Win a yankee candle advent calendarWin a Yankee Candle Advent Calendar

So, it’s November. We have celebrated or gritted our teeth through Halloween and Bonfire night. Is it too early to mention Christmas?!

I hope not because today I am loud and proud with the Christmas spirit! I have to really. Advent starts in 23 days and I have a corker of a gift for one of my readers.

One of you will win a Yankee Candle Advent Calendar.

Over the last few years, what I would call gift advent calendars have grown in popularity. Why have a simple cardboard calendar with a Christmas scene behind each window, when you can have chocolate? Why have chocolate when you can have pretty much anything you want in an advent calendar?! Cosmetics, alcohol, toys, you name it.

One of the most popular calendars is a Yankee Candle calendar. Each day, when you open a door, you will find a festive tea light or one of 4 votive’s. I love the idea that every night when you’re all sorted, the kids are in bed, glass of mulled wine in hand, blankets and a movie, you can enjoy a new fragrance. Or, when you’re stuck working at your desk until the wee hours, hopefully a new candle a day and a gorgeous smell, will help you stay in the Christmas Spirit!

The fragrances included in the Carousel include: Candy Cane Lane, Winter Glow, Snowflake Cookie, Icicles, Bundle Up and Spiced Orange. Each Tea light burns for approximately 4-6 hrs and each votive, up to 15hrs.
