West Virginia Mountaineer Wax Melts Make Great Gifts for Football Fans

Updated on September 20, 2016

Finding the perfect gift for a football fan can seem like an impossible task. Especially if your significant other has a birthday during football season as well. T-shirts and hoodies are not the only gift ideas for football season. Finding a unique gift for the die hard football fan in your life is easier than you may think! Especially if you are shopping for a West Virginia Mountaineer fan. I have come across a unique gift idea sure to please even the pickiest fan!

Think outside the box and you are sure to find a unique gift fit for a football fan that is not the usual fan apparel. My extended family is full of WVU football fans, so finding gifts has been difficult in the past. Always keeping an eye out for something new or different to get them. Though what do you get the football fan that has everything? So I was beyond excited when I found West Virginia themed wax melts by Man Made Candles and Gifts! Something new and different for the WVU fan.

WVU Wax Melts and Cold Throw

When considering a wax melt, tart or candle I always pay attention to the 'cold throw' of the fragrance. Cold throw is the fragrance of the wax melt without being in a wax warmer. The cold throw usually lets me know if I am dealing with a quality product or not. Many wax melts you have to actually put up to your nose in order to smell them.

The cold throw on my WVU wax melts in Blueberry Cobbler and Creme Brulee blend blew my mind. Since this was an item that was ordered, it came in the mail. Once I started across the street I could smell the Blueberry Cobbler and Creme Brulee before I even made it to the mailbox! Once I returned to the house I laid my wax melts on the table while I fixed lunch. Without placing any melts in my wax warmer, the cold throw had three rooms smelling amazing.

When talking about wax products getting a cold throw like this, screams quality. Mainstream melts you find in big box retailers or other stores do not produce a cold throw like these WVU melts. So finding a wax tart, candle or melt that produces such amazing cold throw speaks volumes to the quality of the product, and the process used to create it.

Blueberry Cobbler and Creme Brulee is an amazing blended fragrance. It will fill your home with an aroma much like sitting in a high end bakery filled with tasty treats.

Blueberry Cobbler and Creme Brulee

I have always been a fan of both Blueberry Cobbler, and Creme Brulee as a fragrance. Though this would be my first time melting a blend of the two together. This genius blend creates an amazing fragrance sure to please anyone who loves food related home fragrance! Blueberry Cobbler and Creme Brulee has my home smelling like a fantastic boutique bakery.

I must admit these were so cute, I hated to even break a chunk off to start melting. These WV themed wax creations are handmade by an artisan right here in West Virginia. I was in awe of the talent and patience that no doubt went to creating such an exquisite wax tart by hand. Though the fragrance eventually had me giving in and adding them to my wax warmers.

Due to the style of my wax warmers, I have to trim the wax melts in order to avoid overflowing my warmer.

Long Lasting Fragrance

Being someone who usually keeps wax melts and tarts on hand, I know the good and the bad of many different brands. I know how long they last in my wax warmer too. An average tart that you purchase will only give you fragrance for 6-8 hours. Even those really expensive 'name brand' popular tarts only last about 8 hours in your warmer.

Man Made Candles & Gifts has created an amazing product that lasts longer than any other wax product I have used in the past! Since I was trying a new product I of course was testing it as well. My Blueberry Cobbler and Creme Brulee wax melts blew my mind with how long the fragrance lasted. After 24 hours melting away in my wax warmer, the fragrance was still strong with this wax!

I continued to allow the wax to stay warm and the fragrance still continued to fill my house with a wonderful aroma past the 24 hour mark! Something I have never encountered with a wax melt, or tart in the past! The long lasting fragrant aroma last longer and stronger than anything I have ever used in my wax warmer before! Considering I have been using wax warmer for a very long time, that is saying something!

Jumbo Wax Clamshell

All I can say is, WOW! I have never encountered a wax clamshell this large before! Seriously, it is bigger than my hand! As expected it will cost you more than the $3.00 wax clamshells at the big box stores. But it is worth every single penny! Man Made Candles & Gifts takes clamshells to a whole new level with these jumbo clamshells. They are the largest I have found available for purchase! The fragrance lasts longer than any other products I have tried. Artisan or mainstream store brand, these jumbo clamshells beat them all.

These huge clamshells are a full pound of wax! Let that sink in for a moment, a pound! A standard clamshell that most of us are familiar with, only holds about 2.75 ounces of wax. Ounces versus a pound! The Jumbo clamshells has 10 Jumbo wax melt cubes in it. Trust me when I say there is a huge difference in a standard clamshell and these jumbo clamshells from Man Made Candles & Gifts!

I am a huge fan of these jumbo clamshells! They are easier to store than the small standard clamshells, and you won't lose sight of them. Since these monster clamshells look like a designer boutique item they look fantastic sitting out where everyone can see them. Since the cold throw is so amazing. Leaving them sit in an area that you may not be able to place a wax warmer will allow the aroma to fill that space.
