We found these battery timer snowball candles, but we have a LIMITED supply! They are a nice size of 5.5 inches round (reminds you of the size of a softball) and have a wonderful glow even during the day hours. They will make a perfect gift!
For use the timer setting, just turn it on at whatever time you would like it to come on: for example, 5 pm. At 5 pm every nite, it will come on by itself, and then go off at 11pm, and do the same thing the next day. (instructions are included)
They will take two AA batteries. Depending on the brand/quality of your batteries, they should come on by themselves for about 6-8 weeks.
