There's something about a fancy candle that just turns your day around. Its gorgeous jar, the luxurious scent it gives off, the way it turns any bathtub into a spa getaway. Candles just make a person happy instantly. Lucky for you, there are plenty of candle gift sets this time of year that will help you save money on these luxury items. Because even though it's just wax, great candles come with a pretty price tag attached to them.

Turning your room into a cozy, lavender-scented den isn't likely going to cost a mere five dollars. And if you want to have more than one scent in your arsenal, your budget starts straining with each wax purchase.
