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 and luxury offerings from the likes of Diptyque, you'll also find unique handmade options from Etsy, which would make thoughtful gifts for a loved one this holiday season.
