“Fornasetti’s Burlesque candle is on my holiday A-list to give and get," says Olivia Chantecaille, creative director of cosmetics company Chantecaille
. "Place one on a vanity for an unexpected design element from an acclaimed Italian artist. The scent is a Mediterranean blend of lavender, cedar, and thyme; once the candle has burned down, it becomes a beautiful vessel for storing cosmetics or small hand soaps."

I couldn't agree more with Chantecaille's advice—I personally use the elegant glass jars in which my candles come for a range of purposes, from an unexpected option for potting succulents to storing pens and pencils on my desktop. Candles—they're the gift that keeps on giving!
