There’s no simpler gift than a scented candle. Whether you’re heading to dinner and need a thoughtful gesture for your host or searching for a gift for someone who seemingly has everything, a candle fits the bill every time. It’s a straightforward and pocket-friendly holiday gift, maintaining its popularity without becoming cliché. We still believe it’s a fantastic idea.
However, unless you’re willing to dedicate weeks to scouring every major retailer and local wax artisan, finding the perfect candle for gifting can be a daunting task. The market is flooded with options, and the descriptions often lack the clarity to convey the overall vibe. That’s where we step in. These scented candles represent the best, making them the ultimate gifts to give this year.
Here are some of the best scented candles to give as gifts this Christmas…
#1. D.S. & Durga Portable Fireplace Candle
If you want something smoky and cozy, then this is the candle for you.
#2. Brooklyn Candle Studio Maui Candle
Want to get them thinking of summer days? Brooklyn Candle Studio’s Maui is one of our favorite interpretations, mostly down to those base notes of sea moss and driftwood.
#3. Ralph Lauren Home Rhinelander Flagship Candle
The signature smell of Ralph’s NYC flagship candle is wonderful in the colder months. Valencia orange, clove, cinnamon, and amber add up to a citrus-spicy masterpiece.
#4. Diptyque Temple des Mousses Candle
Diptyque’s new venture is refillable candles. We like this earthy green holder, and the cool, green smell is very Zen as well. Plus, we can never argue with sustainability.
#5. Paul Smith Bookworm 3-Wick Candle
The scent is reminiscent of woody library shelves, backed by the crisp clean of parchment and a fiery dose of amber.
#6. Boy Smells Italian Kush Candle
Boy Smells is hot, and its candles are everywhere. The most noteworthy, though, is the kush set—all of which list cannabis in the scent notes. You don’t get a ton of kush in this lemony-basil candle, but it’s there and quite pleasant.
#7. Parquet Leather Candle
A candle made specifically for men who love basketball.
#8. Byredo Cotton Poplin Scented Candle
One of the Byredo classics. Nothing beats the smell of fresh, line-dried clothing.
#9. Le Labo Santal 26 Candle
This candle gives off a spicy, smokey, musky, and leathery scent. It’s as seductive as a candle can get.
#10. Capri Blue Volcano Tin Candle
Have you ever been in a clothing store? If yes, you’ve smelled Capri Blue. Fresh, fruity, and just a bit sugary, it’s a lovely candle.
