Gift Guide: Candles

Naught and Nice candles, $22, by Illume, available at Fleurt. Which one are you?

Personally, I love candles as gifts. I think they're special treats—and often something people won't buy for themselves. Picking a scent can be tricky, but chances are if it's a high quality candle, especially one made with pure essential oils (rather than overpowering synthetic fragrances), you're more likely to delight than disappoint. Here are a few of my personal faves:
