just love hanging out around the picnic table chatting or over a meal, while burning a candle and a fire.   Continue reading
