Everybody needs a good ashtray in their home. I prefer blunt ashes and dutch guts over cigarette butts but to each it's own. The part candle and part ashtray is made out of paraffin wax material, with a wick that burns in the center of the tray. The wax melts and drowns not only the ashes, but also the odor. They come in a bunch of colors, too, but I like this one best.
