A festive-themed candle is the perfect seasonal decoration if you love all things entertaining and Christmas.

Create a magical, welcoming vibe with a scented Christmas candle, or impress the most observant of guests with a Christmas shaped candle.

Here’s everything you need to know about choosing a festive candle, including the Christmas candles we’re shopping right now.

Which candle scents are perfect for Christmas?

Select a rich and woody pine aroma to replicate the smell of a real Christmas tree, or choose gourmand scents like cinnamon and ginger (naturally, Glasshouse Fragrances are a firm favourite) to invoke the warming sensation of Yuletide baking.

However, it doesn’t have to be all about the smell. There are plenty of Christmas-themed candles (like these fun iterations from Shop Your Home and Garden) that double as a mantle or table centrepiece.

Discover our favourite shaped and scented Christmas candles, all perfect additions to your festive decor.
