Happy Wednesday, friends! We are in full party prep mode over here for Saturday, and despite a few setbacks around the house, I am really looking forward to it! I wanted to share some of the best holiday fragrances for your home. I notoriously burn Capri Blue Fir and Firewood every year starting the day after Thanksgiving until well into January because it is such a great fragrance. Here are a few others that are go-tos of mine for the holiday season as well. These fragrances are in no particular order and are at varying price points.
- Capri Blue Fir & Firewood: tin candle // large candle
- Hearth & Hand Bergamot Spice: small candle | large tin candle
- Winter Dough Bowl Candle: made in North Carolina
- Bath and Body WorksFrosted Cranberry: 3 Wick candle
- Bath & Body Works ‘Tis the Season: 3 Wick candle
- Nest Holiday Limited Edition: 8.1 oz candle
And the perfect gift to give with a candle is a candle snuffer. I love this one as a hostess gift or stocking stuffer. Have you checked out my other gift guides? I featured Capri Blue Fir & Firewood on my gift guide for her, too, because it really is just that good. If you are searching for the perfect gift for him, check out a collection of gift guides here. And don’t forget to shop the best of North Carolina with my favorites found here.
I have been sharing a bit more about my week on Instastories, such a blegh Monday evening where I bought the wrong paint finish and made not one, but two typos on our holiday cards this year. And yesterday, I finally figured out which one of our dogs was tearing up our door frames as a new trend, and it wasn’t the one we thought. I tell ya what, the holidays have a tendency to make us all a little out of sync, don’t they?
I’ve found my favorite way to relax is to come home, turn on A Charlie Brown Christmas on Pandora, light a candle, and relax for about 30 minutes before checking off our to-do list, and it has definitely helped center me.
What is your favorite fragrance for the holiday season? How are you preparing?
