“We hope you like these festive treats. Candles for all and pins to share, spread the Christmas cheer everywhere!”

The festive season may be over but I’m determined to keep it alive while burning the amazing candles from this Decembers NPC Crate! I’m not a huge Dr Seuss fan but I did really like the Jim Carrey version of The Grinch so hoped I would enjoy this months crate still. I was not disappointed, in fact, I discovered one of my favourite, if not slightly strange, candle!


Our first candle for this Decembers box was Topple the Tree, a lovely green Christmas Tree and Pine scented candle that captures that great pine smell without being too overpouring.


Next was the red Pomegranate Noir scented candle, Ugly Knitted Jumper, a nice deep scent that reminds me of really nice cologne.


Last but by no means least was one of my no go to candles for when I’m feeling sick and that is the Festive Flu. It has a beautiful blue gradient through it and it’s been an absolute lifesaver while I and the family had a horrid cold over Christmas as it is vapour rub scented! It sounds strange I know and when I saw it on the label I honestly thought there was no way it would work but it smelt surprisingly good and I can’t believe how much it helped us all to feel better!


This pin!! I thought it was funny, appropriate and a genuinely nice looking pin, especially to wear around the festive period, my husband actually wore his on Christmas Day and I wore mine Boxing day and our family that saw them thought they were great. It feels like the pins in these monthly boxes just get better and better every time!


The bookmark in Decembers box was absolutely perfect, the art of Santa with his long beard was lovely and the beautiful rhyming quote was a great choice! “Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn’t before! What if Christmas, he thought, doesn’t come from a store. What if Christmas…perhaps…means a little bit more!”


A great last box of the year, I’ve loved opening these boxes every month and finding some brilliant new candles! NerdPouredCandles are taking a break for the month of January while they catch up after the Christmas rush so sadly there will be no new box for a little while yet.
