Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

We blame those ubiquitous cookie- and pie-scented jarred candles for making this holiday gift go-to seem less than chic. (Oh, a candle...thanks!) Let's get something straight: Candles are the best. They're easy to wrap, look pretty on a shelf, and if you choose the right one, your giftee won't look like they just unwrapped a dirty diaper. Here are ten locally-available candles that make gifting candles cool again.
