I don't know about you, but Christmas is my favourite time of the year. I love the pretty lights, the food, the presents and the fact that it brings families together. Aside from all of those things I also love the smell of Christmas. There are just those certain scents that make you feel all Christmassy and happy.
Last week my lovely other half James gave me two little early Christmas presents, in the form of Christmas Yankee candles and wax tarts. They were packaged up in cellophane with gift bows and were just perfect, so I thought I would share them here on my blog as I think they'd make lovely stocking filler gifts!
The candles and wax tarts I received were all Christmas themed: Snowflake Cookie, Merry Marshmallow, Red Apple Wreath, Christmas Eve, Apple & Pine Needle, Christmas Memories and Christmas Rose. So far I have started burning Snowflake Cookie and Red Apple Wreath and absolutely love them. I can't wait to try out the rest. The scents are so strong, yet not too overpowering. You can blow the candles out and the scent will still linger for a good while. I have placed my candles in a couple of Nordic print candle holders I purchased from Poundland and will use my wax tarts on a burner that I bought from Wilkos for a couple of pounds.
I think Christmas candles (or any of the Yankee candles or tarts) would make the perfect stocking filler presents for candle-lovers this Christmas. You could even bundle them up in cellophane and tie a ribbon round the top to make a little personalised gift set. Just make sure that the person has a burner if you are going to buy them wax tarts.
Yankee candles and tarts are usually found in gift and card shops, but you can also purchase them online. If you are looking for cheap Yankee candles and tarts (singular or in bundles) I highly recommend having a look on eBay.
What is your favourite Yankee Christmas scent? I'm thinking of doing a little post on all of my Christmas decorations soon so keep an eye out.
