Handmade & sustainable leaving gift

Once in a while, everybody feels like escaping the 9-to-5 busyness. Not by actually running away, but by creating a moment of relaxation at home. And is there a better way to do this than getting comfortable on your coach with a movie, a snack and a drink? Yes, by also lighting some candles for this moment. The candles from Brandt aren’t just candles: we hand pour all our products and use soy wax from small farms, eco-cotton wicks and natural based oils.

To make things even better: we also use eco-friendly packaging. And to us this feels like our candles are the perfect leaving gift for your colleague or friend who considers himself or herself sustainable!

The perfect gift for a teacher

Imagine this scenario: your child absolutely loved the lessons from a certain teacher but unfortunately she is leaving. There would be no nicer gesture than giving a candle with a personal note as a leaving gift for this teacher. One from our Wood collection for example. She surely will think back about the lovely school camping trip when lighting one of these candles. One guess which student she’ll never forget?
