Best Candles For Gifts in 2021

As I mentioned last week, I’ve been SO into my own candle collection lately.
Both burning my favorites and adding new ones.
And, today I’m all about buying candles as gifts.

Top Ten Best Candles For Gifts

Beautiful scented candles make GREAT gifts for the holidays.

So, today I thought I’d round up my top ten favorite candles to give as gifts.

I’m all about little luxuries to enhance our “stay at home” lives.
This year, especially.
We have candles all over our home, in almost every room of the house.
If you’re looking for an easy yet thoughtful to gift to give or send to someone you love – check out all the beautiful scented candles below.

 I don’t just love the way they look, but of course the way a beautiful candle smells.
Not to mention all the cozy vibes candles bring to a space when they’re lit.

So there you have it, my top ten candle picks.
It was hard to narrow it down to just these ten, as I have SO many favorites.
Personally, I love woodsy and musky scents – but I also love citrus and lemon/ grapefruit ones too.
Other candles I’ve obsessed over the years include this Jo Malone travel candle, this soy wax candle which has an incredible burn time and these delightful coconut wax candles.
Diptyque candles with flowers on coffee table.
For an even extra special gift, you can always add some fancy matches, a gold cotton wick trimmer and/or a glass cloche.
Festive holiday candle gift sets are also a great idea, (this one’s a popular favorite) plus, they’re always packaged so beautifully.
I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t love one of these.
Including me! Can never have too many…

    $85 for a candle (Bibliotheque) is definitely a luxury. Thanks for including some budget saving alternatives. That frasier fir candle is calling my name!

    Thymes Fraser Fir – all time best fragrance! When I had my store, we sold it nonstop from November 1 through January every single year. The best – ESPECIALLY if you don’t get a real tree….
