Gifting An Iggy Box Candle Subscription This Christmas

Gifting An Iggy Box Candle Subscription This Christmas

Welcome to our ‘Guide to Gifting an Iggy Box Candle Subscription’ this Christmas…

With the festive season nearly upon us, we thought we would share a step by step guide on how to send an Iggy Box gift subscription to a loved one this Christmas!

Step 1: Choose your box size

We offer two box sizes for you to choose from, ‘The Little One’ and ‘The Bigger One’.

‘The Little One’ includes one full-size scented candle with a minimum burn time of 30 hours.
‘The Bigger One’ includes one full-size candle with a minimum burn time of 45 hours.

Both boxes include a surprise little something extra each month, a box of matches and a leaflet containing all your giftee needs to know about that month’s box.

Step 2: Choose your gift duration

We offer 1, 2, 3, 6 or 12 month gift subscriptions, starting from £14.95. All of our gift subscriptions are paid for upfront and do not auto-renew after the gift period has ended.

Step 3: Select your gift start month

For Christmas gifts, you can choose to have the first candle delivered in December or January.

For December start dates, these boxes will be shipped a little earlier than normal on 11th of December, so should be with you in plenty of time for Christmas.*

For January start dates, these boxes will be shipped as normal on 16th January. We do however understand that you will want something physical to give to your giftee on the big day… so this is where our gift certificate boxes come in! We have explained a little more about them in Step 4 below!

All gift subscriptions include an e-gift card for you to print off and give to your giftee if you need to. This will be linked to your order confirmation email.

*Please note that our Iggy Boxes are sent in the post and they are not wrapped or placed in a cardboard box. They do travel well, but will have a shipping label on the underside and may not arrive in absolute pristine condition!

Step 4: Choose whether to include a Gift Certificate Presentation Box

Our gift certificate presentation boxes are the perfect answer for gifts starting in January… although they do make a lovely addition to gifts all year round!

They are available to add on to any gift subscription for £3.95 and if you choose to purchase one, it will be sent within 2-3 days of you placing the order. It can either be sent to you (to your billing address) or directly to your recipient (your shipping address)… just be mindful that if you ship straight to your giftee, it will be sent to them straight away, so you might want to ask someone to intercept it!

They contain 2 beautiful cards, detailing all your giftee needs to know about what they have been gifted and what to expect from their subscription. They make a beautiful alternative to our e-gift certificate and are perfect to wrap up under the tree! 

Step 5: Write your personalised gift message

Write your loved one a special message and don’t forget to include who the gift is from! For orders including a gift certificate box, your personalised gift message will be included inside the gift certificate box. For orders without a gift certificate box, your personalised gift message will be included inside your giftee’s first candle box.

Step 6: Select your delivery address

At the checkout you are able to input your billing address and a different shipping address, so you can ship the boxes directly to your giftee. However, if you wanted the first box to be sent directly to yourself for you to wrap, then you can do this too… Just input your address as the delivery address at the checkout. Once you have placed the order, then please just send us an email at hello@iggybox.co.uk with your giftee’s address and we will make sure that this is updated for you and that all future boxes are sent directly to them!

Step 7: Sit back, relax and let us do the rest!

At Iggy HQ, we spend lots of time scent and burn testing different candles and each month we partner with one of the UK’s very best artisan candle makers. The scent, vessel colour and candle maker will change month after month, allowing your giftee to enjoy a wonderful experience full of variety and surprises. The candles featured inside in our boxes are made using completely natural and eco-friendly waxes, so your giftee can also enjoy their candle knowing there are no nasties being released into their home.

Take your giftee on the ultimate journey of discovery and give the gift of scent this Christmas…. We hope our ‘Guide to Gifting an Iggy Box Candle Subscription’ has answered all your gifting questions but if you need anything further, then please do get in touch with us… we would love to hear from you and you can reach us on hello@iggybox.co.uk.
