I don’t quite know if this post is a “wishlist” for myself, or a Christmas gift guide to you guys, but I’ve picked out eight festive candles or scents that I’d like my house to smell like over the holiday season! Firstly, can we take a second and talk about their AMAZING advent calender.
I’ve never liked the chocolate ones, even as a child, and I’m also a bit over beauty ones (although I won’t hold back if I spot one that I realy love!) so when I saw this Yankee calendar, I thought it was the best thing ever! A new candle everyday until Christmas… er, yes please! It cost £21.99 and you get 23 tea lights in an assortment of scents, and then I assume you get a sampler votive candle behind the door of Christmas Eve. I am going to place an order this weekend!
The banana nut bread one reminds me of my mum’s kitchen when she bakes. I recommend these candles, which come in different sizes from tea light to large jars. The large jars are quite pricy but they last ages and ages! If you’ve never tried them before, I’d recommend going for something fruity because you can’t go wrong with a fresh and fruity scent. Some of the sweeter ones like the buttercream or vanilla cupcake one can induce a headache!
