You’ve tried everything else, you’ve begged, bargained and pleaded with the gods of good data, so here’s a candle to light when you just need one good data set. What harm could it do? This candle is 100% as effective as prayer and guaranteed to work! …and if it doesn’t, rinse with boiling water, fill with whiskey and toast to a good try.

Gift for daughter-in-law

She was thrilled with the whimsical candle as she is collecting data for her doctorate. Just a sweet add-on to her recent birthday gift of impersonal $$. So fun!!

The best gift I have given in years

My scientist dad is very hard to get gifts for. When I saw the Useful Data candle I knew it would be a hit. He loves it!
