If you love the warm ambience of candlelight, but aren't quite as enthusiastic about the mess, frequent replacements, or potential risks that go hand-in-hand with real candles, a flameless model is a fantastic alternative. Flameless candles are battery operated and rely on small LED bulbs to provide light. Some even have a realistic flicker effect. Flameless candles can have either a sturdy plastic or real wax exterior. If you're trying to get as close to the real thing as possible, wax is a solid choice, but keep in mind that these can melt if heated or left in direct sunlight. Some flameless candles come with remote controls and often feature automatic on/off timers. Don't forget to factor in size and quantity while you shop.
