What do you do with all of those Holiday Candles that you get every year?

Where do you set them all and do you end up burning them. I have a friend from work that gives me one every year. What should I do with them all and do I just pile them up on the counter or what do you do with yours?

  • thankfully, I never get them...candles- along with several other "smelly" things give me a headache

    If it were me, I'd freecycle them- I'd want them out of my house ASAP

  • I burn them... I don't get as many as I would love to get (unless I buy them)... but if you don't want them and they are
    still wrapped or sealed, re-gift them thru-out the yr... place them in a cool place until you wish to gift them out...

  • anon 3:48 they pretty much give me headaches to but some are very pretty with glitter that I just sit around for the Holiday's then I put them away. I try & regift the ones that really smell tho because of my headaches. I don't know what freecycle is. I so wish my friend would take the time to really get to know me then maybe she wouldn't be buying me a candle every yr for the last 10 yrs.

  • I don't get candles I get nothing but bath products from everyone every year. I like it though! Literally I get enough to where I never have to buy bubble bath, soap, bath salts, or lotion EVER so it works out.

  • I LOVE CANDLES! I get some every year. I find nothing more relaxing than sitting around listening to music with some candles burning.

  • I LOVE them!!! Well, the good quality ones. My friend got me this one from Bath and Body works and I love it, I've been burning it for weeks.

    I also LOVE Yankee Candles lol. But if I didn't like candles, and they are wrapped, I would do like a PP said and regift them to someone who you know DOES like candles. Trust me for most of us who love them, you can never have too many.
