Lighting a bunch of candles around your house may seem like a good idea to ~set the mood~ or make your space feel cozier. However, there are some obvious downsides. For one, if they’re scented with different aromas, that’s a lot of smells. And two, you need to remember to blow each one out before you fall asleep.

If you’re someone who is constantly checking to make sure you put out the candle, unplugged your curling iron and turned off the oven (even when you already did), flameless candles are a great alternative. They give you the same ambiance via their subtle, glowy lighting. However, if you forget to turn them off, there’s a pretty low risk of anything bad happening.

These battery-operated Eywamage Glass Flameless Candles on Amazon come in a set of three for under $35. Plus, they have a timer and come with a remote if you don’t want to get off the sofa or out of bed to turn them on and off.

One of the perks of lighting a real candle, however, is the pretty flickering effect. Nonetheless, these flameless candles have a flickering “flame,” too.

Over 4,000 Amazon shoppers give the Eywamage Glass Flameless Candles five out of five stars.

“These candles exceeded expectation,” wrote one Amazon reviewer. “I really don’t like fake candles. They always look really cheap, but these look beautiful. The flames flicker, and I love the timer option. I have mine set to turn on every day.”

Each of these flameless candles comes in a glass holder, and the holders come in four colors: Gray, gold, green and red. The gray and the gold are especially great neutral options for everyday use.

If you still want a fresh scent, you can turn these on and light one real candle as well. But there are just so many reasons why flameless candles are a great idea, especially if you have kids or pets or are just a tad forgetful.
