(ARA) - Do you have some hard-to-buy-for people on your list this year? What about all those last-minute hostess gifts you need to get? If you are looking for a present that almost anyone would enjoy, consider candles.

Not only do scented candles provide a festive glow and a pleasing aroma, they are extremely versatile. Whatever someone’s lifestyle or interests are, chances are good there is a candle for them.

There are so many types of candles and accessories to choose from these days, it’s hard to know where to start. Tapers used to be the only choice; now candles come in all shapes, sizes, scents and colors -- even shimmering and glitter tone options.

“Think about what your gift recipient may want to use it for, and that will help you sort through all the choices,” says Susan Stockman of Yankee Candle Company, a Massachusetts-based candle designer and retailer. “Some people may want simple candles for the dinner table and others may enjoy something

For creating a holiday atmosphere, there are all kinds of options in the scented category. Here are just a few Yankee Candle ideas: Cranberry Chutney (tangy aroma of a real cranberry delicacy), Mistletoe (it just wouldn’t be the holidays without the woodsy ambiance of aromatic evergreens), Festival of Lights (a joyful blend of savory spices, cinnamon and potpourri) and Holiday Bayberry (the evergreen aroma of a colonial favorite is infused with the glow of seasonal spices to create a warm, comfortable haven).

“The trend this year is embellishment,” says Yankee Candle gift designer Jennifer Stathatos. “A lot of candle accessories and packaging have beading, mosaics or fluffy accents. You can definitely find something for every taste.”

Yankee Candle is making things even easier this year by offering a line of reusable gift bags that are a gift in themselves. You can drop a jar candle inside of a simple organza


gift bag and the recipient can later use it for a small evening purse or as wrapping for another gift. Decorative bags also come in silk and felt, some with embroidered designs and feather accents. There is a size to fit every gift, whether it is just one item or several.

Non-traditional containers such as a coffee pot filled with Hazelnut Coffee-scented votive candles, a bag of gourmet coffee beans and some holiday cookies make a welcome gift. Or consider a rustic basket filled with Balsam Fir candles, some pinecones and bird ornaments for a nature-lover’s tree. Any personalized candle gift will say to the recipient that you’ve put thought and care into their gift -- and that’s the best gift of all!
