Homesick Candles

A smell can bring back memories and really make you feel at home. Homesick has an array of candles for different states, cities, and even countries. They also come in different sizes as well. I personally had one from my home state and it actually did remind me of home. If a destination candle isn’t what you’re looking for, they also have other scents available.

Amazon User Review: “I got this as a surprise for my boyfriend. He moved to my state from Texas for college. I wasn't sure about how it would smell but I figured even if he wasn't a fan it would be neat as a decoration for his room. When I surprised him with the candle and he smelled it, he actually got very emotional and started crying because he said the smell instantly brought back so many memories of home.”
