I know it’s a little early to talk about holiday gifts, but how about gifts in general?
I love candles! I used to fill my house with all kinds of candles… warm autumn scents like pumpkin spice and vanilla in the fall, cinnamon and evergreen around the holidays and flowery or fruity scents in the spring. Now, I stick with the Aveda Shampure candle throughout the year. I love the scent and how long it lasts.
One candle might change my mind, though. The Capri Blue candle from Anthropologie (Minnesota friends—it’s also available at the Highland Park Patina Store in St. Paul) smells wonderful and looks beautiful. It’s not cheap, but it lasts and gives off a lovelier than lovely scent. I think it’s the perfect hostess, birthday or holiday gift for just about everyone. And because it comes in many colors and styles, you can match it to your home decor. I’m really loving the look of the one above!
