Flameless Candles Flicker Like Real Candles Without The Mess

Candle Impressions Mirage LED Wax Pillar Candles With Timer – $19.99 – $22.99

These new Candle Impressions Mirage LED Wax Candles from Bed Bath and Beyond offer all the warm, romantic flickering light that a real candle gives off, only without all the mess from melting wax.  They also operate on a timer so they will politely turn themselves off unlike real candles.

When I first saw these in a window display at a high end patio furniture at night, I wondered why the shop keepers would leave candles burning at night when the store was closed.  The candles seemed to have a real flickering flame.  Little did I know that they were these Mirage LED candles made from real wax.

Bed Bath & Beyond is offering these same candles at $19.99 – $22.99 each.  What a fabulous gift idea for house warming, birthdays or even the holidays.
