Space NK‘s elegant Christmas Candle, $55, will fill your home with 50 hours of a modern take on a traditional holiday scent.

Red Flower‘s petal topped candles, $34, give the holidays a romantic glow.

Luxe French perfumerie Diptyque‘s gorgeously packaged spruce, incense, and ginger candles are our favorite splurge of the season at $72 each.

D.L. & Co.‘s Ex Libris, $50, is the perfect candle for any book lovers on your list.

Voluspa’s Seasons Black Box Gift Set, $48, holds four gold–embossed scented votives for 120 hours of burn time.

Tocca’s Candle Glow to Go Gift Set, $42, puts the luxury back in travel.

Each of the candles in Archipelago’s Seven Wonders gift set is based on one of the seven wonders of the world. And at $39 a box, it’s a whole lot cheaper than a tour around the world.

The clean lines and subtle scents of the Malin + Goetz Junior Candle Set, $58, make it one gift set we might just keep for ourselves.

We love the Art-Deco-inspired vessel that holds Classico & Fantasia‘s Evergreen Garland Holiday Candle, $30. And best of all, it’s reusable even after the candle’s gone.

You’ll look like a big spender when you give Chesapeake Bay‘s Warm Cashmere collection — but the three-piece votive set will set you back just $15.
