We were out looking for a housewarming gift for a friend, and spotted these chalkboard candles at our favorite go-to gift shop, Asrai Garden. Our friend is a minimalist, and really only likes the necessities in her home. So we thought this concept is great - not only does it make a great housewarming gift, but it will also have a function once the candle is gone. We see this being used as a pencil or make-up brush holder. It would also work great at the landing strip – takes up very little space and provides a spot to jot down some notes on your way out the door.
The Mine Chalkboard Candles are handpoured,100% pure soy wax. They come in several different scents, in a ceramic green or black chalkboard container (three pieces of chalk included). Ours cost $28, but we also found them online for less here and here. Top image by Rachel Wray, bottom image via Barnes & Noble.
