As winter's increasingly frigid temperatures encourage us to swaddle ourselves in blankets and hole up in bed, one way to make your home feel cozier is to use candles. While they are a year-round pleasure, candles feel ultra luxurious around the holidays and can transform your home with intoxicating seasonal scents such as pine and cardamom. Plus, once the candle’s burning time is through, many vessels make for beautiful vases (or super chic pencil holders) and are an easy hostess gift—just ask our contributing editor, Katherine Schwarzenegger, who keeps them on hand for just that. Here are several that have us excited for the cold nights ahead!
