Another must have product on your holiday gift list is the reasonably priced line of Febreze home collection products. Even if the gift list is your wish list for Christmas, or it's something for that hard to shop for friend, teacher or book club friend. What is more relaxing than sitting next to a roaring fire and snuggling up with a good book? Well, if you do not have a fireplace available to you, Febreze Home Collection Wooden Wick candles are the next best thing! This items is available in nine premium scents, including holiday scents, such as gingersnap vanilla, which I received. These candles are designed with a wooden wick to recreate the ambiance and sound of a crackling fire indoors. Without even lighting the candle, and just leaving the lid off in a closed home, it smelled like someone had been baking gingerbread all day.  Of course this is not the intended use for the wooden wick candle, and the crackling fire sound is the purpose of this candle. and is designed to help create the ambiance, but if you are a little weird like me and don't like burning your pretty candles, you can enjoy it without burning it, at least for a little while. Each candle comes in a clear glass jar with a Home Collection label, wooden removable lid, and each candles wooden wick burns up to 80 hours!

The fragrance of the candle is highly concentrated, which is why it scented the house without being lit, the scent is a true ginger with a detection of vanilla and other spices. 
I decided to finally bun this one over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend.  Everyone who came into the house kept asking where is the gingerbread, ooh it smells so yummy in here and the like.  The scent was not overpowering and after the day progressed I really didn't notice it amongst the smell of all the other delicious eats on the table. But, apparently if you entered from outside, it was the first thing everyone could smell. his candle also offers a clean burn with no soot residue.
I also received a Febreze Home Collection No Spill Wood Diffuser to try out.  I decided to place this on the windowsill  in the kitchen where the window is always kept open. I received the Anjou Pear Spice and I found the fragrance to be light and gentle.  It was not overly sweet and had the perfect combination of sweet and spice. It is described as the gentle sweetness of fresh fruit lingering in a comforting blend of spices.Most of the time it goes unnoticed amongst the usual kitchen odors, until the breeze catches it and you get a whiff of the ever gentle scent and think, ooh where did that come from.
The final product I received was this cutie above.  This is sure to fit into any holiday home, and I think the best place would be the guest bath during your holiday event.  The Febreze Home Collection Flameless Luminary is my second favorite product in the collection. When you purchase the starter kit it comes with a shade in the the kit, but additional shades may be purchased separately, in a variety of eight additional scents.  I especially enjoyed the Vanilla Frost snowman shade I received. It is described as the comforting scent of vanilla wrapped in a soft harmony of floral and spice. I can't wait to place this in the guest bath at one of our upcoming holiday parties.  It emits a strong long-lasting scent, which makes it perfect for high traffic areas that need freshening throughout the day. I love how it fits into my home decor and looks like a item that would cost more than it does. Take a look at this video to see how it works.

Any one of these products would fit perfectly into your holiday home or that of a friend, boss, teacher, or just about anyone. Pick some of these items up, you will not be disappointed. You can find Febreze on Facebook, You Tube and Twitter.
