Christmas Gift Guide || Candles, Candles And More Candles!

candles Welcome to my second gift guide of the year, now I don’t know about you but I love a candle or ten! It wasn’t until I was going through my gift guide selection the other day I realised that I had so many candles to share with you. They are all pretty special so I thought it was only right they got their own dedicated post, I’ve also got a couple of extra non candle bits to share with you perfect for the home. Let’s get started!

molton brown christmas gift ideas 2016 I’m going to start with a brand you all know I adore and that’s Molton Brown. Can we just take a moment to appreciate the adorable packaging… those bells they sound just like Christmas and I can’t stop jingling them! Seriously, if you want to get into the christmas spirit you need to try these little beauties. The candle is Limited Edition and honestly smells divine. It’s an elegant, seasonal candle blended with notes of juniper berry, pine tree and oakmoss, filling the space with the bracing aromas of Laponia’s untouched winter landscape.

This is the ideal home fragrance to create a sense of anticipation for the festive season, either keep it for yourself or I guess you can gift it to someone… I don’t think you will want to once you smell it though! Oops! The collection also includes a gorgeous hand wash and hand lotion, the perfect touch to any bathroom this season!

christmas gift ideas 2016 When I was younger one of the fragrances that I always remember my mum wearing was Angel by Thierry Mugler. Now every time I smell that scent it reminds me of my mum, it’s a classic and it now comes in candle form. Say hello to the Angel deluxe star candle. This candle has a blend of sweet red fruits, soft caramel, honey and praline combined with the captivating power of patchouli and vanilla create a sumptuous fragrant atmosphere in your home. It’s so gorgeous and I just adore the packaging, simply stunning. Hands up if your mum used to wear this too!

dragonfly tea candle Next up is one for the tea lovers out there, Dragonfly Tea have recently launched a luxury candle in celebration of their 15th anniversary and wow I have to say this smells beautiful. It is steeped in warm and fragrant tea notes, imbued with a slight muscatel sweetness, and rounded with aromatic hints of fine aged wood. This candle offers a 55 hours burn time which is pretty impressive and I love the simplistic and chic packaging, the perfect gift for the tea lover, the ethical hedonist, or even the hard-to-buy-for aunt! Buy the Limited Edition: Luxury Tea and Candle Gift Box here.

I have been using their bath and body products for years now and I always repurchase because although they are available from the high street I always feel that sense of luxury when using this brand. Did you know they also have a home fragrance collection? These are going to make perfect this Christmas.

Whether you are looking for a stocking filler or a main gift these are really affordable and smell divine too, the candles start at just £5 and this Signature Sanctuary Votive candle is perfect for creating your own Sanctuary where you can relax and unwind. Definitely one to buy for busy ladies on the go that just need that little bit of ‘me’ time to relax and chill out. If you head over to the Sanctuary Spa website they have the Candle Bar which is a section where you can choose 3 candles to put in a personalised gift box for just £10. I also love the Luxury Oud Diffuser, it’s an intensely indulgent floral oud fragrance with hints of golden saffron top notes & a white floral & rose heart resting on a decadent woody, musky & sweet amber base. Gorgeous.

jo malone candle gift christmas gift guide jo malone christmas gift ideas 2016 I had to save the best until last because if you are looking to really impress someone this year then you need to get them something from Jo Malone of course! You all know that I recently got my first ever Jo Malone Fragrance which was Basil & Neroli, ever since I haven’t stopped checking the website for things I need next.

The Pomegranate Noir Home Candle is definitely a must and smells absolutely beautiful. As you can see it comes comes beautifully packaged with a presentation box and matches included. Super fancy. Jo Malone describe the scent as sensual with notes of ruby-rich pomegranate, raspberry and plum , spiked with pink pepper, laced with Casablanca lily and spicy woods. This is candle will give you a feeling of sheer indulgence it will last for many weeks, perfect throughout the season. Divine!
