Looking for a safe alternative to the soft flicker of candles? I have just what you need, coming up next!

Candles are a great way to add ambient light and mood to a room, but if you have small children -- or you tend to be forgetful -- maybe open flame isn't the best option for you. I have some alternatives.

Check out flameless candles. They're L.E.D., they have a timer and they smell wonderful. All of the draw of a candle -- none of the danger.

Plus, flameless candles have come a long way since the plastic varieties came out. These are all made of natural wax!

Flameless candles are the perfect addition to a holiday display. You don't have to worry about other stuff around them catching on fire.

These are also perfect for a wall sconce or candleier because you don't have to worry about the heat -- or soot stains on the wall for that matter. Flameless candles are nice in a bathroom where you would like the look of a candle but would likely leave it unattended for a while.

Or fill an empty fireplace with flameless candles to add a soft glow to an otherwise black hole!

I told you that you'd love these flameless candles! I'm Mrs. Fixit and it's just that simple!
