Gift Guide Pairings: Coastal Redwood + Mandarin

With a candle like our Coastal Redwood + Mandarin, there’s only one thing that comes to our mind: planning a serious getaway. This candle has top notes of bergamot and mandarin, middle notes of mimosa, coconut, and vanilla, and base notes of sandalwood, making it the ultimate vacation candle for when you need an escape, either physically or mentally. Thus, each item in this particular candle gift guide pairing will pick up on that theme, and we’re pretty sure you’ll be planning a vacation (either for you or your gift recipient…or for you two together) by the end of this blog. Go ahead and get your travel rewards card out now.

First up is simply a classic: The Carry-On by Away Travel. This carry on has revolutionized the way we travel. It has a hard shell to protect all your valuables (like your Coastal Redwood + Mandarin candle), fits in the overhead bin of most major airlines, and has a TSA-approved ejectable USB charger that can charge your phone up to 4 times. They also offer full-size suitcases to be checked, but we love The Carry-On specifically for its compact size and ease of jetting away for the weekend.

Of course, if you give someone The Carry-On, you’re going to have to also give them something to wear on vacation. We highly recommend the Klassy Network for all of your gift recipient’s needs. Personally, we can’t envision a getaway without this Halter Brami Crop, but you really can’t go wrong with any of their bramis. Their entire concept is to ditch the bra—something we can firmly stand behind! Each of their bramis is a bra-top with padding included in whatever size fits best to give you a seamless, smooth look. Your gift recipient will be excited about a new top and absolutely ecstatic about not needing to pack a bra.

Now, to really complete the ensemble, we all know you need killer accessories. That’s why we’ve done the dirty work and sorted through dozens of options to give you the best possible recommendation that pairs well with not only The Carry-On and brami, but also with our Coastal Redwood + Mandarin candle. These Black with White Polka Dot Arches earrings are the final touch to this getaway gift. Handcrafted with polymer clay and a gold diamond-shaped stud, these earrings scream “take me on vacation!” Each pair of earrings from Onyx Clay Co are part of a small batch uniquely crafted to truly make each person shine.

We’re confident that to whomever you gift any of these pairings, they’ll be thankful you did. Whether you gift one item or all the items we recommend, they all make a perfect addition with our Coastal Redwood + Mandarin candle. While you’re at it, take a moment to fantasize about where you would go with all the gifts that go with candles on this list. Now maybe you should just go ahead and book that for you and your gift recipient to really round off the pairings here—a little something for them and a little something for you. It’s only fair!
