Candles, unlike candlesticks, illuminate darkness and cannot be forensically linked to Colonel Mustard. Create your own guiding light with today's Groupon: for $24, you get a candle-, soap-, and lotion-making package at Wix in Los Gatos (a $50 value). The package includes a holiday gift bag and the materials needed to make one medium-size candle, two soaps, and one 9-ounce bottle of lotion.
Wix furnishes budding craftsmen with the tools to engineer custom candles and soaps on hardwood picnic-style tables in a spacious craft studio. After a brief instructional rundown, guests choose from 32 scents, such as bubblegum, peppermint, and molten happiness, to infuse one 9-ounce bottle of hypoallergenic lotion, one candle creation, and two soaps. Candle-makers and soap-molders choose base wax or soap color and then embed colorful dry pieces of wax or soap into molds, with shapes such as hearts, stars, and moons available. A staff member then pours in a melted, scented mixture that holds the final product together more beautifully and securely than handcuffs decorated with poetry. Candles, lotion, and soaps are ready for pickup within two days, beautifully wrapped in a holiday gift bag.
