19 Best Candle Holders To Buy In 2023 - Candlestick Holder

Get ready to elevate your candle game – literally. Candle holders, candlesticks and candelabras are an instant way to add ambience and character to your home, whether as a formal dining table centrepiece or pretty mantelpiece decoration.

So if you need a new home for your favourite colourful candles or want to impress next time you host dinner, look no further than our curated selection of the hottest candle holders to buy right now.

Most candle holders are designed to hold narrow dinner candles or taper candles, although some also fit tealights or chunky pillar candles. Lanterns are great if you might want to place it outside or near a doorway, as they will prevent your candle from blowing out in any breezes.

To secure a dinner candle into a candle holder or candelabra, melt the bottom of the candle slightly and drip some of its hot wax into the holder. Put the candle in and hold it in place for a few seconds until the wax cools. Remember to always put out candles before they have burnt down to two centimetres away from the holder.

If you go for a coloured candle holder, consider picking a contrasting shade of candle for a fun, eclectic effect.

A candelabra is a type of candle holder with multiple arms – think Lumière in Beauty and the Beast – that is traditionally used at the centre of a dining table for formal meals. A candle holder is anything that holds a candle, including candlesticks (which often have sharp points to secure a candle in place), tealight holders and candelabras.

Candle holders come in all shapes and sizes: from classic gold candelabras which hold multiple candles to wooden stands for chunky pillar candles.

When choosing what type of candle holder to go for, consider how you will use it. Candelabras and taller candlesticks will elevate a dinner setting and create a sense of occasion. Their height means they won't get in the way of conversation whilst casting an ambient glow over your guests, or pick glass candlesticks to avoid obstructing anyone's view across the table.

If you want to create a cosy atmosphere in your living room, opt for single candle holders that are easy to move around or a pillar candle holder. Some sculptural candle holders will look good even without candles in as statement pieces on shelves or coffee tables.

When grouping candle holders on a shelf or mantelpiece, look for different heights and aim to position them in odd numbers. You can go for different shapes and sizes, but pick a unified colour palette, material or aesthetic to tie the look together.

From bright, statement candlesticks and classic candelabras to versatile lanterns and pared-back glass holders, we've hand picked our 17 favourite candle holders – there's something for all tastes, budgets and occasions.

You can rely on Graham and Green for colourful, eclectic accessories. Mix and match these fun bubble candle holders for maximum impact.
