Product Reco: The Best Flameless Candles


Something as simple as a traditional wick-burning candle can be difficult and dangerous for seniors to use.  Luckily there are all types of battery-operated or “flameless” candles on the market.  I really love the Restoration Hardware Wax Flameless Pillar Candles (pictured above).


  • These candles really look and feel like traditional wick-burning candles.  They have a paraffin wax coating and the wick is dark brown to give the illusion of having been lite.  When the candle is on, it gives off a warm glow and flickers like a traditional wick-burning candle.
  • Safe is so many ways.  No need for matches, which means no risk of getting burned or catching fire.
  • No soot or smoke that comes with wick-burning candles.
  • Unscented
  • Comes in 12 sizes



  • Candles require 2 C batteries, which are not included.
  • Place the candle on a protective base to avoid wax marks or oil deposits.  I put mine on small coasters, which you don’t even notice.
  • If you want the ultimate in ease, you can purchase a remote control.  I haven’t tried this but it’s an option.


Price: $19-$45
