An ideal gift should be something the person will love to get. But what to present to a bee lover? I’ve faced this challenge before Christmas and had to do some research. I wanted to surprise my friend with the gift that would be tied to his big passion, and I wanted it to be special. So, I visited The Hive Market in Salt Lake City ( 602 E 500 S Suite #D109, Salt Lake City, UT 84102) and found some precious gems I would love to present to my friends. Most of the bee stuff I discovered there can be ordered online, so I will happily share my findings with you.
Pure Beeswax Candles
Beeswax candles from The Wooden Moth are unique. Not only do they use natural beeswax to make the candles but also incorporate pressed locally grown flowers to create unique design.
