The Ultimate Guide to Cozy Christmas Candles

If you’re anything like me, you always have at least one candle burning on winter evenings. I have quite the collection of candles, but these are my favorite candles during the Christmas season.



I LOVE Target candles. They are affordable ($5 for small, $10 for medium, and $15 for huge) and they burn all the way to the end of the wax. I get so annoyed when there is still wax on the side of the jar and the wick is gone.

Merry and Bright: Target’s website describes this scent as “wine and spice.” I love this warm scent that just reminds me of cooking in a warm house during the Christmas season.

Sleigh Ride: I couldn’t find this candle on the website, I think it was a candle that was available last year. I found a similar one called “Cozy Nights.” This scent is lighter than Merry and Bright with a little bit of peppermint in it.

Nordic Pine: This was also a candle that was only available last year (sorry!) but it is similar to the next candle on this list, Fresh Balsam.


These two candles were on sale in the seasonal aisles of my local Wegmans. I couldn’t find them on the website. I guess I should have checked out these candles before I wrote a post!

Fresh Balsam: Almost every candle brand has this type of scent. It smells like the dream Christmas tree. We have a fake tree so I love lighting this and pretending ours is real!

Twisted Peppermint: This is another popular candle scent during the winter, and for a good reason. It is a little strange because I usually associate peppermint with a cool scent, but obviously this is a warm peppermint scent. Burning this one and the Fresh Balsam candle at the same time is the best combination!

What are your favorite Christmas candles?
