Holiday Candles That Give Back

Holiday Scented Candles That Give Back

Light Shine Candles has some awesome holiday scents including the classic Pumpkin Spice, I Love You a Latte, and some unique scents such as Orange + Clove or Pumpkin + Apple + Ginger! These candles are made with non-GMO soy, a cotton wick, a made-in-the USA glass jar, and free of dyes and phthalates. They make your home smell like the holidays and add some love to any space.

Shop Your Local Farmers Market

Farmers Markets are so fun, not only for food, but for seasonal items in general. This time of year farmers markets usually have a variety of fun fall items such as mini-pumpkins and fall floral arrangements. The farms market is a great place to find seasonal inspiration for sprucing up your space. And if you’re hosting a dinner party a great place to find centerpiece ideas! This allows you to support local businesses while making your space cozy!

Cozy Mugs

Inviting your friends over for some hot chocolate, apple cider, or offering a cup of joe to go with that left over pie? Having cozy mugs can be a fun touch! A few cozy mugs I’m loving right now are the World Changer Mug by Give a Damn Goods, Polka Dot Stoneware Mug by Ten Thousand Villages, & the Bible Verse Mugs by Lazarus Artisan Goods. Lazarus Artisan Goods mugs are gorgeous pottery style mugs that are made exclusively in partnership with Lazarus Artisan Goods by Susan Rodehaver of Turtleware Pottery.
