A little late for Santa Clause this year, but I just saw a possible, if expensive, gift for next year. Saccomatto Chess Candles are large (15-30cm) candles in the shape of chess pieces. They are produced by Seletti Botique, which are based in that well known chess locale, Queenstown, New Zealand. However, at $134 a piece, it might be a little pricey, and even if I did get one as a gift, I'd probably refuse to set fire to them.
But they are nice to look at, so if you are interested, you can find out more here.
