[dropcap]W[/dropcap]hen it comes to candles, there really is a scent for everyone. That's especially true with Homesick Candles, which offers candles that represent everything from "every US state, to multiple cities and countries, to occasions, people and moments," according to the company's website.
Homesick Candles makes hand-poured candles with a natural soy wax blend, 100 percent organic cotton wicks, and custom fragrances. They are cruelty-free, non-toxic, and don't contain any lead, plastics, paraben, phthalates, or synthetic dyes. They really make a great gift, no matter who you're buying for.
To help you narrow down your choices this holiday season and beyond, we compiled some of our favorite scented candles from this candle company.
1. New York Candle
This candle smells like "a crisp fall afternoon in the Adirondacks." It has notes of apple peel, nutmeg, clove, cinnamon, and more.
2. USA Candle
The perfect gift for someone with a lot of flags in their house, the USA Candle smells mostly of apples, vanilla, and cinnamon...just like apple pie.
3. Grandma's Kitchen Candle
This candle promises to smell like "sugar and spice and everything nice," even has base notes of sugar cookies. Yum!
4. New York City Candle
If the New York candle wasn't quite the right choice for your home decor, maybe this NYC-themed one will fit better? The website claims it smells like the "distinctive scents of spring days in Central Park, fine department stores, and concrete." That last one doesn't sound promising, but it really is an awesome smell!
5. SoCal - Southern California Candle
That's right -- Homesick actually breaks up California into north and south for its state candles. This one has scents like orange, sea breeze, and musk.
6. Rhode Island Candle
Do you hail from Rhode Island, but are living elsewhere and missing home? This is the candle for you. It features smells like seashore, hay, and tonka bean.
7. Road Trip Candle
We think it's safe to say that most of us are missing road trips these days. This candle is meant to remind you of driving down the road, "with open windows inviting in hot air and cool breezes."
8. Summer Camp Candle
Those were the days! The Summer Camp candle smells like sandalwood, rosemary, and lavender, with hints of amber and patchouli.
9. New Home Candle
What better gift to give yourself or someone else when they move into a new place?

If you like candles that smell like cookies or cake, this is the one for you.
