Yankee Candle Festive Challenge

Recently I was contacted by Yankee Candle and asked if I would like to take part in their blogger Christmas challenge, having worked with Yankee for over a year and becoming a massive fan of their products I jumped at the chance. To take part in the challenge, I was sent the following products:


Two Medium Jar Candle Gift Set: Each gift set contains 1 x Red Apple Wreath and 1 x Angels Wings. To me these scents are the perfect scents to fill your lounge and bedroom with happy memories over the Christmas period.

Red Apple Wreath is a candle which I found last year over Christmas. To me this is a true Christmas candle which is the perfect candle to burn on Christmas Day. The candle gives off a sweet scent which consist of apples, cinnamon, walnuts and maple. The candle creates a warm, happy glow around the household and is even presented in a red colour which reminds me of Christmas. This would be perfect for the Yankee Candle lover who adores Christmas and would love to burn a scent in the afternoon, on Christmas Day when the children are playing with their presents, the Queen's speech is on and family board games are just about to make an appearance.

Angel wings is one of the first Yankee Candles I ever purchased and is one of my favorites. To me the candle has a wonderful meaning behind it. Every time I look at this candle and light it over the Christmas period, it reminds me of those that are not here today in person but are with me in spirit. It gives me a sense of warmth and happiness. The candle itself has a floral, sweet, warm, cosy scent. I think this candle is ideal for any lover but those in particular who are keen to remember or are thinking about a loved one at Christmas

This gift set consists of 2 medium jars. The RRP of these jars are £28. The burn time on each jar is 65 - 90 hours. These jars are old classics and will not disappoint you if you choose to buy them.

Sugared Apple Tealight Candles: As soon as you open the box of these apple tealight candles be prepared to be hit by a sweet, lively, crispy smell. These tealights smell as described, Sugared sweet apples. The smell of these candles remind me of baking, something which as a family we do at Christmas.I love the memory these candles easily create as Christmas is such a important time for me to create memories with my family. 

These candles make the perfect stocking filler this Christmas. They are not just great to gift and use at Christmas, they are also a fantastic gift to use over the whole of  the winter season. The candles look fantastic teamed up in an essential tealight holder but are also great for having on hand in case of any power cuts or other emergencies. With a RRP of £6.99, these candles are a simple but affordable treat. Each tealight candle burns for 4 to 6 hours.


Everyday Essential Tea Light Holder: These are the perfect extra to accompany any Yankee Candle Tealights. These are a simple but beautiful idea to add that extra glow in your home for Christmas. Each tealight holder has "Yankee Candle" engraved into the holder. These tea light holders look like an expensive accessory however priced at just 99p, these would make a fantastic stocking filler or gift around the tree this Christmas.

Silver Reindeer Jar Candle Holder: This Christmas my whole lounge is themed with a silver touch. The silver theme makes my lounge look elegant, charming and bright. This silver reindeer holder is the perfect add on, which manages to present my Yankee candle jars to a high standard. My Yankee Candle  Christmas jars are able to sit at home in pride of place in my lounge, when visitors pass through they will ask where my beautiful reindeer decoration came from and I am able to tell them that my simple but beautiful decoration is from Yankee Candle. 

This jar holder is priced at £19.99 which I feel is fairly reasonable. This would make the perfect gift for any candle lovers this Christmas as it has a beautiful but simple Christmas message to tell. Although this holder is mainly a Christmas themed product, Yankee also offer other beautiful holders which can be used all year.

This year I have really jumped on the band wagon and filled my home with beautiful Yankee Candle scents. Every room in my house is filled with a gorgeous scent that not only reminds me of Christmas time but brings back a few memories which manage to create a few smiles in my household this Christmas. To add that extra Christmas touch, this Christmas I will also be gifting members of my family some Yankee treats.
