City Bonfires: The Perfect Gift for Anyone Anytime

This article is written in partnership with City Bonfires. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

Have you heard of City Bonfires? It is a locally made, personal, portable fire pit. They have been featured on the Today Show, Good Morning America, People Magazine, and many more places. And rightly so! The pandemic has hit us all in different ways and City Bonfires was created by two local dads in Maryland whose jobs were affected. This fun item gets us all outside to enjoy time together with family and friends.

The City Bonfires Experience

City Bonfires is a mini, portable handmade bonfire made right here in Maryland. It is in a metal tin with four thick wicks and non-toxic, soy wax. Of course, this is for adult use only and always supervise your children closely while using the bonfire. My three older children and I made s’mores with City Bonfires and had the best time right in our own backyard.

First, I made a tray of goodies with marshmallows, chocolate pieces, graham crackers, and skewers. Then, we sat in our backyard and I placed City Bonfires on a rock and lit the four wicks with a match and my three older children and I made delicious s’mores. Each one held a skewer for roasting their marshmallow and it was a safe, stress-free, fun time with our kids. When it was time to go inside, I quickly and carefully put the lid on the bonfire and the fire went out. I am always looking for ways to bond with our kids and this was perfect.

The Perfect Gift for Anyone Anytime

What I love about City Bonfires is that it isn’t another “thing” — it’s an experience. When I told my kids about this, we were all excited about this fun activity. This truly is the perfect gift for your family or someone you know (hello teachers, healthcare workers, and everyone else in the world!).

City Bonfires are made with a compact, recyclable tin which is filled with non-toxic soy wax and are perfect for front porch sitting, backyard fun, hiking, camping, tailgating, roasting marshmallows for s’mores and more! I love how safe it is to use and no wood, lighter fluid, or clean-up is required. Of course, it is in tin, so do not touch it while it is burning or right after the fire is put out to prevent burns. This compact, reusable bonfire will burn for 3 to 5 hours. It can be used outdoors anywhere with a large backyard or no yard at all.

This fun family-friendly, diverse item should be on your holiday, birthday, or gift list for everyone in your life (including your own family!). The price, experience, convenience, and sheer fun of using a City Bonfires is worth it’s weight in gold. Also, we love supporting local small businesses that are started right in our own backyard during a global pandemic.
