This is a great idea! LED Candles

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I know that some of us on this board love candles but hesitate to have them because of our furry children. I have been searching for alternatives and I think I found them. http://www.thinkgeek.com/homeoffice/lights/89d9/

Now, I'm going to order them and see how they work out, but it looks like a fantastic alternative to a real candle. The nice part is if a furry one gets involved a fire won't start.

What do you think?

This is also good for someone who is in college living in the dorms. I remember the no open flame rule all too well.

There is also something you can buy that looks like a short votive candle.
We have been banned by the fire dept from using real candles at our church for banquets etc ....and a friend found some at the Shipshewanna flea market that are battery opperated. They were a couple dollars each, but the battery lasts for around 200 hours and can be replaced. They are only about 1/2 inch high, and the only ones she found were white. They have a fake "flame" that flickers.
I had my Hubby buy some cheap wooden dowels the same size around as the candles, cut them into 1 1/2" length sections, set a candle on top of each piece of dowel and then wrapped them in a piece of shiny colored paper (to match our color decorating theme) held on with clear scotch tape (around and under side to keep the dowel from falling out of the paper "sleeve")and we dropped them into votive cups for our annual Mother-Daughter Banquet.
The women there were IMPRESSED to say the least and many asked where we got them.
I`m sure there is a source somewhere on the internet. Maybe look under battery operated votive candles????

I'm afraid of candles because of the fire risk, so I never, or very rarely (IE: when I have a romantic dinner) burn candles. Those look like a great alternative.

I found some of those at Walgreen's and several other places. I love them. My favorite candle holder is a big chunk of rose quartz, and it kept getting all smoky, nearly ruining it. Those work great in it.

I bought a few little LED tealights last year to put in my Jack-o-Lantern for halloween- it looked great! I was leary of putting a burning candle in there as i didn't want to leave it unattended....so the LED light was the perfect solution! I went back (dollar tree had them!) and got some more for Christmas to put in the little green glass tea light holders i had all over the house- it looked lovely! I still prefer real candles for the smell/scent...but i LOVE the LED alternatives....especially to use in decorations/etc or in areas i wouldn't want to put a real candle for fear of my furbabies getting into it!

I think Target has them too.

They suck.. Sorry... My parents bought them, and they aren't very good. They really aren't that bright, and only look like candles if all the lights are out, and it's quite dark.

My mom has something like that. They are actually wax. I think that's neat.
