There are a couple suppliers in the U.S. who import candles from Germany and sell them online. Track one of them down and order early in the season. Its important to bear in mind that you need both the Christmas Candles and the Christmas Tree Candle Holders to go with them. Without the holders, you wont have a way to mount the candles on your tree.
Its not hard. One of the best ways to step back from the brink, slow down and restore some sanity to the holidays is to ditch the electric lights and LED Christmas lights and go green. Replace your energy-gobbling lights with Real Christmas Tree Candles. Or use fewer electric lights and add Christmas Candles. Either way, you wont regret it. The sight of your Christmas tree awash in the natural glow of real candlelight will stop your friends and family in their tracks and make them go weak in the knees. Its radiant and indescribably beautiful.
Thats not to say, of course, that all homemade candy is easy to make. Some candies are quite complex for the beginner, especially those involving a syrup. A syrup is water and sugar that is simmered to a particular temperature. The temperature you need varies with the outcome you want to produce, and sometimes its easy to get it wrong. And that could ruin the candy.
So if youre new to candy making start with some simple home made candy recipes, and start well before Christmas so that you can have some time to perfect your technique. And if youre out to make a great Christmas gift why not make that special person a complete candy gift basket and demonstrate your candy making prowess. Make a selection of candies, find a lovely wicker basket and some cellophane, buy a nice bottle of wine or 3 and pack all those candies and other goodies into a gift basket. Very few people would be unhappy to get a Christmas gift like that.
Who says that Christmas is only for the rich and famous? They are wrong because even middle class and poor people can celebrate the event in their own simple way. Despite the limited finances you have, you can still share your blessings by giving small tokens and personalized gifts. You need not worry because the spirit of Christmas is not about how expensive your gift is but its the thought the counts most.
