Christmas Gift Guide Candles

 I really love candles in the winter and have recently been burning them more than ever as they really add a little warmth to the room. However they can be very pricey especially as I am not too keen on the cheaper ones which often let off harmful chemicals. Therefore i think candles make great luxurious gifts and are a really indulgent treats.
Here are a few of my favourites…. 

 Diptyque Holiday Candles £25 & £45*
The world and his wife talks about Diptyque candles but I had never actually tried any until recently. They have released the most beautiful Christmas collection which start at a reasonable £25 for a mini one! Simply buying a Diptyque candle is a fabulous experience take yourself down to one of their stores or counters and take a minute to explore their scents before picking out that perfect for one for a friend or family member. They even have the most impressive large candles which are expensive but absolutely amazing!

 Neom; Home Candles £39.50 and Travel gift set £55*
An old favourite of mine has to be Neom and I think their large candles make a really nice present if you know what someones favourite scent is but the Neom Gift set which comes with four Travel candles is my favourite candle gift set of all! I like that their are four different scents and the size of each one is perfect too! The only problem is it is one of those presents I would never want to giveaway! I can’t wait to spend the next few weeks burning through these babies!

 Sanctuary £12.50
I have spoken about this candle before as I think £12.50 is a great price as I find them to be of high quality. If you are not into overly scented candles than this one is a great one! There is even a perfect little gift set of three for just £10! Make sure you burn it for a while for the first time as mine didn’t end up burning as evenly as I had hoped.

 Timothy Dunn £45*
This Arabian Fig Candle is by far the most luxurious one and is a little pricey at £45 but you can really see why! It has a perfect festive scent which isn’t over powering, is very elegant and beautiful! This would make a stunning present for an gender as the dark plum colour makes it a simply very classic candle but the other candles seem to be equally as beautiful!

The Craft Lab £18.90*
However if you want something more affordable, handmade and more original why not try this candle from The Craft Lab, it is even suitable for vegans! I have the Classic Christmas one but there are a few you can chose from. It’s main notes are orange, cinnamon & anis and looks rather luxurious with Swarovski Crystals surrounding the glass jar. They also burn for 40 hours so under £19 seems like a fabulous price! Also check out the Facebook page here  (This is a new addition and that’s why it isn’t featured in the first image)

    Argh I love this post! I used to make my own soy candles and wax tarts and absolutely loved it! Real soy cost me a fortune though so I do appreciate a good candle, as long as its not riddled with oil, bleugh. Crappy supermarket ones can do one!

    I'd love to try Neom, and urban apothecary – some of those looks yummy! but I was pleasantly surprised with the luxury £9 ones that Next have atm!

    I have a travel set of NEOM candles from the Christmas collection as well as the Christmas Wish candle. Never smelt something so beautiful, and so entirely Christmas, in a candle before, ever! I adore NEOM xo
