Carved Wooden Five Tealight Holder


Light up their life with this charming beech wood tealight holder that seems to have arrived from a bygone age.


This charmingly antique-looking tealight holder is a one-of-a-kind gift that’s ideal for special occasions like anniversaries, housewarmings, or weddings.

Perfectly imperfect, its distressed finish and aged patina suggest it’s much older than it really is. It has the nostalgic appeal of a discarded heirloom discovered in a junk shop.

Of course, it helps that it’s shaped from a slab of solid beech hardwood and then painstaking hand-finished to create the illusion of authentic old age. And, your personalised carving-style engraved text only reinforces the old craft aesthetic. Nobody would know it hadn’t been passed down though generations. Just don’t take it to the Antiques Roadshow!

Whether illuminating a cosy farmhouse kitchen or accentuating a thoroughly modern home, this wooden tealight holder fits right in.

If you’re thinking of gifting it, here’s some occasions when other customers have chosen it:-

  • For romantic occasions: candlelight is guaranteed to set the mood for romance. This tealight holder makes a great centrepiece for a candlelit dinner. Add a suitably heartfelt message for the final touch.
  • As a housewarming gift: welcome loved ones into their new abode with warmth and best wishes. Use the engraved carving to wish them well or display a family motto or inspirational words.
  • For retirees embarking on a new chapter in life: candlelight is the epitome of relaxation and tranquillity, symbolising the calm and peace of retirement. Send well wishes for a happy future in your personalised engraving.
  • Marking the 5th anniversary: the 5th is traditionally associated with wood, making this beech tealight holder a brilliant messenger of enduring love and commitment. Plus, candlelight amps up the romance in every situation!
  • A grown-up birthday: most folks have the stuff they need, so gifts should be something they wouldn’t buy for themselves. That’s where this candleholder fits the bill perfectly – especially for candle lovers!

Whatever the occasion and whoever you’re buying for, it’s difficult not to be charmed by this beautiful beech tealight holder and to enjoy having it in your home.
