With the holidays coming many accidents happen because of candles. Last year I found these wonderful candles. They are called flamelss candles. I got mine from QVC, (put "flameless candles" in the search)
Here how QVC describes them:
No flame, no fuss. Enjoy the ambiance and beauty of candlelight--without the mess of dripping wax or the safety hazard of an open flame--with this trio of battery-operated candles.
Crafted from vanilla-scented wax, each pillar flickers just like a real candle. An LED light creates the flame and the faux wicks cannot be lit accidentally. And thanks to the patented random-flickering technology, you can feel comfortable leaving them unattended or near children and pets, open windows and breezes, combustible materials, and on fine wood and surfaces. The collection is graduated in size and looks charming grouped together on a charger or set around a room.
Each candle requires 2 C batteries, not included. Light time per candle is approximately 350 hours.
What I love about these are how realisitic they look. They even flicker like a real candle. Now you can put these in your windows at Christmas time and not have to worry about fire. The batteries last a long time, about the same time as a Yankee candle. Last year I gave some as gifts. They even came with their own little organza bag.
