Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and with it comes all manner of pink and red atrocities. Don’t know what I’m talking about? Then visit a certain aisle in your local Walgreens, for instance. It looks like V-Day threw up. If chocolates and teddy bears aren’t your thing, flick your Bic to this more subtle gift option: the Love candle from the Black & Light candle company. All Black & Light candles are designed to glow from wick to base, which means that the etched “love” will shine as bright as the area up top. Another bonus: each candle comes in a pretty, gift-ready box. It’s really the prefect present. And not one defenseless stuffed animal had to lose its life. No Dallas retailers, but you can buy online.
The event is virtual and free this year.
