Beautiful way to send a message

Laurel box holds a special place in my heart. I was introduced to Laurel box by a friend who gifted me a candle during a very difficult time in my life. I remember loving the gesture and feeling loved. If you are thinking of someone and want them to feel your presence, this is the way.


Beautiful sympathy gift to let someone know you’re thinking of them

Perfect sentiment

Love this as a gift and reminder to those who need to remember there is hope. Agree with other reviews that say the imagery is a bit deceiving in that it is more of a votive size. But the packaging and sentiment are gorgeous

Looked bigger

This is a lovely candle but I wished I had noted the size. It is a votive, rather than a candle. Other than that, I loved being able to send my friend an assortment of lovely things after her mom died. So special.

Just Perfect!

This was the perfect way to let my friend know I was thinking of her and to send her some comfort after the loss of her mother. Sometimes we don't know what to say or do so this was perfect.
I got a phone call from my friend and she was so happy to have received the beautiful candle that was packaged so beautifully and smelled wonderful. Even if for a moment she was happy and felt a bit of calm it was worth every penny and more!
I have always loved the quote that's on the candle which is why I chose it. We all need light when things are going dark. Thank you for creating these wonderful gifts. This will be my go to place to shop when I need to send light or comfort someone.

A Beautiful Tribute

The sentiment behind this candle is lovely, plus it smells wonderful and looks beautiful on my table. My husband’s memory is kept alive when we light this at our family time with my four daughters or when I sit with my morning coffee. Great quality and it arrives quickly.
