In 2019, I stayed in New York for Thanksgiving and wasn't able to spend it with my immediate family. Thanksgiving has and will always be one of my favorite holidays, so not being home was difficult. I wanted to somehow be there in spirit so... with the help of my Aunt, I successfully surprised all 18 family members with a treat to let them know I was there in spirit. My Aunt placed these travel size candles at each place setting which included a custom Christmas countdown calendar at the top of each one.
My love for candles runs deep, but 5th & Madison has been one of my favorite candle brands for a few years now and their Holiday scented candle is perfection. It smells just like a Christmas Tree farm and is in a fun festive red votive. As for the Christmas Countdown, this was a personal touch that I added to each candle to make it feel extra special.
I wont be sending any candles back this year, but I thought that it would be nice to share the PDF in case anyone wants to put together this fun gift. They make a great host or hostess gift if you are attending any holiday parties this season!
It you are buying for your home this season or looking for a larger gift, I would recommend purchasing the three wick candle. It comes in a chic box with matches and a lid. And if you are looking for a scent that isn't Holiday, I have listed a few favorites below.
Gardenia, Molokai, Red Currant (smells just like Diptyque Baies), Oak Moss & Amber
