No matter how delicious or beautifully iced it is, a birthday cake isn’t truly complete until it is topped with a few merry candles moments before you burst into song. Besides the fact that corner store birthday candles are bland and forgettable, surprising someone with birthday candles that complement their party’s theme, the cake’s design, special milestone birthday, or something that they truly appreciate helps to make their day a little more special. There are plenty of original, colorful, and unusual birthday candle designs out there, and while it helps to know what the guest of honor enjoys, there are a few key considerations to keep in mind when seeking out the best birthday candles available: color, size, quantity, price, and any special features.
