Customized Candles!

Melanie was so great to work with. Customization was so easy! Thank you!

Favorite Scent

Bought one a while back and had to replace it. Bought nine, so I would always have them, for the Man Cave!

This & That

The smell of this candle has a lot of different scents but is not over powering. I love it!

Beautiful scent

It's fruity and flowery in a more subtle way, with the vanilla making it super cozy for cold days. Definitely one of my favorites!

Another monthly subscription box?

Nope.  We like to think of it as more of an experience.  Remember the joy of opening a present as a kid?  We want to recreate that feeling for you, complete with handcrafted goodies & monthly motivation to help give you the best month possible.   

So what's in it?

  • 1 handcrafted soy candle
  • 1 box of custom Kalamazoo Candle matches
  • 1 bonus gift from a local maker
  • Lots of love & creative vibes

How much?

$29, which comes with our 10oz Jar 

(Psst... we'll ship it to you for FREE -- every time.  No shipping costs, no hidden fees, no malarkey.)

Any other perks?

We're glad you asked.  As a subscriber, you're upgraded to VIP status, so you can enjoy things like first dibs at brand-spanking-new fragrances, or  10% off all purchases (excluding custom-label candles) on our website or in our shop for the lifetime of your subscription! 

Fine print?

There's some, but it's nothing gimmick-y (we promise).  

**When am I charged?  

You'll be charged automatically on the 1st of each month.

**When will my Crate ship?

Each Crate will ship by the 10th of the month.

**Can I pause my subscription?

If you decide you need a break, that's ok.  (Hey, everyone needs some space.)  You can pause your subscription at any time and pick back up when you're ready.  We'll be right here waiting for you.

**Do I need to sign up by a certain date?

The deadline to sign up for each month's Crate is the 1st of the month.  ( Note: If you subscribe on the 2nd, your first Crate will not ship until the following month. You will be charged immediately for your first Crate.)  

**What if I want to send it as a gift?

We think that's a brilliant idea.  We'll make it easy, too!  Opt for the  3-month Gift Subscription, and we'll take care of the rest.  We'll even include a handwritten notecard in their first Crate to make it extra-special (and to let your recipient know who to thank).

The illuminate crate is literally the best thing I have purchased for myself. Each month, I eagerly wait for my box to arrive and I have never been disappointed. Not only are the candles perfectly picked with the season and theme of the box, the extras are such a treat! I am always delighted to see a different extra in each box. Beauty products, food - I have loved every one. I recommend this crate to every one of my friends and I won't unsubscribe anytime soon. Thank you Kalamazoo Candle Company for bringing light into my life!

I look forward to receiving my Crate every month. The contents of this package never fail to amaze me. Every month you receive a new, unique scent of candle with superior quality. The Crate candles are just as amazing as the single candles you can buy from the company. They have a long lasting scent that burn cleanly and evenly. I will never burn another candle in my house. I also admire how the Kalamazoo candle company supports local businesses by including a trial of their products in the box. I would recommend this Crate to anyone who is as addicted to these candles as I am, or simply anyone who loves candles. This monthly illumination Crate never lets me down!

I am excited to receive these every month. Each candle has been a great scent. Vanilla Latte is one of my new favorites. I love giving Kalamazoo Candles as gifts but it is difficult to give any away unless I buy several in the same scent so I can keep one too.

Vanilla Latte is a winner.

The scent of this candle would appeal to anyone. Kalamazoo Candle company never disappoints.
