In Gratitude

I have never before offered written online feedback, but because of Kathy’s superior customer service and product I felt compelled to write. Of course, the memorial candle was beautiful…the candle’s scent, personalized tag, thoughtful note and careful packaging were all exceptional. But it was Kathy’s sensitivity, speedy communication, flexibility and understanding that sealed the deal. Her dedication to her craft and customers shines through from beginning to end. I find joy in knowing a company understands and celebrates the deep love between some humans and their pets.

Special Memories

I ordered two of these candles for my brother and sister-in-law who lost both their rescue dogs in quick succession. I know this will be a comfort to them and will hopefully bring back all of the love and joy their sweet dogs brought to them. I am looking forward to giving them to them. I was so glad to find these perfect gifts

Thank you!

I just wanted to think Nelli Designs for having the wonderful memorial candles. Loosing a pet is never easy and the only downside of getting to love them. When someone I know has lost a pet, I send them the memorial candle. Unfortunately we lost one of our fur babies a few months ago and a sweet friend (that we had a memorial candle sent to) had a candle sent to us. The candles are so nice and the collars add a special touch with the engraving of the pets name. Thank you so much!!!

Gentle thoughtfulness

Nelli Designs and Kathy are so caring and understanding! Both Kathy and the company know how to add smiles to the tears of losing one’s beloved pet - Not an easy task! I have given a candle a few times to friends and it's always been cherished. A "must" to help console anyone who has heart-ache from losing a furry best friend!~

Had to share the love.

I received one of these memorial candles from a coworker when we had to put down our 15 year old dog in April. We loved the story behind the company, the dog collar around the rim, the personalized dog tag with her name on it, the "rolling the grass" smell, and the candle overall to remember her each night. We appreciated it so much that when our friend lost her dog expectantly this last weekend, we made sure to send her one in hopes of providing her a little comfort. Thank you!

Just wanted to say thank you for providing such a wonderful product and such great customer service. I ordered a candle in honor of my friend's dog Bru passing and I was so impressed when I received the candle and handwritten note, and my friends absolutely love the candle. What a wonderful company you are and I will recommend you to anyone that asks!

Touching and Thoughtful!

I know about you all from a friend who loves your company as I now do too.
We lost our beloved Ivy in April – she was 14 and the love of our lives – (A Vizsla) anyway we received a candle in her honor and it sits proudly where we see it every day. So it was a must - to do this for our friend Jim in honor of his Jack – you guys are the best – and I am so happy to have found you as I think it's an awesome way for us to remember our kindest, best, furry friends ever! humans, you all ROCK! your customer service and care is outstanding!

More than just a company....

Nelli Designs is more than just a company - it's a community! I've ordered several candles and Kathy is just amazing. She's kind, considerate, thoughtful and really makes you feel like more than just a customer. Her mission to give back through her sales is unique and selfless philanthropy at its best! I highly recommend Kathy's work and her products. She puts such amazing detail into everything she does - what she does is so special for pet lovers everywhere!

Thanks Kathy for everything!

Thank you!

I just wanted to send you a huge “THANK YOU.” I was blown away by your thoughtful note and the lovely gift and packaging. The note made me cry all over again, but that was just so sweet of you.

My husband Paul really appreciated it. We already have Rusty’s tag attached and the candle is up on the mantle.

Many, many thanks.

Molly Feeney-Kochevar Once again, I find myself consoling a dear friend about the loss of her best friend… Thanks to these amazing candles I have purchased one to send her way to help her during her sadness. Unlike flowers or plants that eventually die, these candles light-on forever.  It’s one of my favorite things to send to any dog lover, in light of happiness, sadness or just to say Hello. Thank you for these gifts!
Joyce Bonomo Just received Maggie’s Light from a friend for my birthday.   We adopted “Maggie” from Homeward Bound 2 yrs ago.   She is the sweetest yellow lab & is a “little sister” to our other yellow lab, “Kaylee”.  My friend couldn’t resist the name & we absolutely love it!  What a thoughtful, touching gift to give someone grieving for the loss of their best friend.  We too, have been through that difficult time before.   I will make sure to pass Maggie’s Light on when the time is needed.  Thank you for such a wonderful gift!
Laura Sommers A friend of mine lost her companion dog of many years. Of course, the cards and letters poured in. When she received the Nelli Designs candle as a memorial, she placed it on the console at the center of everyone’s kind wishes. She had been thinking it was silly to put all the sympathy cards on display, but somehow the candle made it OK. I’ve sent several to friends. The candles are always exquisitely made and incredibly appreciated.
RatePoint Reviewer After sending a friend a Nelli candle on the loss of her sixteen-year old poodle companion, she called emotionally touched by the thoughtfulness and meaning of such a clever memorial. She will “treasure it forever.”
maria I ordered a Nelli Designs candle for my friend who lost her 15 year old poodle.  She so appreciated the candle.  It’s such a perfect and unique way to pay tribute to our beloved pets!  Thank you Nelli Designs!!
Maria I purchased a Nelli candle for my friend who lost her 15 year old poodle.  Such a unique and lasting tribute!  Thank you Nelli Designs!!   I appreciated the prompt service, seller communication, and delivery.
Nicole, ND I know that every time I look at my candle, I just feel so good about life.  I know my friend will appreciate this because let’s be honest…your candles are AMAZING and they represent such love.
Cheryl, MA I loved the candle when I received it from my friend! It was a very emotional time and it really “hit the spot” when I received the candle. I especially loved the things that came along with it. I think your product is fabulous and as soon as another friend of mine lost her dog, I immediately emailed my friend for your information.
Katherine I saw these candles a while back and had to have one. Complete with a poka-dot collar and an engraved dog tag they are just too cute to pass up. I also really like the fact that they are made with soy wax – environmentally friendly. These candles are great for gifts or for remembering a beloved pet after they’re gone.
Julie I love my candle from Nelli Designs.  It’s such a personal way to memorialize my beloved dog, Raisin. And I was able to personalize it with a red collar, the same as Raisin’s.  I’ve told mutliple friends about this great idea and now they’re ordering candles, too.  Everyone loves them.
Ali Jarvis, These candles are such a great way to honor a dearly departed doggie as a memorial, but they’re also perfect for celebrating the dogs who are still a part of our lives. I especially love that a dollar of each local sale goes to Homeward Bound Dog Rescue.
Sara Commers I purchased one of Nelli Designs memorial candles as a gift for a friend who lost her dog and I find myself buying them for anyone I know who is a dog-lover and wants to celebrate the life or mourn the loss of their furry friends. The candles are a beautiful sentiment and can be custom engraved with any message, and the actual dog tags of a pet can be attached to the collar around the candle, which is very sweet. The quality of the this gift item has found it’s way into prominent places in my friends and family’s homes.
Jessie Marianiello, Stray Dog Arts I fell in love with Nelli Designs candles the second I laid eyes on them. Since then, I’ve grown a serious love affair/addiction to them.  I order in bulk, keeping a healthy stash on hand to give to dog-loving clients and friends on a regular basis.  Whether I want to say thank you to a special client, honor the passing of a four-legged friend, celebrate the adoption of a new one, or simply burn for my own pleasure, I’ve hereby decided that I can’t live without these candles.  They burn clean, bright and beautifully.  Soooo happy to have found such a perfect gift!
