Guys Love Candles, Too...And, They'll Love These Coffee-Shop Inspired Ones from Gerrard’s Coffee Shop Candles + Recycle the Coffee Mug and Use Over and Over Again with Your Morning Coffee!

If you were to ask men about candles, most would say they love candles -- just not all the floral or feminine perfume scented ones.  My husband is a fan of candles, especially ones that have "man smell" as he calls it, which just means a cologne scent, woodsy our outdoorsy scent, or even ones that smell liked baked goods.  So, when I contacted a couple weeks ago and asked to feature Gerrard's Coffee Shop Candles as part of my Father' Day Gift Guide, I jumped at the opportunity of including, after checking out their online store over at Amazon.  

 $20 each – Available in 6 delicious scents to make any dad happy!

"Everyone loves candles and everyone loves coffee! That’s why I created Gerrard’s Coffee Shop Candles - inspired by favorite pastime- spending lazy summer afternoons at my local indie coffee shop with my dog, Dada. Each bespoke fragrance in this giftable candle collection will remind you of one of your favorite cafĂ© treats and after burning, simply recycle your coffee mug and use over and over again. Ships in a beautiful burlap coffee bean bag-inspired gift box. All hand poured in small batches by American workers."

What caught my eye about these handcrafted, long burning soy candles, which are also made in small batches right here in the USA,  is that they come in 6 delicious coffee shop scents men (and women) will love.

Scents include:

  • Hazelnut Drip Coffee
  • Hot Cocoa Fudge
  • Loose Leaf Herbal Tea
  • Organic Chamomile Tea
  • Spiced Chai Tea Latte
  • Vanilla Bean Cappuccino

The candles are poured into an actual coffee mug, which makes this a 2-in-one gift, as once the candle has burned down, you can recycle and reuse the mug over and over again. :-)   These coffee shop candles also have a real wood wick, and are packaged in a beautiful burlap-inspired gift box.  

All this for only $20 a candle...a steal if you ask me! :-)

After reaching out to Gerrard's Coffee Shop Candles, I was sent their chai latte tea and vanilla bean cappuccino candles for review.  I really liked the box that the candles came in. 

You really didn't need a gift bag when gifting these candles, as they look pretty enough with the box.  If you wanted to, you could add a small bow to the top, but it isn't really necessary.

Once I took the candles out to smell, I couldn't get over how wonderful they smelled.  These candles made you feel that you were in a local cafe or coffee shop, sipping on a freshly brewed cup of coffee or specialty drink.  I have bought and burned coffee-scented candles in the past, but they never smelled like these soy candles.  Also, I found after burning the Gerrard's Coffee Shop Candles for a half hour, that not did it fill my house with the scent of a cup of vanilla bean cappuccino, but it also burned clean, and didn't have black smoke coming from the candle, like some other candles I have burned in the past.

When my husband came home from work that night, and my girls came in from playing outside, they all noticed the candle scent, and were quick to ask if I was baking, or what was that delicious scent they were smelling.  My husband thought I was making vanilla bean cappuccino and was ready to enjoy a cup after a long day at work.  But, I showed them the candle on the counter burning, and they were all amazed at the scent was coming from this candle, burning in a coffee mug.  Even though my husband was disappointed that I didn't have a fresh vanilla bean cappuccino waiting for him, he was happy that I finally found scented candles that smelled like a real vanilla bean cappuccino and chai latte tea.  And, when I told him the candles were only $20 each, he couldn't believe it.  He thought that they would have cost more, for the quality of the candle.

I could go on and on about how great these candles from Gerrard's Coffee Shop Candles are, but instead, why don't you pick up a candle to burn and try out for yourself? Once you experience these coffee mug soy candles for yourself, you will see why we are loving them, and can't wait to get more.  And, with Father's Day fast approaching (this upcoming Sunday), why not order one or more of these candles (6 scents available in total) and have them shipped right to Dad to enjoy, as a candle and then as a mug to drink from.

Head on over to to place your Gerrard's Coffee Shop Candles order today.
