Best Christmas Candles

I don’t know about you, but there’s something about the colder months that inspires me to have my home smelling like the holidays—every day. Whether it’s to mimic the buttery smell of freshly-baked sugar cookies or the smell of crisp pine needles, there’s something about a well-made holiday scent that makes your home feel extra welcoming and comfortable.

Since baking cookies every single day isn’t very realistic and not everyone has a real Christmas tree in their homes, our favorite Christmas and holiday candles can really save the day.

Instead of adding an extra item to your list to pick up at the store, we’ve found the best candles for the holidays on Amazon Prime that can be shipped directly to you in just two days. Cozy up with a cup of hot chocolate and one of the Christmas candles below all winter long.
