Stuck in a holiday shopping rut? Look no further than the candle aisle. Luxury candles make for stress-free holiday gifts for women and men on your list because they effortlessly transform any space. The simple act of placing a new candle on a coffee table, bookshelf or nightstand instantly turns a plain, lifeless room into a soothing self-care sanctuary.
“Candles make a great gift because they feel like someone is taking care of you,” says Kudzi Chikumbu, a candle curator in Los Angeles behind the popular Instagram account Sir Candle Man. “The idea of pausing, lighting the candles and waiting to smell the candle is really an invitation to take a breath — it’s a gift of rest. Taking the time to pick the right scent represents being thoughtful — the makings of a perfect gift.”
