The COVID-19 shutdown revealed how important it is to make your house a home, since you eat, sleep, play and maybe even work there. So give the newlyweds in your life (or your bridal party) the gift of comfort, warmth and soothing scents with Wax Buffalo’s small-batch, handpoured premium soy candles. What began as a single hand-crafted cinnamon candle for a beloved grandmother has grown into a thriving business (woman-owned!) with a flagship store in downtown Lincoln and offerings at 60 boutiques across the country. The “Mr.” and “Mrs.” candles from their new bridal collection make a great choice for the bride and groom; the set includes candleholders that double as drinking glasses after the flame (and wax) have flickered out. You can also book the Candle Lab for a bachelorette party to remember: Rent the space, deck it out to reflect your personality, invite seven of your besties and bring snacks and drinks to keep the party going. If you want to invite more than seven of your pals, your guests can refresh themselves next door at a local tavern while they wait their turn to create their favorite scented wax creation.
