CREATIVE KIT: You are going to need wax, wicks, candle holders and more, so true beginners might appreciate starting smaller. At The Range, get the Create Your Own Candle Kit for £5.99. It contains everything you need to make two candles and is a great way to get into into the craft.

BUNDLE BARGAIN: If you are already a seasoned crafter, you can use thesprucecrafts.com guide. which explain what you need to know.

As for the materials, you can head to Hobbycraft. Get nine pre-waxed wick assemblies for soya wax for £3.50, a 1kg pack of soya wax flakes for £12, three round wax tins for £5.50 and vanilla candle fragrance oil, 50ml for £9. That’s £30. But buy them all together as the Get Started In Candle Making bundle for £24.25, saving £5.75.

SCENT SENSE: Keep things festive with the right scent for your candle.

Buy 10ml bottles of individual oil with scents like cinnamon bark at Nikura.com for £2.29. Mas em Amazonas, get 10ml bottles of fragrances including Gingerbread or Christmas spice for £1.95.

GO FOR LUXURY: The White Company Winter candle is a favoured festive gift but, at £20, a pricey one. Em vez de, the candle-shack.co.uk Cosy Christmas Candle Kit may be the answer. The luxury kit is slightly pricier at £24, but includes two glossy white candle jars, two silver tins with lids, wax, wood wicks and Cosy Christmas fragrance oil. Make four candles, at £6 each.

RECYCLE: Make your present more eco-friendly by reusing wax where you can. Once your fave candle has burned through, fill the jar with hot water and leave. The residue will float to the top, leaving a disc of wax when it cools, which you can melt and add to wax flakes.

JAZZY JAR: Save even more by recycling jars to use as candle holders. Decorate with paint or make it chic with a string bowjust ensure it’s not near the flame.
