Can you smell that? Someone, somewhere, is burning a candle right now. There are tons of us lighting up these days to deal with, well, everything that’s happening this year.
Maybe you’re into the trendy scents of Otherland and Boy Smells. Possibly, you might prefer the always-popular candles of Diptyque and Byredo (there’s one with the whiff of a library!). Or you could like lighting up scents of “Cancelled Plans” and something that “Smells Like This Could Have Been an Email.”
Since there are so many of us lighting up to help with burn out, chances are the candle lover in your life has stocked up on a lot of different scents — and probably doesn’t need yet another candle to add to their collection.
That might make shopping for gifts that they’ll actually appreciate much, much harder. After all, what can you give someone who loves candles that isn’t a candle?
Turns out, there are plenty of gifts out there for the candle lover that aren’t just another candle. We don’t want to fan the flames, but they might actually be better than some of the candles that they haven’t burned yet.
From a set of matches that remind you to “chill the f out” to a ceramic diffuser that’s taken over the internet, you’ll find 20 gifts for candle lovers below.
