“If you think candles are boring, this wax warmer will melt your heart. Within 10 minutes of turning it on, the wax cubes are melted and have left my entire apartment smelling amazing, while the subtle light looks oh-so decorative. On top of that, it’s flameless, which makes it much safer than a candle, perfect for anyone with a sense of style in your office.”

11. WW Trilogy Candle

“I actually want a spoon so I can eat this candle (don’t worry I’m joking). The combination of currant, ambrosia and sugared berries is heaven and you can honestly smell all three fragrances individually, plus it’s such a pretty pink. Add to that its innovative wooden wick which lets off a soothing woodfire crackle sound when it burns and you’ve got a next-level gift for anyone.”

Any Nespresso lover will appreciate this gift.”
