"Burke and Hare Co. Candles are my top choice. All of the candles by this company have a much more real and natural scent to them, unlike some cheaper brand candles that have an overwhelming chemical scent to them. Their candles are a go-to for me when picking out gifts for friends."

3. Price's Chef's Candles not only smell great, but they also banish lingering cooking smells. They're super cheap to boot, costing just £3.49.

"I have been buying these candles for almost five years and they are flipping amazing. I had a studio apartment for three years, so you can imagine what it smelled like after cooking fish – which is when I discovered these candles. You light one after cooking and they magically absorb odours. They're not strongly scented, and come in a handy three-pack. I also love the clean-window variety too, which has a fresh cotton scent."

4. If you're into handmade, natural soy candles, Busy Bee Candles will be right up your alley, with prices starting from £4.99.

5. Muji is a total fail-safe when it comes to affordable candles, with prices starting at £4.95 and often being lower when on offer!

6. Parkminster Products' natural soy candles are super affordable, starting at just £5, but look like they cost a lot more.

"My boyfriend got me a couple of these and I think they look so good and far more expensive than they are. Their scent is also incredibly long-lasting, as is the burning time, even for the little ones."

7. Colton Candles make an excellent and thoughtful gift, with personalised candles starting at £11.99 and regular scented candles at £6.99.

8. The Mrs. Meyers Clean Day candles are incredible and only cost around £7, and always seem to be in restaurants in New York, which is a cool vibe.

9. Asda is a great place to pick up some reasonably priced candles while you do your shop.

10. Ikea makes tons of candles in a huge array of scents, starting from just 50p!

11. The Our Own Candle Company are not only excellent candles, but you also have a handy mason jar at the end of it.

12. Spitalfields Candles smell incredible and look super stylish.

13. This Aldi candle is a fantastic dupe for the much pricier Jo Malone Lime, Basil & Mandarin candles. It only costs £3.99, too!

14. Wax Lyrical Fired Earth candles are readily available and smell fantastic.

15. And of course, pop into TK Maxx and Home Sense, because they always have a huge range of discounted candles.
