Your sense of smell can bring on a flood of memories. Butterscotch reminds us of Grandma’s parlor, creamy vanilla brings back memories of holiday baking, and peppermint and gingerbread are the official fragrances of Christmas Eve. That’s why we think scented candles, like the festive choices from Yankee Candle, are what make a house a home. A great candle can help you remember your favorite holiday moments and set the mood for new traditions to come.

This December, the team at Rue each chose a favorite Yankee Candle to help bring the holidays into their own homes. From making a tedious task more merry to enhancing a favorite tradition, we all agreed that there’s just nothing better than the glow of a fragrant and festive Yankee Candle.

For those who are still in the midst of the shopping scramble, Yankee Candle has some great last minute gifts, incredible 4 for $20 deals, and even something for the person who has everything – e-gift cards! If anything, you’ll be able to enjoy the spirit of the holidays just a little bit longer.
