Christmas Gift Ideas #3 - Christmas Candles

This time of year, it's become a tradition to have Christmas candles about my house this time of year. I always have a candle burning in my room, I find them so relaxing and they leave such a sweet aroma. I've already picked up a few for Christmas gifts as there are so many to choose from and they'll last for ages.

Here are two of my favourite Christmas Candles!

Christmas Cookie (Medium Jar) & Cinnamon & Sugar (Large Jar)

Both of these candles are from the Yankee Candle Company. They are my favourite Christmas scents by far. Cinnamon & Sugar is a lovely mixture of sugar and spice. I'm a fan of cinnamon scent so this was always going to be a winner with me. On the other hand Christmas Cookie is a really sweet vanilla scent that leaves the room smelling yummy! I bought the festive lid in the picture above separately. I think it gives a extra nice touch and apparently there said to make your candle burn better. Vanilla Cupcake is a good alternative to this scent if you can't find it instores.

Yankee Candles are available in a range of different sizes (tea lights, tumblers etc.) and price points. I bought both of these candles on special offer as the big candles can get expensive. Homestore + More actually have a great deal, all Yankee Candles are half price. This is such a good saving as the large jars are usually €26.50 and I got Cinnamon & Sugar for €13.35 which is a steal. I can see these candles selling out quickly as I don't think there is a better bargain out there at the moment.

What is your favourite Yankee Candle?
