Ah, the scented candle. That timeless gift that says "I like you enough to spend more than five dollars on you, but I never know what to buy you." This year, skip Bath & Body Works and opt for a more luxurious take on the lovely but impersonal gift. D.L. & Co. has a lovely line of candles housed in shimmering ceramic jars that will be beautiful candle holders long after the wax is gone. Our personal favorite is the Essence of Florets Rare Botanic Candle ($48) for its sweet (though not overpowering) and sophisticated scent.
