You may be able to donate slightly used candles to Goodwill. You could also check eBay requests or online requests for used candles because some people like to use them to make new candles.
You could also try melting the candles down yourself and creating new ones for gifts. People’s comments on this blog suggest filling mason jars with melted wax from old candles. These can be great Christmas gifts.
If you are inclined to be craftsy, you can make new candles from your old candle leavings by inserting a new wick and melting the leftover wax together in a mold. Here is a site with some directions: http://tlc.howstuffworks.com/family/recycle-candles-into-new1.htm
