Lighters Candle Company

Lighters Candle Company creates minimalist inspired, fun and sassy quote candles and other wax based products.

Lighters Candle Company was created in the fall of 2016 by a husband and wife duo, from Prince Edward Island, Canada. Being candle lovers ourselves, we casually began making uniquely scented candles at home that were clean and classy but had a little spunk. The demand was huge, and here we are! We created a line of quote candles with inspirational, motivational and sassy but fun labels. We love making gift buying easier! We listen to our followers and have grown quickly in our first year with a new line of candles geared towards men as well.
Price Range: $4.95-16.00

1 thought on “2017 Support Local Atlantic Business Gift Guide”

  1. People don’t know that scalp therapy shampoos for fast hair growth (obviously with no sulfates, no parabens or DEA) even exist. Individuals can now enjoy longer hair and experience more alternatives. Definitely worth considering.
