The Yankee Candle Company just lit your creative fire with their new personalized photo candle program.

Whether you choose a family photo to delight mom, a college shot to make your MoH giggle, or an engagement day moment to make your to-be smile, this new online tool from the world’s largest scented candle company lets you personalize your gift.

It’s one-two-three easy—select the fragrance and size, upload a personal photo (you’re able to crop and filter it, then view it in real-time), and add a unique two-line message.

The wedding applications for these new candle options are limitless, as you choose from a variety of styles and sizes. The small votives make great wedding favors when paired with an assortment of labels and embellishments, such as tulle, ribbon, and flowers. Or fill your bridal party gift bags with friendship photos and heartfelt messages on large tumblers and jar candles. Lest we forget, you could use a mini-me photo of you and your mom or as daddy’s little girl for a special family candle, not to mention the candles could make a great one-year anniversary present.

Fragrances come in a range of sweet-scented options, such as Vanilla Cupcake, Balsam & Cedar, Buttercream, Clean Cotton, and Lilac Blossoms, to name a few. We even peeped the scent Wedding Day on the list. And if you’re hosting a fall or holiday wedding, consider one of the seasonal scents, such as Spiced Pumpkin, Candy Cane Lane, Red Apple Wreath, and Luscious Plum.

You’ll receive your candles in seven to 10 days, and the lucky gift recipient will have 110 to 150 hours of burn time for their photo candle.

Personalized Yankee Candles range in price from $4.50 to $33, based on size.
