I'm always looking for cute little gift sets that have meaning... to gift large groups of people... that don't cost a fortune.  I know - that's a lot of requirements to meet.  And every once in a while someone introduces me to a new tradition that I just have to pass along.  


If you don't know about the Bayberry Tradition it's time you get familiar.  A bayberry candle timed to burn down after midnight on Christmas Eve or New Year's Eve will bring health to the home & wealth to the pocket for the New Year - or here's to hoping... at the very least it makes a cute gift & an even cuter tradition.  


 I started out with this card explaining the tradition.  


 I purchased black matchbooks from Etsy to personalize - hopefully your handwriting is better then mine!



I got these mercury glass votives for really cheap at a bridal expo & purchased my bayberry candles from Yankee candle.  I really suggest a votive because a jar candle or even a taper candle can burn on & on forever & it may be hard to time it so it doesn't burn down before midnight - ruining the tradition - or you're not up all night waiting for it to burn down - missing out on beauty sleep so you don't look your best on the big day!



Put the matches, votive & candles in a cellophane bag with some pretty ribbon.  




Hand stamp a gift bag.   


 And voila you have a pretty gift with a special meaning too!



"A bayberry candle burned to the socket brings health to the home & wealth to the pocket"


I have to say the people I gifted these to thought they were so cute & I can't wait to use mine New Year's Eve.


So what do you guys think... cute or a no go?


Cheers - Hal
