We love getting gifts from Red Envelope. Inside a mundane cardboard packing box sits a little treasure: a pretty red box tied neatly up in a ribbon. This 100 percent pure soy wax candle will make the perfect hostess gift for the next dinner party you’re invited to. All Kobo candles are hand-poured, use the highest-quality essential oil, and literally smell like a fruit grove. The wicks are made from environmentally safe cotton, so this is a perfect pick for your ecofriendly pals with stamina: The candles burn for 70 hours.

Kobo Candles, $38, Fresh Currant (cassis, citrus peel, and fir), Fig Verde (fig, cedar, and jasmine), or Flor Nocturnal (cactus flower, jasmine, and hyacinth)
