Christmas Home Goddess Gift Guide
Absolutely stuck for gift ideas? Does your loved one not like foodie or beauty gifts? Well...everyone likes candles and homey comforting, decorative items, so fear no more...here is a gift guide for every home goddess out there!
Yankee Candles; Amber Moon
I've always heard a lot about the Yankee candles but had never actually tried any. There are so many scents available, but one of my favourites is Amber moon! It's subtle, yet strong enough to really make a difference to the room it's burning in. Amber Moon smells of warm golden amber in the evening breeze with added patchouli and sandalwood. Yankee candles are amazing, they're by far the fastest to infuse a room with their lovely scent - working faster than the average candle and Yankee's signature classic jar also reflects the warm, relaxed sense of style that's always at home. If you want a variety of scents to give your loved one, Yankee have a range of gift packs, big and small to suit all!
Provides 25-40 hours of burning time.
RRP: £7.99 Small jar / Available from Yankeecandle.co.uk

Ted Baker New York Reed Diffuser
A diffuser with a great story! Ted Baker has carefully crafted a stunning collection of diffusers inspired by stories from cities close to his heart. I have had the pleasure of receiving the New York diffuser which combines cedarwood and vanilla to deliver a decadent and evocative fragrance. Inspired by the story of Interval girl Elsie O'Mailey who seized the spotlight at Brooklyn's Cotton Club in 1923, this scent echoes the glamour of NY and the opportunities found there.
Presented in a beautifully decorated earthenware vessel, this diffuser comes with a generous bundle of reeds that slowly release the oil's signature NY scent. Perfect for the designer brand junkie!
Other scents include: Athens, Tokyo, Miami, Sydney and London.
