When 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.

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.

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

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.
