The Best Gift Ideas Are Right Here!

Not sure what to get your boyfriend's mother for Christmas? Score some points with the boyfriend this holiday season with a personalized Christmas gift for his mother from the two of you! These ideas are sure to tell his mother (and him!) how much a keeper you truly are.

Holiday gift idea #1: Some say that "a picture is worth a thousand words". Photo gifts never fail with mothers, especially when their children are in them. Grab a digital camera and take your boyfriend out for a mini photo shoot. He may resist a first, but he'll love you for it later when he sees the priceless look on his mother's face as she opens her gift and finds a beautifully-framed collage of photos of her son in his Sunday best! Make sure your boyfriend picks the frame though!

Holiday gift idea #2: Create a customizable holiday gift with a personalized scented candle. Ask your boyfriend to find out his mother's favorite color and favorite scent so you can create a candles gift set with a personalized message. Women love candles for a variety of reasons. They create a romantic ambiance far greater than any electric powered light can. Scented candles make rooms smell great, make women feel more attractive, lightens their mood and spirits and even plays a role in "lovemaking".

Holiday gift idea #3: Show your boyfriend's mother how much you appreciate her (and how well her son turned out!) by treating her to a nice, quiet and relaxing day at the spa. Every woman enjoys pampering herself and your boyfriend's mother is no different. If a spa package is too much for you, you can always bring the spa experience to to her with a customizable holiday gift spa kit that includes mineral bath products, fragrant lotions, a manicure set, holiday scented candles, and a how-to book about creating a spa experience in the comforts of one's own home.

Holiday gift idea #4: Another unique Christmas gift idea is to create a gift basket filled with your boyfriend's mothers favorite things. Ask your boyfriend to find out what 10 things his mother never leaves home without and fill your personalize gift basket with 5-7 of these items whether it be her favorite lip gloss, chewing gum or maybe even a travel calendar that fits in her purse.

Whatever holiday gift idea you decided to go with, make sure that you don't go overboard if you've only just started dating your man. If you've been dating for awhile, consider a more personalized gift that reflects their personal interests, and if you're in a long term relationship with your man, you can get an even nicer gift if you get something from the both of you.

Lumnique custom scented candles are uniquely personalized and sentimental gifts, custom-designed by you for the unique personality and lifestyle of the recipient. Build your own custom scented candle at www.lumnique.com.

Learn a little about Lumnique!

Lumnique was founded to offer our customers a more intimate, gift-giving experience. We provide an avenue in which they are able to venture and explore candles with personal consideration and care at the point of their creation. Our goal was to bring new life and meaning to the simple giving and receiving of a scented candle.

The process of making and burning scented candles has been a part of life for generations; from our basic need for light to the many rituals and customs people exercise today. We tried modernizing this candle-making arena by building a forum in which our customers are able to partake in this experience by creating their own.

Each of our Lumnique personalized scented candles is initiated, tailored, and hand-poured for a unique purpose, dictated to us by our customers. Three elements are variable; the symbolic meaning of the candle, the color, and the fragrance—each one tied to a special, specific meaning. Our Lumnique customers are the true creators. Beautiful, unique candles are the end result.

We encourage you to imagine, create, share, and enjoy.

Choosing the Perfect Gifts for Your Bridesmaids


Your wedding day represents the culmination of months of anticipation and planning - the event you’ll remember for a lifetime. You’ve chosen your attendants carefully from among your closest friends and family members, and now you’re looking forward to sharing with them all the joy and excitement your big day brings. When the time comes, you will want to honor each of your attendants with a very special gift, one designed to show your appreciation for their support and to acknowledge the unique and wonderful roles they’ve played in your life thus far.

The ideal bridesmaid gift is unexpected, sentimental and perfectly tailored to your recipients’ tastes and lifestyles. While traditional gifts like wedding jewelry and accessories are nice, a personalized bridesmaid gift makes each of your attendants feel special. Here are a few ways to create the perfect personalized bridesmaid gift for the most important women in your life.

Think Luxury

The perfect personalized bridesmaid gift transcends the ordinary and offers a touch of luxury. Spa-inspired gifts such as bath oils, cozy robes, personal care products and richly scented candles offer an opportunity to pamper, appeal to the senses, promote relaxation, and surround your attendants in comfort and tranquility. Ideally, your gift should be something your attendants wouldn’t necessarily buy for themselves, but that will enhance their lives in some way and bring joy for a long time to come.

Get Personal

To truly show your appreciation, your personalized bridesmaid gift should reflect and celebrate the unique personalities of each of your attendants. Rather than limit yourself to your own favorite colors, textures and scents, show your attendants how special they are by considering their own individual tastes. Gifts that can be tailored to each woman’s personality, like custom scented candles, offer a unique opportunity to create a completely one-of-a-kind gift for each of your attendants.

Express Yourself

Don’t forget the power of the written word when creating each personalized bridesmaid gift. Take a moment to think about your history with each of your bridesmaids and do your best to put your feelings into words. Find a way to convey what you love about her - share a favorite memory, write a short poem, or simply tell her why you’re grateful to have her in your life. Taking the time to express yourself carefully and thoughtfully will mean the world to each of your attendants and reinforce the unique and special nature of your relationship.

Create a Beautiful Presentation

As with every aspect of your wedding,presentation is everything. Turning each personalized bridesmaid gift into a one-of-a-kind work of art will make it all the more special. A beautiful box, careful hand-wrapping and impeccably-chosen details are more than just a feast for the eyes, they’re a reminder to each of your attendants that she is worthy of the same kind of time and attention you’ve invested in every other aspect of your wedding.

Scented Candles and Their Benefits

One way to help you achieve your desired goal is to set the mood. If you are stressed out, take a candle light bath using the scents for relaxation. Write a poem, a story or read a book while using concentration fragrances. Have a romantic candle lit dinner to scented Aromatherapy candles made to make you feel sensual.

Fragrances to help you relieve stress include lavender, chamomile, geranium and rose. If you are looking to enhance your concentration, you will want to choose, lemon, lemongrass, orange, grapefruit or bergamot fragrances. Peppermint, spearmint, cinnamon, vanilla and rosemary scented candles will revitalize your body and allow you to gain extra energy. When you want to create a sensual mood and setting, go for vanilla, rose and sandalwood. Make sure to look for "Pure Essential Oils" on labels when shopping for your Aromatherapy candles.

At some point, you may decide you want to combine different scents. While combining candles together is okay to do, you want to make sure that you don't send a mixed message to your body. You don't want to burn a lavender scented candle with a cinnamon scented candle. On one hand, your body will receive the message to relax but on the other hand, your body will receive the signal to gain energy.
