2022 Handcrafted Gifts

Editors’ Choice

French Press Candle Co., Salem

French Press candles are beautifully packaged and come in sophisticated scents like salted sea breeze or black pepper and bergamot. But they don’t just look good and smell good—they also do good. The company donates a portion of its proceeds to animal rescue organizations around the country, a nod to the founders’ love of their French bulldogs. And you can always be sure your candles were made with careful attention to quality: Despite French Press’s growth over the past two years, the owners still make every candle themselves.
