Amazon's Black Friday sale has officially kicked off, and in case you're looking for the perfect gift, we're pretty sure we've found it. Well, actually, the internet might have found it. According to this year's Google Holiday 100 list, the Cozyberry Candle Warmer was the top-trending interior decor item over the last 12 months — and it's easy to see why. Not only will it help extend the life of your candles, it'll let you enjoy their gorgeous aromas without the use of flames. Really! It's safe to use, beautiful to look at — oh, and it also happens to be marked down by over 40% for Prime members.
Be sure to check out our roundup of the best Amazon Black Friday deals and our guide to all things Black Friday for pro shopping insights to keep in mind while shopping all the sales this week has to offer. Happy saving!
Why is it a good Black Friday deal?
You can't put a price on safety — that being said, getting a discount is always nice! The only other time we've seen this candle warmer discounted by this much was during Prime Day, and it's never dipped to less than that. Plus, it'll actually save you money in the long run, since it gently melts candles, making them last longer than lighting them. Considering it's such a popular item right now, our advice would be to snag one (or two) while you can still save — and before it goes out of stock. While Prime members will get the lowest price, non-members can still snag it on sale for $46.
Why do I need this?
When you light a candle, you'll often notice that the center starts to sink in before the edges — which makes sense, given that it's closest to the hot wick. But the Cozyberry Candle Warmer, which acts like a lamp of sorts, uses top-down technology to melt candles more evenly, and since there's no flame involved, you'll be smelling the pure scent without any smoky overtones (or unsightly ashes!).
To use, simply place your candle under its halogen bulb, turn it on and within minutes you should start to smell the fragrance filling the air. Not only will the Cozyberry help minimize the risk of fires, it'll also add a lovely glow to any room it's placed in. Its built-in dimmer switch allows you to control the brightness to your liking — should you only want a subtle scent, you can keep it low. It can fit candles of practically any size, so go dust off your collection!
What reviewers say
"I bought one of these for my candles for the safety factor," wrote one satisfied shopper. "Man, I had NO idea how much money this beauty would actually save me. My candles burn longer. ... All the wax burns off, so there is no goop all over the insides or an inch of wasted wax after the wick burns out. ... Loved it so much, I eagerly bought another for the downstairs. They literally fill the entire floor with scent and I am happy. ... Guess what everyone is getting for Christmas!"
"I bought this because I have cats and am afraid to light candles when they are around," shared another impressed buyer. "It works very well and allows me to adjust the amount of fragrance in the air, unlike a regular lit candle, and doubles as a lamp for my room."
"I do think that my candles have lasted longer than they would when burning," wrote a final fan. "Eventually I’ll need to pour off the top of the melted wax once the scent oils are gone from that layer. The lamp is nice, but I did notice it sort of 'favors' one side of the candle, so I do have to periodically rotate the candle to make an even pool. The other thing is that I only use it on the highest setting, so it makes the lamp’s surrounding area a little warm. As such, you probably shouldn’t use it on a surface that might be heat-sensitive or put things around it that could be affected by the light or heat." Sound advice!
And to go with, here's a popular Yankee Candle, also on sale:
"I must say, it's one of the nicest scents I've bought," wrote a cozy customer. "It makes my home smell so welcoming and warm. And with the weather getting cooler, the scent makes me feel comfortable and happy. I highly recommend to anyone looking for a scent that makes you happy to be home."
If you have Amazon Prime, you’ll get free shipping, of course. Not yet a member? No problem. You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
