Flameless candles are safe, affordable, trendy and aesthetically pleasing. Battery operated flameless candles have come a long way since their first inception. The new and improved candles are made from real wax, have an internal LED bulb which glows from within and a blackened wick. They are now extremely realistic and most candles have a built-in timer (automatically turns itself on) which gives the user the option of 4hrs/6/hrs of glow time or an on/off switch.
Flameless candles give a warm ambiance to every room, are enjoyable without the worry of flames or wax and most importantly pet-friendly. They can be tucked in a bookcase, scones, or near window treatments which would be hazardous with real candles.
If you have a passion for flameless candles like I do check out QVC's Candle Impressions and Home Reflections for a variety of quality flameless candles that can be used indoors/outdoors.
