perfect hostess gift

I'm sure we're all going to at least one holiday party and if you're like me - you're tired of bringing wine. If you're looking for a hostess gift - look no further. I've received some amazing candles from friends lately (particularly the lovely Maggie) and thought I would share some of my favorites!

{Pacifica: Tahaitian Gardenia}


{illume candles.. particularly olive & lemonwood)


(Who doesn't love a Yankee Candle? The holiday candles are particularly yummy}


{Woodwick! Love the crackle of the fire and the wood burning scent}

Do you have a favorite candle brand or scent? I'm always looking for new favorites!

{p.s. I'm over at B is for Brown today - check out my Christmas horror story and say hello to the lovely Summer as well!}

No favorite candle brand but for scents I love lavender. Reminds me of a spa. In the winter (now) I am loving cinnamon, apple and pine. Mmmm...

Yankee Candle- I am a fanatic!! I have asked for a few more for Christmas. Hope Santa was listening.
My favorite Holiday scents are Eggnog, Balsam & Cedar, Mistletoe and Santa'a Treats (think fresh baked cookies and frostings... oh yummmy)!!

HUGE fan of candles- who doesn't love them??? I swear that Tahitian Gardenia is the most amazing one of all time. I buy them by the dozen on amazon.com!

Candles are so great. They're so calming. I love the wood wick one. Soy candles are great too. (:
