So you’ve got a Christmas shopping list for your family, and you’ve got one for your best friends too… but what about your home? It’s a place where you spend a significant amount of time, so it only makes sense that you gift your humble abode with something special. So, without further ado, here are the best Christmas gifts for your home that will make your space look and smell good.
Officine Universelle Buly Scented Matches Campagne D’Italie
For something that can quickly - and effectively - refresh the smell of your space, you can’t go past these scented matchsticks. Yep, you read correctly: each stick is made from wood but is coated in a scented formula, which fragrances the room when lit. Clever.
Gucci Star Eye hand-shaped trinket tray
The *only* way to show off your trinkets this Christmas is with a designer ornament, of course. Gucci’s Star Eye hand-shaped trinket tray is delicately made with porcelain and is the eye-catching addition to your living room or bedroom you didn’t know you needed.
Glasshouse Fragrances Scent Scene Duo
Who knew that a stick diffuser could look so good?! Instead of a traditional reed diffuser where the sticks are dipped into a fragrant solution (which can prove to be messy, not to mention, is susceptible to spilling), Glasshouse Fragrances have already soaked the sticks in a delicious Christmas plum scent to invigorate your home.
Jo Malone Decorated Candle Collection
This gift set features three delicious Jo Malone candles in their best-selling scents ( Lime Basil & Mandarin, English Pear & Freesia, and Peony & Blush), as well as three ceramic lids to keep the beautiful scents locked in the votives for longevity. Keep all three for yourself, or give the others away as gifts.
Diptyque Torsade Candle Holder
One way to Christmas-ify your space is with a candle holder. Place your Diptyque candle on the black base, light the candle, then carefully pop the ‘lid’ back on top of the base to boost the ambiance of your room.
Cire Trudon Nazareth Christmas Candle
With notes like clove, cinnamon and orange, this limited edition candle from Cire Trudon is a clear winner when it comes to spicing up your home this Christmas. Top tip: Don’t forget to trim the wick every time you light it to avoid the wick from smoking.
Maison Balzac Brûle Parfum
This season, Maison Balzac has proved that essential oil diffusers don’t have to look daggy. In fact, we’d be more than pleased to receive this as a gift this festive season. The trick to prolonging your scent experience is to pour fresh water into the top compartment, and then add just a few drops of essential oil into the water. Light the candle at the bottom and enjoy.
On the hunt for some Christmas gifts? Here are the best ones you can get for $25 and under. Score.
