Our Story

From humble beginnings making candles for our children to sell at sausage sizzles and stalls at Nambour and Toowoomba markets, Burn Candles and Gifts has flourished into a thriving business. As owners of a butchery, we often used to joke if we had a bakery we could advertise as The Butcher, The Baker and The Candle Stick Maker. The store next door to our butchery became available for lease, so rather than be at the mercy of the weather on market days, we took a risk and opened Burn Candles and Gifts. At first, we had very little stock and started with small hay bales as shelving, but a year later we said farewell to the bales as the families of geckos started to take over. It’s funny looking back to see how our small hobby has transformed into a beautiful gift shop brimming with scented candles, soaps and bath bombs, homewares, art work and unique gift ideas. Now we’ve launched our website, we’re excited to make our candles available Australia-wide.
