Battery Operated Candles

Adding candles to your holiday decor immediately creates that warm, cozy feeling...but with a baby or toddler running around, a bunch of open flames isn't a great idea. Battery-operated candles are a great idea for young families.

At first glance, battery-operated candles may feel a little tacky- kind of like fake flowers. But they've come a long way and you can get them made of real wax, with the look of real dripping wax, but with no worries whatsoever. Is it exactly like real candles? No, but in our opinion, it's worth the trade-off for safety and peace of mind.

You can get a set of three pillar candles here, but we've also seen them in our local TJ Maxx or Marshall's for a lot less money.
