Wintertime is my favourite time of the year !
Candle lights and cosy time with a loved one under a blanket is just so romantic and completely my cop of tea. That is why wintertime is my favourite time of the year!
Me and my husband, the team behind Krista Design love to make candle holders and have made several ones for tealights and regular candles. In Iceland it gets very dark at night in the winter time so we added to our collection a candle holder for outdoor use.
The story behind the first outdoor candle holder is that me and my husband Börkur wanted to give our grieving friends some memorial gift to remember their son by, but they had just lost Orri, their oldest son, at the age of 16 years old. We did not find anything appropriate enough for the young couple so we decided to make our own version for them and even manufacture them.
The candle holder was well received so we decided to donate some of it´s income to a charity for younger people going through depression and suicidal thoughts. They are suitable to be placed on graves of your loved ones in cemetery but can also be placed outside your home, on doorsteps or balcony.
This version, with the flames, is completely timeless and is fitting for outdoor use at your home, summerhouse, in front of restaurants or other.
We added some types to the collection later on, like the white version which is a little smaller and has three different icons on the sides, cross, dove and a heart.
Then we have the smallest version for tea light which comes in a flat pack. It can easily be shipped by mail so it is a kind gesture for the one you love.
Create your own happiness!
