Gift Ideas For The Candle Lover In Your Life

Gift Ideas For The Candle Lover In Your Life
Scented candles make great gifts for Christmas, birthdays, new homes, new babies, you name it. There’s something incredibly luxurious about unwrapping a Diptyque candle set. Scented candles do, after all, take the top spot as the ultimate status symbol with the pretty ambient glow and fragrant-filled flicker taking pride of place upon every mantelpiece. Plus, treating someone to a home fragrance doesn’t feel quite as personal as a perfume gift set.

There are a lot of candle gifts to choose from though, which can make finding the right one tricky. Should you opt for fancy candles? Would you be better with a Christmas candle gift set? What are the best scented candles? Well, we believe the best candles for gifts must incorporate three things; exquisite looking vessels, a blend of oils that offers considerable burn time, and a seductively crafted scent that holds the power to transform your mood. The holy trinity if you will.

With this in mind, we’ve created a concise list of the best gifts for the candle lovers in your life. From tabletop delights to soothing bath-side scents, meet the best candles for gifts…
