Traditionally the wax anniversary gift is an offering between partners who've made it to 16 years together. Wax gifts can be made of beeswax soy wax, paraffin wax, gel wax, palm wax, and coconut wax. Beeswax is one of the more popular for pillar and taper candles. It is a natural wax and sustainable material. Beeswax is also known for its healing properties, making it a perfect choice to keep your relationship long and strong!
The two many things to consider when buying a wax anniversary gift are the product itself and what the product is made of. The item will say a lot about how well you know your partner and how much you value your relationship, so quality is important and the material impacts that directly. Beeswax is our top choice for material. Beeswax is very popular in the artisan community as both a higher quality and craft-friendly material.
You can find beeswax candles, beauty products, and even food items made with this sustainable material. When choosing a wax anniversary gift, consider your loved one's interests and hobbies. A beeswax candle might be the perfect way to relax after a long day or a set of bee-themed coasters could be perfect for the nature lover in your life. Of course, given this monumentous occasion, it may be a good idea to couple that with related gifts or activies like a spa day or a pamper basket.
Of course if beeswax isn't the route you want to take, here are some alternative materials to consider and their benefits:
There are many types of wax anniversary gifts available. You can find candles, tapers, votives, artwork, and more.
There are a number of ways to get creative with wax gifts for an anniversary. One way is to create a custom candle. This can be done by adding a personal message or initials to the candle. Another way to be creative with wax gifts is to make your own wax melts. This can be done by using a mold and adding your own fragrance to the wax. You can also add colorants, glitter, and other embellishments to the melts to make them unique. There are kits you can purchase online, and we will have some added to our list below.
Another way to create unique wax gifts is to make your own lip balm. This can be done by combining beeswax with various oils and flavorings.
Personalized wax seals for gifts are also a great way to add a special touch to your anniversary present. You can choose from a variety of designs and add your own message or initials.
