Courtesy of Ricky's So you left your present-hunting to the last minute (again) and now you're standing on your hostess's doorstep with a Yankee Candle. There's nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that it's wholly unoriginal (though I do love the Christmas Cookie scent). So I went on the hunt for more inspired options. I found them in the RickyHome collection, which includes a line of New York City-inspired scented candles. Care to gift a whiff of Street Meat?

Of course, for a more classic option, you can't go wrong with a candle from Diptyque, Nest Fragrances, or Jo Malone. While they're more expensive than your average candle, they're also about a thousand times chicer. If raising a few eyebrows is on your holiday bucket list, though, the RickyHome candles are definitely the better choice.
