Candlelight Sales Director Debbie Isles gives her thoughts on what retailers should be stocking for Mothers’ Day (31 March 2019).
“There are some exciting gift ideas for Mother’s Day this year. The Blush & Mint range of candles and reed diffusers has a contemporary, elegant feel, designed for ladies who like that extra bit of luxury. Attractively presented in peach and teal boxes, these gifts feature an appealing pineapple fragrance, with names including ‘Siesta’, ‘Paradise’ and ‘Tropic’.
These candles and reed diffusers are complemented by an inspirational range of home decorations. This includes Trinket dishes, which continue to soar in popularity. For 2019, Candlelight has introduced a stoneware hexagonal Trinket dish in white with gold effect, plus a gold and pink heart-shaped version, both of which make an ideal Mother’s Day gift. The range also includes a 25cm jewellery stand with marble base, to add that extra touch of glamour to the dressing table.
Glass plaques are a popular trend and this range a contains 20cm hanging glass plaque with the heart-warming slogan ‘Do good & be kind’. We are also offering a range of attractive photo frames, ideal for mums to keep pictures of their loved ones close, one with pink marble effect, one with pink and gold edges and one grey with gold edges, to fit with contemporary home styling.
Gin and Prosecco have seen significant growth in popularity in recent years and drink-inspired candles and reed diffusers are perfect for Mothers’ Day. Our new range boasts very authentic fragrances and offers great shelf appeal.
Each tin includes an innovative ring pull top, which gives customers a unique gift experience. Testers are also cleverly designed so customers can easily smell the fragrance without the need to open the tin.
Prosecco fragranced candles are displayed in tins with a contemporary monochrome design, which complements the current black and white trend in interiors. The quirky message is ‘Nothing PROSECCO can’t fix’.
The Gin candle tins feature more vibrant pink, green and gold tones, with the messages ‘Gin & bare it’, ‘Gin fizz bang’ and ‘Gin is liquid sanity’. The designs are contemporary and the packaging is fun and vibrant and is designed to maximise shelf appeal.
When it comes to Mothers’ Day gifts, the packaging is equally as important as the gift itself, which is why our designers develop the two in conjunction with each other. The Gin and Prosecco candle tins give customers a unique gift buying experience and make the most of the modern trend towards these popular drinks.”
