Scented Candles

A Christmas gift to suit every candle lover, scented candles can be used all year round and can be lit instantly to create a beautiful aroma and glow as soon as they’re opened! To add that special seasonal touch, opt for a Christmas scented candle like our 250g Noel Luxury Candle as this will add to the festivities by emitting those gorgeous nostalgic aromas such as cinnamon, frankincense, pine and orange. Not only does this scrummy candle come with its very own lid, but it is also supplied with a travel bag and a box our Owlchemy matches, so you can take it with you wherever you go!

If you know somebody who loves to have multiple candles burning all at once, a candelabra will make a perfect gift for them this Christmas. As well as enabling you to create a stunning display of candles, these handy home accessories are also a fantastic way to jazz up a mantle or table and can add a sophisticated and stylish touch to any room.

Tea Lights

Perfect for dotting around your home at Christmas time, tea lights make a great gift and will provide tiny glimmers of light on those dark winter evenings. Not only are these smaller candles incredibly versatile in that they can be placed into a variety of holders, but they can also be easily transported meaning your loved one can take them wherever they go! Our Cranberry Orange Spice Tea Lights will burn for 6-8 hours whilst giving off an enchanting aroma of cranberry and orange slices, loaded with cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg and cloves.

While there are plenty of gorgeous styles to choose from available on the current market, our Owl Lantern Decorative Tea Light Holder is ideal for indoors and out and can be placed on any surface or hung from above to provide a stunning glow! Perfect for candle and owl lovers alike.

Fairy Lights

If you’ve already gone all out with your candle-themed gifts, fairy lights are undoubtedly the next best thing and are sure to be a hit with candle lovers everywhere! While fairy lights are super festive anyway making them ideal for Christmas, they are also great to have up around the home at any time of year, whether that’s in the bedroom to create a soothing glow or placed around the edge of the living room mirror for a glamourous look. For those who like a bit of vibrancy, coloured fairy lights are a good option. Alternatively, white fairy lights are a little less garish and will suit any colour scheme, which is always handy!
