About us

Buy the Light is the answer to all of your present and gift buying dilemmas. Based in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, we have over 18 years of experience in selecting the perfect gifts for every occasion - from birthdays and weddings to christenings and Christmas.

Our ethos is simple - to source the highest quality products that you won't find in every high street store and pass them onto you at a reasonable price, with excellent customer service and gift buying expertise added in for free!

Known locally as the "Smelliest Shop in Town", Buy the Light stocks a wide range of home fragrance products including a vast selection of the ever popular Yankee Candle as well as the sophisticated Kringle Candles (made by the son of the Founder of Yankee Candle), Woodwick, Classic and Village Candles.

Buy the Light currently stock over 200 different fragranced products, alongside fun DCUK Ducks, Edge and Frith sculptures, beautiful Jewellery, stunning handbags, stylish glass wear and much, much more. You can view and purchase our gift and candle range here and in-store.

The beauty of our collection of candles is their long lasting fragrance from the moment you first light them, right through to the end of the wick, adding a beautiful fragrance to your home or making them a wonderful gift.

By the way, we test burn all of our candles before we stock them to ensure the best possible products are on our shelves. From the burn quality, to the fragrance, calibre of the wick and even the size of the flame, we like to make sure you're getting the top of the range.

Should you be visiting Bury St Edmunds, you can find our treasure trove of gifts, candles and more in our award winning store at 4 Whiting Street.

The team at Buy the Light are passionate about presents and are here to help you find the right gift no matter what the occasion. Whether you are shopping online or browsing in our store, we are always happy to help. Please feel free to send us an email at sales@buythelight.co.uk or call us on 01284 700288 for help so we can advise you on finding the right candle, gift or treat for yourself!
