Candles gift guide

For the aroma or for the ambience, find the perfect candle to light up someone’s home this Christmas

Christmas is magical for lots of reasons, but one thing you can’t beat is walking through the door to family, friends and all those amazing seasonal scents. Whether it’s the nutmeg being grated into glasses of eggnog, the ginger biscuits in the oven, or maybe just the smell of fresh laundry, a wonderful aroma can really take you home this Christmas. So for the candle lovers on your list (and who doesn’t love burning candles during winter?), take a look at our top picks from the little to the large, and the spiced to the sweet. 


Remember the Christmas when…

Yankee Candle Christmas Memories

Quite simply, this is for the person who makes a house a home. The clue’s in the title: Christmas Memories. So whether it’s Mum’s impeccable Christmas wrapping or Dad’s hopeless contribution to Charades, bring back all those memories with notes of cinnamon spice, sugar cookies and warm vanilla. Even better, they can enjoy up to 90 hours of this gorgeous fragrance.


If not white, make Christmas bright

Yankee Candle All Is Bright

If they’re not afraid of a bold, citrus fragrance then this is the Yankee for them. Mixing sparkling grapefruit and orange with the warmth of sweet musk, this beautiful scent will brighten even the darkest of winter evenings – and as a signature scent across our range of large jars, they can enjoy up to 150 hours of the fragrance too.  


Exclusive to Boots

Yankee Candle Small Jar Gift

The perfect little smelly for the kitchen, bathroom or bedside table, this lovely gift will fill the home with a truly relaxing and comforting fragrance. If they also happen to be the kind of person who burns the candle at both ends over Christmas, treat it as your way of encouraging them to rest, relax and recover from all that holiday fun. 


Crackles as it burns

Woodwick Fireside Hearthwick 

Do they love nothing more than snuggling up in front of a fire with a good book, movie or puzzle? Then this is the candle for them, the Woodwick Fireside Hearthwick crackles as it burns with a dancing flame that soothes and calms within moments of burning. 


Three layers of lovely

Woodwick Trilogy Warm Woods

With a beautiful hourglass design and a savvy lid that doubles up as a heat resistant mat, this trilogy of wintry woodland scent is really something. Drifting through three fragrances – Fireside, Redwood and Sandlewood Clove, it’s the perfect treat for all the hosts and hard workers this Christmas. 


Nice as pie

Woodwick Spiced Blackberry

Mmmm, just say that to yourself: spiced blackberry. Is your mouth watering at the thought of Christmassy blackberry puddings? Us too… For those with a sweet tooth or a love of fruity fragrances, wrap up this rich blackberry, cinnamon and vanilla drizzled candle and let them fill their home with the most delightful scent of the season.
