Outside of makeup the Muse is kinda sorta obsessed with tarts and home fragrance oils. Anyone with me here?
Here are a few of my favorite gifts for tart lovers!
I realize there must be at least one person around who is sitting there thinking but what’s a tart? A tart is a tiny wax cake which is placed in a tart warmer. A tart warmer is a bowl with a votive candle under it. The tart is placed in the bowl, the votive is lit, and as the tart melts it releases a beautiful aroma into the air fragrancing your home with any number of lovely scents!
Now Yankee Candle is probably the most well known place around for getting tarts but they are pretty expensive in some cases. A friend of mine calls it burning money whenever I light up a tart!
Best gift idea?
Take a trip to your local Yankee Candle and select any number of their whimsical tart warmers for a gift. Get a really pretty box to put the warmer in than head to some of my favorite haunts for some of thee best tarts on the planet to give along with that beautiful new tart warmer you purchase. The receiver of the warmer and tarts will be absolutely delighted with the gift plus it’s a rather unique experience for many people who are either already into the joys of candles and tarts or for those who never tried them before.
Check out Whiff and Sniff Candles for Winter Wonderland Shooter Packs (12 Tarts for $10)
Whiff and Sniff have fantastic tarts. Each tart is housed in a tiny container so you pop it out, right into your warmer, light, and enjoy!
Single Shooter Tarts are a mere $1 each and available in over 40 scents! Each tart is strong smelling and long lingering and if the Muse dare say better than Yankee Candle Tarts on so many levels.
Currently the turn around time at Whiff and Sniff is a day or two but e-mail and ask to be sure your order will arrive in time for the Holidays!
My second favorite place to purchase great smelling tarts in over 300 scents (TONS of scents to choose from) would be LOL Candles. LOL Candle presents tarts in the standard scalloped design (much like Yankee Candle), PoppTart Design (container), Heart Shaped, or Clam Shell Breakaway Tarts. Prices range from $1.70 per a tart or 12 packs ranging in price from $19-$20.
As with Whiff and Sniff these are sincerely strong smelling and longer lingering. The size of the PoppTarts is HUGE so you can get some strong burn time out of them.
Be sure to check with LOL prior to ordering as turn around time is at 7-16 days. Make sure to e-mail to be sure your order will arrive in time for the Holidays!
The Muse thinks a cute little tart warmer, with some tarts, and a few votives makes the perfect little gift for Christmas. It’s not makeup but it’s just as great.
