Colossal Christmas Countdown:

3 Days Until Christmas!


One of the best things about the holidays is the abundance of lights everywhere!  From the Christmas trees, to our front yards, to the myriad of candles all around, the holidays are definitely filled with lights.  Of course, if you have any candles at all, you know how essential a quality candle lighter is.

Many, many years ago, I used to use a regular lighter to light my candles.  But, after a ton of burned fingertips, cuss words and even an artificial nail that lit up like a Roman candle, I decided to find a better way.  Zippo has been making top quality lighters for 75 years now and I was thrilled to learn that they also make candle lighters too.  Keep reading to learn more about them!

I reviewed the Snowflake Candle Lighter from Zippo, which retails for $19.95.

I was so happy to learn that Zippo makes candle lighters for, to me, Zippo is the epitome of quality when it comes to lighters.  There are seven unique designs, perfect for anyone's decor, and they even have a jazzy snowflake design, just right for the holidays!  Of course, this is the one I had to try since I'm lighting candles left and right around Christmas time.

Zippo Candle Lighter

Zippo candle lighters are definitely a cut above the rest, for they have several unique features such as:

  • Sleek ergonomic design - I love how the Zippo candle lighter fits nicely in your hand and looks stunning with its silver barrel, sliding lighter button, top and base.
  • Patented child safety button - The Zippo candle lighter is easy to light for an adult, but definitely next to impossible for a child.  There is a black button on the back of the lighter which must be pushed at the same time the front silver slide button is engaged for this lighter to work.  You also must have a little hand strength in order to slide the silver button.  These two features combined together make the Zippo candle lighter childproof.
  • Fuel-Level Indicator - I love how the Zippo candle lighter has a small, discreet, see-through window on its side which shows how much fuel you have left.  Now, there's no more guessing as to when your lighter needs a refill!
  • Adjustable Flame Dial - The black dial at the base of the candle lighter controls how high the flame goes.  Of course, I had to turn it all the way up, just to see how high it would get...anyone ever see the part in the movie Grease where Kenickie lights his cigarette with the Zippo lighter and the flame is about 6 inches high?  Well, now you get the idea of what the highest setting on this candle lighter looks like!  :)
  • ZIPPO LIFETIME GUARANTEE! - Any company that will back their products with a lifetime guarantee is a company that only makes the best.

Of course, Zippo candle lighters also come in a very pretty decorative box, which is just perfect for giving!  The Zippo candle lighter would make a terrific stocking stuffer, housewarming gift or even hostess gift for that holiday party you're attending.
