Light Up Your Christmas with Yankee Candles

I have a friend who is Yankee Candle mad and I used to wonder what she was so crazy about until I tried one out for myself.

I love scented candles -they give the room such a wonderful ambience.

I have to admit that I also have favourites and I am very partial to Yankee Candles. They do the most amazing aromas and products.

When I recently attended the Ideal Christmas Home Show, I happened upon the Yankee Candle stall and I knew I had to stop by. The stand smelt glorious and I was quite taken with the Illuma-lids. They looked quite exquisite.

The Illumalids are decorative and fit atop the medium and large jars, helping the candle to burn steadier and allow fragrance distribution.

When I received an opportunity to review Yankee Candles and the Illuma-Lids, I could not wait for them to arrive and try out the lids especially.

I received the Santa Ilumalid, Dream Crackle Illumalid, Red Apple Wreath jar and Snowflake Cookie jar.


The Red Apple Wreath has the lovely festive aroma of apples, cinnamon, walnuts and maple. It is the perfect scent for the season. The Illumalid gives the candle an even more wonderful look.


If you love the scent of cookies (who doesn’t?), this Snowflake cookie is the one for you with the warm comforting scent of cookies and icing. Doesn’t it bring to mind the most delightful images.

So while we will be baking and cooking and eating and relaxing, I shall be burning my Yankee Candles brightly and enjoying the wonderful fragrances.

I would be really happy to receive Yankee Candles as gifts (that is a hint if someone is sending me a present) and I am sure that anyone would. It would make a lovely and welcome gift for any household.

I had always thought that candles were more a ‘girly’ thing but I can see that Yankee Candle has taken care of that and there are a number of fragrances that would make ideal gifts for men.

The Yankee Candle website also has other gifts like shades, trays, car fragrances and jar sleeves that make the candles look even more decorative. You can also purchase an online gift voucher that is available immediately so there is still time to gift these lovely candles.
