As soon as Boots put their 3 for 2 Christmas shop live online and in store they do a *Star Gift* each week, this is always something big and slightly more pricey that they usually drop down to half price for a limited time and I managed to bag an absolute bargain when they put their big Yankee Candle Christmas Gift from £45 to £23! Of course being the candle addict that I am I snapped this gift set up for myself pretty quickly, but I thought I'd share with you all whats inside because it's such a great Christmas gift idea, you could even buy it to split the gifts up as a couple of stocking fillers and what not!
Within the Yankee Candle Christmas Gift Set which is exclusive to Boots theres 1 Christmas Eve Medium Jar Candle, 1 Winter Glow Small Jar Candle, 2 Cosy by the Fire Votive Candles, 2 Bundle Up Votive Candles, 1 pack of Christmas Eve Yankee Candle Tea Lights and 1 pack of Christmas Cookie Yankee Candle Tea Lights, all together these would cost a whopping £49.16 if bought separately so getting the set for £23.00 was such a steal.
The scents within this set are all what you would expect, super festive....Firstly theres Christmas Eve which not only looks very Christmasy from the jar but smells subtly of all things Christmas too, think vanilla, berries, cinnamon and nutmeg it's so lovely and not overpowering in the slightest. Winters Glow has more of an outdoors vibe, it's smells fresh and like spruce trees, it's definitely a proper festive smell. Then we have Cosy By The Fire, this one contains a warm mix of ginger, clove, and orange combined with woody notes to give the snap of a crackling fire and the comfort of a hot aromatic drink beside it, I find this one more autumnal than Christmasy but it's still nice. Bundle Up also has that outdoors vibe for me too of festive trees and freshness but theres also clean linen notes within it too which I guess is pretty apt when your 'bundled up' in layers of clothes when it's cold he he. Finally we have Christmas Cookie, this is a hugely popular scent for Yankee Candle at Christmas and rightly so because it smells gorgeous, it has a buttery rich, vanilla and sugar cookie scent which is so divine I good eat it he he, definitely the perfect candle for that person who likes sweet, sugary, food like scents.
Overall I'm so happy I picked this bundle up from Boots, it was such a bargain and even though I think it's gone back in price now I think it such a nice Christmas present for any candle or Yankee Candle addict!
Did you manage to pick this bargain up beaut's? I'd love to know!
