Lite of the Party

Believe it or not, PartyLite has been around for over 40 years! If you’ve ever attended a PartyLite event, then you’ll know what the brand is all about. They’re a peer-to-peer company that specializes in home fragrance products, namely in the form of candles, although they have some additional intriguing products. I had the chance to peruse the latest and greatest from PartyLite, and to demonstrate how far this company has come (from a single woman making candles in her home in the early 1900s), I’m highlighting a few of my fave gift ideas from this wildly expansive brand.

PartyLite Forbidden FruitsForbidden Fruits by PartyLite Scented Jar Candles – $32 each
First up, a Valentine’s-day friendly pick. Everyone looks better by candlelight, and these dark and mysterious beauties are designed to enhance any romantic atmosphere. Packaged in a black, beribboned box, each candle has a lush, rich, ultra fruity fragrance – from Fig Fatale to Coconut Cream to Tangerine Tease. Even if you’re not going all out for Valentine’s this season, why not gift her a little something to set the mood?

PartyLite Vine Mosaic CollectionVine Mosaic Collection – $25 – $105
Yes PartyLite is known for their candles – but god knows you need somewhere to put said flames. PartyLite has a huge collection of candleholders in a range of styles, from wall-hanging sconces to magnificent hurricanes to elegant centerpieces. My eyes gravitated toward this beautiful lineup of hand-applied tiled pieces for an earthy, almost sea-inspired look. It’s available in the votive holder and centerpiece you see above, as well as two sizes of hurricanes. Makes a lovely housewarming or wedding gift!

PartyLite Just Desserts Tea Light SamplerJust Desserts Tea Light Sampler – $22 for 18
You really can’t ever have enough tea lights, I think. They burn relatively quickly – these ones last for about 4-6 hours – allowing you to scent your home for a scrumptious afternoon or scintillating dinner party. It also gives you the chance to try out a bunch of fragrances and never get bored. I love the uber cute candy shop vibe of these delicious-smelling tea lights – with nose-tingling notes of Marshmallow Peppermint, Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and Lemon Lime Macaroon. Consider this next time you’ve got a hostess gift need!

PartyLite Jonathan AdlerJonathan Adler for PartyLite – $7 – $110
I love when brands pair up to bring their aesthetics together – as per uber chic (and generally pricy) designer Jonathan Adler lending some 70s-inspired prowess to PartyLite’s home decor and candles. For a fraction of what you’d pay for the designer’s chi-chi pieces you can pick up one of the line’s candle holders, exclusive home fragrance options, or unique decor pieces – like an elephant-shaped tea light holder or a Safari-themed piece of wall art. Way too cool!

Nature's Light Scented Mini Candle TrioNature’s Light™ by PartyLite Scented Mini Jar Candle Trio – $40
I adore candles with a wooden wick. If you’ve never lit one before, you’re in for a treat – they crackle and pop the way a rustic bonfire would (of course, they won’t explode like a bonfire will). PartyLite has a special ‘Nature’s Light’ collection that includes wooden wicks and an earthy motif. With lovely scents like RoseWood, White Cedar Leaf and Tamboti Safari, this cute trio of jar candles makes a wonderful birthday choice for your mother-in-law or a friend.

PartyLite ScentGlow WarmersScentGlow™ Warmers – $45 – $55 each
Looking for a festive candle alternative? PartyLite now carries a collection of ScentGlow™ Warmers. How do they work? All you do is plug the Warmer of your choice in, and the electric warmer breaks down the brand’s Scent Plus™ Melts, which are sold separately in literally dozens of aromas, like Vanilla Citron, Iced Snowberries, and Citrus Peel & Sage. The warmers themselves make cool housewarming gifts and come in tons of cool styles – from a pretty beaded or ceramic piece to cute animal shapes for the kids to a man cave-friendly sports styles like a baseball or soccer. This is, for the record, just one of several non-candle lines carried by PartyLite – be sure to check out other fragrant options like their diffusers and room sprays.
