To ensure our Sourcy community starts off on a good step into 2022, we here at Sourcy have been looking out for trends that our community can leverage on to maximize your sales. One noticeable trend is the increase in interest in candles. Candles have been the most searched keyword on our site and the fact that people are spending more time at home under the new normal also leads to the fact that they are spending more to decorate their own spaces. And what's the first thing you think of when you want to change the mood of an environment? Candles.


Let's talk about the trending candle styles and accessories today.

The versatility of candles 

First up, we have novelty candles. These represent candles that do not have the usual shape that an individual would expect. These are great for retailers looking to sell candles that have more personality and do not require a candle holder to look stylish. They can also double up as home decor when not used, killing two birds with one stone which is why it is a customer’s favourite. Interested? Here are some best selling examples.

Second up, we have aesthetic candle holders. Basic looking candles are used by the general public and it is usually not fanciful or eye-catching. To enhance the look of such candles, customers have been looking for candle holders that come in many different styles to decorate their homes and elevate their aesthetics. This allows more flexibility for the customers to decide what kind of vibe they want in their house and change it when they want to. Some of the trending styles we have discovered on our website were ‘vintage’, ‘modern luxury’ and ‘minimalist’. If you’re wondering how it looks, we have placed a few best selling holders of these styles right below. 

  • Last but not least, for businesses who want the greatest flexibility and uniqueness to their products, DIY candles can be considered. Due to the pandemic, many individuals try to plan activities to do at home to stay safe and crafting is one very popular activity that individuals like to partake in. Hence, customers are increasingly searching for DIY candle sets and decorations as making candles are good activities that can be done at home to bond with friends, families or lovers. It is also good as a therapeutic activity for individuals who are experiencing stress. Not only is a usable product created, it is a unique product that cannot be found elsewhere which provides a greater sense of individuality which every consumer wants. It is also a popular gift item by consumers as it shows more sincerity to the receiving person.

  • Alternatively, businesses can also consider making their own candles with these sets and selling as their candles would be unique and make their business look niche and not mass produced. 

  • Furthermore, when individuals buy a handcrafted product, they are usually willing to pay slightly more, allowing you to price your products higher to maximise profits. With so much utility, small businesses should consider stocking up on DIY sets and purchasing materials separately such as dried pressed flowers, candle holders and scents to mix and match a candle. For those interested, we have also curated a collection filled with trending decoration and a DIY set for you to mix and match.
