Christmas is absolutely the best time to indulge in a candle. It’s the perfect excuse to splash out on one of life’s luxuries and will certainly help to get you into the Christmas spirit. Here’s my round up of the best Christmas Candles 2020.

There’s a whole host of Christmas candles to choose from this year, so I thought I’d make it a little easier for you to decide which you need.

Best Christmas Candles 2020 – Diptyque

Diptyque have an absolutely beautiful design this year. This, combined with the fact that the quality of these candles is amazing, make them the perfect choice.

Best Christmas Candles 2020 – Goutal

I love the Goutal Christmas candle. It is so festive, and it really fills a room, even before it is lit!! It is called Une Forêt d’Or Limited-Edition Candle and it’s the freshest, most authentic take on pine!

I am loving this year’s red glass, with the white and gold Christmas scene. It is magical! Order it at Liberty* now.

Best Christmas Candles 2020 – Molton Brown

I am absolutely loving new scent from Molton Brown for Christmas. It’s called Juniper Jazz and it’s inspired by the roaring 20s and decadent parties. Order it at Molton Brown here*.

The packaging is so gorgeous and if you like the look of this, then I suggest you definitely check out the Molton Brown Advent Calendar for 2020. It has a stack of festive scents, alongside some MB classics and there’s a big value saving..

NEOM Christmas Wish

NEOM candles are amazing. I love Christmas Wish which is a lovely sweet, cinnamony affair.

  1. Great selection, but I also like to support the small independents who can offer great value. My favourites this year have been by Nui Naturals – would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a beautiful gift.
