A flicker of light attracts notice, so purchase birthday candles easily observed for their brilliance.
Choose novelty candles with multicoloured flames, or buy a pack of 12 candles, each a different colour. Honour loved ones by choosing birthday candles in their favourite colours. Personalise a large candle with a person’s name, age, or a message. Buy an extra first birthday candle for a toddler, so you can burn one and save the other as a memento.
