While candles are great all year round, there is something about the holidays that just screams for candlelight. But you can’t just light any non-scented candle. Where’s the fun in that?  It’s got to have some Christmas-y scent. Luckily,  DW Home Candles, a candle company we reviewed before, has a ton of candles that work perfectly. And, of course, since this is Guilty Eats, they are all food-related.

Whether you’re looking for a candle that will make your house smell like you’ve been baking when you haven’t (not everyone has the time or the talent to make cookies and pies) or you want your room to smell like one big candy cane, there is a candle (or two) for you.

Let’s take a look at some of the most delicious-sounding holiday candles that DW Home Candle has to offer. The names alone may have you ready with your debit card, but the different scents each candle consists of makes them all sound even better.

These DW Home Candles are perfect for foodies at the holidays

  • Holiday Cider: red apples, clove, cinnamon, vanilla bean, nutmeg, orange zest, and rum
  • Sugar Cookie: vanilla cookies, cinnamon, and powdered sugar
  • Vanilla Coffee: vanilla sugar, vanilla bean, steamed milk, dark-roasted coffee
  • Salted Caramel: salted caramel (obviously), buttercream, and toffee
  • Chestnut Praline Latte: coffee, warm spices, milk, chestnuts, and hazelnuts
  • Cinnamon Buns: cinnamon butter, vanilla bean frosting, pecans, and sweet buns (can I  have five?)
  • Maple Pancakes: maple, caramelized sugar, pancake batter, pumpkin, toasted nuts (I have this one and omg it’s amazing)
  • Pecan Pie & Cream: roasted pecans, butter, vanilla bean, cane sugar (drooling)
  • Sugar & Spice: cane sugar, vanilla cream, cinnamon, allspice, and nutmeg (perfect for the cookie swap when all you did was buy cookies at the store)
  • Gingerbread House: buttercream, gingerbread, cinnamon, zesty orange
  • Candy Cane: vanilla sugar and peppermint
  • Milk & Cookies: buttercream, sprinkles, and shortbread
  • Christmas Morning: vanilla bean, sugar, and coffee

Oh and because it’s so close to the holidays, a lot of these candles are on sale! Is there anything better than a candle sale? Nope!

Also, don’t worry about burning these after the holidays. Every one of these smells is great all year round. Even the Candy Cane one just gives off a fresh, pepperminty smell that can work even in June.
