Fortune Cookies

Personalized Candle

Candles make amazing gifts! There are several colours, scents, and sizes to choose from. If you’d like to give someone a candle and personalize it a bit, you could engrave a message onto it.

Another option is to use that pillar candle and place it in a decorated jar. You may also create your own special candle if you’d prefer!

Bath Bombs

What is a better way to relax than taking a bath? Bath bombs can help make your bath even more relaxing. You can choose whichever colour and scent you’d like.
