Herriott Grace: Handmade Gifts by Father and Daughter

Herriott Grace: Lance and Nikole Herriott

Lance & Nikole Herriott

The story of Herriott Grace is all the sweeter with Father’s Day coming soon. It’s one I’ve wanted to share, but something would happen every time their stock was replenished—they’d sell out so darn fast! Which does you no good gift-givers. So I’ve waited.

This month though, this month is different.

Herriot Grace lets admirers know when their beautiful goods are back in stock by way of a monthly newsletter. For June they’ve given us a heads up. Mark your calendars for Wednesday, June 13, at 6pm EDT.

20 Autumn Candles from Clove to Campfire

Costes Orange Candle

There’s just something about this season. Autumn gets here and suddenly I want it to envelop me like a cozy blanket or favorite sweater. The brisk breeze, the turning leaves, the ones rustling on the ground. The scarves, the pecan pie, the chai lattes—I love it all. But what I love the most, yes maybe even more more than the pie, are the smells!

With the window cracked open, warm socks on, and a delicious candle burning, I’m a happy camper. Are you the same way?

I love a good candle. As a gift giver they’re always on my list of gifts for your backup stash. (You know, those things you keep on hand for just-in-case?)

I’ve rounded up some really wonderful ones for you. They’re perfect for a housewarming gift, for new neighbors and for your hospitable host.

From woodsy to spicy, maple and clove, pumpkin and apple, leaves and acorns, chai and bourbon, hearth and campfire—these are the scents of the season and you’ll find them in all kinds of wonderful combinations below.
