An individual’s personal style is something that can set them apart and make them stand out in a room full of people.

Perhaps you’re wondering how you can improve your style and make it more interesting, or you’re at a point in your life that you’re hungry for change. Whatever the case, you can improve your style at any time you want to, just be open to trying something new. Here are practical ways that you can improve your personal style nevertheless.

Know What Look You’re Going For

Give: A Pretty Scented Candle


A candle is always a great gift for someone like a friend, a teacher, a neighbor, or any woman on your shopping list. A good-smelling candle...great. A good-smelling candle in pretty packaging with a cute name, like Bath and Body Works "Sweater Weather"...even better! For someone extra-special, it may not be a big enough or romantic enough gift on its own, but a small travel-tin candle makes for a nice stocking stuffer; and a nice larger candle can accompany a perfume or spa gift.

It's also something you can spend just a little for if you're on a budget, though you can splurge if it's for someone special. Something like a Tocca or a Diptyque candle, for example, isn't just a candle; it's the gift of luxury. A box set of luxe votives or a matching candle and scented oil set are both great ways to upgrade a candle gift. Though just $10 - $20 can get you a great gift candle at a store like Kohl's, Bath and Body Works, or Target. To give as a hostess gift or a gift for someone who is on your $20 and under gift budget, you can pair a nice $5-$10 candle with a matching scented oil and reed diffuser, room spray, or scented hand soap.


For the fashion girl, you can't go wrong with a designer set. So many designers these days are collaborating with home accessory brands, bringing a stylish piece of our favorite designers to everyday home accessories, like candles. Pictured: House of Harlow Trio Gift Set via Anthropologie

For someone who loves home decor, pick a decorative candle that can be put on display, or a pretty votive holder set that can be reused.


For the wine lover, pair a bottle of her favorite wine with these fun Rewined candles that are wine-scented and hand-poured into re-purposed wine bottles.


Pair a candle gift with one of these fancy and adorable Spring's Eden decorative match boxes by Illume.

Another way to upgrade any gift is to personalize it. For a personalized candle gift, you can go with something like a monogram candle or one of these zodiac candles.
