Holiday Gift Giving Ideas - Candles

I have candles burning in my office and around my home all the time, so I adore receiving, and giving them at any time of the year.
Here are some lovely gift ideas...

How fun is this? From Tommy Bahama bring the beach to you with the flickering tropical fragrance of the islands in 7 shots labled Cheers, Fiesta, Happy Hour, Salute, Celebration, Party and Toast.
I also love the Tommy Bahama Pineapple Cilantro candles for a slice of beach time when I'm everywhere but at the beach. TommyBahama.com

Summer by the sea in Greece surrounded by the fragrance of figs warmed by the sun - and time stands still. The new large diptyque Figuier candle has the same effect. Designed to burn for 110 intoxicating hours, indoor and out. Its embossed porcelain-over-earthenware casing created by the famous French porcelain house, Virebent, makes a lasting impression, too.

The notes: Fig wood, freshness of its leaves and the milky sap dyptich.com

Bath and Bodyworks Kitchen Spice candle smells like the holidays. And that never gets old! A faster burn, these candles only last 25 - 40 hours, but are so inexpensive - who cares?

  1. Awesome ideas. Also, holiday shoppers looking to go green should consider eGift cards over traditional plastic. According to Plenty Magazine, plastic gift card waste accounts for 75 million lbs of the PVC found in landfills each year. http://www.giftzip.com is the eco-friendly alternative, allowing you to shop, send, and receive virtually.
