A lot people got candles from me for Christmas this year. Along with every candle I included one of these cute matchboxes. These matches are extra long so your fingers don’t burn when you are lighting your candle. Besides being functional the boxes are so cute! I got mine from Anthropologie but thanks to Apartment Therapy SF I found a direct source. Here they are for half the price at Anthropologie. I like having these sitting around rather than a regular matchbox, so much prettier.

    What a beautiful gift, especially paired with a candle. I’m definitely stealing this idea.

    you don’t ever realize how handy the longer match is until you have time to saunter around the room lighting at least 3 candles without rushing or burning your finger tips off.

    i use mine all the time. love them. the perfect length.

    Wow. I feel so cool. I had these matches before Jordan posted about them! I got my bumble bee box at Paper Source. They’re fantastic.

    the best part about long matches is the very satisfying lighting sound they make. sounds like a real fire starting. i love it.
