My house is filled with them. Chris seems to like them more than me, I reckon, but he'd never admit it! Zippo, the leading lighter brand, have developed a lighter specifically for lighting candles which means no more burning your fingers! It is perfect for setting the scene for a romantic dinner or having a relaxing bath.
Not only is it extremely practical and hardwearing, the sleek and stylish appearance will fit seamlessly into any home. There are three colours to choose from - Champagne, Harvest Brown and Candy Apple Red - so you are sure to find one to suit your mum.
The Zippo Candle Lighter features an advanced soft touch ignition system, adjustable flame dial, a patented child-resistant safety button and it is 6.5 inches from base to top. It also comes with a three-year warranty. For optimum performance, use the Zippo Premium Butane (sold separately).
Usually, I'm very cautious using lighters (flames scare me!) but this really is easy to use. I love that you have the option to change the strength of the flame and the child-resistant safety button is perfect for mums. Although we obviously do be as careful as we can but accidents do happen. It is great for peace of mind, just in case.
The Zippo Candle Lighter retails at £13.75.
