Un cadeau avec un thème de la sécurité la Saint-Valentin

title

By Lisa Braxton

Weeks ago, my 18-year-old step-daughter Elizabeth let my husband and me know what she wanted for Valentine’s Day: flowers, a fruit bouquet, chocolates, and candles.

I volunteered to go shopping for the candles. I selected a set of ivory pillar candles, laced with the sweet aroma of vanilla. They’re elegant and eye catching and come with a decorative rock garden. They also have an on/off switch and remote keypad. Their flickering flame effect is powered by batteries.Elizabeth is away at college, halfway across the country, living in a dorm. I wanted to help complete her gift list while keeping her safety in mind. NFPA’s Candle Safety tips sheet, in addition to advising on how to use candles with care, encourages the public to think about using flameless candles in the home, which look and smell like traditional candles.

The College Campus Fire Safety tips sheet advises burning candles only if the school permits their use, placing candles away from anything that can burn, never leaving a candle unattended, and blowing out candles before bedtime or when leaving the room.

Over the weekend we shipped packages of chocolates and the candles to Elizabeth. They should arrive just in time for Valentine’s Day. Each item is wrapped in paper decorated with big red hearts. My husband will wire the flowers and fruit bouquet. I have no idea what her reaction will be when she unwraps the box of flameless candles. But I believe she will smile when she thinks about the love and care that went into choosing the gift.
