2010 Holiday Gift Guide


Wondering what to get your fragrance loving friend this holiday? Here's a list of products any candle or fragrance fan will love.

Thymes Frasier Fir candle in Red Pot
Mountain fresh with the aromatic snap of crisp Siberian Fir needles, heartening cedarwood and relaxing sandalwood.
I like the deep red glass and the simplicity of the lid and packaging. This candle also offers almost twice the burn time of the standard size Frasier Fir candle for just $34. 12 oz.

Nest Holiday Candle
The quintessential holiday fragrance with a blend of mandarine orange, cinnamon, pine and eucalyptus.
The Nest Holiday candle is a staple on our gift list. This fragrance best encapsulates the holidays. It's not overly tree or fruity and it's not sweet or gourmand. It's fresh, festive and brings back memories from years gone by. Be sure to buy more than one! If you buy one as a gift, you won't want to give it up. The 3-wick size is gorgeous and can be re-used as a flower vase when the candle is done.
If you want to give the gift of scent without a candle, the petite diffusers by Voluspa are fantastic. The packaging is beautiful and the price is great at $28. With 24 fragrances available, you're sure to find just the right scent. Golden Cypress Sawara is perfect this time of year.


The petite jar candles by Voluspa are great for travel or for trial. The easy screw top lid and sturdy glass makes them handy on the go. At just $6 each, they make fun stocking stuffers. 15 hours each. 24 fragrances.

The Tocca Eau de Parfum gift set couldn't be more adorable and for just $45, it's an incredible value. This gift set includes three 0.5 oz bottles of perfume in Tocca's signature fragrances: Florence, Stella and Cleopatra. You could also break apart this gift set to give 3 separate stocking stuffers, tie into the bow on a gift or use as an add-on to a larger gift. So charming!

The solid perfume by Tocca makes great stocking stuffers. They work well for travel or for discrete touch-up during the day - just toss in your purse and go. Available in most Tocca fragrances including Cleopatra, Stella and Giulietta. $30 each

I am absolutely addicted to Beau Bain bath bombs. Hand made with simple ingredients, these bath bombs are a wonderful, pampering gift. The fragrances are divine and these bath bombs leave your skin moisturized and silk smooth. Available in a 6-pack, 12-pack and individually. $8-$30

Long-stemmed lighters are great for lighting candles, fires and grills. These refillable lighters come with a life-time warranty. Available in 7", 9" leather-wrapped handle and 12" with stand.

Wick Dipper & Snuffer
The only way we extinguish candles at home is with a wick dipper. Simple use the wick dipper to push the burning wick into the melted wax to drown out the flame with out any smoke or soot. At just $5.95, they make a great stocking stuffer for any candle-lover. The tweezer style snuffers will extinguish a taper candle without any smoke or soot.

"A bayberry candle, burned to the socket, puts luck in the home, food in the larder, and gold in the pocket."
Our favorite holiday gift is true bayberry tapers. It's an old New England tradition to burn bayberry tapers to the nub on Christmas Eve or New Years Eve for health and prosperity in the year to come. Available in 6" and 10" pairs.

  1. I never realized how much I am in need of a wick dipper. I think "Santa" is going to buy me one from Candles Off Main this year (and when I say Santa, I mean myself). :)
