Flameless candles aren't very romantic, are they? There's just something alluring about the old-fashioned fire-powered candle. Unfortunately, romanticism isn't going to save your house when the candle catches the drapes on fire.

“One of the biggest benefits of using our flameless candles is plain and simple, they are safe. You don’t have to worry about fires or harm to anyone or anything.” said Mike McDonald, a representative of Frux Home and Yard.

On a final note, it's pretty easy to make your own flameless candle. If you're not into spending money, it's is a pretty good alternative:
