Candle Warmers for Cozy Scents and Ambience
Tarts are perfect if you can’t keep flames in your house due to a small child or curious pet. Amazon

Ever lit a candle...then a few hours later left the house and wondered, “Did I blow that out?” Wax warmers take the potential scandal out of candles but give you the same warm kiss of light and scent. Some even double as mug warmers!

Buy one of these to reflect every mood, from Santa Claus to sea glass mosaic to a simple farmhouse-inspired design.

The one thing a candle warmer doesn’t have, for better or worse, is a light-emitting flame. But many warmers feature a bulb inside to give off that warm, flattering glow.

Pop some paraffin cubes on the dish of this versatile dual-level ceramic style. Alternately, remove the dish so you can place a glass-covered pillar right on the base.

Using a jar candle inside a wax warmer works the same way tarts do. Just place the glass on the warming plate, plug it in and presto, change-o: flameless candle!

So. Cool. This model works for your scented jars...or your hot beverages! That means no more annoying microwave trips.

If the idea of a mug warmer immediately makes you catastrophize (liquid beverage + electrical device = potential disaster), worry not: Any reputable combo candle/cup warmer features a heating plate coated in waterproof thermal conductive glass, so no worries if you accidentally spill.
