10 Candle Gift Sets That Look Even Better Than Fancy Lights

Bustle and Coveteur are working together to bring you the best mix of the season’s hottest releases, shopping tips, and gifting ideas in ways that are both inspirational and attainable. Check The Holiday Edit channel weekly to see what we’re up to.


There’s something about a fancy candle that just turns your day around. Its gorgeous jar, the luxurious scent it gives off, the way it turns any bathtub into a spa getaway. Candles just make a person happy instantly. Lucky for you, there are plenty of candle gift sets this time of year that will help you save money on these luxury items. Because even though it’s just wax, great candles come with a pretty price tag attached to them.

Turning your room into a cozy, lavender-scented den isn’t likely going to cost a mere five dollars. And if you want to have more than one scent in your arsenal, your budget starts straining with each wax purchase.

But if you dabble in a gift set during the holidays, things become a little more affordable. From sets that are meant to be lit together to boxes that feature candles in pretty jars, there is something for every candle-lover. Check out 10 of the best candle box sets below, and prepare yourself for a few new additions to your fancy collection.

Commodity 3x3 Exploration Kit (2.5 oz each), $38Usual price for a single, 6.5 oz candle: $55
This is a special collection where each candle isn’t meant to be a stand-alone scent. Instead, the three are designed to be layered together to create scents tailored to your individual taste. “Orris” is a floral scent, where the smell of an iris is combined with accents of pink pepper and coriander for a spicy kick. “Book” is inspired by the great works of Hemingway and Fitzgerald, and gives off a woodsy scent along with spicy cucumber and torchwood notes. “Tea” is a citrusy and bright smell with water mint leaf accents. Mixed and matched together, you’ll make some really interesting fragrances.
