The first of December we pull out our enormous, handmade introduction calendar, which I organise and fill with enjoyable actions, crafts and kindness challenges to assist us get within the spirit of Christmas (or preserve us all sane whereas we look forward to the large day). But, after placing in all the hassle to create this (virtually a) month of magic, I really feel like I actually ought to have my very own extra enjoyable model. Slightly pre Christmas reward for making the magic of Christmas occur in our house. And what could possibly be extra enjoyable than Yankee Candles filling my house with festive scents every single day?
Yes, you learn that proper. You can get your very personal Yankee Candle introduction calendar full of deliciously scented candles and every thing you want to take pleasure in them!

Now, not solely have Yankee Candle give you the proper approach to assist your house really feel festive all through December, they’ve additionally made certain you’ll be ready for any final minute present emergencies! Let me clarify. For all my Christmas organisation I all the time appear to go away really wrapping the presents to the final minute. In truth it’s a little bit of a convention to be up half the evening on Christmas Eve half wrapped up with ribbon, tape caught in my hair and wrapping paper strewn in regards to the place. At the identical time downing mulled wine and attempting not to eat all of the mince pies to preserve me going!
Yankee Candle has made my wrapping a lot simpler this 12 months as I will likely be reusing these beautiful containers to give presents in. What could possibly be higher than recycling one thing this lovely to repay kindness to others. And it couldn’t be simpler to do! Use masking tape within the inside the field to seal the safe the doorways again in place. I’ve used cream and burnt orange ribbons which look superb with the wealthy blues and greens of the field design. Add in festive dried orange slices, bells and folded paper stars to shortly elevate your wrapping.
If you need to go one step additional you should utilize a wax seal and vegetation and flowers to create a very private contact! Using a wax seal is simple. You should buy these as units and use them again and again. Heat the wax over a small flame from a candle. Pour into place on the present (add a sprig of an evergreen or dried flower earlier than you pour) and press your stamp into the wax. Leave the stamp for a couple of seconds till the wax begins to harden. Remove the seal and let your wax totally cool.
