Talk about the perfect gift for somebody who grew up here and moved away.

Personally, I struggle with gift-giving. I try to be thoughtful, but I usually end up stocking up on gift cards and tossing them in an envelope. I mean, gift cards are always appreciated but, if there's one thing I've learned from growing up with my godmother. it's that a good, personal gift is something that you don't forget.

Think about it - who gave the best gifts when you were a kid? Not just stuff you asked for, but stuff that you didn't ask for, but loved anyway? These candles will absolutely fall into that category.
