So it seems winter is officially here. The dark nights have arrived and as I don't have an open fire in my house I feel the next best thing to make my house feel all festive and cosy is to burn a few candles.
However, since I have an 11 month old who has just started toddling I've been apprehensive about lighting candles. Of course I always keep them well out of reach, but accidents can happen so I tend to only have my candles lit when baby goes to bed. It seems I've found a solution though....
These LED remote control candles from Paramount Zone are an ideal alternative to real candles.
These candles are flameless and and don't heat up at all so you don't need to worry about fire or burns. They can be used just about anywhere, and as there is no real flame to be blown out by wind you can even use them outside if you want.
I love the fact that they work by remote control too. Not only can you turn them on and off at the touch of a button, but you can adjust the brightness, choose whether you want them to flicker or not and there is even a timer function. This means the candles will switch off automatically after 4 or 8 hours, which makes them a nice relaxing alternative to using a night light I think!
I was also very impressed by how realistic these candles are. The candles have a real wax finish and flicker as real candles do, so unless someone spots your remote control they wouldn't be able to tell the difference between these and a real candle! If you want to see these brilliant candles in action you can watch THIS VIDEO.
You get three candles in a set (for £12.99), a small, medium and large candle. This would make them ideal for a decorative centrepiece on your Christmas dinner table, and you don't have to worry about then burning out (glow time is advertised as 50000 hours) or spilling wax on your best table cloth!
I think these candles are superb. They look realistic and have so many uses. I also think they are great value too, I'm going to save a lot of money not having to replace burnt out candles!
I think these would make a great Christmas gift for any candle lovers like myself, but if you are looking for some more great gift ideas there are some fantastic ones HERE.
