Annabel James’ range of luxury gifts includes a honey lily candle by beefayre – ideal for helping busy bees unwind after the New Year festivities. Housed in recycled glass which can be reused, the hand-poured candle, which provides a honeyed floral aroma, is made from 100% natural plant wax and burns for up to 25 hours. As the wax contains no nasties and is also full of essentials oils, it can even double up as massage candle.
