The Most Wonderful Time of the Year is almost here, and we’re inviting YOU to help us spread a little Holiday Cheer with our Christmas Create-a-Candle Contest!
Start by selecting one of our three seasonal scents and corresponding colored ribbons (click here to see your options), then make it your own by giving your creation a unique, fun and festive name!
Once you’ve put the finishing touches on your Christmas creation, fill out the entry form to submit your idea! All entries must be received by November 6th.
Finalists will be posted on our Instagram page. The candle name with the most likes (or “votes”) will win, so rally support from customers in your community and encourage them to visit our page to vote for your store!
Our winner doesn’t just get bragging rights — we’ll also stock your shelves with your winning creation! One lucky store will receive 6 OGs (11oz jars) and 12 sidekicks (3oz votives) personalized with their winning candle name!
Q: Who can enter?
A: Active Neighborhood retail partners.
Q: Can I enter a candle I currently stock?
A: Sure! As long as it meets the contest criteria, feel free to flaunt what you’ve got!
Q: Do I have to stock the candle I want to enter?
A: Nope! (So get creative and dream beyond what’s on your shelves!)
Q: Do you have some examples I can look at?
A: Sure! Our blog is filled with festive candle name ideas that will help get you in a Merry State of Mind. Feel free to use our suggestions to kickstart your brainstorming session, but remember that your entry must be unique and original! (So no re-using names that we’ve featured on our blog or Instagram).
Q: Can I submit more than one candle name?
A: One entry per store, please!
Q: Can I choose any fragrance?
A: No — your creation must feature one of our three seasonal scents.
Q: What are my ribbon options?
A: Each seasonal scent comes pre-paired with three colored ribbon options. You can view the options that correspond with each scent here. No substitutions. Please specify your preferred ribbon option when submitting your creation. If no preference is provided, we will default to solid.
Q: What’s the bottom line?
A: The ‘bottom line’ is text printed directly underneath your candle name on a label (here’s a visual!) You have three options: City, ST (ex: New Orleans, LA), State Only (ex: Louisiana) or No Bottom Line. Please specify your preferred bottom line when submitting your creation. If no preference is provided, we will default to City, ST.
Q: I need help! Who can I contact?
A: Shoot us an email with any other contest related inquiries! (Or just to say hi!)
