NYC Soy Candles Available Now as Holiday Gifts


2020 was a challenging year for everyone, and Covid has had a huge effect on the supply chain throughout the world. With the recent talk about manufacturing and shipping delays, many are anticipating that we will still see shortages of everyday items we use, including holiday gifts this holiday season.

NYC residents and businesses need to start planning their holiday gift list for family, friends, employees, coworkers and clients before they find themselves running around Manhattan, Brooklyn or Queens trying to find merchandise that made wonderful gifts in years past. This also includes ordering online and finding out that an item is unavailable or wondering if your purchase will arrive in time for the holidays.  Great South Bay Candles is located right here on Long Island and we are ready to ease your holiday shopping needs.

The materials that we use to produce our candle products are manufactured in the US.  We have planned ahead to make sure we will have items in stock that will delight your recipients.  We are ready to help you give the gift of light and scent this holiday season.


Soy candles are great gifts because they are aesthetically pleasing, healthier and economical.  Scented candles are great mood boosters.  The scent triggers sensory receptors in the brain that are responsible for making us feel positive.  A scent can also transport you back to a special memory or to somewhere special.  Due to their versatility there is a candle scent for everyone from florals, clean and refreshing, woodsy, fruity or sweet.  They are healthier because they are made from soybeans, which is a vegetable wax.

Great South Bay Candle Company is an artisan soy candle company located in the New York City area.  Our candles come in elegant white glass tumblers and travel tins.  We carry holiday and non seasonal candle wax warmers that can be used with our soy wax melts.


We hand poured all of our candle products in small batches.  We have done extensive research on the different varieties of waxes, wicks and fragrance oils to ensure we are using the best eco friendly materials in all of our candle products.

Our candles are paraffin free, vegan, as well as dye and additive free, and not harmful to the environment.  When you burn a Great South Bay Candle, you know that you are burning a safer, cleaner candle without omitting toxins, pollutants or carcinogens into the air you breathe while enjoying our beautiful fragrances throughout your home. 

Our home fragrances are inspired by coastal living, nature, and personal recollections. We custom blend most of our fragrances to create a unique and different experience for you.  We are constantly taking steps to help the environment. The packaging that we use is made from recycled materials. It’s also biodegradable and/or recyclable to help for a greener planet. 

In addition to our year round candle scents, we specifically have chosen scents that bring warmth and ambiance into your home during the holiday season. Our seasonal holiday fragrances include:

  • Balsam Cranberry
  • Swedish Glogg
  • Wintry Evergreen 
  • Winter Solstice


We ship all over the United States and will gladly forward your holiday order directly to the gift recipient on your behalf.  You may send multiple gifts on one order, but additional shipping charges will apply.  Upon request, we can enclose a generic holiday card with a personalized message from you at no extra cost.  

We will ship your order within 1-2 business days.  If you are unsure what to get someone, we have electronic gift cards that are delivered directly to your email so you may forward it to your gift recipient with your own special message at your convenience.  Our gift cards never expire and have no additional processing fees.
