Artwax offers many detailed fruit and vegetable candles but their scented chocolate dipped candles are my favorite. They also have great apple, pear, eggplant and pepper candles. The apple candles look very realistic and would make a great gift for a teacher. Artwax also has handmade bakery candles, floating flowers, wedding favors and candle holders.

- August 12-15 at New York International Gift Fair
