I have a thing for candles. Even more than their scent, I think I mostly just like the variety of designs they come in. They’re great for styling on a coffee table, bookcase, vanity and are extra useful in the bathroom.

They’re the perfect gift for someone you don’t know that well but still want to show you put in some effort.

This holiday season, if you’re unsure of what to gift that colleague, secret santa, neighbor, hostess, babysitter, drug dealer (just kidding), below are some statement candles that they may even want to keep long after it’s burnt out. No.5 is ideal for stashing whatever it is you need to stash. Two and four work for holding makeup brushes, pencils, even simple flowers.
