Looking for a one-of-a-kind holiday gift that’s guaranteed to delight? In our 30 Days of Gift Ideas series, we’re sharing one high-quality handmade gift each day for 30 days. Check out the full collection, as it builds, on our 30 Days of Gift Ideas page, and get ready to be inspired. This week’s theme: Crowd-pleasers No holly jolly holiday is complete without the tantalizing aroma of sugary seasonal treats—and none is perhaps more well-loved than that candy cane-encrusted all-star, peppermint bark.
Unlike their (sometimes-cloying) edible counterparts, these hand-poured soy wax candles from Sweet Water Decor temper the decadence of peppermint, vanilla, and sweet berry scents with hints of eucalyptus and cedar. One strike of the match and they’ll be transported back to the dessert-filled yuletides of their youth. Peppermint bark candle from Sweet Water Decor, $18
