James Webb, a Beauty Stylist at our Fashion Valley store in San Diego, shares his three favorite candles to give and receive. They’re gender neutral and ready for warming the home with fragrance this winter.

diptyque Baies: This scent is currently gracing my living room with hints of red roses and currant leaves. It’s inviting, it’s distinctive and it’s a great way to welcome guests into my home.

NEST Fragrances Blue Garden: This candle is extremely special to me. NEST gives a portion of its proceeds to Autism Speaks. The notes are fresh and floral and leave you wanting more.

Voluspa Maison Noir – Crisp Champagne: Voluspa candles are my go-tos for gift giving. They’re packaged beautifully and priced just right. The Maison Noir scent has hints of vanilla and barrel oak. The sparkling brut champagne is a fun match for a NYE party hostess gift, but this candle is great for any occasion.

Tamala, our Everything Specialist Extraordinaire here in Digital Creative, shares her requisites for indulging in a little me-time during this crazy busy time of year.



It’s the holiday season, which usually means I’m multitasking at the highest level. From office parties and baking for the family to being the hostess with the mostess, it can feel like I get stretched too thin in no time flat. Here are my top picks for R&R essentials when I’m able to sneak in a few minutes to pamper myself. Bonus: these all make great gifts for anyone who could use a de-stressor or three.
