    Default Christmas Gift Question: Seeking a Candle

    I don't do candles. Yet I have someone to buy for who is a candle lover. I have no idea how to pick a good one or where to find one.


    Can anyone help? Brand names? Good reputations?

    Thanks.

    If I, as a non candle person, was going to buy a candle I would just go to dusk. But I just don't *get* candles.

    I love candles and Im very happy to get dusk ones. If you can find out the kind of scent they like it will make your job easier, I wouldn't like to receive an oriental type of scent but love anything sweet or creamy smelling.

    Not sure how much you want to spend but around christmas I usually see candle makers in the centres that make these kind.

    It is my favourite candle. And you just burn it a little then pop a tealight in the the top so it lasts forever.

    I am a huge candle fanatic and always have two glasshouse candles ready to burn (one in the lounge and one in our bedroom). Glasshouse also have some lovely Christmas scented candles.

    They have 3 Christmas scents- my favourite is 'White Christmas' - we don't do a real tree at Christmas so this candle makes my place smell divine!
