We’ve officially reached that annual point where, as a collective unit, we’re all pretty done with winter. We’ve had our fill of snow, seasonal crispness and sweater weather, and all those fun feel-good holidays where you don’t actually have to go anywhere or do anything are long behind us. Now, we’re just faced with a couple of dark, gray months of combatting the cold and the wet—and honestly blankets, no matter how snuggly, can only do so much to fight the battle against winter. So where do you turn when you need a little instant hygge? Winter candles! Warmth and light are two of the coziest things we have access to, so let’s stock up, shall we?

Now let’s get something straight: You can’t be willy-nilly with your candle selection here. Maybe back in October you could have afforded a few dud candles that weren’t that bright or that pretty, but now it’s January—and you need serious backup. I’m talking the most powerful candle vibes you can get. You’re essentially looking for the aesthetic equivalent of hot chocolate with those little peppermint crumbles on top.

If you’re wondering where you’re gonna find this perfect winter-blues-fighting candle, I’ve got some fairly good news for you. I’ve done the heavy lifting here, harnessing the power of the internet to find you only the most perfectly pretty winter candles. You’re one click away from smooth winter cruising all the way to March! (And yes, I know online shopping candles is limiting in that you have no idea what they smell like until they arrive on your doorstep. But guess what—these are so pretty, scent is pretty much secondary.)
