Set the mood with Illume’s 3-Wick Mercury Candle.

Birchbox Breakdown

Ever since we found these stylish matchbooks, we’ve been inspired to make candle-lighting a nightly ritual. The sleek set comes puzzle-packed with 12 individual boxes of matches, each with an abstract pattern. Pick your favorite design (if you can) and give the rest away as party favors, or gift it to your next dinner party hostess—odds are you’ll have the pleasure of seeing your gift put to use right away.

How it Works

Each box of sturdy wooden matches has its own striking strip. Bust out the matches whenever you need to light a candle—say, at your next get together or right before you get into the bath.

How to Use

You don’t want to hide these matches inside a drawer—place them next to your favorite candleholders for a touch of vibrant color.

Very nice
Purchased

Since I was giving candles as gifts I bought these as a nice touch and they were perfect. I bought two sets and there wasn't any variation. What you see is what you get. Pleased!

So cute!
Purchased

I gave these as gifts with little votive candles. They were a hit! The bright colors and patters are so cute!

Cool designs
Purchased

Bought these as a filler for free shipping. Was happy with the choice. Placed them in a glass bowl in a common bathroom in my home. I get compliments on them from Guests and have gifted them to friends with different candles.

Chic matchbooks
Purchased

I wanted some matchbook covers that were pretty enough to leave out on my coffee table, and these are them! Great, unique patterns on each and matches work well.

Pretty

These matches make great little extras to drop into gift bags or as party favors. I can't say there's anything besides the novelty appearance that makes them stand out from regular old matches. But as someone who's been collecting random decorated matchbooks for awhile, I appreciated these. The set comes with narrow matchboxes, wide matchboxes, and matchbooks. I gifted these to a few coworkers, one of which I know is a smoker who usually only smokes in her car, so I gave her a matchbook for portability, while I gave my other friend a matchbox for use around her home.

a little something extra
Purchased

I purchased these to include with candles I give as gifts. It adds just a little something extra to top off the gift. Fun patterns. My only complaint is that while most of the matches come in boxes (my preference) there are a couple of matchbooks.

Cute set of matches
Purchased

I love candles and I have them all over my house. I'm constantly looking through drawers to find a lighter or a book of matches. I thought these would be perfect to set next to the candles and they are. The designs are lovely and they're small enough to not draw attention away from the candles. I would warn buyers though that the boxes are small. A few of them were very small. Also, four of the matches were matchbooks not boxes. Overall, I am very happy with purchase.

Boho Chic!
Purchased

I never thought I would be so in LOVE with a beautiful set of matches! These are so gorgeous! I love anything with a bohemian vibe and have lot of candles. I also decided to give some Anthropologie candles as gifts this year and what a special treat to give a gorgeous matchbook along with it! I know these will get many compliments and best of all I can keep some for myself!
