Yankee Candles

By: Kellie K. Speed, Travel Writer

Yankee Candle Company of Massachusetts has some of the best gift ideas to send for people traveling who may have forgotten a special birthday or anniversary.

Yankee, the leading scented manufacturer, retailer and wholesaler in the United States, started as a 16-year-old student's dream and has emerged into a multi-million dollar business.

By the end of last year alone, Yankee had opened 102 stores in 30 states with 40 more slated to open by the end of this year.

Yankee Candle Yankee has a candle making and car museum on site for travelers who may plan a trip to the South Deerfield, Massachusetts location.

While there trying to decide whether to buy sugared plums or fresh morning scents for your mother, be sure to visit Chandler's Restaurant. The restaurant hosts a room illuminated solely by candlelight. The wine cellar lounge is also a treat being surrounded by an extensive wine selection.

One of the newest scents to arrive, Berry Bramble, is a sweet aromatic blend of strawberries and blueberries.

For more information, call Yankee Candle directly at 413-665-2929 or visit their Web site at
