I’m a sucker for a good candle: and even burn, great scent and unique jar. But one with a little bit of meaning is even better, and more important these days. If you’ve had to cancel travel plans due to COVID-19 or haven’t been able to get back home, take a deep breath in of a Homesick Candle.

The team at Homesick creates candle scents based on states and countries, events and celebrations. Was on your way to the U.K. (as I was for my now-cancelled honeymoon)? Get a piece of it with their United Kingdom Candle. Missing your home state? Grab your beloved state or even city!

Homesick Candles also make great gifts to help you celebrate or just say “thanks.” If you have loved ones postpone or minimize their wedding, send a Let’s Toast Candle to congratulate them on their nuptials (or just buy one for yourself because it smells like Champagne and who doesn’t want that?!).

Whatever the reason may be, a memorable candle makes a great addition to all homes: it lasts for hours, creates a welcoming space and most importantly provides a little bit of comfort. Oh, and if you’re tired of summer you have to get the Pumpkin Picking Candle to get in the fall mood!
