Though you can by a pack of a gazillion tea lights at Ikea for like $3, votive candles come with their fair share of problems. Sure, they're cheap, but they have to be replaced constantly, creating waste, and of course there's that whole fire-hazard thing to consider.
Ever since I first stumbled upon the fabulous SunJar ($55), I've been intrigued by these LED candles showing up everywhere. The windproof lights flicker like real candles, so concealed behind glass, they create an effect similar to flame without the hassles. Some of them can even be "blown out." And because LED bulbs last forever, they're actually quite energy efficient. Check out the LED candles I've found by clicking on the photos below and let me know what you think.
