Having a lit candle flickering in a room can bring a peaceful presence to your interactions there.  Beautiful candles can also provide a focus for meditation, or a pleasing scent for stress relief.  (See this research on aromatherapy if you're skeptical about the benefits--I was.)  Candles can shift the mood of a room, and make excellent gifts for those who enjoy a little peace or need some passive stress relief. These also make excellent gifts to have on hand in a gift closet, because they can really be appreciated by just about anyone.
