Light up this holiday season with a candle advent calendar

Candle advent calendars are big for 2022: From Yankee Candle to Diptyque

While chocolate is without a doubt the most popular Christmas countdown, we think a candle advent calendar is just the thing to make your home feel festive and smell amazing throughout December.

As well as affordable brands like Yankee Candle, plus luxury offerings from the likes of Diptyque and Jo Malone, you'll also find unique handmade options from Etsy and NotOnTheHighStreet which would make thoughtful gifts for a loved one this holiday season.
