Are you an aspiring plant parent who can’t seem to keep even the smallest succulents and cacti alive? Fear not, because we found a solution. Instead of tending to a terrarium, you may want to start with a terrarium candle instead.

These gorgeous terrarium candles are so lifelike, you’ll think they’re real plants at first glance. They’re made by Zoe Tang, the designer and founder of a soy candle studio in Vancouver, Canada, and available through UncommonGoods. Tang’s work is inspired by nature and full of color, which shows in these meticulously detailed terrarium candles.

The cactus terrarium candle has three little plants and smells like pine and vanilla, and the poppy terrarium candle has one flower and smells like white tea and jasmine. Can’t choose between the two? Pick up one of each.

The candles have exclusively five-star reviews and every purchaser echoes the same sentiment: They’re “almost too pretty to light,” but once you do, “the smell is amazing.” The solution is clear, then: Buy one for lighting, and one for looking at. That way, you get the best of both worlds.

Terrarium candles are officially our new go-to gift idea. They’re nice to look at, nice to smell, and will look great in any room of the house. What’s not to love?
