Homemade presents always impress. Make your own scented candles with this easy-to-use kit

Scented candles make a great Christmas gift, but if you want to dial up the originality factor, this make-your-own kit is the way to go. It contains everything you need to create two candles delicately fragranced with zingy neroli, lime and basil. Simply heat the soy wax pellets gently until they turn to liquid, then remove from the heat and add the fragrance. Allow to cool, then pour into the glass containers (using the bars provided to keep the wicks upright). When the candles are set, trim the wicks and you’re good to go. Give them as homemade gifts or buy the kit for someone crafty – either way, it’s a surefire hit that smells as good as it looks.
