Christmas Gift Guide by Flic Anderson


Are you seeking some serious Christmas gift inspiration? Get cosy, crack open the mulled wine and scoff a mince pie or two, while we provide perfect present ideas for all the favourite people in your life.

We’re especially giddy about introducing our new festive ranges, which are ideal for anyone as fiercely #TeamChristmas as us.

But what about if you’re buying for those who are less Mariah in the ‘All I want for Christmas,’ video and a little more Ebenezer Scrooge, in the first 90% of A Muppets Christmas Carol?

Don’t worry, with a sparkling selection of candles and diffusers in a variety of styles and scents, we’ve got them covered too.

Festive Gifts for Christmas Lovers

Whether it’s for mothers in law, aunties, Secret Santa for your colleagues, or spoiling your besties, if they love Christmas, then they’ll love our brand-new Christmas Couture and Christmas Fayre collections.

Christmas Couture

The festive red and green traditional style packaging on this collection makes us think of Christmases of old, conjuring up images of crackling log fires, nutcracker toys, ivy-strewn fireplaces and giant trees adorned with twinkling lights.

Available as a Triple Votive Set, £12.00, show-stopping Bauble, £12.50 a Gift Box, £10.00, and a Diffuser, £12.00, expect one seriously Christmassy scent that’s spiked with warming apple and cinnamon and a hit of oh-so-festive cloves.

Santa and Mrs Clause apparently have these votives burning in their home and workshops all winter long – just saying.

Christmas Fayre

Christmas Fayre Collection

You know how there are some Christmassy smells that you wish you could bottle up and keep forever? Well, candle lovers, we’ve only gone and done it.

Inspired by some of our favourite tastes of Christmas we bring you Cranberry Punch, which is scented with sparkling cranberries, crushed lime and a dash of rum garnished with star anise and a sprig of mint.

Plum Pudding is a delectable blend of royal fruits, ground nuts, cinnamon and a splash of flaming brandy. Yule Log is scented with rich dark chocolate ganache, fresh clotted cream, a dusting of vanilla icing, and sweet red cranberries.

Each available in large tins for £8.00 – yummy.

Gifts for Pamper Lovers

Do you have someone in your life who lovesa bit of pampering and self-care? Well, our Natural Spa Collection is the one, if you want to give a super thoughtful gift with a luxe feel.

The perfect bathroom addition to long hot baths and DIY beauty treatments, each of the scents in this range comes in a jar candles or diffuser, designed to recreate the luxury of a five-star retreat.

Available in revitalising Zest, Citrus, Fruit, Spice and Floral £12.00 for a Jar Candle or Diffuser.

Gifts for Style Lovers

Buying for people who are obsessed with interiors and creating fabulous vibes at home is one of our favourite things, simply because we have so many options that we just know they’ll adore.

You can’t go wrong with anything from our Signature Collection, offering candles, multi-wick candles and diffusers in three divine scents, with a tasteful pop of rose gold, gold, or silver, which all look equally wonderful in an opulently styled boudoir or a minimal Scandi style living room.

We don’t like to play favourites but the Cerise Diffuser, £25.00 and Candle £20.00, with their dreamy cherry almond scent and beautiful packaging are top of our Christmas list this year.

Shearer Candles Favourites

Amber Noir

Still not sure what to buy?

We’ve never met anyone who didn’t fall head over heels for the sensual and mysterious scent of Amber Noir, available as a large tin, £7.00, Tea Lights £5.00, or Scented Reed Diffuser, £12.00.

Persian Lime

Persian Lime meanwhile is a perennial crowd pleaser, for good reason, bursting with an effervescent citrus fragrance opening with fresh and zesty sweet grapefruit, it’s also available in a variety of candle types and as a diffuser.

Merry Christmas Candle Lovers! x
