Yankee Candle Store For Christmas

We had a fabulous time at the Yankee Candle flagship store in Deerfield, Massachusetts.  We couldn't have picked a better day to head up there if we had tried.  We had beautiful skies and got there just as the doors opened. 




Our first stop was a room we had not seen last time and we spent lots of time picking out some new favorite scents.



We went to check out the mini villages and the younger boys were thrilled to see both a Grinch village and a Harry Potter set!





We moved onto the "snow" room where it snows indoors every 4 minutes and then went to check out all the little shops full of Christmas ornaments, statues, and wonderful displays.





There are lights and trees everywhere!





We went to check out Santa's workshop (which is full of toys of all kinds) and then the candy store.



There are a few rooms with trains circling the ceiling, little kids can line up to sit with Santa, there's just something to see for all ages everywhere you look.

I particularly loved the Vera Bradley and Alex and Ani sections.



We stopped in the central cafe to have a snack and enjoy the fountain.  The boys each picked out a new ornament and then we settled on what we wanted to see before heading to the registers with our purchases.




We capped our day off with lunch out at Red Robin and a fun stop at the largest Barns and Noble my boys have ever seen.. just 30 minutes down the road in Holyoke.  By then my boys were shopped out and it was time to head home.

    1. Yeah they really do have a little bit of everything! I told the boys we need to go earlier next year; perhaps in November so that I can really take advantage. This year I really only bought for me as I had my Christmas shopping mostly done. Not that I'm complaining!

    1. That is a wonderful smell; I like most of their food scents. I tend to like ones like cinnamon, pumpkin spice, vanilla... anything that makes it smell like I've been baking.
