Candles make great hostess gifts, but they don't have to be boring. What makes a gift special is its uniqueness. Here are a few candles I found recently that are definitely not your run of the mill wicks.

Men can enjoy candles as much as women-especially if they smell like their favorite things: The Ballpark, Beer, Ribs and even a baseball glove! http://www.manterns.com/ has all of these scents and more. An 8 ounce candle is $9.99, a 16 ounce candle, $18.99. Perfect for your favorite bachelor!

The Beach-In-A-Can Candle from http://www.auntsadies.com/ is a suntan lotion scented candle. Your friend can light the candle, close their eyes and escape to the beach. $16.00

Have you ever had a candle that smelled good enough to eat? This 1/2 pound Blueberry Cobbler Jumbo Cupcake Candle will cause your mouth to water! The "cupcake" is topped with blueberries and cobbler crumbles all made of wax, and comes wrapped in clear plastic adorned with a pretty ribbon. Etsy.com-store: candleconfections $10.65 + shipping

I love this candle by http://www.pacificacandles.com/. It's Brazilian Mango Grapefruit Scented. This candle will send you straight to the tropics! This candle is made with a vegetable soy wax blend and comes in four sizes including a travel size.

Pop one of these candles in a pretty bag and you'll have a great gift!
