I always misplace my lighters. How about a candle that lights itself. Not the candle per se but a glass holder/jar with an elegant built in lighter in which you could just plop candles, hit a button and they light themselves. No matches/lighter nec.

Glass holder/jar: check.

||"self-lighting" camping stoves are Baked. This wouldn't be too hard to do.
||What about those joke candles that you put on birthday cakes that light themselves again after someone has blown them out?
||Those only retain heat; they don't supply it
||why does everyone just want to //hit a button//? Using a lighter is sort of just *hitting a little button* anyway...[see link for lighter leash]
||Have a look at the linked fire piston. I'll have to make one of these. I wonder how hot they could go using different designs and materials.
