Give the Gift of Family Memories

The holidays always make me nostalgic.  I love finding the perfect gift idea for everyone on my list, but sometimes you manage to hit the jackpot with a gift idea.  This year join me in giving the gift of family memories with Thymes Frasier Fir candles.  If you’ve ever had a fresh Christmas tree then you know the type of memories that I’m talking about.



Let me take you down memory lane.  As many of you know my family and I are North Carolina transplants.  We’re truly New Yorkers and we’re used to snow during the holidays.  I say holidays because there was definitely a Halloween where Riley trick or treated in the snow.  We’re hardcore!  

Living in NY we always got a real Christmas tree.  We usually got it from a store though or one of those pop up Christmas tree spots in the middle of the grocery store parking lot.  I grew up with an artificial tree and never wanted one in my house.  Well, our last Christmas in NY I thought for some crazy reason that we wouldn’t be able to get a real Christmas tree in North Carolina.  It was as if I thought we were moving to the dessert.  So I took my little family in six inches of snow and we went and cut down our last live Christmas tree.  The smell in our house was amazing!  As were the amount of pine needles EVERYWHERE!

When we moved to North Carolina I was literally shocked when I saw all the live Christmas trees.  I seriously don’t know what I was thinking, but my mind was made up and I had promised my husband we would get an artificial tree.  Instead we started a new tradition with these gorgeous Thymes Frasier Fir candles.


Now I was able to have the same amazing smell without all of the needles everywhere.  I have to tell you that this candle will make up for not having the real tree and every time I look at it I’m reminded of the day that we tromped through the snow to cut down our last live Christmas tree.  It’s a thoughtful gift that’s sure to bring back family memories year after year.


Thymes Frasier Fir candles not only smell amazing, but they are stunning.  They are the perfect gift idea that keeps on giving throughout the year and brings people back to their Christmas family memories.  Plus, when you buy one candle from the Frasier Fir Northwoods collection, Thymes plants a new tree.
